Chicago pop-rockers, Treaty of Paris have a brand new website. Also be sure to check out their latest album, Sweet Dreams, Sucker.
The High Court truly delivers their own brand of crunchy, risquÃƒ© rock Ã¢â‚¬Ëœn’ roll. On this their debut effort is nothing short of a roller-coaster ride, filled with torrid tales, spine tingling melodies, and plenty of shredding guitars. From the self-titled opener to “Down in Flames” its heavy finally, this record doesn’t quit. “2 Much Love for 1 Woman” is as catchy as it is topically edgy. Where “In Bambi’s Eyes” could make any old school Fall Out Boy fan begin to swoon. Puppet Strings is definitely a unique album, genre-jumping from hard to classic rock fused with pop punk overtones. Plain and simple this is a pure “rock out” record, one that I highly recommend!

Upon first hearing Ralston’s debut entitled, Needle Bed, I found the record to be impactuful yet rather sparse and almost hollow at times. His follow up, Sorry Vampire sits on the complete opposite end of the spectrum. This intensely layered and meticulously crafted record is truly something to behold. The somber, swaying, gloomy melodies lend the perfect audio-backdrop for the commonly gray fall weather. Each track is its own intricate and developed work of art. I find it hard to imagine how Ralston will follow this up or how these songs will be preformed live. I look forward to finding out those answers in the not too distant future. This is truly a record that requires a good pair of headphones and an open mind.
