My Body Sings Electric

Pop-punk stalwart My Body Sings Electric used to lean heavy, but the band heads more toward pop on its latest release. Recorded at Interlace Audio in Portland, Changing Color is a highly polished affair of airtight instrumentation and squeaky-clean vocals. This album would have no problem finding airwaves a half-decade ago; it still might get there today. These guys are as technically precise as you can be, and this thing sounds best when they're going for gymnastic guitar lines and disjointed construction. Tickle Me Pink broke up, leaving shoes to be filled at the top of the local pop-punk scene. With Changing Color, My Body Sings Electric seems ready to step in.
