Hotel Rooms and Heart Attacks
Label: The Swear
This is goth in the Evanescence/Flyleaf suburban-mall sense: first three song titles are "Vampire" (speeded-up-girl-doing-Geddy Lee prog-punk), "Shuttered Off Christine" (foreboding but banging, with its action apparently taking place somewhere abandoned, "past the factory line") and "Some Graves Are Stolen." Those all sound sufficiently Hot Topic/Twilight, right? "History of Cinema" (apparently about movies and drugs) and "The City That Never" (apparently about playing music in N.Y.C.'s East Village) suggest kids from the boonies yearning to mess around in a mysteriously Bohemian way.
