By Gregg Patel - If you haven’t noticed, music has been in a bit of a slump for the past decade. The music of today’s youth seems almost indistinguishable from the sounds of the early aughts. The music industry from the top – down seems to be little more than a goldfish feeding off its own excrement.

But more recently there is a new band known as Sound Cinema that seems to be unaware or indifferent to the linear progression of Rock n’ Roll. They take themselves seriously, but not in a rock star kind of way. They get on stage looking like they just rolled out of bed, yet they play each song as if it were their only moment in the world to make an impression. Perhaps it’s a technique they use to conserve physical and cerebral energy.

Upon first glance (or listen rather) they are nothing more than a throw-back Prog-Rock band, but after you hear their first song and then their second, it becomes clear they have little connection to pedantic progressive rock. Instead there is something else more emotional about their music, almost poetic, but removed from all linguistic constructs. Each melody seems like they are reading words from their diary through their instrument. They will be performing at The Mutiny on Friday June, 21. I suggest going. I will be there.
