SYNDICATE

ColdWarKidsLoyaltySound: Nathan Willett’s jagged, pained and desperate howls (which occasionally turn into creepy falsetto croons) guides you through Cold War Kids vintage-flavored, poetic indie rock – which can be stomping and bluesy, chill and psychedelic, spirited and barroom-esque, driving and urgent or sad and reflective.
Heavy Rotation tracks: “On the Night My Love Broke Through”; “I’ve Seen Enough”
Medium Rotation tracks: “Something Is Not Right With Me”; “Mexican Dogs”; “Golden Gate Jumpers”; “Dreams Old Men Dream”; “Against Privacy”
Recommended: Cold War Kids’ collision of old and new sounds makes for some of the freshest music out there today. However, this collection of songs isn’t quite as captivating or developed as the material on their debut Robbers and Cowards (my #21 album of 2006). And the three mellowest, most somber songs on here drag, grate and suck out some of the good energy.
