Aficionado "Aficionado" LP
Evolving artistically and pushing the envelope of their sound, Aficionados upcoming self-titled full length is a cohesive listen from beginning to end, showing that the album format is still alive and well. With ten songs produced and recorded with AJ Mogis (Bright Eyes, M. Ward, Cursive), the songs are sharp and more compact with less of an emphasis on wowing people with over the top antics and more of a focus on the songs themselves. The lyrical basis is centered on expositions of thinking for yourself, attaining what it takes to be a charismatic person, heeding to the realities of aging, and acceptance of change.
For fans of: Cursive, The Hold Steady, At the Drive-In
