Past Lives Tapestry of Webs

Past Lives Tapestry of Webs
The most faithful remnants of progressive punk legends the Blood Brothers have taken serious strides to give Past Lives name recognition on their own merits with Tapestry of Webs. Following up their debut EP with a full roster of new material, this foursome hold the punk flag of their past higher than their Jaguar Love peers, but show signs of developing a distinct musical personality more reminiscent of the Clash's mid-tempo experimental swagger than At the Drive-In's muscular spazz-outs. Chalk it up to maturity, but chilling out while nurturing their exploratory edge was a good move for these guys. Jordan Blilie hasn't increased his vocal range much, still falling victim to pitch issues, but he's gained confidence and control. Moods shift carefully and whispers of world music colour the canvass of expansive rock history Tapestry of Webs is richly painted on. Emerging as unique purveyors of vibe, mysterious, unsettling, enthralling and inspiring, often within the same song, Past Lives have their own legacy to live up to now too. (Suicide Squeeze)
