Anadivine Zoo

Like other progressive indie bands from upstate New York, such as Coheed and Cambria, Anadivine mix painstakingly beautiful harmonies with punk inspired guitar. Zoo shows promise with some interesting ’80s percussive touches on "Love, Lust and Fake Integrity” which help bring out the band’s ability to write catchy hooks. "Capitol Arrangement”, on the other hand, is full of noisy pleasures. Generally this album flows really well, but it never really ventures beyond the set parameters of current emo. Songs all seem to fit a pre-established mould perhaps set by Jimmy Eat World in the late ’90s. It’s worth a listen because it definitely has the promise of growing on you. (Militia Group)
