A STATIC LULLABY
AND DON'T FORGET TO BREATHE
A Static Lullaby is a band that is blowing up massively, thanks to the outfit's rigorous touring schedule, besides the band's blistering screamo-emo smattering. Produced by hardcore guru Steve Evetts, the 10 tracks that comprise this California quintet's debut full length release walk the line between The Used's catchy choral cheekiness, such as the emo rollercoaster ride of "We Go to Eleven" and Glassjaw's disjointed deluges, never staking claim to either at one time, but definitely blurring the edges between the two. The real question is if this dynamic group is merely a flavor of the month or built to last? Hard to tell at this junction, but what is easy to realize is that all this is the sound that all of the kids have been singing as of late, and ASL's version, blazoned with metal overtones and soaked with blood fresh from a broken heart, seems ready to overpower the masses.
