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.

Armored Heart

Artist: Runaway City
Album: Armored Heart
Release Date: 6/22/10
Label: Vertusent Music Group

There comes a time when things may begin to sound a bit too typical and cookie cutter to me. Maybe it's because I listen to such a wide variety of music or that the sound is overall dull. Armored Heart is the debut album from rock band Runaway City. Although being marketed as a rock album, Armored Heart takes on more of a contemporary alternative/pop rock album, being fronted by an acoustic guitar in a few songs.

A few songs do catch my attention, such as the band's newest single "Fade" and the ballad "Longing," but aside from that, not as many stand out in particular. Now I'm not saying the album is terrible, because in fact, it isn't. All that needs to be said is that Runaway City certainly have time to improve.

Rating: 5/10 Runaway City open up their career with their debut album, titled Armored Heart. It shows that the band does have talent, but have plenty of time to truly develop it, leaving plenty of time for improvement.
