Adventures / Run Forever, “Split” EP

cover - adventures run forever splitPairing Adventures with Run Forever is such a ridiculously perfect idea, it's basically one of those "shut up and take my money!" releases. Adventures' dreamy indie pop has a certain angular melodicism to it that hints at part of the band's involvement with Code Orange Kids. It especially comes out in the feedback-drenched ends to their songs. Run Forever, however, works it a little differently. Rather than fading out their songs, they opt for epic intros, leading into harmonies suited perfectly for lifted hands and heartfelt sing-alongs. The bands compliment one another, and they're both on the rise, so why wouldn't the two acts come together? While both acts do what they do well, this split single works because they're both best in small doses. Run Forever's "Lost the Feeling" comes in with punchy guitars, chugs through, and is gone in under two minutes. It rocks an early Alkaline Trio vibe, kind of reminding me "I Lied My Face Off" in terms of lyrical delivery. The rest of the tracks are decent and well-executed, but much like Run Forever's last LP, Settling, this split EP is a nice listen through, but not something I think I'll find myself returning to on any sort of regular basis. The split is available on 7-inch vinyl and digital download from the No Sleep Records store, and the record comes out on January 28. Pressing information is as follows: 20 Test Pressing (Black) 125 Coffee w/ Creamer (2014 Subscription) 300 Blue 300 Transparent Orange 500 Half Red/Half Light Blue You can stream a track from each artists at Alternative Press.

Mixtapes, “Ordinary Silence” LP

NSR093The longer Mixtapes has been around, the more I appreciate them. The group has an innate ability to write pop songs that rock. The harmonies on Ordinary Silence can certainly be sugary-sweet, but offset by lyrics like those in album-opener "Bad Parts," when Maura Weaver sings "I want to break their fucking heads." It's a band that traffics in contrasts. Just for example, Ryan Rockwell's vocals get a little nasal, but they counter Weaver's nicely on the dual harmonies, smoothing out as they do her voice, which cuts like a clarion. Both singers, however, manage to sing softly and sweetly on acoustic tracks such as "gravel (interlude)." By the way -- big thanks to Mixtapes for minimizing the acoustic numbers on this release. With the exception of the interlude, this is an electric record all the way through. While I appreciate the tonal differences the change instrumentation offers, the band's insistence on featuring acoustic numbers on every release has a tendency to muddle what to expect. The band's essentially a pastiche of pop-punk, culling the best from the '90s boom. They lift big guitars from classic-rock influenced alternative acts, introspective lyrics from the more emo bands, and galloping drums from ... well, everyone on Epitaph in 1996. Mixtapes know how to craft a song with big choruses, finger-pointing verses, and quietly crooned intros. Their songs are basically engineered for sing-alongs. Take a look at "You Look Like Springtime" -- sing-along intro, bouncy middle for jumping up and down, handclaps around the start of the last quarter, and jesus fucking christ, how can you not have this song stuck in your head? It's nigh-insidious, dammit. "Swirling" is pretty much riffy prettiness, as well. [embed][/embed] Ordinary Silence can be gotten from the No Sleep Records store on a pressing of 700 on grape ice cream vinyl. The 200 on Coke bottle clear were only available in the 2013 No Sleep subscription series, and the 300 hot pink have sold out. Banquet Records has 300 on fence brown, and Hot Topic has 500 on ice cream cone. Damn, right?

The Casket Lottery, “Real Fear” LP

cover-casket-lottery-real-fearWhen a band returns with their first LP in a decade, the expectations are high. The Casket Lottery's Real Fear -- out today via No Sleep Records -- is their first all-new full-length since 2002's Survival Is For Cowards. It'd been teased earlier this year, when "The Door" was released as a 7-inch in August. That single showed many of the familiar Casket Lottery tropes: the quiet-loud-quiet-screaming-breakdown dynamic that served them well over their career, but also teased at electronic flourishes and a wider sonic range than their last LP. One can't help but think back to a few years ago, when the Casket Lottery's Kansas City brethren the Get Up Kids released their Simple Science EP as a precursor to There Are Rules, which was their first full-length in almost seven years. That group's "Keith Case" was a departure far afield from where we'd last heard the group, which may account for the fact that reissues of the Get Up Kids' earlier efforts on Doghouse seemed to sell better than There Are Rules, which sounded as if the band had been listening to an awful lot of New Order and Flock of Seagulls. On Real Fear, the band's not so much taking a giant leap ahead as they're taking a big step. "The Door" is easily recognizable as the Casket Lottery, as is "In the Branches," the album's first proper track after the "Blood on the Handle" intro. It's tracks like "The Moon and The Tide" -- which features '80s horror synths and processed vocals -- that really make you see that the band is not the same group of individuals you loved in high school. And they shouldn't be -- if you want an album that sounds like what you used to listen to, go listen to that. Alternately, take a listen to the album all the way through, and appreciate the fact that the Casket Lottery has changed things up gradually. The group's easing you into what they're doing, as opposed to either mining the past for old glories or simply deciding on a new course, damn the torpedoes. By the time you reach "Baptistina," which features a basic train-song drumbeat and progressive series of bass chords, you've come to expect the keyboards and quieter vocals, so the explosion into the old-school Casket Lottery's sound, all screamed vocals and riffs, what was once expected in now surprising, and you understand what they've done. Now, expectations inverted, flipped, and rearranged ... what do they do next? It's available on a myriad number of vinyl colors from the No Sleep store for $12 -- 300 light blue transparent, 500 light tan opaque, and 500 on 180-gram black.

Big ups for the use of gang vocals, Zithromax Foodborne Illness. Their collective voice gives extra resonance to the songs, 500mg Zithromax Foodborne Illness, especially on "Walking."
