Algernon Cadwallader – s/t Demo

Say it with me now: "al-jur-non kad-wall-uh-der" The name is hard to say, but this band is extremely easy to fall in love with. Algernon offer uplifting rock songs with a twist. Each tune is propelled by swirling and intricate guitar melodies. The finger-tapped guitar interplay alone is reason enough to love this band. Singer Pete bears a striking vocal resemblance to Mike Kinsella, and much of the bands instrumentation could be compared to a more complex and melodic version of Cap’n Jazz, with a tad of Faraquet thrown in for good measure. Weather it’s the bright guitar tones, swift drumming, or strained vocals, there is just something about Algernon Cadwallader that makes the listener feel optimistic. They make you want to get out of your chair, go outside, and do something, anything! Best of all, this demo is available for free through their myspace: Go have a listen and you’ll thank me later.
