“Cadmium” by Pinegrove from the CD/LP/Tape/Digital “Cardinal” available on Run For Cover Records released February 12th,2016. Pinegrove leader Evan Stephens Hall hinted at songwriting genius with earlier recordings, but Cardinal is a revelation of tunes not reliant on predictable song structure. The record sounds like the unveiling of a band out to make a career — sturdy melodies, lyrical depth, and a general sense of ease.a childhood band turns into a grown-up band, with life-long friends finding their footing with tunes equally comfortable in the alt-country and emo scenes. For the eight songs that sound like a modernized, Americana-informed mixture of American Football, Something to Write Home About-era Get Up Kids and Stay What You Are-era Saves the Day, we hear the stress, loneliness and reconciling adulthood with what we thought adulthood would be dealt with more honestly and directly than normal, each song containing a line or two that plainly summarize a myriad of feelings in just a few words. Life is full of ups and downs, fuck-ups and reconciliations, and at the end of the day Pinegrove wants us to know it’s all (probably) going to be okay. The band originate from Montclair, New Jersey.
