Rev releases ‘The Restless Are Natives’
"Kryszak hatched the plan for the series of songs that would become “The Restless Are Natives” a year back, in the initial days of the Occupy movement. Though not specifically a concept album, the 13 songs, according to Kryszak, “seem to hover around people struggling, both on and off our society’s grid.” The album blends anger and empathy, balancing gritty, post-punk guitar figures against more reflective, esoteric melodic and harmonic movements. “Restless” is also an abundantly rich recording, with plenty of ear candy for the audiophile and headphone-obsessive alike."
The Buffalo News
Buffalo, NY based Rev have been creating bright and brainy prog-minded post punk rock music since 2000. This, their third album is straight-up modern rock serving as a template to dazzling excursions into an array of influences including Euro-folk-psych balladry, shoe-gazey electronica and David Byrne style rock 'n mull contemplation. "Hail" is a striking and mind numbingly upright song with a cerebral prog influence, rainy day guitars, and druggy "Astral Weeks" philisophical gaze. "Mystery Beat" is the defining sound in shoe-gaze psyche. Tinkering acoustic guitar and and a maraca beat battle with metal guitar anchor for closure. "Played" is a driving rocker with aggressive guitar and catchy "anguished-artist" lyrics. "The Restless Are Natives" offers several avenues to rock and gaze by. It's appeal grows with each listen. The songs strive to break the barrier between digestible pop music and true exploration of the psyche.
