Manchester Orchestra

Manchester Orchestra

Though Manchester Orchestra has only been a proper band for a year and a half, this young quartet (with an average age of 19) has crafted an album that sounds more aware and traveled than many of its more aged peers. Led by singer / songwriter / guitarist Andy Hull, Manchester Orchestras debut LP, Im Like A Virgin Losing A Child, is a statement cinematic in scope a series of emotional vignettes that delicately unravel over the course of an elegantly conceived musical arc that recalls both murky southern mysticism and the id borne bombast of the Pacific Northwest. Driven by lyrics that are insightful, spiritual and impressionistic, Im Like A Virgin Losing A Child is a litany of intimate details presented in widescreen.

The Front Bottoms

THE FRONT BOTTOMS

Brian Sella – vocals, guitars

Mathew Uychich – drums, bullhorn

What can we say about The Front Bottoms? We know we love them: a punk band that uses acoustic guitar, indie-rock dance grooves, Springsteen-y keyboard lines (this they might deny). It's hook-filled… it's anthemic… it's confessional. Maybe Joni Mitchell by way of Green Day? They must have heard some Replacements along the way, and it seems like what Jonathan Richman and the Modern Lovers did for the Boston suburbs these guys are doing for Bergen County, NJ. But they still leave us scratching our heads. Just what the hell have the Front Bottoms alchemized?
