Artist of the Day: Weatherbox

San Diego's Weatherbox is one of the most underrated outfits in all of current music. The brainchild of vocalist/guitarist Brian Warren has undergone multitude of lineup changes over the bands six-plus year career, but they remain just as brash and innovative since their debut album, American Art. Weatherbox plays a style of alternative/indie rock that is angular and jutting. Guitars are crisp, yet distorted, while Warren's voice has a distinct tinge to it. Often reminiscent of early Modest Mouse, Warren's words are thought provoking and cryptic. The music that backs him up is just as unique, with almost progressive aspects to it. Fans of early Say Anything and At The Drive-In will find Weatherbox to be an interesting cocktail with a new twist.

The band has only two albums and a handful of EPs under their belt, but a new release is planned for sometime next year, as they have just recently signed to Triple Crown Records. Keep your ears open for that, as it should be as immensely golden as all of Weatherbox's back catalogue.
