Seasons by Citycop (2011)

Kind of Like: La Dispute, 1994!, Caravels
Genres: Screamo, Post-hardcore
Preview: Bandcamp

This band probably pulls off the "acoustic screamo" thing as best as you can.  The rendition of Bukowski's "Bluebeard" poem is very La Dispute-esque.  After that, it has some stunning guitar work with hoarse impassionate screams over it.  It is an odd fit for me, but I could see a lot of people digging it immediately, but I think it will take more time for me to really appreciate it.  I think certain heavier parts would be translated better using heavier electric guitar tones.  However, the acoustic guitar works perfectly at times.

On a side note, I passed out a bunch of flyers with promo codes on them for a dollar off any SIGD records orders at the Fireworkds/CSTVT/Tigers Jaw/Captain We're Sinking/Louder than Bombs show.  Still have a little bit of the codes left for use, so if you are still on the fence about the preoders just type in the promo code: FIREWORKS to take get a discount off your order.
