Record Review: Dryvel’s “He Walks Alone”
He_Walks_Alone_Album_Art

He Walks Alone was produced in 2009 and finished in 2010. It marks the band’s second full length release — the first in eight years, and their first one since high school, more notably. It is a concept album to boot. The concept is the story of a young guitarist who is trying to find his way in life and faces a lot of struggles in his quest for identity.

It falls roughly into the punk/alternative genre. The closest example I can come up with for a similar artist is Rise Against. Like that band, they feature fast-yet-catchy guitar riffs, emotional lyrics, and chorus-style vocals.

DC Album of the Year: Brand New – Daisy
brand-new-daisy-artwork

To date, in my opinion, Brand New has not put out a single bad record. However, when I heard that Daisy, their fourth full-length release, had landed, I was a bit reticent to listen at first. You see, ever since their sophomore release, Deja Entendu, Brand New has become increasingly complex, and that complexity requires you to approach their records like you were reading A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens.
