Darling Waste 

The Truth About Lies (10-34 Records)

If Cleveland didn't already have its trademark emo band, it's sure got one now. Just as Kate Voegele is our official Michelle Branch dead-ringer, Darling Waste is our answer to Dashboard Confessional.

Darling Waste is a bit more electrified and lushly arranged than Dashboard, but songwriter Lance Williams, who is Darling Waste to all intents and purposes, writes embarrassingly personal lyrics to make the listener feel his emotional pain. Which is not to say that Williams isn't a talented guy. He's got a vision, obviously, and he appears to be creating just what he wants to create. Fans of emotional post-punk could do a lot worse than The Truth About Lies. Those who give the stinkeye to such bands, consider this a warning.
