Album Review

After two albums of increasingly big indie rock, the Airborne Toxic Event take a little time to wander with their third album, Such Hot Blood. Working this time with producer Jacquire King, who has worked with artists like Dawes, Of Monsters and Men, and Tom Waits, the band makes full use of his versatility, stepping away from the rhapsodic, Arcade Fire-inflected rock of its previous albums to try something a little smaller and more personal. On the country-inflected "Bride & Groom," it feels as if the band is going for something a little more earnestly...well...earnest, evoking emotion from listeners through the song's narrative rather than strapping them to a rocket of strings and synths and shooting for the stars. The problem is, shooting for the stars is really where the Airborne Toxic Event are at their best, so while songs like "Timeless" and "The Fifth Day" might feel like they are treading on old ground, it's when they have the time and space to really stretch out that they're able to get up to full speed.

Customer Reviews

Subtle Brilliance

For me, one of the most under-rated bands in the industry today. They have the perfect blend of melody and all out rock!

Understated

Must agree with a previous reviewer,they are so under-rated & do not get any radio play,which i have never understood as they do produce really good tuneful rock.
This still has that rock sound but somehow you feel they smoothed those sharp corners,you're left with strong melodies & an album with a sense of drama about it.

Dramatic & even a bit romantic,The Toxic really soar on this one.

Worth the wait

Great album yet again. Can't help wondering though how many sales they have lost out on because of the ridiculous delay in releasing it over here.

Formed by novelist Mikel Jollett during a tumultuous period in his life, the Airborne Toxic Event (named after a section in American author Don DeLillo's novel White Noise) combine literate indie rock with real literary cred. Formed in 2006, the group initially took shape as a Los Angeles-based duo, with Jollett and drummer Daren Taylor serving as the only members. A roster expansion was eventually needed; as a result, classically trained violinist Anna Bulbrook was brought in to play viola and keyboards,...
