*Sixeyes Score: 7.8 out of 10
Division Day's second EP, The Mean Way In, will give indie friendly ears a rich meal to dine upon and a sound so vibrant it very nearly casts it's own light. The California band's least elaborate piano driven moments recall Ben Folds at his most complex and all of this is thrown from your speakers all the way from San Francisco analog studio, Tiny Telephone.
The 6 songs that make up The Mean Way In alternate between dense and intricate, it's a fine line between the two, but both demand the listener grant the music repeated listens... and that's when the payoff comes. You become the water or the sponge. The music gets inside you, or you get inside it.
+ bad black moon
+ there is no telling
