New Year, new music, and Language Room is there for you.
That's them. All these guys can sing, but (left-to-right) Scott Graham does guitar + keys, Todd Sapio does guitar, Sean Hill pounds on the drums, and Matt Graham handles the bass + keys.
Graham and Sapio moved here from LA back in '07, and have since shifted some personnel, released a CD ("Language Room" available on iTunes and Amazon), and have melted some faces in our finer venues. In a nutshell - These guys have been there, done that, and know how to produce the Good Stuff.
Which is what the just-popped-out "Skin & Heart & Lungs" is, the Good Stuff:
iTunes or Amazon). So go ahead and pick it up - It's a smart, hook-filled rock-pop collection, bulging with passion and gleaming with top-shelf production values.
"Open Air" is the opener, an anthem-istic pop number that fluctuates from tinny glockenspiel to thumping bass and sharp guitar lines. "Kerosene" follows, a quietly-started/loudly-ended rock-powered pop number that's more rock than pop. The title song is #3 in this collection, a hauntingly brilliant number that you will be tempted to bring to your next karaoke party. "Breachers" ends the set with excellence; a spooky, bass-lead progression, punctured with sinister-stabbing guitars and overlaid with excellent vox.
Here, give "Skin & Heart & Lungs" a hear (or three) before heading out to Amazon for your own copy:
