Album Review

As the record industry continues to crumble, the digital revolution gradually finds its footing to provide the artistic freedom and everyman accessibility that are supposed to counterbalance the fact that Metallica can't move units the way they used to. Enter Daphne Loves Derby, a three-piece band from Kent, Washington, with members so young they would have most certainly been eaten up and spit out by the recording industry machine of an earlier era, despite the fact that whiz-kid singer Jason Call graduated college (yes, college) by 18. This band built its reputation on the strength of several demos circulated on the Internet via websites like Purevolume and the ubiquitous Myspace. Of course, the result of their high-bandwidth success is a regular old-fashioned record deal, and the sound of their first album rides so close to Death Cab for Cutie, Jimmy Eat World, and the like that they could have been assembled in a record company meeting. But as Reality Bites teens of a new generation overtake the rap-rock ignorance of their older brothers, no one need complain about the stop-start sway of "You Versus the World" or the wash of garage-tuned power chords that drives "Sundays." It's still been a bit of a wait for some honestly surprising music to reach listeners' attention via the web, though.

Customer Reviews

Convinced by the Strengths

I have to say I completely discovered Daphne Loves Derby by accident. I happened upon the song "Kirby" while searching iTunes and fell in love with the song, so I was eager to hear the rest of the album. If you're a fan of Alternative or Rock, I'd recommend trying "On the Strength of all Convinced" out. One of my favourite aspects of the album is the bizarre mix of happy rhythms and tunes combined with lyrics you'd generally imagine hearing in more mellow music (although the album has a good share of that too), which means it can work no matter what mood you're in. Highlights of the album would be the fantastic opening track, "Sundays", the mellow and calming "Birthday Gallery" and "You Versus the Sea", along with the thrilling "Kirby" and cool uplifting closing track, "What We Have Been Waiting For". Of course, favourite tracks are always subjective to one's opinion. Daphne Loves Derby are certainly an interesting and enjoyable new group to hit the alternative rock scene, and I personally will be keeping a close eye on any future releases by the band.

A Little Discovered Masterpeice

I found Daphne Loves Derby, like many of my now favourite bands through the Punk Goes Acoustic compilations and I can safely say that they are one of my favourites. Its a real shame that they broke up and moved on as the songs on this album posess some quality and richness that other artists just don't capture. The ocasional use of violins and light electric piano makes for a very interesting and peaceful sound in some songs, with other providing the heavy rocking sound that you could listen to in anger.
Definitely check out their other main album and also have a listen to Kenny Choi's (Lead Singer) follow up project Wolftron. Well with a listen.


Formed: Kent, WA

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '00s

Like Nirvana did almost two decades previously, the pop-friendly indie trio Daphne Loves Derby originally formed in a small town near Seattle, WA (Kent rather than Aberdeen, in their case) when the bandmembers were still teenagers. However, Kurt Cobain and Krist Novoselic didn't have the Internet when they were kids, so they didn't have the opportunities to jump the queue afforded by websites like MySpace...
