It takes two minutes of pulsating notes to mesmerize the listener on this new Novella tune before anything grand happens. For me, that’s a promising sign, as it builds the anticipation, then finally unleashingquiet notes and soft vocals to the delight of your ears. Such an approach is only used carefully, and few have mastered it with the quality and grace this foursome has, thus counting me as one of their many supporters. Change of State, their new album, will be released by Sinderlyn next Friday, February 17th, just in time to wrap yourself in the warm musical blanket the band is bringing forth…unless of course you’re with us in Austin…then it’ll be about 95 degrees.

Earlier in the week I tossed up one new tune from Art Is Hard Records, but I also neglected to give you the proper warning about White Sands. The group is made up of 1 parts Mazes, 1 parts Male Bonding and 1 parts Novella, so surely someone out there is going to be getting amped for this release. Initially, I was grabbed by the distorted guitars, but then I went back and found myself hooked on the interplay between male and female vocal parts. It’s going to be a special release too, as the label’s doing it on a flexi-disc 7″ with a 20 page magazine and 3 song digi-pack; you don’t get these sort of releases everyday. Pretty sure you’re going to have to order this today; it’s a limited release!
