HISTORY: Ghosts in the City: CD

May 26, 2008

A heavy mid/late-’80s Dischord influence is all over this, so the emo tinges are in abundance. Lord knows it ain’t my cup o’ poison, but their reliance on a direct tapping of the emo source rather than more contemporary stuff makes for a much edgier sound, a performance that exudes more conviction, and a bit more creativity in how the songs are structured. They’ve also got some good hooks, which never hurts.
