TOO MANY VOICES: Catch Me If You Can: CDEP

Following up the excellent South of Sunrise, this N.Y. band is back with an equally thrilling record. The hardcore sound is strong here but they provide enough twists and turns to make the listener sit up and take notice. The one-two punch of “Life on a Sandbar” and “Solitary Man” should be all you need to hear to get hooked. There is also a cover that when I heard it live, it almost made me spill my beer—yes it is that good! The band has now expanded to include a lead vocalist, but for now revel in the sonic goodness nestled inside. –Sean Koepenick (Self-released, toomanyvoices.bandcamp.com)
