Reseña de álbum

After Dead to Me lead singer and founding member Jack Dalrymple moved on from music to pursue fatherhood full-time, the rest of the band continued on, taking three years to deliver a proper full-length follow-up to Cuban Ballerina. On African Elephants, the charmingly gruff vocal interplay between Dalrymple and second vocalist/guitarist Chicken is sadly absent, but replacement vocalist Nathan Grice picks up the slack aptly as the band's new frontman. The NOFX-influenced three-chord So-Cal punk aesthetic is still evident, especially in the quick-paced, hook-filled shout-along anthems "Modern Muse," "Nuthin Runnin' Through My Brain," and "Fell Right In." Elsewhere, however, the band strays from the norm in the dub-infused Clash tributes "X" and "A Day Without War." Meanwhile, "Cruel World" and "California Sun" paint Dead to Me in a new jangly light, as clean-shaven balladeers. While these departures are a far cry from the typical zippy punk numbers that fans of Fat Wreck and One Man Army might expect, African Elephants marks a tasty new direction for the San Franciscan rockers.

Missing Something

Dead to Me was one of my favorite "newer" bands. Cuban Ballerina and Little Brother were both incredible listens from start to finish. I feel like this album is missing the obvious...Jack. Still very talented I will always support this band but just not the same to me. Too many slower songs. I like my punk fast!!!

What the hell is this?!

Wow. Garbage. This truly breaks my heart. I loved Cuban Ballerina, and I LOVED Little Brother, but this is just bad. There are a couple of passable songs like "Cruel World" or "Modern Muse" but that would be about it. The song "Blue" is a joke and I can't stand it. What a fall from grace this band made, hopefully it's a sophomore slump, but it doesn't seem that way. Such a bummer. Dead To Me could have been a saving grace for punk rock. Cheers.

Best punk release of the fall

Different but better than previous releases. The EP was very telling...a bridge between the debut and this. I will be playing this for the coming winter. Wonderful.

Biografía

Fecha de formación: San Francisco, CA, 2003

Género: Alternativa

Años de actividad: '00s

Punk revivalists Dead to Me formed in late 2003 in the wake of the dissolution of San Francisco's One Man Army. The band formed around OMA vets Jack Dalrymple (guitar/vocals) and Brandon Pollack (guitar); Western Addiction bassist Chicken (who also worked at Fat Wreck Chords) soon joined on and split vocals with Dalrymple. Boasting a working-class sound similar to OMA that blended late-'70s punk with the sonic grit of a band like Dillinger Four, they eventually recruited Chicken's cousin Ian Anderson...
