MAGNET SCHOOL
TONIGHT WE DRINK...TOMORROW WE BATTLE THE EVENING AT HAND
ARCLIGHT

Heavily steeped in the indie rock of the '90s, the Austin-based quartet Magnet School's debut 10-track offering echo the sentiments of the era's most beloved unsung bands who, despite barely recognized by the mainstream at the time, are very much emulated today. From the dense swirls of guitars on "Angeldust" to the post-hardcore gaze cast by "Sweetheart in German", this outfit adamantly stakes its claim to merge Foo Fighters, Swervedriver, and Hum into a massive beast with block rocking arena rock drums and slightly psychedelic leanings peeking through catchy refrains and contagious hooks. With a prolific arsenal of rock music comprehension in tow this act whips up a batch of smartly dressed yet refreshingly jagged tunes where the deliberately delectable feedback and dynamic yet somber overtones reign supreme .
