That's all The Early Republic is, really. As perfectly molded as its members may be for its sound, as practiced as its stage presence appears, as lowest-common-denominator dance-y as its music sounds and as good-time-inspiring as it seems to be for its loyal fans, the band is nothing more than the latest regurgitation of another tired old sound. Par for course, it seems, from certain sects of the Dallas music scene.
And what makes it all so frustrating: People keep supporting these products—which, let's face it, is all they are, considering that there doesn't appear to be much artistic merit behind these projects.
And so it goes, I guess: Welcome to the vicious cycle of Dallas music.
