SYNDICATE
Posted by: Dave on October 20, 2006 at 11:44 am

ChinUpHarnessSound: Up-tempo indie-rock with a bright, jittery jangle. Synths and organs regularly add atmospheric texture, along with cameos by cello, vibraphone and harmonica.
Vocals: Jeremy Bolen’s poetic, lyrical barrages affect an artiness that mostly cuts above the mix, but occasionally drifts back in hushed or achy tones.
Heavy Rotation track:Water Planes In Snow
Medium Rotation tracks:This Harness Can’t Ride Anything”; “Islands Sink“; “We’ve Got to Keep Running”; “Mansioned
Explicit Lyrics*: none
Recommended: If you like your music cerebral and obtuse, but in a head-bobbing, easy-to-swallow package. The first half of the album is significantly stronger than the second half.
Grade: B (1st half = A-; 2nd half = C+)
