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.

Divided By Friday

Artist: Divided By Friday
Album: Divided By Friday
Release Date: 5/18/10
Label: Independent

A disappointing fact in the music industry is that many of the best independent talent goes undiscovered due to lack of marketing and whatnot. Of course, their are many great artists out there that deserve the right attention to be successful. Divided By Friday are one of those bands. Filled with plenty of pop punk melodies, DBF have crafted four nicely done songs with their new self-titled EP.

The high energy "Disappoint: Surprise" starts off the short EP with somewhat typical pop punk styling, but later into the song has some of the best hooks heard from them. Lead vocalist Jose Villanueva's vocals sound a bit weak at points throughout the opener, but progressively grow stronger to the point of the highlight, which comes with "Nothing Like Today." Easily the strongest track, the catchy instrumentation mixes perfectly with the vocals, at times even a bit reminiscent of Relient K. The closer "Hello, Again" starts off piano driven but by the end is more of a pop rock song, that captures my attention as very well produced. An interesting way to end the EP I'd say.

Rating: 7/10 The newest EP from the pop punk band Divided By Friday shows a lot of potential for them. Not everything on it is perfect, but still very polished. With the right attention, these guys could easily grow bigger in no time, which I'm sure is bound to happen.
