SYNDICATE
Posted by: Dave on March 20, 2006 at 2:43 pm

Sounds: Piano-driven pop with sweet harmonies, jangly guitar rock with twangy touches and ramshackle roots rock.
Lyrics: Suicidal impulses, despair, unclean living and general negativity disguised in bright melodies.
Playlist Partners: ‘90s Wilcoicon, The New Pornographersicon, Ben Foldsicon, Elvis Costello and the Attractions, R.E.M.icon
Heavy Rotation tracks: None
Medium Rotation tracks:Rifle Called Goodbyeicon“; “My Life As A Creepicon“; “Cemetery Rowicon” (featuring Colin Meloy of The Decemberists on lead vocals); “Out There On the Maroonicon
Recommended: Though there are twisted and amusing lyrical gems throughout and the music is consistently strong, many songs lack memorable hooks or are little more than a hook and a groove. This is a notch below the Minus 5’s standard.
Grade: B-
