CD REVIEW: Fanfarlo "Reservoir"

Indie rock has never sounded so good. The dark melodies and and moody delivery of the lyrics sets Fanfarlo apart from many indie rock bands on the scene these days. It is reminiscent of Arcade Fire and even a little matt pond PA, as the instrumentation and orchestration of the music is beautifully executed. Songs such as "I'm A Pilot" and "Ghosts" stand out as lyrical masterpieces. Other tracks like the single "Harold T. Wilkins," show how accessible the bands music is, despite the fact they stand out by being different from what is on the radio now. "Fire Escape" and "Luna" are also songs that show off the mastery of their compositions. Fanfarlo is a diamond in the rough, and this album will thoroughly be enjoyed by music fans of any kind.
