The Orchard by Ra Ra Riot. http://rarariot.bandcamp.com/album/the-orchard 1. “The Orchard” - 0:00 2. “Boy” — 3:29 3. “Too Dramatic” — 6:40 4. “Foolish” — …
The record’s up-tempo singles rehash the band’s previous sound to slighter effect. The intentionally offbeat bass on “Boy” distracts, while “Too Dramatic” is anything but, its awkward rhymes sounding like parts of a melodic chain that’s missing a couple of links. The Orchard is best when Ra Ra Riot integrate plusher production into more natural arrangements. While the rangy, chugging motorik of “Massachusetts” and “You and I Know“‘s dusky balladry (sung by cellist Alexandra Lawn) meander, they at least try something new, hinting that The Orchard might be something of a grower. But as soon as they build momentum with The Orchard's most typically triumphant hook (“Shadowcasting”), the ironically titled “Do You Remember” kicks off a final third that fails to leave any impression.
The Earth Is Not a Cold Dead Place is the third album recorded by post-rock band Explosions in the Sky, released on November 4, 2003 on the Temporary Residen…
It’s in this gloomy context that Explosions in the Sky’s sophomore record, The Earth Is Not a Cold Dead Place, comes as quite a revelation. While the album still exhibits the ominous melodrama of Those Who Tell the Truth, The Earth is a much warmer affair. Even the title, with its emphasis on the word “not,” seems laced with an intense yearning for optimism in the face of horrific circumstance. The inside sleeve of the outstanding album art depicts a sketch of lifeless autumnal leaf wistfully tumbling in the air, only to transform into the body of a fluttering dove. In other words, this is about as close as indie rock gets to an intentionally “post-9/11” album.
