KallocaiN “Between Two States”

They do the Death Cab for Cutie thing, especially on leadoff track “Firecracker.” Subdued synths and meek guitar create a void that only powerful vocals can fill, but the vocals are just regular strength. So it feels a bit restrained.
“Genesis” has nothing to do with the band. Actually it sounds more like Better Than Ezra but admittedly not as good. “I Fear Us All” moves along in fits and starts. They just need to let it all hang out, even if that’s what their parents would say. Sometimes, they’re accidentally right, and that’s OK.
“I Don’t Know Where We Are” is much smoother, with the guitar towing the song to the finish line. It’s not overly complex, but it works a lot better than most of the tracks on here. I’m also a fan of “The Way to Lose Everything You Own.”
