"Travis Morrison/Battles/Beauty Pill/The Same"

TRAVIS MORRISON/BATTLES/BEAUTY PILL/THE SAME I've seen former Dismemberment Plan frontman Travis Morrison twice since the release of his confusing, disappointing solo debut Travistan, and I still can't figure out exactly what's going on there. However, if you like your entertainment quirky, unrestrained and deceptively guileless, you'll probably dig it. Battles is a fairly new experimental post-rock group featuring former and current members of prog darlings Don Caballero and Tomahawk; they've been dropping disconcerting EPs like lepers drop fingers, and producing some killer, eerily biomechanical music along the way. Structurally unstable Dischord Records act Beauty Pill careens from extremely interesting to really, really bad along the course of their latest, The Unsustainable Lifestyle, and for some reason, I'm currently digging the shit out of local act The Same's noisy, volatile, badly sung and quasi-danceable new Tic-Tac-Toe.

Feeling a bit camera shy


The Same formed in Tampa Bay, FL and began making music in early December 2003. They have consistently shocked and astounded audiences show after show since then, with an eclectic combination of incredible guitar riffs, driving indie tunes, flooring drums and heavy bass, and anything else they can possibly throw at the audience. The Same's sound has changed over the years and has now become something that everyone will say is called sludgy stoner-pop-rock. The Same began to win fans of not only many Tampa Bay area scenesters and music enthusiasts, but also countless people across the U.S., thanks to their 2005 and 2006 nation wide summer tours, and their winter tour throughout Florida. The Same consists of Ryan Metcalf (guitar/vocals) and Brian Schanck (bass), Chase Leonard (drums). In spring of 2005 they released their new EP entitled, �Present Time has Past�. Since the EP's release they have played with many exciting and prominent acts such as: TORCHE, Rahim, An Albatross, Medications, Mary Timony, Travis Morrison (ex- D Plan), Battles, Wires on Fire, Action Action, Houston Calls, Hellogoodbye,and Discover America. The Same is guaranteed to turn heads and refresh audiences world wide when given the opportunity.
