Touche Amore – “Is Survived By” LP
The third studio album by this Los Angeles post-hardcore band. Originally released in 2013, and produced and engineered by Brad Wood (Smashing Pumpkins, Sunny Day Real Estate). With its more mature and ambitious approach to the songwriting it was immediately recognised as an important progression for the band, expanding song lengths and musical variation. Still cathartic and explosive, with an added balance of unexpected hook laden melodies – like an American version of Envy.
