'World Record', what stepping up in 2011 sounds like. Thank you Lower Than Atlantis!
Making a huge leap from last year’s also-ace ‘Far Q’, ‘World Record’ is a faultless marriage of engaging musicianship and Mike Duce’s authentic account of the turmoil of youth. Incredible.
“It was a big of a gamble, because we wrote something we wanted to hear," he admits in the latest issue. "But we thought we’d alienate all the people who liked all the fast-paced stuff on our first album ‘Far Q’.”
