REVIEW: Abandcalledboy – PC World


Utilizing all the colors in the proverbial crayon box, ABandCalledBoy colors inside the lines, outside the lines, pretty much wherever the spirit moves them. The result, PC World, a collection of sound art masterworks.

Pure Nostalgia is the most playful and cryptic of these compositions. Renaissance Man and Choke display a bit more conformity in the alt-rock milieu with unmistakable brushstrokes in heavy metal.

The deep grind of guitar in Renaissance Man distort and delight the senses, and the wraithlike changes in Choke are an unexpected enchantment.

You’ll want them on your playlist, and seeing them live on your to-do list. This band has piqued my interest and I’m anxious to see what other tricks they have up their sleeve. Noelle Ellis,
