Calamity a Foot Behind
'Be warned: the music of Blinder is -- lyrically, rhythmically, and melodically -- consistently inconsistent, smart, and unapologetic. It will knock the breath out of you, get your body jumping to and fro in jerky robot motion. It moves all around your head, comes in and out of focus, dances, thrashes, arches, soars, gets spastic, works it's way into your blood. ^#^koven smith on the drums and mason wendell on bass [mason in a superfly Indiana jones hat] drive the rhythm with easy grace, keeping it tight and laying the groundwork for megan wendell to work her magic on guitar and vox.' -customer review (Tasha) 'When Blinder is at their best, they attain a spastic, twisted, slightly manic groove which could best be described as Shudder to Think meets Sleater-Kinney. Wiry and remarkably tight, the best portions of Calamity a Foot Behind occur when Megan Wendell's soaring vocal melodies bounce off the freaky instruments that back her, resulting in a truly awesome sonic assault.' -Matt LeMay (Pitchforkmedia.com) 'Calamity a Foot Behind is delicate and thoughtful. Megan Wendell's voice is strong, supple, melodic and sure. It's a pleasure to listen to her sing in a way that most indie pop artists cannot..' -Splendid ezine.
