Adventure, Stamina & Anger (7") by This Town Needs Guns (2011)
Kind of Like: Cats and Cats and Cats, Maps & Atlases, Look Mexico
Genres: Indie, Math Rock, Emo
This Town Needs Guns is a catchy ass band, if you are a fan of noodly math rock then you probably will like this. My only gripe is that it sounds like two songs that could have been on their past record, Animals. More of the same isn't necessarily bad, but it really isn't great either. Some parts of these song sound practically identical to parts of songs from Animals. Out of the two songs, "Adventures" is definitely the highlight. I do think these songs show a little more maturity in song structure; it's a bit more complex, interesting, and unpredictable then the songs on Animals. The guitar work is great, per usual. This release doesn't really say too much about what direction there next LP will head in, if anywhere. We will have to wait and see.
