8/10 Li'l Biz 28 March 2012

The American Dollar are a duo consisting of long-time collaborators and friends John Emanuele and Rich Cupolo. This duo have been an item since 2005, constructing a luxurious cross-strand of post-rock most suited to television programming and advertising...which is primarily where you're likely to hear these lads as they've had a number of tracks featured on CSI: Miami among other programs. 'Awake In The City' is a flamboyantly grand post-rock gesture similar to the latter day Mogwai stuff cross-bred with the usual Godspeed and Sigur Ros signature moves. Examples being - rousing single note solos, crushed (overly compressed) drums, the tickle of light electronics and a chuff-load of piano and strings.. For the most part it reminds me of Leeds behemoths Vessels with it's ebow abuse and subtle dynamic rhythms. Rousing and thoughtful whilst somehow devoid of any real character it brings to mind the promise of an Easter egg. They look awesome from a distance all wrapped up in the Easter basket but why are they always hollow inside?
