This Changes Everything
The wonderful Kansas City-based indie label, Second Nature offers this 14-band/14-song CD, bringing together bands that cross borders and state lines while holding together a sound that screams reality and right now. From Canada to Seattle, Washington, to Washington, DC. From Montana to Kansas to Massachusetts. There’s a strong push on the post hardcore (dare I say “emocore”?) side of things, with the strongest tracks being the moving and dynamic Casket Lottery, the passionate energy of Waxwing, and the quirked out pop of Reggie and the Full Effect. So much in here, and not enough space to cover it all. Definitely worthwhile listening.
