City And Colour - 'The Hurry And The Harm'

A career U-turn that doesn't quite hit the right track

City And Colour - 'The Hurry And The Harm'

Album Info

  • Release Date: May 27, 2013
  • Label: Dine Alone/Cooking Vinyl
As unexpected career changes go, this one's up there with Jodie Marsh becoming a bodybuilder. Canadian singer/guitarist Dallas Green used to craft throat-shredding post-hardcore with Alexisonfire, but now he releases slide guitar-plated emo-indie as City And Colour. With a voice like James Mercer's and Biffy support slots he's got stuff to work with, but the lack of variety is stifling. Listening to 12 Americana mid-pacers makes you feel like blasting out some, er, throat-shredding post-hardcore to remind yourself you're still awake.
