Everything Absent or Distorted
Everything Absent or Distorted had strength in numbers. There were usually at least eight members, which sometimes ballooned to a dozen or more, depending on the show, and together they created some huge, buoyant and joyous sounds, with a wide assortment of instruments. Unfortunately, the guys decided to call it quits last month, and this is their swan song. The Lucky One comprises four songs that clock in at 35 minutes total, but they're four brilliant and gorgeously produced tracks that capture the vibrant urgency of the band's live sets. While it's a bit bittersweet to listen knowing that EAOD might not ever play again, there are some beautiful moments on The Lucky One. And if anyone's lucky, it'll be you for wrapping your ears around it.
