Hey it's all getting a little gloomy round here. I have a CD by For Against (Shade Side, Sunny Side) which is once again an American band who used to sound like an overcoat rock band from 1981, really creepy guitars that got all cathedrally on yr ass and now years & years later they're still going strong, a little more serene and quite mature & considered. They've matured like the New Zealand bands such as The Clean & The Chills did. The atmospherics are dense & fresh and the songwriting is at once engaging & hopeful. They'd probably appeal to followers of later Cure & Wedding Present gear & generally introspective well produced rock. Remember bands like Dark Star & Levitation? There's little bits of that on here mangling with more commercial numbers but it's all pretty good. On Words on Music, CD only.
