SILENT KIDS: Dinosaurs Turn into Birds: CD

Breathy, slow indie rock that evokes long-time champions like Built To Spill at one moment and then modern rock radio favorites Death Cab For Cutie the next. I can’t really tell if the changing comparisons makes for a good thing or not, but I do know that the disc gets better as it goes on. What would help this band out would be some louder singing, more interesting song arrangements, and some kind of fresh, personalized touch to separate it from the pack. Get all of those issues in order and this may be a future Saddle Creek signing.
