Apophenia – Band Review – New EP out now

Apophenia – “Orbiter”

Apophenia’s music is a warm amalgamation of indie rock and ambient tones. The term Apophenia is defined as the experience of seeing meaningful patterns or connections in random or meaningless data.

Their music seems so familiar when you first turn it on. I’m not sure if it’s because it sounds like something else or because the ambient sounds just make you feel all warm inside, but either way it kicks ass.  The way the vocals blend with the music just brings it all together. These guys are iLL!

A Hero En Route – “Wary As Bears” [ALBUM REVIEW]

Members:
Bobby Angle-Lead Vocals
Jon Steiner- Guitar
Austin McCool- Guitar
Jacob Hillenbrand- Bass
Frank Legeay- Drums

This is just GREAT!!! We’re getting more and more alternative rock coming from the indie world; and with that being said it is my pleasure to introduce you all to A Hero En Route from Evansville, IN with their newest album release, “Wary As Bears”. DAMN this is a good set of tracks. Not a very large EP but these 7 songs do enough justice until their next album which I’m sure we’ll see soon. These guys are BEASTS, having 4 self-released albums since ’08!!!

“Curses”

“Polished”

“Wary As Bears” has really stepped up the bands game and overall originality. This is definitely a “whole-way-through” type of album. Even the 52 second track “Bruiser” is absolutely beautiful and adds a smooth mellow feel to the transition between the albums’ clear hits, “Curses” and “Wary As Bears”. Comparing this band is pretty difficult because they have a lot of different feels to them that many other bands brings bits of. Red Jump Suite Apparatus being a very mainstream group is very comparable along with Panic! At The Disco vocals. The consistency of this album though, definitely sets A Hero En Route aside from the inconsistency of signed musicians’ hit making mentality.
