CD Review 9

Artist: Every Avenue
Title: Shh, Just Go With It
My Picks: 1 2 3 4 5 7 8 9 11

Genre: Emo Power-Pop-Rock

I’m fairly certain that we had their EP, Ah!, in rotation last year. I have no idea if it made it to the library or not. Tracks 3 (Where Were You) and 4 (Think of You Later) were on it. They’re a little different on this album. I like the versions on the EP better.

This band’s “album art” is all blue and pink and gives me a headache if I look at it too long. They’re playing at Warped Tour. The guy’s voice is a bit different from the new, typical sounds of pop-rock. The album goes downhill toward the end and I got bored. It’s a bit of a letdown from the EP.

RIYL: All Time Low and Mayday Parade

CD Review 8

Artist: The Less
Title: Loud Machines
My Picks: 1 2 3 4 7

Genre: Local (Atlanta) / Pop Rock

I first saw these guys at NBT last summer playing with Holiday Parade and Permanent Me. They’re from outside of Atlanta and are pretty nice.

They’re a pop rock band with some keys and acoustic guitar mixed in (along with strings on track 6).

I <3 this CD. All the tracks are good but my faves are in the picks. They’ve got a new song on MySpace that I like. You can also check them out on YouTube, they have dance episodes with their drummer, Casey which they call “Casey dance-isodes.” They’re amusing.

RIYL: Holiday Parade, Permanent Me, Pop Rock!
