Album Review
Eme O
Reviewed 2011-03-29
Indie punk/rock. Male vox, guitar, drums, bass. Combo of two self-released eps. Music is much the same from track to track, sounds like a party band, music to drink beer to. (Or to listen to while holding a beer and bobbing one's head. Or the beer may be set aside while one shakes a fist emphatically and says "f--- yeah!") Zippy, not much space between songs and songs mostly start off at a sprint. Vocals are yelled and a bit hard to make out,
but seem to strive for topicality and awareness. No FCCs detected. --Eme O.

1) Standard punk/rock party band song. Lyrics kick in at 2:27.

2) Starts off with a bit of a stutter step, then evens out around 2:22. Slows down around 1:34, vox and bass
have a moment before the band rejoins. Another lull, bass solo around 0:50 before the band rejoins.

* 3) Starts off with a drum solo. Driving, aggressive, yelled vocals. Everyone into the mosh pit.

4) Alternates between moods. Verses are the standard yelling. Choruses a bit smoother. 15-second fade-out

5) Marching drum beat to start. Guitar comes in at 2:46, adding to the doomy atmosphere. Melody at 1:45. Vox speak of fear/paranoia. Feedback to end things.

* 6) Feedback to begin, then heavy drum beat, then melody (@ 2:34). Song ends around 0:08 and you get to listen in while the band talks amongst themselves.

* 7) Starts out with choppy guitars, rising emotion. Crescendo at 2:07 and then things settle into a groove. Guitar part sounds a little like "Barracuda"

8) Rollicking beat. Vox in a slightly higher register. A song for explorers or hippies ("It's time to live together. We can survive to love one another.")

9) A slow-ish beginning, picks up at 2:57. Brief lull about a minute later before the beat picks up again. Song about finding meaning in life before you die, or something.

10) Vox precede instruments by a few seconds. Bass gets some attention. Rhythm changes, becoming uneven, around 1:20. Song ends with the query "What does it mean to you?"

11) Quick drums followed by quirky, Elfman-like opener. Song about how our mistakes won't matter when we cease to exist.
