FEATURED SONG: Onward, Soldiers – “Cinder Blocks”

Onward, Soldiers

Onward, Soldiers! There's music to be conquered.

“Darling, Cinder Block eyes, you put me in a coma,” Sean Thomas Gerard sings, delving into a dream he had about Medusa. The track which resulted from said dream is the perfect introduction to this Wilmington, North Carolina band, which revels in a blend of alt-folk and rock which is akin to combining the tunefulness of a band like Gin Blossoms and throwing it into a blender with Will Hoge, Ryan Adams and Wilco. Even then, the end product stands out as something truly stamped with their own experiences, a perfect example of building on your influences to then go off in your own direction.

If you enjoyed the Hoots and Hellmouth song I posted this morning, you’ll absolutely love “Cinder Blocks.” Which means their latest album, Monsters, should be required listening. Regardless of how long you listen, the music most certainly will not put you in a coma. This is music you shout about from the rooftops … or at least you should.
