Artist Of The Day: Again For The Win
Again, For The Win last released an album in 2010, and they have come far since then. Their latest single, "The Legend Of" (exclusively premiered here on MuzikDizcovery), showcased a poppier side of the band, but that definitely does not reflect on the rest of the album. Electronics are much more widely used than before, as well as shoegazey guitar, but the band's 90's emo influenced aggressive indie rock is still prominent throughout the album. The band experiments much more than they did on Bonus Deluxe Edition, as many songs sound nothing like any Again, For The Win material released until now. "Breaking & Entering," "Having Heard Sirens," and "Architects" are the immediate standouts, but the entire record is fantastic.
