Something happens when these eight people come together. Put them on a stage, and something larger than even this relatively large band blossoms, ecstatic and cathartic and inspiring. And like the songs on River City Extension's second album, Don't Let the Sun Go Down On Your Anger, it may not hit you over the head from the first moment; rather, it's a journey. It sneaks up on you as these songs breathe and grow and change -- as apt a microcosm of life as any you'll find in music.
"Half of this record is love songs, and the other half is 'I'm sorry that I fucked up' songs," says singer/songwriter/guitarist Joe Michelini. Such compellingly forthright new tunes as "If You Need Me Back In Brooklyn," "Slander," "Down, Down, Down" and "Point of Surrender" confront thorny issues of personal and spiritual struggle in a manner that's both intimate and illuminating, while the band drives home Michelini's hard-won lyrical insights with evocative arrangements that make inventive use of a wide range of instruments and sonic textures.
