"Lawrence's New Rock Scene"

"American Low Life has the best live show you'll see this year."

""In Vino" Review"

On its latest EP, Lawrence trio American Low Life lurches between hooky pop-punk sweetness and guttural hardcore growling and back again, like a Warped Tour Jekyll and Hyde. But far from struggling with an identity crisis, American Low Life seems perfectly content in its reluctance to settle into one genre. The individual tracks on In Vino Veritas run the stylebook of teased-up, angular haircuts — from heartfelt emo to melodic punk rock to near metalcore. There's even a piano breakdown toward the end of "Countdown to Wide Awake and Physical" (all the songs have long, intentionally awkward titles) that sounds like a parody of Tom Waits, after which the song abruptly stops. Though sloppy and uneven, the band's energy never lets up, and this somewhat makes up for the lack of formal coherence on In Vino. Considering that this is the band's second release of 2009, American Low Life is clearly young and excited. Assuming these guys just want to have fun, they're set. Expanding on their potential, however, is gonna take some decision making.

American Low Life is a Lawrence, KS based power trio formed in the late months of 2008. Their sound is best described as a fast paced technical variety of indie rock with scattered piano pieces and lyrics based on the grassroots principles of the modern counter culture. Despite being brand new on the scene, their strong work ethic has allowed them to play over 65 shows in 6 states since January 2009. Future plans include MORE MUSIC AND MORE TOURING!
