An Albatross - The Family Album (2008)

Like Daughters and The Locust, these guys were formerly associated with the "grindcore" scene. And, just as both of those bands' recent albums had shattered the constraints of that rarely accurate label by making songs over a minute or two long, so have An Albatross. This is more than the genre-bending you've come to expect from them, with the help of a bit more compositional breathing room, which mostly means that there's more to enjoy.

Patrick, I just saw this band play a show. Like a couple of hours ago. It was pretty cool, except it got pushed back about an hour because Christian Finnegan from Best Week Ever was performing next door and I guess we were ruining it with our noise show.

I'm really digging this album a bunch. And Christian Finnegan is a punk.
