the Age of Rockets


Thanks to Andrew and his rather insightful post over at emotionalpunk.com, I am able to bring to you the sounds of the Age of Rockets. It’s Friday, and I’m not willing to write a lot. Therefore, you’re going to have to deal with some less than stellar comparisons. The Age of Rockets makes mellow, electronic influenced indie pop songs. He (one man in the studio, but many on stage) is undoubtedly keen on the sounds of the Postal Service and the vocal stylings of Ben Gibbard. The songs could use a bit of polishing, but in due time I think the Age of Rockets has the ability to create something pretty interesting.

    We live in an age where our most cherished mediums have been broken to pieces by technology and variety. Though there is little hope to move beyond this obstruction, one must give their respect to those who at least make the smallest attempt. The Age of Rockets embraces it’s limitations, doesn’t bother to clean up the sploches of fecal matter that are it’s influences, and continues to ride the wave of a muffled Ben Gibbard side project. Flashes of electronica will never hide poor songwriting, and this becomes all too obvious halfway through the first listen. It’s almost sad, but if you look closely enough at any of the bands promotional photos, you can see how badly stained lead singer/songwriter Andrew Futrals pants are from having a rather involved wet dream of what his life and work would be like if he could tap into the percieved pain of Radiohead’s Thom Yorke; It’s really quite difficult to imagine anything more contrived. I recommend this to all the little girls and boys who ride the waves of love and despair without ever leaving their house, and to those who have just noticed their first little emo pube staring them straight in their tear-filled eyes.
