Review Vault – Trunks, Art Decade, The Murder

Trunks – Kniee  / Journey To End Of The Line EP

2-track EP from this French collective that contains one track with female vocals and one instrumental track. First one sounds a lot like what post-rock bands are doing until the female vocals kick in, while the second one is a bit more of a twisted electronic journey with wordless vocals. This EP is a great showcase of the band’s capabilities. Well done.

Art Decade – Royalty EP

If memory serves me right, there was an industrial/electronic band by the name of Art Decade, but this AD is a relatively new band and there’s no relation between the two whatsoever. This AD are playing a fairly intricate form of indie rock – as title suggests, this EP is built around the theme of royalty.

The only weak link in here, in my opinion, is vocals. They’re standard – not terrible, by any means, but nothing special either. Otherwise, its an interesting EP, if not something that I listen  to very often.

The Murder – ‘Til Death

Maybe I’m just missing the point, but I don’t see anything special about this album.

This is punk-by-numbers (with the exception of reggae-influenced “Soundclash”), which sounds a lot like a simplistic version of Dropkick Murphys (complete with songs about Boston streets etc). Since we already have one band of Murphys, is there a real need for another one?

One thought on “Review Vault – Trunks, Art Decade, The Murder

  • A simplistic version of the Dropkick Murphys? What, do they play one chord in 4/4 time with one two-beat long note per bar?

    So many bands now days. So many wanna make it, so few just wanna rock… hmmm, there's a song in there somewhere.
