Quickening Makes a Welcomed Return with 'Color Your Lines' 

Album Review

Quickening

Color Your Lines self-released)

facebook.com/quickeningmusic

Prior to this year, local indie rockers the Quickening hadn't booked a gig in six years. But the band — singer-guitarist James Isom, drummer Patrick Ginley and bassist Darren Irwin — recently reunited and played a show at Mahall's earlier this year. Recorded with Bill Korecky (Mushroomhead) at his Mars Recording, this new EP picks up where the emo-ish alt-rockers left off. Opening track, "I Used To," features quivering vocals and a brittle guitar riff, and sounds a bit like Kings of Leon as Isom ponders, "What the hell are you working for?" With its deep, rumbling vocals and dramatic guitar flourishes, the somber, moody title track recalls Live. Dyamic guitar work distinguishes the album's two other songs, "3.21" and "Bullets." All in all, this marks a welcomed return to the local scene.

Quickening performs with So Long, Albatross and the Universe Doesn't Stand a Chance Against Joshua Jesty at 10 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 12, at Happy Dog.
