Cymbals Eat Guitars
Kevin Devine’s Devinyl Split
I don’t know what this Kevin Devine’s Devinyl Split project is all about, but it features Cymbals Eat Guitars. It also features tracks from Meredith Graves, Tigers Jaw, and Nada Surf’s Matthew Caws which were previously released this year. Devinyl Split itself will contain six-part, and Cymbals Eat Guitars is the fourth part of the project.
Produced by Jesse Lacey, the frontman of Brand New, “Aerobed” begins with acoustic guitar. “Love’s truck stop, bumfuck Georgia,” vocalist Joseph D’Agostino sings, showing his tender side of pure and raw love. It’s not like what Cymbals Eat Guitars’s songs that I used to listen where they seem more grunge-y. But, the acoustic part is a red herring. It’s like a bomb fuse, and when it all burns, it explodes. The chorus of “Aerobed” is an explosion. After the explosion, the song grows more tranquil, leaving no aftermath. D’Agostino’s skill in writing is definitely proven in this song.
Cymbals Eat Guitars has now signed to Sinderlyn, and if this is what their latest effort looks like, their record next year is something we should look forward to.
