Algernon Cadwallader - Some Kind of Cadwallader

Reviewed by: Scott Irvine (05/22/08)
Algernon Cadwallader - Some Kind of Cadwallader
Release Date: 2008
Record Label: Self-Released


Who?

If your radar is tuned to what is beginning to burgeon up north in the "post-polothology" scene, then Algernon Cadwallader is more than a household name by now. Tearing basements and shit up alongside the equally spunky Street Smart Cyclist, there has never been a better time to jump on the bandwagon then by using Some Kind of Cadwallader as some kind of starting point.

How Is It?

Brimming with wonderful shouty, Kinsella-ish vocals (some of you may not like it), bubbly angular instrumentation, and all the energy you could ask for - this is a gem that seemingly captivates anyone who lends it an ear. There's really not much more to say as Cadwallader will lead you by hand from the get-go and persist in pampering you with a contemporary Cap'n Jazz wet dream. This is youth in all its splendor and otherwise translated to music. Que suerte!

Recommended If You Like:Cap'n Jazz, mid-90's midwestmo, Braid, Bells on Trike, etc.

Songs to Look Out For:Motivational Song, Katie's Conscious, Serial Killer Status

Algernon Cadwallader is one of the best band going right now, they are insane live and there aren't too many bands doing the whole American Football/Cap'n Jazz thing right now.

One of my most anticipated records for this year and it ended up being as awesome as I hoped.

Will be road tripping and going to wherever they play in Louisville July 5th.
