GRABASS CHARLESTONS: Dale & The Careeners: CD

Jan 11, 2013

Being the first full length in seven years, Dale is a game changer. Here, Will Thomas trades in his sticks for a stab at the guitar. Markedly different from what you associate Grabass with: pop punk persuasion with a Southern slant, Dale takes a turn onto straight up rock. The Charlestons have opted for coasting instead of barreling down the highway at full throttle, as evidenced right out the gate with “Stormy Weather.” A few tracks like “If Dale Were You” and “Apocalypse Whenever” harkens back to their previous work, but after a few play throughs, this grows on ya like a fungus. While this may throw off fans of their older sound, this could also snag the band some new ones. Recommended.
