Alabama Music Box will be heralding the return of Glass War. Four years ago, this fiery duo released “Silence EP” on an unsuspecting Azalea City. This four-track EP is an explosion of local pop-punk. Throughout this album, Glass War displayed a constructive level of teamwork that resulted in a perfect balance on all levels. The opening track, “Away,” features balanced guitar and drum arrangements with alternating vocals that soar with intensity and clarity. Glass War’s sonic equilibrium can also be experienced throughout the tracks selected for this album. “Away” and “Silence” are unignorable, upbeat pop-punk anthems that are contrasted by the more lowkey tracks “Choke” and “Sometimes.”
Bankhead Boys continue to make their presence known in the Azalea City underground scene. The official website for this band features four tracks from this adrenalized twosome of Black Titan expatriates. Black Titan fans should not expect the same doom/sludge sound from Bankhead Boys. However, Bankhead Boys trip across modern psych-rock and punk with beautiful results that should be appealing to local fans of underground rock. Monstrous beats and merciless guitars usher multiple layers of vocals throughout “Things That I’ve Learned,” “Tight Rope” and “The Heat.” Then, Bankhead Boys take a turn with “Reservoir,” which is almost a ’60s pop-psych tune with a hint of classic shoegaze.
