ABSOLUTExclusive: Culprit
 
A few weeks ago, our unsigned spotlight shined on North Hollywood's Culprit. Today, the band is again our featured artist. Click here for a free download (File -> Save as) of their song "Strangers" off of their upcoming EP Analogue, which drops on April 20th. You can pre-order it here. If you like As Tall As Lions, The Receiving End of Sirens and the like, you might like these guys. As usual, let us know what you think in the replies.

anything in the vein of ATAL is a win in my eyes.

such a good album...i suggest everyone pick up a copy on itunes on 4/20

This song really is great. Any band that draws influence from TREOS can't be bad.

WOW...the song is amazing. Totally picking this album up!

downloaded the song, it isn't too bad but it doesnt sound like ATAL to me at all. Maybe the other songs do more?

i suppose it's more ATAL influence rather than replication...personally i think they sound more like boys night out and circa

Some of the other songs have somewhat of an ATAL vibe but as whole, it's more of a "if you like so and so, you might like Culprit" more than it is "these guys and Culprit sound alike."

Dig the new song. Can't wait to snatch up this album 4/20.

back this band hard!

Good recommendation

Bob Payne 04/18/11 08:27 PM

Disappointing. They don't sound like As Tall As Lions.

I can sense some treos in there... but... i don't really know yet. The two songs i've listened don't sound like atal at all. Guess what holds me down from this is the singing.
