Beati Paoli - A Sense Of Urgency
So usually bored with EMO and terrible Rap, Des Moines, IA's Beati Paoli found me tonight. After listening to independent experi-rock by simple coincendence, review after review, here I am with yet another. Very much high-tempoed and focused on a bone chillin atmospheric blend of instrumentation, vocals are a back stove item here. Vulgarity Drifting Diary is a perfect example. Discount, midgrade recording budget's, this being their first full length record since their demo in 2005, they have made a fine splash.
Look to the title track for songs that carry a traditional structure, but an I don't give a f*ck feel for any rules. Light heartedly stroked bridges amidst strong full bars, and a scratchy vocalist that somehow keeps the glue warm throughout. Go to Maggie for a more dinstinct feel on the vocals and even a bit of an acoustic dramelody.
All in all Beati Paoli brings a warmth of DIY rock that I welcome. There is no plastic casing to unwrap, they are what they are, and I'm digging their full and unpolished sound. I'm very much looking out for other releases.
