CD REVIEW: Stripes And Lines "Mutiny On The Coast Of Excess"

Mutiny on the Coast of Excess

Stripes And Lines are and incredibly interesting and talented band out of San Diego, CA. They have managed to most indie rock that is reminiscent of bands like Death Cab For Cutie and Rogue Wave with their So Cal energy for an awesome album of new music that embraces a sound that is all their own. The music is mellow yet upbeat. "Dillinger" and "Slow Motion" are the surefire favorites of the eight tracks on the album, but all the songs have a quality that makes you want to listen again and again. Having shared the stage with acts such as Fiction Family, Switchfoot, and Company Of Thieves, it's easy to see how their music bridges many different genres and is for all fans of any style of music. Indie rock is alive and well in southern California, and Stripes And Lines are delivering it beautifully.
