Absolute Punk succinctly put what we all know about Motion City Soundtrack. “From the raw earnest of ‘I Am The Movie’ to the brilliance of ‘Commit This To Memory’ to the experimentalism of ‘Even If It Kills Me’ to the pop-punk clinic of ‘My Dinosaur Life’, Motion City Soundtrack has grown as musicians while never penning a disappointing album”
The journey continues with Motion City Soundtrack as they are in the midst of a career renaissance with their latest release Go, the most mature and developed album of their fourteen-year career. Go is a triumph in every way imaginable, from its tight thematic coherence and smart exploration of an emotionally complex topic, to its whip-smart arrangements and hook-filled song writing.
Six years have passed since New Jersey’sThe Early November released what, at the time, appeared to be their final album. Sprawling across three discs, The Mother, The Mechanic & The Path was a conceptual, grandiose and challenging record.
In March of 2007 The Early November called an ‘indefinite hiatus’ much to the dismay of fans across the globe. Everyone felt like the band had so much more to give… so much more life.
In 2011 fans were rewarded with their patience as the band not only reformed for shows but also with plans for a new album. In Currents is a record that could have only been made by this band, at this specific point in time.
Deaf Havana seems to be an unstoppable force heading into 2012 and they now have Australia in their sights! Their new album Fools And Worthless Liars is brutally, beautifully honest.
Joining the already huge number of acts who will be performing Sidewaves in 2013, this is a show not to be missed.
