Album Review

This Orlando group's effort is teeming with a whiny teen-angst rock flavor as the band wallows in songs such as "The Shore," which would instantly bring to mind Simple Plan, with lead singer Aaron Harvey's timbre like that of Pierre Bouvier. When Mashlin attempt a softer, winding track with a gritty underbelly, "Arrive Like a Thief," the band fares better — but not much better. The emo characteristic is readily audible on efforts like "Bending Light in New Directions," which builds on Glen Wilson's bassline but opts for a softer melody à la the Cure. Fans of early Sloan circa "Coax Me" would definitely get a kick from the sweet and powerful "Autumn." Mashlin veer too far into the melancholia during "66 Books of Cleansing," which comes off a bit like Savage Garden or a sappy, piano-fueled lullaby. It seems that "Violet" is a logical evolution of this format, with guitars driving the chorus, giving it an ebb and flow not often found here. The band nails the hard, crunchy rock of "Cold Kiss of a Liar," with its off-kilter tempo thanks to drummer Jason Burrows. It's kind of like a cross between Nickelback and Billy Talent. "The Gray" is rather gray and ordinary, not really doing much for either the album or the listener. The album concludes on an anthemic, slow-building high note, however, thanks to "Letter to a Mentor." The melancholy thread found here is reminiscent of Matthew Good's finest work.

solid album, check out Mashlin

Whoever wrote the original review must have not been thinking of Radiohead and/or Smashing Pumpkins when they took a listen to this album. Great Album, Mashlin is a great band that deserves a second look past the offical review becasue it does not remind me of Simple Plan at all, if he had said Billy Corgan, that is a different story. I would agree the lead singer's timbre is whin-ish, but it is nowhere near the same timbre as that of Simple Plan's lead singer, nor do they appear to copy them.

Awesome

Very good first album, from beginning to end. I have seen them in Orlando a few times. Can't wait to see what comes from them in the future.

Biography

Formed: Orlando, FL

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '00s

The members of indie rock outfit Mashlin may have their roots in pop-punk, but the group came together with the purpose of doing more than just churning out the typical Warped Tour fare. Prior to Mashlin, vocalist/guitarist Aaron Harvey and guitarist Joe Knipp were playing together in the band Agent Felix. When the group happened to go out on tour with Orlando punks Unsung Zeros, the two friends quickly bonded over music with likeminded Zeros drummer Jason Burrows. Following the tour, the three kept...
