About two weeks ago we covered the latest 7″ single from Brooklyn super group The Babies. Now, today, we have the original debut 7″ from these guys. The 7″ was put out by Wild Word Records, and they’re actually sold out of them at this point, but there’s a message there that says a repress is coming soon. Be patient, we’ll just have to wait for that one. As opposed to the latter 7″, Cassie Ramone takes lead vocal duties on this one while Kevin Morby takes care of the guitar. Justin Sullivan plays the drums, and Nate Stark plays the bass. These guys all play in other bands from New York – Vivian Girls, Woods, Bossy, and Stupid Party, respectively.
I know I said this before, but switching back and forth between the two 7″ singles from this band, it’s almost like two completely different bands. That would be due to the vocal switch up, as Kevin Morby takes the mic on the latest Babies 7″, while Ramone holds down the vocals on this one. The 7″ kicks off on the poppy self-titled track “All Things Come to Pass”, and this one is bound to put a smile on your face. Ramone reminds us not to be “sad when it’s over and done”, but that’s posing to be very difficult considering how uplifting and happy this song can be. Flipping over to the b-side “Caroline”, they change things up a bit. For the first two minutes of the track, Morby builds up the momentum with some fantastic guitar work, and slowly but surely he is joined by the rest of the band. They begin to get louder as the cymbals start crashing, and Ramone sings almost as if she’s trying to get somebodies attention. In this case, it’s Caroline. Check it out for yourself right below!
