Cold War Kids - Loyalty To Loyalty
Okay, so no surprise here. I saw CWK at Street Scene last weekend, they did a 40 min set and all but 4 songs were from the new album. It was pretty impressive to see them hold the audience with the new material. Like Robbers & Cowards, this album might take a while for most of you to really enjoy it. The same blues howl and edgy guitar is there. The music is a little more scattered then Robbers & Cowards, but then again that might only be because I need to give it a couple of more listens.
One thing I live about this album is the tempo, they seems to have slowed it down just a little bit. Besides, Something is not right with me, there are no stand out, punch you in the gut hits, but conceptually this album flows a little better then Robbers & Cowards.
If you get a chance over the next couple of months to see these guys, I recommend you do. Hopefully they will still play some smaller venues.
