"Album Review"

Welcome the ghost is a story of two lovers who meet their demise when they realize they can't live without one another. Normally I hate CD's based off of stories, but Darling does a very good job with Welcome the ghost.

The vocals through most of the CD are great, there are a few slower and malodic songs that didn't do anything for me, but there are defentically very promising songs that I would love to hear live if they came to Minneapolis. At first the guys voice is much like that of early FUGAZI's front man Ian Mac Kaye. But don't think the band is a FUGAZI rip-off at all. The band has a more pop punk speed and sound, but also very maladoic. Bad Connection (track 5) and Welcoming the ghost (track 8) are pretty bad ass. 2 of the faster songs on the CD.

Check this CD out, you can hear Welcome the ghost on their website www.darlinglittlesongs.com, as well as check out their upcoming shows and tours. - TruePunk.com

"Editor's Pick"

Frenetic pop-punk guitars and vocals collide head-on with progressive jazzy overtures of indie rock. Indiana-based Darling likes to keep the audience guessing as to what they have up their sleeves next; you never know if it’s going to be some amazing vocal melody or a discordant post-punk harmony. Somehow, someway I hear a bit of Cursive and the Get Up Kids influencing many of the songs that bejewel “Welcome the Ghost”. It’s sure to be a classic underground hit, so you better catch on while you still can!
