REVIEW: In The Shade by Aspen Grove

What do you get when you cross Pink FloydGodspeed You! Black Emperor, and Salt Lake City? A fantastic local band called Aspen Grove! Aspen Grove, the band formally known as Archeopteryx makes some dang good music! This album is full of soothing vocals, bad ass instrumentals and radical chord progressions. Only three songs long this album has a soul behind it and you can here the passion in every bar.  It’s not every day that I get blown away by local bands but this one has something special. Even though at times the band has a tendency to vamp for a little to long it moves at a quick enough pace to keep me from having to strain my ears to enjoy it.  Most measures build on the last and it climax’s and melodic restitution’s kept me on the edge of my seat. Very good local album 9/10!
