Review: This Bright Apocalypse

This Bright Apocalypse
“Motion and Rest”
(5040 or Fight)

More emo-prog.  This time from Wisconsin.  Seems fairly sincere, but the omnipresent and frequently out of tune vocal harmonies can be a bit grating.  The most enjoyable part of this release for me was their occasional use of less Western sounding percussion, but it’s still mostly a case of “heard it all before” and from bands who did it much better.  Still the players seem talented enough and hopefully their sophomore effort will see them taking some risks and developing their own niche.
