HAUNTED HEADS: Self-titled: LP

Sep 05, 2012

Rock from Wisconsin. Rootsy vocal melodies sung in Posies-esque close harmonies. Music from the time in the mid-‘90s when mannered indie rock was mixing with post-hardcore to redefine emo. Think bands like Braid or Chamberlain, but played with an exceptional tightness. Dynamics are worked in well, strumming through vocal lines then countering them with palm-muted passages. After a song or two, I was trying to think of a tactful way to say this is a good record but not to my taste, but then I was like, “Fuck it. I like this,” and played it through twice.
