Many many moons ago, we posted about a brand new NYC band Conversion Party who caught our ear with their jagged guitars and rugged sound. Since that time, the band has changed their name and sort of reconfigured the way they are going about things. The sound isn’t too terribly different and could still be compared to a more rough neck version of Frightened Rabbit. ATH is usually about that type of sound so of course we give it the seal of approval. You can check out some other new tunes by the band over on their band camp site if you’re digging this one “On the Decline”.

So we might be a few weeks late to this, um, party, but make no mistake, we’re fully getting behind Conversion Party over here at the ATH offices. The band is putting out their Favors EP, and will have a nice little show to celebrate in New York on May 7th, but the rest of us can still enjoy the band’s tunes. This track has the feel of a Scottish act, namely that of Frightened Rabbit, but that jagged guitar that cuts through the entirety of the track gets me each time. If you look hard you can find the rest of the tracks floating about, but we suggest you go ahead and get your hands on Favors, as it’s just a stepping stone to something really exciting.
