Review: “Wild EP” by The Analog Affair

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.

“Violent Young” – The Analog Affair

One of my favorite undiscovered bands has recently released a new single and you should all really check it out. They definitely draw on some electronic influences on this one and it’s sweet!

Good Vibes EP by The Analog Affair (8.5/10): This project based out of Washington D.C. is an absurdly underrated indie collaboration between two men, Evan (who I interviewed for his solo project) and Cody. Listening to their songs, you can tell these guys have a deep passion for music.

The whole album just gives off the air of excitement that I am sure was around when they were recording. My favorite song on the album is Riverside. This song has all the makings of a hit folk song, but none of the views. It’s a shame that the band has not gained any recognition, but I feel that if they make a few more songs like this one, they won’t be undiscovered for long. The rest of the album is also great, but (other than Waves) it doesn’t have quite the spark that Riverside has. That being said, it is totally worth a listen and a download
