Salt Lake City's Les Sages are four brothers with a ton of talent and they are not afraid to show it with their new release, "Share This" off Deep Elm Records. To describe the band's over all sound is kind of hard to do since they mix elements of ambient/spacey rock with more radio friendly vocal harmonies that would make Taking Back Sunday quake in their boots. Which honestly is a good thing for them since it doesn't pigeon-hole them into one certain genre, giving them the ability to reach out to fans of multiple musical tastes.

Every track is solid and well-written. And I think "The Soldier's Mark" is probably one of the best tracks off the record, incorporating soft piano over a spacey background with catchy (almost cliche) sing-along-able lyrics. It has a very strong feel to it that makes you want to hear it over and over.

Vocally, they share the reigns of singing equally so it's not fair to call just one of them the lead singer. And I think that's what I like about them the most. You hear the same emotion and passion coming from multiple voices. It makes it more meaningful and heartfelt.

Now granted, this is probably more mainstream sounding than what most people would be comfortable with when it comes to the more traditional Indie/ambient bands or sound. But honestly, this CD is a refreshing listen. I know I'll be listening to it.
