Like the Appleseed Cast, Nebraska's Race for Titles add depth to their take on emo by drawing on the vintage sounds of the Lucy Show and the Chameleons. The resulting S/T has some exceptionally good moments. Boasting the lucid, powerful vocals of frontman James Massey, who brings Thursday's Geoff Rickly to mind on the declarative blast of "AM/PM," RFT experiment with tempo changes on "We Can Start Here" as they veer from a somber and melodic entry point to a cathartic end. While the exceptionally arranged, electrifying "Static Online" finds these Omaha natives hitting their stride, they don't seem to connect on the loosely executed and noticeably weak "Don't Forget to Breathe." The soothing, Cocteau Twins-inspired instrumental "Dimmer" does an about-face, however, bridging the promising roar of "The Distance Session" with the dour, suffocating end of "Goodbye (Good Night)."
