Big Awesome is a three-piece from South Carolina who have this indie take on powerpop going on on “Birdfeeder”. Or just call it nineties emo with Braid influences and be done with it.  The four songs on this EP come with enough bounce and energy to get you on your way but they’ve added all these intricate little guitar swirls and busy start/stop rhythms to show off their Minus The Bear appreciation. But then there’s “Drawing A Line In The Sand” which sounds like The Menzingers.

For just four songs they have quite a lot going on but pull it off nicely and if they can keep this up throughout a full-length, they might just live up to their name.
