Blank Range – In Unison (album review)

There are certain bands I’ll listen to that get under my skin in a good way. The music agitates me; it’s loud and abrasive and that’s just what I’m looking for. Some music is mellow and calming; helping me wind down. Blank Range falls somewhere in the middle, like an old warm blanket. Blending Americana and power pop, the combo of their excellent song-writing (shared through the band) and the top notch playing makes each listen better than one before.

In Unison opens with Career, another track about the music. Unlike Opening Band from Marooned With Treasure, Career takes a look at how the lives they’ve chosen affect their loved ones and friends. The harmonies are inch perfect on this track. On Infinity By Name, Brent Gustafson sings of a spiritual connection we share with each other that sometimes makes us feel lost. Change Your Look is a power pop gem that feels like it could be lifted off of #1 Record.

I really dig these guys. Their sounds just keeps better with each effort; pushing themselves while staying connected to what drew the fans in. And they are not to be missed live.
