Save Ends, “Warm Hearts, Cold Hands” LP

cover - save endsFun times with indie-pop from Boston's Save Ends. Their debut full-length after several years of EPs, Warm Hearts, Cold Hands is a harder-edged Dollyrots or Mixtapes. It's super-poppy, and the whole album is pretty much "Harmonies! Energy! Riffs!" for its entirety. Save Ends really aim for energetic songs, but the lyrics drag everything down. It's not that the music isn't good -- the riffs are catchy, the keys are nice when they come through, and the bass and drums make for a head-nodding beat. It's more that the songs contain lyrics talking about falling down, blood draining from arms, things breaking down, and feeling alone. Granted, the songs try to aim for a positive outlook, but the optimism doesn't come through nearly as clearly as it should. "Skeptical Sons/Curious Daughters" works that balance pretty well, but everything else seems to get mired in the darkness, finding it difficult to look toward a sunnier horizon. Additionally, the keys really don't come through in the mix as much as I'd like them to. "A Life They Wrote" and "Kurzweil" have them in there, somewhere, but it's almost like they're more hinted-at than actually acknowledged. Maybe I want the band to be more Anniversary than Get Up Kids. Hell, I'd be happy if they were "Mass Pike," but it seems they're aiming for more "Ten Minutes."
You can buy Save Ends' Warm Hearts, Cold Hands from the Tiny Engines store on vinyl. First pressing info is as follows: 105 Blue with White + Green Starburst, 130 Transparent Fiery Orange, 150 Transparent Light Blue, and 215 Opaque Gray. The opaque grey's kind of marbled, FYI.

Diflucan Alternative

tguk_landscape_color_final_72dpi Diflucan Alternative, Back in December, I interviewed Get Up Kids' frontman Matt Pryor for a feature in the Pitch. That feature ran in last week's issue, and turned out really well. However, there were portions of the conversation that really didn't fit into the article or go with the angle I was pursuing.

However, as the first Get Up Kids full-length in nearly seven years, There Are Rules, comes out tomorrow, Diflucan Alternative australia, I felt it'd be nice to share this part of the interview, wherein Pryor discusses the band's approach to vinyl releases.

I know the original plans for There Are Rules had been to put it out as a series of EPs. What changed that?

A cost-benefit analysis, Diflucan Alternative. It was going to cost us more to make them and it was going to cost fans more to buy them. After putting out that first one [Simple Science], we realized that people, especially the media – and I think probably the fan, too – don't take EPs as seriously as they do albums. I think we're eventually moving toward a singles culture in the music industry, but I don't think we're there yet, 200mg Diflucan Alternative. At least not in indie rock. Diflucan Alternative, I think we're there for hip-hop and pop music, but we're definitely not there for what we do. Which is fine, you know?

It's either the two-song 7-inch or the full release, and anything in between is seen as kind of a toss-off?
No, I think it's that there's a full release, and anything else is a promotional item. But, we're doing a 7-inch for this record, Diflucan Alternative india, and those things are important to us as music fans and collectors and whatnot, so we'll continue to do them.

You guys got your start releasing 7-inches. How many did you release before you put out a full length-proper?
Three. We put out a 7-inch ourselves, and then Doghouse put out our 7-inch, and this label out of Florida called Contrast – I don't think it exists anymore – put out one, and those two 7-inches became our first EP, which was on Doghouse. Does that make sense?

Would you consider yourself in the collector nerd realm, Diflucan Alternative. I know Simple Science came out on four different colors.
At least. There were two different colors of a 10-inch version of it, 500mg Diflucan Alternative, too. I am not as much of a collector as I used to be, because I've got mouths to feed, you know. But that's something we've always done, and tried to do. On A Wire came out on a picture disc and 180-gram vinyl, and there's always been lots of colors of stuff. 50mg Diflucan Alternative, So, now that we're in complete control of everything, we just take it to the nth degree, 'cause we just think they're cool.

You can pick up the Get Up Kids' new album on CD via the Amazon link above, or grab it on vinyl from their store at Blue Collar Distro, along with the "Automatic" 7-inch.
