END OF THE YEAR: Sincerely: CD

We all know how the phrase name bands usually go. It typically equals emo, whiney, suck band. End Of The Year is trying to disprove the theory. They take lyrical ideas from Kurt Vonnegut and Lungfish which can only be a sign of acknowledging our human failures. Musically, I hear a tinge of Dischord Records thickness and drive with two guitars dueling between noodles and drones. My main problem with EOTY is that nothing diverges much from the pattern established in the first song. This is not the best in the batch but I think this band might continue to grow and release good records in the future.
