Album Review: Antarctigo Vespucci – “Leavin’ La Vida Loca”

Is there anything better when two best friends make music together? It’s hard to argue against that in the case of Jeff Rosenstock and Chris Farren and their musical ode to their friendship, Antarctigo Vespucci. The duo dropped a pair of EPs in 2014 that complimented each other well, showcasing some seriously infectious power pop. Now the two have released their debut album, Leavin’ La Vida Loca, a less explosive venture, and one that explores the other side of the coin that is Antarctigo Vespucci.

The title and artwork spell out everything you need to know: Leavin’ La Vida Loca isn’t an action-packed popcorn blockbuster. This is a lazy, chill summertime album, finding the joys in taking it easy. It’s probably best enjoyed while in the comfort of an air conditioned apartment, though in a pinch having open windows with a breeze is an acceptable substitution. The guys are still interested in writing powerful pop jams however Leavin’ La Vida Loca is more interested in dreamy guitars; The energy and hooks are in place, for sure, but they’re subdued in comparison to what came before.

At only 25 minutes, Leavin’ La Vida Loca is still a rush, even with its beach-ier (is that a real way to describe music now?) vibes. Farren and Rosenstock could have easily churned out 10 variations of “I’m Giving Up on U2” or “I Drew You Once in Art Class” and called it a day, but instead they took it one step further. These two are masters at melding highly catching songs with a laid-back attitude, and Antarctigo Vespucci is a testament to that. We should consider ourselves lucky that they met each other.

Album Review: Shinobu – “10 Thermidor”

On Friday, January 2, not even a full 48 hours into 2015, Shinobu took the metaphorical bar that we all use to measure how great or terrible things can be, and launched it into the atmosphere by releasing their brand new album 10 Thermidor. It’s always kind of unfair when a band sets the bar high so early into a new year, but at the same time, who really cares when the music is this good?

For an album with two songs that surpass the six minute mark, 10 Thermidor is a surprisingly quick listen and it’s over much too soon. It’s easy to get lost in the melodies of each and every song. From the opening progressions of “Untitled Michael Haneke Project”, 10 Thermidor casts its hook and reels listeners in with things like the repeated refrain of “It’s a lie” in “Culture, Inc.”, the aggressive, in-your-face “Jokes”, and the bouncing bass and “oooos” of “9 Thermidor”. By the time you reach the title track, it’s hard to believe that it’s already over.

Whether it’s Jeff Rosenstock’s production [Editor’s note: I’ve been informed that Rosenstock did not produce this album, his involvement was merely as the “hot-shot record mogul”] or due to guitarist/vocalist Mike Huguenor’s time spent with the likes of Hard Girls, Classics of Love, and The Bruce Lee Band, or simply because it’s just the natural progression of musical evolution between friends, 10 Thermidor is Shinobu’s most accessible album to date. Gone are the short interludes and filler tracks, resulting in a much more consistent listen. That said, the album still has plenty of quirks to keep it grounded in Shinobu’s indie rock background, including quietly layered keyboards to oddball guitar riffs, and a two minute emptiness in “The Void” (pretty clever, you guys).

Being the first record to be released in 2015 (well… probably the first), can be a lot of pressure, but 10 Thermidor handles that pressure with ease. It’s a fun, catchy, strong album and a promising start to a new musical year. Don’t sleep on it because of its early January release.

4 / 5 – Don’t let this one slip into the void, stream it below!
