Reaching out of the ever-growing Denver/Boulder music scene, Homebody’s album provides a feeling of dependability and comfort. The songs are steady, melodic, but unique. Check this album out for something new, but in the same vein as your favorite post-DeMarco bands.
Remember Pinback? Remember how records like Summer In Abaddon made you want to sit on a bench and think about thinking about thinking about your angst? This record is a 2015 version of that, and thank goodness, because we all needed an updated soundtrack for such activities. Fraternal Twin has a real talent for creating songs that weave so well together while standing on their own. Cue introverted music time, now.
Providing that exact mix of adorable melody and vocals in tandem with intense lyrics like, “I hope you get mugged on your way home tonight,” El Hollin are a beautiful mix of bittersweet sentiments. This album feels refreshing and different, and is worth a few listens until you’ll be humming along with them.
