Amusement Parks on Fire – All the New Ends

0 comments

Before I listened “All the New Ends”, I took another audial gander at Amusement Parks on Fire’s back catalog.

Their sound, as previously described in other reviews,  is “otherworldly.” This ominous presence of the unknown in APF’s […]

It is amazing to hear a band evolve right before your ears. I had to take a listen at Candace’s previous releases to get a real feel of what they may have hoped their new album “New Ruins” to sound like. It sounds like what a time-lapse video of a dahlia bud flowering looks like. […]

I am going to start with saying that this has been my favorite new album of the year, thus far. The variety of sounds that dance throughout the tracks begin with an acoustic guitar lead on the first track, and follow with densely reverberated electric guitars, a dismal piano chord progression, synthesizers–and I am pretty […]
