Theset - Never Odd or Even

Visiting Winnipeg this Saturday, Feb. 7 to play a show at The Church Basement, Victoria rockers Theset and their debut CD Never Odd or Even are best described as the alternative rock that is being touted by most radio stations these days as the new fad for young people. With a sound that’s similar to a happier/faster version of bands such as Blue October and Chevelle, Theset doesn’t have anything that is uniquely different from your everyday Top 20. Although the band does offer some talented guitar riffs within some of their songs, such as in No Such Thing as Stars, there is still nothing memorable about Theset, and worse, nothing stopping them from being another case of white noise that is played on your drive home.
