MELEE Rocks! Devils & Angels

I enjoy a good pop track now and then, and the LA Band Melee has some great tunes for your listening pleasure. I recently listened to their latest CD, Devils & Angels, and I have to say that they have a very good sound! The opening track, Built To Last, is excellent - it keeps playing over and over inside my head all through the day. Sometimes that can suck, but I really enjoy their riffs and tight sound.

If you haven't heard about Melee yet, they are a group of 4 guys (yeah, Boy Band!) out of L.A. It appears that they haven't had much airplay locally but have made some major inroads throughout Europe. Odd? Recently, their music has been featured on a few movie and TV soundtracks (Sydney White with Amanda Bynes, etc.) ...Anyway, they write their own songs for this CD and also do a fun cover of the Hall & Oates classic, You Make My Dreams!

They are a band with a conscience, as they support causes through record sales such as Orangewood Pals, an organization that helps improve the lives of Orange County California's abused and neglected children. That's all the more reason to check out this CD and discover a hidden gem in this band!
