Hands Like Houses - Dissonants Album Review


Hands Like Houses are no strangers to writing exceptionally good albums and their latest album Dissonants is no exception. The band, from Canberra, Australia, released a few juicy tracks before the album was even released, but I am, Colour Blind and New Romantics were just a taster of what incredible musicianship was to come. 

Hands Like Houses - Dissonants Album Review

With powerful guitar riffs ripping their way through the album, each track just gets better than the last. Perceptives and Bloodlines are two of the best tracks on the album, and it's almost disappointing when it ends. Like any good album, it leaves you wanting more so it makes you keep playing it over and over again. Disonnants took quite a while to be released but as Trenton Woodley, lead singer of Hands Like Houses, said: "It's better to get it right than to get it done." And this is exactly what they did - and Dissonants is so very right. 

Disonnants mixes the melodic sound of their previous albums Unimagine and Ground Dweller which became such huge hits with their fans, but blend that sound with some of their heaviest music to date. The two sounds are perfectly balanced with one another, creating a combination of music that is hard for any other band to manufacture. Right from the beginning of the album, it's loud and it's powerful. It's almost like a 'hey this is our new sound!' as Trenton Woodley shows off some of his incredible vocal ability. But then Perspectives balances this instantly with a familiar melodic track that is fine tuned into creating one of the best tracks on the album. The flow between old and new has been perfected on Dissonants, and isn't too overwhelming for existing fans of the band.

Download Festival 2015 Review

Despite the torrential rain pouring down during Slipknot's set, they pulled off one of the best shows to date on Friday and set an extremely high standard for the rest of the headliners. Playing hits like 'Psychosocial', 'Devil In I', 'Spit It Out' and 'Custer', and attempting to break the Download record for the most amount of people all jumping up at the same time they certainly went all out. 

Muse were considered to be a controversial band to have booked, but all concerns were quickly dashed as soon as they hit the stage on Saturday. Matt Bellamy's vocal abilities were on top form as the band belted out tracks from their newly released album 'Drones' as well as well-known hits like 'Supermassive Black Hole' and 'Plug In Baby'. Even those who were indifferent or somewhat disliked Muse couldn't deny that they put on the show of a lifetime complete with dancing lights, pyrotechnics, confetti and inflatable balls.
