Red Eyed Legends

Wake Up, Legend

First full-length from this Chicago band fronted by Chris Thomson (ex-Circus Lupus). Dense, multi-layered rock that will require repeated listening. That’s really because it will require some thinking on the listener’s part. “Je M’Appelle Macho” is currently the song on here that’s getting repeated playbacks. Maybe since these are some of the few French words I retained from five years of French class. “Felt Like Being a Dick” also wins best song title of 2009 hands down. Tough, gut-wrenching music that will stay with you longer than that chalk outline on your driveway.

When listening to a band you’ve never heard of, it’s a lot easier to make all those “sounds like” comments. Whether that’s why I think Western Settings sounds so much ...
