The Ten 13 Concept (T13C) - The Ten 13 Concept
Released: 2006
Unsinged

Who?

T13C (or The Ten 13 Concept) is Gainesville, Florida’s sweethearts. A band that busts their asses off touring the country whenever possible, and have been following the Warped Tour all summer long to sell their cd. I know this alone doesn’t say anything about talent (but maybe their spot in the Semi Finals Of the NBC show Americas Got Talent will), but if we had a hard-working score for bands, they’d get an eleven.

How Is It?

Do you like keyboards? What about horns? There is sprinkles of both on this pop punk powerjam that is T13C’s self titled EP. Is it epic? No. Is it fun? You’re damn right it is. The only words I can think of to describe this is nerdy pop punk. After a synthesized intro, you will hear “From The Stereo”, which is charmed by vocalist Joe Loffredo’s kiddish voice. The next couple tracks, “California” and “These Cars Collide”, while not as fun as the opening track, they still have that charm of genuinity. “Engine Down” reminds me some pop punk outfits that came out of the late 90’s like Allister and Fenix TX, the production suffers from it, but you couldn’t have it any other way. It closes with the fan favorite, “The Match, The Flame, The Fire”. I believe this will be the song that the band will re-record on their next record and quite possibly get them popular with the kiddies. All in all, The Ten 13 Concept is five tracks of sheer fun.

Like i said, the cd is fun, but the production suffered and the vocals cracked. If you're into this style of music, you'll probably enjoy this.

I bought this EP from them at Warped. As said, it's a nice little fun album.

Unnecessary formating is always annoying.

i met a few of the dudes after cleveland warped tour (and ran into jon before pittsburgh warped) and pretty much bought the EP on a whim. all i can say is, this album is fun and i personally love listening to it. it also helps that the guys ARE nice and are fun to talk to. i hope to catch a live show of theirs someday.

Yeah I talked to the lead singer for 10 minutes or so after Warped and bought a copy of this. One of the songs had a really cool ska breakdown in it. I'd say it was slightly above average as a whole though.

Awesome review -- and these guys deserve it. They truly are one of the hardest working bands...they not only followed Warped tour and continue to play live shows in different cities each weekend, but do it while still holding full-time jobs. They remain grounded, devoted to their fans and their music. As fans of music we're lucky that a site like absolutepunk still recognizes hard work and good music over big-business labels and promotions.

AP and T13C -- KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!!!
