Accidental Tribe – Resolution

Artist                 Accidental Tribe

CD                    Resolution

Rating               3 of 5 stars

Over the years we’ve seen rock & hard rock slowly erode into over-commercialized, corporate puppet shows providing music that is extremely sing-songy, predictable, popish & highly corporate. I hereby call this new breed of music “Poser Rock” & I want to personally thank all the corporate giants for successfully transforming “Sex Drugs & Rock n Roll” into “Yoga, Vitamins, & Nikelback” Of course millions of musical lemmings don’t know the difference, but not everyone is amused. Talking to many music fans out there the response is overwhelming. Give me something new, something raw, something that pushes the envelope with a fresh sound that doesn’t sound like Nikelback, Daughtry or Lifehouse.

So across my desk slides the new CD by New York’s own Accidental Tribe. What I heard put a smile on my face.  This latest CD entitled Resolution has everything the name implies. It’s a nice easy flowing record that delivers solid songwriting with a hard hitting rock edge. Accidental Tribe reminds me of a modern day Weezer, Green Day & even Nirvana, Soundgarden & Peal Jam – but a bit more passionate & melodic. There’s definitely a raw underground New York garage band vibe here. If you like the above bands you should definitely check out this CD, which is available on CD BABY & can be downloaded on I–Tunes.

Resolution by Accidental Tribe is a solid release with many hard rocking grooves with a heavy New York guitar driven sound that hits hard right between the eyes. It’s a record that gives us a fresh glimpse at a new artist & takes us back a few years – before everything started sounding like – well Nikelback.
