Random Record Review – Everyone Everywhere, “S/T”

Everyone Everywhere

S/T

Tiny Engines (2010)

Everyone Everywhere‘s coming a little bit out from under the umbrella of “sounding a lot like early The Promise Ring”, something that, while not a bad thing, definitely hung over them when they first started garnering attention.  On this self-titled full-length though, they’re coming into their own sound-wise.

The only problem really here, is that the sound’s lost some of the upbeatness and energy that I loved on A Lot Of Weird People… .  I totally understand not wanting to get stuck into the rut of every record sounding the same, but this new album’s comparatively slow and almost sluggish start with the first song sets a bit of a downer for the overall tone.  Maybe it’s just me, I don’t know.  It’s not bad at all, an awesome entry to the newer wave of pop and indie-influenced emo bands that are coming out these days. I just don’t know if I like it as much as their earlier work right now.  We’ll see.

You should still pick this up though, regardless.  After all, I’m just a weirdo on the Internet, and this band’s pretty cool overall.
