The Post - In the Event of Tomorrow Review

by Zane Ewton

.
The Post is a band hailing from Bloomington, Indiana. A place that seems to be a far cry from what the band has been compared to on their first two records. The Post is a college rock band that has garnered some decent reviews and comparisons to Talking Heads, Sonic Youth and Joy Division. But recently every band coming from an alternative rock background is being compared to Joy Division.

With their new record In the Event of Tomorrow, The Post leans away from Talking Heads and straight into Radiohead. It seems unfair to only talk about other bands in regards to a new record but In the Event of Tomorrow is so derivative of Radiohead and early Cure that the influence cannot be ignored. It is also hard to listen to, particularly when the original bands have written such outstanding songs.

The Post has the sound but they don't have the songs. The record drones until the instrumental Cure rip-off "Shattered at the Mouthpiece" breaks the monotony. Then the blatant thievery continues with 6 more tracks of dull noise. The vocalist, credited as Oliver, has the Thom Yorke whiny yelp down so well he should lead a tribute band. Actually, The Post may as well be a tribute band.

In the Event of Tomorrow is not a horrible record; the record company paid the money for a quality recording by some competent musicians. But plagiary is definitely frowned upon.
