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.

What We Have Been Waiting For

Ladies and gentlemen, it is time to welcome the return of rock. And by rock, I don’t mean the pseudo-punk bands that sound more like the Backstreet Boys than The Clash (think Good Charlotte) or the pretentious rock coming out of New York (think The Strokes). I’m talking about the old time rock and roll Bob Seger talked about. This rock can be found in the form of Daphne Loves Derby. O.K., the name is cheesy in a Jonnie Loves Chachi kind of way, but it’s not anywise than Hoobastank or Limp Bizquit, and the music is definably better than those bands. On the rock spectrum, Daphne Loves Derby falls somewhere between Better Than Ezra and Jimmy Eat World. The music stays upbeat throughout On the Strength of All Convinced, slowing down for Birthday Gallery, a song about a guy trying to accept everything a girl tells him, “Believe me, I believe everything you say. Even if you claimed you heard a ghost sing songs.” They also slow it down for the acoustic Pollen and Salt and the mellow Debussie. With the song Kirby, Daphne Loves Derby channels their northwest roots with a grunge influenced vibe (they grew up not far from Seattle). On the downside, it’s hard to distinguish some song from other and with only ten songs; the album can get repetitive real quickly. Lyrically is where the band shines, topics range admiration of a girl (You, Are the strength inside my veins. Oh, I want to feel the strength you know. – Sundays), pondering the end of a relationship (Don't ask me to think good intentions will change everything. This could be the last day that I hold my breath and wait for you. – Hammers and Hearts), and regret (Please let me take your pain away for one day – Middle Middle). Hopefully this album is only a sign of what’s to come. If they can branch out musically in the future, they will be around fort a long time.

The Next Dashboard Confessional

On the Strength of All Convinced is in my opinion the best CD of 2005. The record is chocked full of well-written songs with beautiful harmonies, intricate guitars, solid bass, and driving but at the same time soft drums. If you like indie/emo music like Dashboard Confessional or This Providence, than this record is for you. Kenny has an amazing voice that is strong but at the same relaxed which fits this genre perfectly. My favorite song on the album is Sundays because the lyrics are so well thought out and the word "coffee" is used, something the Seattle band and everyone listening can relate to. You will not be dissapointed with this band that is on the rise to stardom.

"MIDNIGHT HIGHWAY"!!!

"Midnight Highway" has to be my all time favorite song by Daphne Loves Derby! it's the reason I fell in love with them ...but iTunes dosen't carry it! (argh) we need this song on itunes becasue it's the greatest song Ever!!! ...if you don't believe me just read the lyrics and see for yourself. ----> Your bitter goodbye is ringing through this quiet night, This idle hour just wont pass. I've never missed you this much, never thought I would, Didn't think you'd feel so far away. Your summer perfume is still blowing through this hallway, Autumn's amber red shadows dance. I miss our midnight rides, on highway 18, 18 is gone. So go past the lights and all the excuses. You could have left, sincerely yours. Don't you think it's obvious that I want to say more? But anything too daring to say to you, Will be said in this letter, then burned away, So you never realize, I'm here. I'm thinking of your vague reply, So I can understand, Why we put this at rest, Why we forget to, Say that we were leaving, And say that we were sorry, The past remains unspoken, As this vacant night is dying. But I still miss your summer perfume. This cold air brings in such a distance to us, Such a painful distance. But I'm still waiting for you to say, you hate me now, So I don't have too. Hold on to this burning heart, This burning heart is getting old, It's getting old. While sitting on this cold kitchen floor, Head down to hide the tears, I've realized, I've finally realized, That you were never, You were never meant, for me.

Biography

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...
