Medications – Your favorite people all in one place

One ofrepparttar most intriguing aspects of music is how easily it can transform one’s mood. The right notes, atrepparttar 139750 right tempo, and all of a sudden, BAM! You’re in a good mood. This 3 piece from Washington, DC knows exactly how to pull this off. Consisting of members of Chris Elkjar isrepparttar 139751 founder of '' an online music magazine. He spends all of his spare time immersed in music, be it writing reviews, interviews with leading bands or writing his own music.

For more of his writing, check out - Music for robotsthe now defunct band “Faraquet”, Medications oddly enough, sounds a lot like Faraquet. It’s peculiar how a band consisting ofrepparttar 139752 same musicians can sound very similar. Afterrepparttar 139753 Faraquet breakup 2 ofrepparttar 139754 founding members created Medications and whilerepparttar 139755 sound is very similar,repparttar 139756 new third wheel does add some new elements intorepparttar 139757 mix. A mere 6 months sincerepparttar 139758 release of their Medications EP, they have returned with their first full length Your favorite people all in one place available now on Dischord.

Whilerepparttar 139759 music on this album does sound a lot like Faraquet andrepparttar 139760 Medications EP,repparttar 139761 quirky time signatures and awkward vocal lines are quickly becoming a thing ofrepparttar 139762 past,repparttar 139763 songwriting maintains that same dry, yet clever feel, but it seemsrepparttar 139764 band is slowly trying to forge a new identity. The album begins with Surprise! Which is arguablyrepparttar 139765 single greatest opening track of all time, starting off as every 70s rock concert ended, a solid 4/4 beat with ascending guitars and thundering drums. Any band that hasrepparttar 139766 guts to open their disc with a rock and roll finale gets extra points from me.
