Trouble Everyday
On the Way to Disaster

This is just a guess, but I think Trouble Everyday would like a do-over. See, first time around, things were kinda rocky: Their debut, Days vs. Nights, got a 7.7 from Pitchfork, but might've been one post-punk CD too many back in '03. The band landed some decent gigs, like opening for the Yeah Yeah Yeahs on Penn's Landing, and did well with them, but grew frustrated with the local scene and eventually, curiously, publicly, swore off playing their hometown.

Now tempers have cooled, dust has settled and post-punk seems like a silly thing to call a kind of music. It's time to start over with Trouble Everyday, and On the Way to Disaster is a great excuse to get reacquainted. Kyle Costill's swaggering sing-shout does the navigating but guitarist Darren Morze is the driver, swerving aggressively between verse and chorus. When the riffs aren't casual and distant they're grooving and relentless. And everything's tight, tight, tight. "Pedestrian" is a rumbling adrenaline rush with an appropriately dickheaded refrain: "Could you care if you wanted?" The deceptively pessimistic "You Are What You Believe" is similarly caffeinated and catchy, but undermined by a fade-away ending when a strong, screaming finish might have better sealed the deal. Still, it's the sort of catchy, buzzing, sexified rock 'n' roll song you'll probably hear on a Nokia commercial in six months. One of the good ones, I mean. Still, as much as this is our my-bad/bygones reintroduction to Trouble Everyday, it's worth noting that two of Days vs. Nights' most memorable tracks, "Code Word" and the angsty "Written in Snakes," have reemerged here. See, even the bad old days weren't all bad.
