HANDGUN BRAVADO: These Days Move Fast: CD

Feb 21, 2008

I popped this in the player while driving through the high desert between LA and Vegas. In my opinion it’s one of the best places to listen to music. Everything is so vast that you kind of have to focus on something, music usually being my choice. Handgun Bravado have something interesting going on here. On most of the tracks the guitar seems to be rhythm guitar, but with nothing taking up the lead. It doesn’t feel like there’s anything missing, and the tracks that have a lead guitar just feel a bit fuller, not better. Vocals reminiscent of Danny Elfman’s days with Oingo Boingo, and the music has a Bad Religion feel to it. Interesting approach and not a bad listen at all.
