Our Withers Unwrung

There are some albums that you can just tell everyone can like, and September Malevolence's 2011 album Our Withers Unwrung is one such an album.

Prominently, the music features an enjoyable post-rock reminiscent backing, with tons of light, melodic guitars and repetitive themes. However, the overall experience sounds closer to alternative rock; this is mostly a result of the vocals, which give structure the instrumentals into clearly defined and reigned-in versechorus song structures that anyone can recognize. Generally, it's very agreeable music.

However, the music can sometimes be a bit tiresome; it never really changes and it it's easy to get bored with the quirky indie rock sound fairly quickly. This is especially true of tracks like “King of High School”, which seem entirely frivolous. However, at forty minutes, it's still not that long of a time to listen to, and it really is a matter of personal taste on that point.

Our Withers Unwrung is a enjoyable romp through light, airy rock music, and there isn't much that you may find objectionable here. If you're looking for a nice easy listen, look no further.
