In 2011, All Get Out, released their debut album entitled The Season, and you know what, it was really quite great. Hailing from South Carolina, the only reason the band was ever on my radar was due to them being signed to Favorite Gentlemen, the record label founded by Manchester Orchestra, so that alone was reason for me to take note.
Anyway, after a relatively quiet period, the band have announced that a second album is on the way at some stage, but until then, a new EP entitled Movement will be released on 14th April to tide us over with some new material. The first song shared from the five track EP is 'Balance', which pretty much continues on the work they were doing on their debut. It's a solid effort, but doesn't excite me as much as some of their older work, such as 'Come And Gone' or 'Me And My Lovers'.
The title track 'Movement' also surfaced online today, and can be streamed over at Brooklyn Vegan. Opening with some high pitched keyboards, I was a little taken aback upon pressing play, but it soon plays out into another decent number, but perhaps lacking some spark for me personally. Also, the comments have drawn comparisons with the hook of the Bad Books (Manchester Orchestra & Kevin Devine's joint project) song 'Don't Move' and now I can't unhear it/also much prefer the Bad Books track.
While it's nothing dramatically new, it's a welcome return for All Get Out who have been away far too long, and I have high hopes for the EP, and more importantly, LP2.
