As you may know, I recently attended a local concert for my friend’s band Between Broken Ends. As I was leaving, some weird kids came up to me and gave me and my friend Joe free stuff. I got a boxing-glove keychain, for one, but also a sampler for a band called The Working Title.
The three-song EP was handed out “Compliments OF Rock-A-Billy’s,” a local record store. I didn’t really expect much from this sampler, but once I copied it to my computer and started listening, I realized that they have a pretty decent sound. I can’t quite put my finger on what it reminds me of (no sarcasm intended), I guess you’ll just have to have a listen for yourself.
There’s a lot of reverb on the electric guitars and a fairly interesting bass beat. The vocals will be nothing new for alternative/emo fans, but they’re definitely good.
The band’s 2006 debut album About Face is available now from Universal/Cause For Alarm, but is also part of iTunes’ “Great Albums, Great Prices” sale. See it here
I highly recommend checking the album out (I know I will be), or at least the songs on the sampler:
- The Mary Getaway (I Lost Everything)
- Nothing Less Radiant
- The Crash
Also, thanks to all you loyal Markfive readers who made today, August 30, 2006, the day of our new record for page views in 24 hours: 77! Keep up the good work!
