Cue the Doves Architectures of the Atmosphere

The Minneapolis, MN rock outfit Cue the Doves are a hodgepodge of melodic vocals and cosmic guitar breakdowns. Featuring ex-members of the Beautiful Mistake, Cue the Doves follow the tradition of Coheed and Cambria by incorporating sci-fi and post-hardcore. Technical yet catchy, "Course One: The Abductions” has a definitive Hum-vibe to it, while most other tracks on the record are very reminiscent of early Glassjaw. Architectures of the Atmosphere is a good, interesting listen. (Palomine/Minty Fresh)
