Speaking of our Conference Call series, remember when Colour Revolt's Jesse Coppenbarger performed the inaugural one back in July? That was just before CR released their latest, The Cradle, an album that I enjoyed and blogged about on that other blog I used to blog on:
A lot of these tunes are angular, jagged, ’90s-influenced rock tracks with plenty of dirty, hard-edged licks and half-screamed, verbose, acerbic lyrics; brings to mind acts like Seam, Silkworm and Chavez. They also have a nuanced, textured side that reveals itself on ballads like “Everything Is the Same.” I really like album-opener “8 Years,” which seems to tell the tale of the band’s rocky history, complete with aggressive, road-weary lyrics and a rapid, urgent delivery.
Colour Revolt will play tonight at Mercy Lounge, with Tallest Trees appearing in support. Tickets are $10 and still available.
