Artist Of The Week - Anchor & Braille

It's been about three years since we've gotten an album from Anchor & Braille, the indie side project of Anberlin's Stephen Christian, but this week, on July 31st, the band's sophomore album will be released. The Quiet Life is a collection of haunting melodies and catchy percussion, certainly a maturation of sound since 2009's Felt. The Quiet Life is available now in stores and online through Tooth & Nail Records.

1. Ambulance (Un-mixed, will be on upcoming album)
2. The Valley (Un-mixed, will be on upcoming album)
3. Away We Go (Garage Band Demo)
4. 192 Days (Garage Band Demo)

The album is made up of alternative rock and more classic-sounding acoustic pop. "Ambulance" is a great alternative rock track that starts off slow but breaks into the alternative rock. "The Valley" almost sounds like it could be the album's title track and is very catchy. It mentions "fire kites drifting through the sky". It is another alternative rock song and sounds great. The "Away We Go" and "192 Days" Garage Band Demos are both really just tracks they did for fun and have a more classical acoustic pop sound to them, they are fresh sounding. "Away We Go" is only available on the digital and was thrown on last minute. The physical copy includes a cover of their song "Telescope Eyes" by Max Bemis of Say Anything, also the husband of Sherri DuPree. It sounds great and is one of my favorites on the EP. It's too bad that it's not on the version everyone can get.
Album Highlights: Ambulance, The Valley, Telescope Eyes (Covered by Max Bemis)
Rating: 7/10 For those who have been awaiting new material from Eisley, the time has finally come!
