MP3 REVIEW: Accents “Tall Tales” (Deep Elm)

                I don’t remember too much about Accents, just that I apparently liked their album prior to this one, so take that for what it’s worth.   Deep Elm does have their entire Bandcamp catalogue available at a Name Your Price download option though, so that’s cool because you can download these songs even as recent as this for free if you want.

                These songs have somewhat of a radio rock feel to them, in the sense that I can hear bits and pieces coming out from bands such as The Verve Pipe, Goo Goo Dolls, Barenaked Ladies, Deep Blue Something and just along those lines.  There is also an indie rock quality to it, as I definitely hear some Sherwood coming out as well.

                Though it tends to be almost on the pop side- where it would fit within the radio playlist as the aforementioned bands- the thing is that it still remains complex, layered if you will and doesn’t have that simplicity that is generally related to songs on the radio and pop on the whole.

                This is quite beautiful and moving post rock that brings out the likes of Live sometimes, but I also really just like the line “Let your darkness come to me”, and that might be the best thing about this album.
