Two Tongues - Two Tongues Review E-mail
What happens when two emo bands get together? You get a brand new emo band! But it's new and improved. Instead of singing whiny songs about lonely nights, they sing whiny songs about their friendship. How precious.
This Will Destroy You,Lymbyc Systym - Field Studies Review E-mail
User Rating: / 3
The “Field Studies” split between Lymbyc Systym and This Will Destroy You is an intermingling of two bands and three genres, a beautifully intricate style combining rock, classical, and electronic. This intriguing genre of post-rock has two goals. The first is to present rock instrumentation in a different style, and the second is to write music in a style implementing the qualities of other fine arts such as novel and theater. The songs are instrumental, yet present this artistic quality in such a distinct manner that they can be divided into theatrical elements.

The Killers - Day And AgeIf the cliché antidote, “Don't judge a book by its cover,” could be restructured for music, it would be, “Don't judge a band by its radio hits.” This phrase has never been more truly attributed than to The Killers and their new release, “Day and Age.” Though the vapid lyrics of “Somebody Told Me” were enough to cause bleeding ears by the incessant plays the song received in 2004, the latest release includes musicality, ingenuity, and profound lyrics – at least when compared to the lines “Somebody told me that you had a boyfriend that looked like a girlfriend,” etc.

Written by Charles Roberts   
In a genre decayed by $100 dollar tickets, egg-white noodling, cyclical farewell and comeback tours, and a Jerry-less Grateful Dead, Umphrey’s McGee’s Mantis proves the jam band culture still has a vital pulse. Though not an emigration from UM’s previous efforts, the band’s latest CD marks a new, telescoped focus on melodic rock and strays from the country and calypso infused endeavors of the band’s laconic history.
