These guys have been waiting patiently for me to have time to do a write up on them, After about 15 hours of sleep and nothing to do today but work at 3:00, I think I can do this now. It's time to get some stuff done.
Waypoint are from the dirty dirty, but play some clean melodic post-hardcore/indie that reminded me immediately of newer Moving Mountains and Balance and Composure. Specifically, they are from Mississippi, near Jackson. I really don't know too much about the scene down south, but I keep finding more and more bands from around there and it's been eye-opening (ear-opening?) for sure. So far I am liking "Eros" and "I Am Sun" the most.
My only concern with this album is that it might get old for people about halfway through. There are certain hooks and guitar parts that are unique, but sometimes the vocals/harmonies and choruses sound somewhat similar to the ones before it. That's why I really liked "Eros", for some reason it brought something different to the table than the other songs.
Other than that, the production is pristine, the songs are catchy and epic at times, and this is certainly a solid debut full-length.
Edit: the band asked that the mediafire link be removed and just be directed to their bandcamp. Hopefully some of you guys are down to buy this.
