This Is Going to Be Their Year


Today’s AP Tour at House of Blues features four new bands picked by Alternative Press as having a pretty good chance for a stellar 2007. We think two of the groups have a shot. As Tall as Lions gets all dreamy on its second, self-titled album. The scruffy New York indie-rockers sound like one of those moody post-Radiohead bands, like Snow Patrol or Coldplay. Yet it builds quite a bit of tension with its atmospheric space-rock. Meanwhile, headliners Cute Is What We Aim For fall into Fall Out Boy’s stable of starry-eyed pop-punks. Its debut album, The Same Old Blood Rush With a New Touch, is loaded with just as many chewy hooks, fuzzy riffs, and wordy titles (“Sweat the Battle Before the Battle Sweats You,” “I Put the ‘Metro’ in Metronome”) as anything Pete Wentz’s crew has come up with.
