Engine Down 7" (LOV010)
2. Hold All Applause
Harrisonburg, Virginia's Engine Down sprung forth from the ashes of Sleepytime Trio, and this seven-inch is an introduction to this intense quartet. Methodical, intricate, and beautiful guitar musings (featuring original guitarist Jeremy) lull you into submission only so you can be set up for the explosion that awaits. There is no time to waste, and Engine Down are ready to show you how to do the stop, drop, and roll when you realize this record has you on fire.
Recorded at Boombox Magnetica by Jonathan Kreinik.
"Heavy, dark, intense emotionalism fueled by angst-filled vocals and compostions that sway from melodic subtlety to the hammer effect"
- Suburban Voice
"I submit this band sounds as good as the Monorchid."
"Imagine a world with nothing wrong with it and the flowers blooming and then you will have Engine Down."
"The next time you want to trash your club and collect the insurance, tell your booking agent about Engine Down."
