Album Review: Tallhart - We Are The Same


Tallhart / We Are The Same / Rory Records / Producer: Brad Wood / Score: 9 out of 10

The days of “the album” are gone in most mainstream music. Musical soldiers like Manchester Orchestra and the Dear Hunter, however, are fighting the good fight to keep what’s under the radar, pure in sound and authentic in feeling. The underground’s newest recruit, Tallhart, are pitching in to do their part. Debuting under Rory Records (Max Bemis of Say Anything’s Equal Vision subsidiary) We Are The Same deftly transitions from one track to the next, from the pop sounds of “Fighter” to the indie fixed “Mexico” and the more gospel-influenced “See God Again.” One’s only complaint is the need to continue the good vibes—a 10 track record should last a bit longer than 33 minutes fellas!          – Andy Mesecher
