City-State, Monument 2007

The band City-State quickly became one of my favorite new bands when I heard their
“Wolves” + 4 EP last year, in fact it was #7 on my 2006 EP Picks.

The bands new album, Monument was released this past week on Liberty Fuse Records and once again this 4 member band from Washington D.C. has dropped in and swept me away with intense marching drums and atmospheric guitars. And Jim Anderson’s soaring vocals blend effortlessly with the dark melodic rock. Monument does a wonderful job of displaying City-State’s own unique style amongst their post-punk rock comrade’s.

    I couldn’t agree more with you Rachel. The music really “sinks in” (if you know what I mean).

    I was lucky enough to get a copy of this CD from the band as well and it is truly wonderful – you beat me to it!

    (I’m still planning on a review-type post as well over at my place though!) :)
