Seismic-Sound Album Reviews: Elliot Brood,Brokaw, and Lost Lander.

January 30, 2012

 Elliot Brood- Days Into Years
Release Date- Out now
 
“Death country”? Yes please.
 This Toronto band is laying down some stomp down alt country, calling up gospel truth that made bands like The Jayhawks so great.
For a band mostly known for blowing the doors off, EB is letting the hushed moments and Mark Sasso’s raspy howl speak for them. From the radio-ready love letter ‘Lindsay’ to the haunting preciousness of ‘West End Sky’, Days Into Years will draw you in.
@ The Crocodile- Feb 28th

 Brokaw- Interiors (Good To Die Records)
Release Date- Out Now

Good To Die Records has birthed another beast with Brokaw’s debut, Interiors.
Made up of Seattle music vets, Brokaw breakneck through 27minutes of rock of the ballsiest order, a concoction of noise and groove with a faint aroma of metal.
Blood, sweat and buds aside, Interiors somehow falls short, relying a bit to much on the crushing wall of sound while letting the vocals hang on the roadside. Head up, eyes out, Brokaw kills live.
@ The Sunset- Feb 3rd
 6.8

 Lost Lander- DRRT
Release Date-Out Now

These PDX natives create a grand piece of work that expands, morphing upon every listen.
On the debut DRRT, Matt Sheehy vocals are confident and otherwordly, complemented by Ex-Menomena Bert Knopf production. Textures and sounds (beats, harmonies, handclaps, strings, is that a ukelele?) are layered effortlessly, creating an all encompassing sound that pays tribute while holding court all it’s own, stepping out of the PNW folk box.

    Gonna have to give Brokaw’s “Interiors” more than a once over to get the full effect. It’s a grower, and from my experience those are the records that stick.

    It’s genuinely very difficult in this busy life to listen news on
    Television, so I simply use web for that purpose, and take the most up-to-date information.
