The Stammer - Face In Peril
Face In Peril races through the excellent first four tracks while the band sinks a big hook in the listener's brain, and then takes a breath for the affecting midtempo ballad "Eleven". The uptempo rock parade relaunches with the jangle pop "Run Across The Bridge" and continues through the country-rock shaded "What Else Did You Come Around Here For?" and the Reed-meets-Springsteen musical celebration that is "Young Hearts". The epic, slow burning title track bridges to "Slender", the jangling bittersweet closer. This album is a terrific musical statement from a band that deserves a much higher profile. Check it out below and at the Bandcamp link.
The Stammer are Brian Brotman (vocals/guitar/songwriting), Gavin Landesberg (bass), Zachary Zimmerman (drums), and Ted Quann (guitar/backing vocals). Face In Peril is out today.
