"It's only Slightly Legal, not quite a major crime," boasts the last track "Damn Good Story To Tell" as the College Station, Texas based band fills the air with upbeat, feel good resonance. Recently the band was recognized by Texas A&M's Campus Newspaper The Battalion and has been gaining popularity since their debut album "EP" released at Schotzi's Bar in College Station on April 23.
Slightly Legal is inspired by a large musical background spanning all genres of music Slightly Legal has a unique mix of sounds. S.L. has been described as a mixture of Texas Country, Southern Rock, Funk, and even Punk. The lyrics by Kleypas and the musical talent of the rest of S.L. makes every song different and musically Dynamic. S.L. is striving to be a band anyone can listen to and appreciate the music, and not just your ordinary textbook “Texas Country” band. With songs that relate to the every day life of college age individuals the songs have received very positive approval from those that have heard them. The new slightly legal EP has it all with songs about living and loving life (Man I Wanna Be, Texas Highway), partying with good friends and cheap “drinks” (Damn Good Story to Tell, Keystone Keys), or just a little bit of romance to make things interesting (Forever Girl, Lost in Love) there is a song for you.
Once I heard this CD, I wanted to share it with the world not because it is an awesome compilation of musical genres, but because Slightly Legal's drummer, Oz Cantu is my brother. Even if this wasn't my brother's band, I would still listen to the music because it is just that damn catchy. Just the other day I woke up mumbling under my breath the lyrics to "Texas Highway" as I brushed my teeth.
