Breton Other People’s Problems CD/LP
Breton, a four-piece electronic band from London, has released their first full-length album, Other People’s Problems. This album contains unique orchestral samples from the German composer, Hauschka, which are vigorously chopped up and lined with electronic beats and catchy synthesizer phrases. The lead singer Roman Rappak holds a high energy throughout the LP with a few exceptions on softer tunes, and has a similar sound to the guys from Bloc Party or the Kooks. There are elements of indie rock, hip-hop, and touches of dubstep throughout Other People’s Problems, which keeps the songs diverse, not knowing which kind of tune, will follow the last. Breton has achieved a fun album, with tunes like ‘Pacemaker’, ‘Wood and Plastic’ and ‘Jostle’.
Ceremony Zoo CD/LP
Ceremony released their fourth studio album, Zoo, which is their first release with Matador Records. Zoo is quite different from the aggressive and violent material Ceremony has released in the past, which isn’t too surprising. Like their songs, Ceremony can be unpredictable, and their change in style from hardcore to more of an old school punk sound on Zoo seems only natural for the band. While the tempo has been slowed down on the album, there is still a raw energy that is gloomy yet satisfying. Songs like ‘Hysteria’, ‘Brace Yourself’ and ‘Video’ are especially good, although this album is best listened to as a whole. Zoo clocks in just over 35 minutes, and the album only gets better with each listen.
Youth Lagoon The Year of Hibernation CD/LP
Boise, Idaho may not be synonymous with gorgeous, ethereal dream-pop, but 22-year-old Trevor Powers certainly helps build the foundation with his project’s debut record. His emotional, yearning and unique-sounding vocals echo in the distance of cozy guitar-and-bass (often blending together with a hypnotic synthesizer/piano) melodies. The sound comes full circle with an essence that glows like warm, fuzzy nostalgia – it’s an excellent example of how lo-fi can achieve beauty that studio-slick production values cannot. I really appreciated the down-to-earth lyrics as well, such as the laid-back assertive attitude in “Cannons” (“I have more dreams than you have posters of your favorite teams / you’ll never talk me out of this.”) The empowering, sunlit “Montana” is another high point – it builds from a dusty piano ambience into a wonderfully memorable crescendo with thoughtful lyrics (“there’s a spirit in Montana and in your chest, a soul / oh, what a soul…”)
Last Friday, April 5th; there was a show at the West Haven American Legion, with performances by Daytrader, Code Orange Kids, Heavy Breath, Pentimento, Full of Hell, Birds in Row, and Night Owls. Bands from all over the place, including NY, PA, France, and of course CT, brought a diverse combination of sounds to the evening. From hardcore and screamo to melodic and pop punk, there was a little something for everyone. All the bands were solid, especially Code Orange Kids, Heavy Breath, and Birds in Row. Keep a look out for any band from this night’s line up, they bring the energy and they all rock. Check out their web pages:
