Buzz Alert: We Can All Be Sorry delivers technical power pop on latest release





Buzz Alert: We Can All Be Sorry delivers technical power pop on latest release

The only thing that I'm truly apologetic about is that I'm having a really difficult time jamming Boston-based We Can All Be Sorry neatly into the lines of any clear genre. The band's latest release, Weekend Sorry, is arguably their most acessible album, and one where they really seem to have gelled comfortably into (mostly) coherent grooves (think the power pop vibes of old-school Weezer), but throwing adjectives out there like punky, poppy, jazzy, or post-whatever really does the band a disservice. Sure, there are muscular melody lines and a powerful sense of song structure, but there's also something delightfully off-kilter about the band's sound. There's the almost-reckless display of atonal play, unexpected chord progressions, and clever use of dynamics that manages to be salient on the recording, but never overtly so. It's a delicate balance that screams classical training, but is so totally devoid of pretension or obvious eye-roll-inducing technique-flexing that would cloud the real meat of the songs. The result is a refreshing display of talent that never edges toward tipping its own hand. It's also 10 tracks of kick-ass tunes you'll find hard to not be humming the hooks of.
