CD Review: The New Cassettes Woke Up With "Winterhead"
The new album begins with “Left/Right,” a great high-energy, modern rocker that gets carried throughout the album. This tempo continues with “Bite Your Lip” and “Little Extremes.” The New Cassettes really get their infectious popular groove going on “Silent Guns.” The band slows down the beat on the moody sounding “You Are A Slow Wave” and “Straight Lines,” before returning to their rock roots with “Ghosts.” The grunge-like guitar in “I’m Not Faithful At All” only adds that edginess that the lyrics are portraying, as the album closes with the Coldplay sound-alike, “I Awoke.”
The New Cassettes just wrapped up an appearance at this year’s SXSW Festival and are heading out on the road across the U.S. They will wrap-up their tour with a stop at The Space in Hamden, CT.
