Valve

Parallel You

MoodFood

The jacket shows a photo of a bunch of guys that I could have possibly gone to high school with, and yet the sound emitted from their debut album is everything but something you’d stumble across in my modern suburbia. A big music goal they fulfill on this album is the difference in each song. Most records have songs that sort of blend from one to the next. While Parallel You has the same hauntingly melancholy, hindsight driven vocals that stripe through all the songs, each one is snowflake like and emotionally so original. Take a hint of techno, a little folk guitar and a dash of dark rock and you’ve got yourself Valve. You may also have a really good band to watch for in the current music mania.
