WINTER SOUNDS: Porcelain Empire: CD

Jul 25, 2007

By all rights, I should hate this like crazy. It’s overblown, sappy-sounding, exceedingly poppy indie rock stuff, but for some reason—maybe it’s the cold medicine I’ve been downing like kamikazes—it gels together quite nicely. In the midst of all the grandeur is some nice funnin’ with dynamics, solid vocal harmonies and some good songwriting, the result being something like a cross between the bluster of The Killers and the humility of Teenage Fanclub. Surprisingly better than I expected.
