While their band name could easily spark a religious debate, there's really no debating that Christ vs Krishna's sophomore album Move And Scale is catchy. Really catchy. It was impossible not to tap a foot or chair-dance along as I listened. Trust me, I tried. But this is a refreshingly listenable album.
This follow-up to their debut offering (Sidewalk Astronomy) is sure to spark further interest in an indie scene that sees much of the same thing repeated ad nauseum. They've managed to mix a new wave, Brit-pop base with a unique indie rock twist. From Teezer to The Sorrows, Move And Scale has a distinct sound.
Something about the album makes me think it would be a perfect fit for a soundtrack - the songs evoke a certain feeling and imagery that could really make a great backdrop for a film. If John Hughes were still around, he'd be all over it.
I highly recommend going to check out Christ vs Krishna at their album release party on April 5th at the Silver Dollar Room. They'll also be releasing a new video for We Stand Alone that night, which just might be my favourite track on the album.
Have a listen and let me know what you think:
