All Eyes West
"All Eyes West featured the "man of a thousand bands" Jeff Dean on guitar. They had a 90's post-hardcore sound that would fit in well on the Dischord label with really catchy yet loud guitars that drove the songs and some great bass lines. Their singer has this really great voice that was raspy yet melodic in the way that Jawbreaker was in the 1990s. If you mix the loud Chicago punk guitar sound with that early 1990's DC sound you know what these guys were like. They were really, really good and should have played third. Hopefully these guys stick around and play more often as they are one of the best bands around the city today and a breath of fresh, yet familiar air compared to what's popular these days." - Michael Vinikour, examiner.com
Easy Creatures is a new melodic post-hardcore band from Philly made up of some of Delaware’s most notorious transplants to the big city. The group includes members of Walleye, Blackthroat, Railhed and The Bad Luck 13 Riot Extravaganza.
After years of fronting more aggressive acts singer Shane Evans has returned to his roots, eschewing mayhem for melody. His clean, emotive vocals – a cross between Shawn Brown and Greg Dulli -- drive an angular and tight band of veterans who still have the zeal of kids making their first album.
With an approach reminiscent of Samiam and early Jawbox, Easy Creatures have a consummate Delaware “run-off” sound – an amalgamation of the music from surrounding cities like D.C., Philly, New York and Baltimore – topped off with the angst that comes from living nowhere and everywhere all at once.
Four dudes from Phila stuck in the time machine from 1996. We're not trying to bring anything back, we never left. For fans of Jawbreaker, Lifetime and The Bouncing Souls
