    [ Silent Kids ]


    Tomorrow Waits (Two Sheds)

    silent kids are a quartet of atlantans that are self described as "easily mistaken for an Elephant Six outfit were it not for its use of soaring guitars" And the some. The guitar sound these folks use is enveloping rather than overwhelming, making them a friendly monster of rock. These thick fuzzy colors, reminiscent of Billy Corgan at his best, combine with melodies and arrangements more akin to solo John Lennon and George Harrison than anything the Beatles ever dished out. Lest we be left in a total time warp, clever drum loops and keyboard tasties pepper the record with enough texture to keep the whole thing from feeling washed out or dated. The result presents the listener with a sound that has the overall feel of watching Scooby Doo re-runs in a huge overstuffed easy chair that's been upholstered with deep shag carpeting. It's not always comfortable but certainly a fun and unique experience.

    Tomorrow Waits is able to present a full record of this sound without ever becoming tiresome. Its 11 songs are well ordered and varied with little filler. Standout tracks include "drift into summer" "lost in a petrified forest" "miami" and "tomorrow waits", but each track offers many endearing qualities.

    Silent kids just finished an East Coast Tour and are writing material for a new release.
