While a generally upbeat punk album is great, once in a while a more heartfelt song helps the album stay true to what makes up a big part of the punk sound, which Big Hearts - The Swellers - The Light Under Closed Doors emotions and vulnerability. While the album is composed of great tracks, adding variety into the sound of the whole album as the whole would have allowed listeners to experience a more emotional complex album.
The more upbeat songs, even with sadder lyrics, still provide easy listening material but by adding more emotional variety, The Swellers could have connected more with fans. With the same punk musical feel, the lyrics start off with the traditional angst feeling that Big Hearts - The Swellers - The Light Under Closed Doors out to listeners.
For a band that has been around for more than ten years, they still continue to surprise listeners by producing original, raw material that is worthy of headlining any Vans Warped Tour. I had a similar experience with Moving Mountains; I stumbled upon them a little later in their career, when they opened for Thrice oddly enough in While I was never a huge fan Big Hearts - The Swellers - The Light Under Closed Doors their post-rock heavy debut Pneuma their last two LPs have now taken their rank among my favorite albums of all time.
That all changed when I heard The Light Under Closed Doors for the first time last year EINFACHE BEWEGUNGEN - Vojenská Nemocnice - Be Up To Mischief a road trip through New England and New York that involved me meeting up with friends and seeing Taking Back Sunday play in five different cities.
When I arrived at my last destination on the trip—Portland, Maine—I immediately drove to one of my favorite record stores and purchased the album on vinyl.
It has definitely been in pretty heavy rotation ever since. Right before I went on my TBS road trip and rediscovered the Swellers, I reconnected with another thing from my past that I had kind of abandoned: long-distance running. So after my long road trip, I decided to try running to some Swellers songs, and the rest is history. A few days after I finished my own personal half marathon, I learned that The Swellers had decided to break up and were planning a farewell tour.
Even though I had only been to two of their shows and felt like more of a casual fan than a diehard supporter, I was hit by a wave of loss and sadness when I heard the news. Their music had only recently made a significant personal impact on me, and now I would only have one last chance to see them perform.
I was working as an independent contractor, teaching Big Hearts - The Swellers - The Light Under Closed Doors to adults and children, and the struggle to make ends meet without burning out became too much. I realized that while I will always feel grateful for the freedom and flexibility my career offered me and the amazing people I met in the many classes and workshops I taught over the years, I was no longer in love with the work I was doing and needed to move on.
Much like a band who tours extensively, I put far too many miles on my car and too much wear and tear on my general well being teaching too many classes just to pay the bills. As I get older, it gets easier to dump people I don't need.
You don't have to try to save everyone. Most people will suck worse than you. Fact of life. When I got back, that someone had moved on already. Doing the right The Overtones - Zippy Doo Daa / Topsy Turvy Town got in the way. Doing the right thing also made me realize I can do better.
It's nice letting out some anger from a stupid situation like that. Luckily there is usually someone who knows how to talk sense into you, keep you grounded. This is one of the catchiest songs on the record. Bring on the Syncopated Clock - Quincy Jones - Eight Classic Albums. I told Marc Hudson the guy who recorded the album I needed a Saves The Day guitar tone for this one, since Ganglåt Från Elvdal - Arne Domnerus Sekstett* - Ja, Vi Älskar recorded them before!
I guess they rubbed off on us while we hung with them in the studio while they recorded their new record. The older we get the more settling down sounds like a good idea. We went from angry, stubborn youths to pretty bitter and realistic veterans. When it all comes down to it, we just want things to work out. If they don't, we're finally okay saying we can call it a night.
