Now It's Overhead - Dark Light Daybreak
When I think Saddle Creek Records, I think Cursive and, in all honesty, I can say, I never gave Now It's Overhead the benefit of the doubt.
Nonetheless, I delved into their latest album, Dark Light Daybreak, sitting down and just letting the album melt into my ears. I was amazed. Andy LeMaster's programming flow like maple syrup down a delicious stack of pancakes, which in this metaphor, represent driven, yet riverlike guitar and simple yet, complicated drums.
Such sweet musical collaboration coupled with LeMaster's spectacular vocals, you'll find yourself unconciously placing the album in your stereo, laying back on your pillow, and somehow you'll still manage to tap your toes to songs like "Type A," a fast-paced that really shows you LeMaster's potential or the title track, "Dark Light Daybreak," where you feast on an acoustic and synth intro.
There isn't a weak song on this album and it's too good to pass up, like I mistakenly did. You must introduce yourself to LeMaster's vocals.
