Connections - Body Language lp (Anyway Records)


"Body Language" is the second full length from Columbus' Connections,
whose sound at once echoes Ohio but also the vast history of the bands
and their collective knowledge of music. They say the mid-west is the
breadbasket of America and that Ohio is the heart of it all. The state
is, in fact, shaped like a heart and in the center of the heart lies
Columbus. A town larger than the rest and a melting pot of transplants
from around the state, Cleveland, Cincinnati and of course Dayton, where
the core of Connections hails from. The homegrown in Ohio breed loyalty
whether it's tragic loyalty (ala any Cleveland sports fan) or the hope
of yet another Big Red Machine, and the men in Connections have a
distinct loyalty to sound, the creation and bending of sound to
transport the listener to the front seat of the car, with a 40 oz
between your legs singing along to your favorite song as the "Summer
Creeps" does to total FM radio perfection. The sounds of massive record
collections are squeezed into and spit out into two and three minutes
bursts from the gleeful spree of "Late Shift" which recalls hints of the
Homosexuals "Astral Glamour" and the best Brit-pop of the 1990's, to
the Wire-esque "Girl's Night Out" while the fatter sound of "Aimless"
and "Hang On" have nods to the sound of Gaunt and Guided by Voices, they
know that some of the best finds are in your own back yard. Recorded
quickly with Adam Smith (Times New Viking, Dan Melchior and Columbus
Discount Records), the album is the sound of band hitting on all
cylinders and not slowing down in the process . Includes download card. - ANYWAY
