There Will Be Blood Tonight marks the debut of young Seattle trio the Divorce. Led by the vocals and guitar of Shane Berry, the band also includes bassist Jimmy Curran and drummer Kyle Risan. Like their contemporaries in Dolour and OK Go, the Divorce cross the spiky, corrosive guitar lines of early new wave with that genre's jaunty organ, intersects the angular melodies of indie rock's heyday, and chops off the end of each sharply rendered lyrical couplet, singeing the exposed skin with youthful naïveté. Album opener "The Man Moan" lurches into gear with shredding guitar, distorted bass, and a humming organ. "At night I pray that I'll get off," Berry preens, only to revel cleverly in his own self-loathing as he drops the punchline: "The whole next day I hide from God." Later, "Samoa's Revenge" heists the theme to Batman for a first-person rant about...what? Who knows -- fashion models, drugs, debauchery? They're all potential answers, but for the Divorce, real meaning is less important than stylized florescence. Britt Daniel's miniature anthems to neurosis come to mind repeatedly during There Will be Blood Tonight. Even though Spoon is much more mature a group, the Divorce might be, could be, a peach-fuzz version of the venerated Austin combo. After all, talent is boldly on display throughout Blood, from the crunchy guitar that drowns out a Weird Science organ ("The Academy") to anthemic chorus salvos that cleverly mask simplistic lyrics ("Redcoats"). The Divorce could come to groom a thick beard of smart, ultramodern indie rock, but at this point, their potential is just sprouting over a perfectly quivering lip.

Lets just say the CD has not left my car. Its that good! Three talented boys from the Pacific Northwest. These boys will put it back on the map.
From start to finish, it really is a great album. The mix of AC/DC and J LO is quite impressive to say the least.
Ever since I got this album I've been listening to it nonstop and so has my roommate. I would recommend listening to the song "Redcoats", but the entire album is great. I can't wait to hear their new album in September. Great on the recording and amazing in concert!!!
