Lay The Buddha Down (self-released)
This EP will make you wish Addison would hurry up and release a full album. With crunchy, jagged rock guitars and melodic vocals, “Freeze Out” falls at the heavier end of the indie spectrum. Addison has been around for a while and it shows — its sound is tight and well arranged. Catchy and immensely likeable.
