Free track/review: 17 Dots: Christie Front Drive “S/T”
May 29 2010
From 17 Dots:
Seminal emo poster boys Christie Front Drive helped sketch the blueprint for literally hundreds of mall-dwelling, marble notebook-scribbling imitators. But this Denver quartet’s just reissued, self-titled second album from 1997, alternately known as Stereo remains a gorgeous collection of splayed rock masterpieces. The guitars shimmer and dash while the drums stay low in the mix. Eric Richter and Jason Begin sing simultaneously, but never collide. Their chemistry on “Fin” is like any good relationship: Sweet, sincere, a little desperate, and completely unique.
