Saturday, Dec. 17: Really Old Airplanes

The Den @ urbanXchange

By Rev. Adam McKinney on December 14, 2011

After the band's first EP, Really Old Airplanes started to refine its sound. On the debut LP, there are elements of European folk, straight-ahead indie pop and occasional flairs of power pop. All of these elements are imbued with a warmth and clear intent, which creates an album of delicately anthemic songs. The vocals are not flawless, but gentle and restrained, and the harmonies are similarly glowing and subtle.
