My Life In Rain

This Band is Killing Me

Allied

This Rockville, MD band fits right in among their peers in the DC area. I’m having trouble putting my finger on a way that they stand out of the crowd; maybe they don’t. This is pretty standard, by the numbers DC post hardcore/emo/whatever.

I would imagine that it’s the kind of thing that takes about 3 listens to sink in, but then again I’m on listen number 4 and it hasn’t yet. This is not to say that this is a bad record, it’s just not very memorable to ears that would rather hear Fugazi, Jawbox, or Rites of Spring. There’s obviously some talent here. They do manage to build a few interesting moments here and there, but it never extends through an entire song and much less the whole CD. Your time and money would be better spent other places.
