P.S. As you may have noticed, I’ve been absent for quite a while. I have been incredibly busy this emester and I have finally found a way to manage my schedule so that I can devote some time to this blog. I plan to update it a few times weekly for the foreseeable future. Thanks for sticking with me through this.
I know Sail has been covered to death, but this one is too good not to share.
Wild EP by The Analog Affair (9/10): I first became exposed to The Analog Affair when band member Evan contacted me about doing an interview with him for his side project Light the Air (the interview can be found here: https://musicalmagnificence.wordpress.com/2012/11/02/light-the-air-interview/). After exposing myself to Evan’s style, he suggested that I check out his band called The Analog Affair. The Analog Affair is a combined effort of Evan and Cody (I also did a review of their previous album here: https://musicalmagnificence.wordpress.com/2012/12/26/review-good-vibes-ep-by-the-analog-affair/). The last album, Good Vibes EP, of theirs that I reviewed was a folksy one. Listening to Wild EP is like listening to an entirely new band; Wild EP is infused with electropop, indie pop, and indietronica mostly.
Now I typically cringe when a band tries to exit its genre because often it becomes apparent that the band is a one trick pony. The Analog Affair, however, pulls off the genre switch with ease. Every track on the album makes you want to move; be it dancing, working out, or even just writing an album review. So check it out, Evan and Cody have major talent that will assure they make it far in the business.
