Dayayayayay 263: Dananananaykroyd – There Is A Way

18 Nov

Muscle Memory

Let’s get you all caught up.  I listened to Dananananaykroyd’s first record when The Swole was in its infancy, loved it (the album), and proceeded to forget about it. That’s been the story with quite a few records over the past 263 days, unfortunately, but I guess that’s bound to happen with a project like this.  I cared enough to give the band a “like” on Facebook, though, which meant that I heard all about the release of this particular record through numerous status updates.  That was way back in June.  Then the band announced that they would be breaking up after a final European tour.  I think that was back in September.  Now, it’s November, and I need a record to listen to.

I’m actually a bit saddened by the fact that I’ll never be able to see these guys live.  A quick YouTube search of their shows leads me to believe that they were extremely fun (i.e. plenty of moshing, but not with people that look like they want to end a few lives).  That’s what this type of music is going to lead to—it’s indie pop/rock with some hardcore elements—and I really wish that there were more of it in existence. There are a few breakdowns and a bit of screaming, which blends surprisingly well with the often-joyous vibe given off by the band’s lyrics.

Believe me, had these guys ever embarked on a U.S. tour, I most definitely would have attended a show.  Maybe they’ll reform one day.  Or maybe they’ve decided that they have had enough of that ridiculous name, and will be reforming under a better one next week.
