Ida: Lover's Prayers Black Mountain: In The Future Able Baker Fox: Voices
Trying to avoid obvious comparisons like Low and The Spinanes is tough, maybe only because I love all of these bands, but
On "In the Future,"
Six years ago, Small Brown Bike and The Casket Lottery were two of the best bands in their genre, making earnest, melodic and complex post-hardcore with tons of heart. Call it emo if you have to, but none of these dudes wore eye make-up or wigs. Before both bands disbanded, they collaborated on a classic, if oft-overlooked split EP—a collaboration that sowed the seeds for Able Baker Fox. With members from each band, the familiar sounds are there, for sure, but Able Baker Fox adds some new flavors to the mix. Heavy grooves and layered, almost-stoner vocals add a fresh approach. Written with the members living in four different states and recorded over five days, Voices is a strong debut and a compelling progression for veterans of this sound. Listen to tracks on MySpace and buy it from Blue Collar Industries or iTunes.
