  1. Calla deal in that dark romantic narcissism guys like Nick Cave and Tom Waits are known to wallow in on record after record.
  2. You could say Strength in Numbers is all bark and no bite, except there's not any bark either.

    These guys are the kings of meloncholic rock and their latest installment is refreshing. As if all their albums are stories of hurt, loss, These guys are the kings of meloncholic rock and their latest installment is refreshing. As if all their albums are stories of hurt, loss, trial & error and eventual self denigration this stuff is great for people with broken hearts or menden hearts who wish to look back and see where thay have come from. "...I put in all this effort..." Not too depressing though and often quite inspirational, Calla pull this new album off with riffs that stick in your mind for days and days and days and days...well worth checking them out.
