La Dispute
La Dispute
La Dispute is five close friends from the Upper Midwest with a firm passion for the concept of music and art as a medium for making new friends. As a result, La Dispute makes (or strives to make) music that is both artistically, technically, and emotionally engaging in hopes of establishing legitimate connections with any and all interested people, while encouraging dialogue between those people and themselves about things in life that truly matter and that truly last. La Dispute also carries a firm passion for the relevance of a live show, both for the bands involved and for the people in attendance, and will go to the grave believing that the environment created when strangers come together despite their differences to celebrate one important thing is invaluable and should not under any circumstances be taken for granted.
Pianos Become The Teeth
Pianos Become The Teeth
Pianos Become The Teeth has a melodic yet uncompromising sound that brings to mind such diverse and influential bands as Thursday, Envy and City of Caterpillar. Brimming with sincerity and brandishing an experimental ambiance, the band is pushing beyond the boundaries of a stale genre. Mixing elements of screamo, hardcore as well as post rock, Old Pride breathes new life into a once decaying scene.
Mansions
Mansions
Christopher Browder knows he isn't perfect. He knows he has flaws, similar to those most adolescents secretly carry in their pocket, and the way he reviews his bottled emotions is what drives the American songwriter's second album. He isn't the type to croon or break out into a guitar solo that etches out his blues with every pick. He's a lyricist, one that uses the frailty in his voice to connect with a listener's youthful character. On a level or two, Dig Up The Dead is a reflection of Brand New's The Devil And God Are Raging Inside Me and Taking Back Sunday's Tell All Your Friends, where well-crafted rants have you relating every line to your own life story before cascading into an assault of bold alternative riffs ("Blackest Sky", "Dig Up The Dead").

What differentiates Browder from the grandiose is his taste. Whereas Dig Up The Dead has a seamless flow and pushes to be empowering, it strips down to reveal a mix of dark, broody fuzz rock jams."Close That Door" is cathartic with it's honesty, while "Seven Years" is a raw piece of work displaying the creative backbone that binds the record. "If I find that wormhole then I'll take it back," Browder laments at the halfway point, before a build-up channels inner angst and the worst kind of heartbreak that's hard to unshake after a few listens.
