Catastrophe Keeps Us Together



First of all, sorry for the lack of posting this weekend, I was out pretty much all day every day, anyways, here's something lovely for your Sunday night. As I've already mentioned before, April 4th will see the release of Rainer Maria first proper album in three years. The album, which will be titled Catastrophe Keeps Us Together will be the debut release for newly created label, Grunion Records.

For the first time in many years, the band was able to write and record without any pressure being put on them by outside sources such as a record label. Drummer William Kuehn says, "we reached and challenged ourselves and wrote the best songs we could for no one but ourselves." The new album shows a more matured band experimenting more with there songwriting than ever before. Aiming this time around for a larger batch of slower paced songs than their normal fare and even trying their hand at a cover of Bob Dylan's "I'll Keep It With Mine." However, my favorite song so far and my bet for first single is "Life Of Leisure."

[MP3]: Rainer Maria :: Life Of Leisure
As I mentioned above, Catastrophe Keeps Us Together is a bit less rocking than their previous album. There are however, exceptions to that, one being this song. As soon as I heard the intro, I thought of "Ears Ring" which happens to be my favorite RM track of all time, even though it spread like a virus to every teen girl with cd player. Nonetheless, you can see a definate improvement in guitarist Kyle Fischer's playing and Caithlin's vocals are still some of the best in indie rock. What do you guy's think?


Matt's got a brand new Bishop Allen track!
StumbleUpon Toolbar Stumble It!

I knew someone who had it a year and a half before it came out. It leaked but thats because he knew someone really close to someone in the band
