Bread Club: Alive/Well

Alive//Well cover art
Alive/Well is the new album from San Jose band Bread Club. The band of Jeff Wilson, Taylor Bortner, Cole Calvo and David Lechuga have a classic emo sound that is a cross between bands like Sunny Day Real Estate and Panic at the Disco, with a little Used thrown in for good measure. The eleven tracks are musically heavy, driving and loud. Both of the lead vocalists are a little ragged throughout and unfortunately hold back the overall effect of the record a bit, but the songs are strong, arrangements are solid and there's enough rockin for anyone. Stream, download and buy Alive/Well on limited edition CD or cassette at the link below.
