Riding the current wave set forth by Thursday and The Used, Spitalfield is a Chicago based outfit whose debut 10-track release has all of the super sounds that whip the kids into a frenzy these days. For starters, REMEMBER RIGHT NOW features an emotive singer with a heartfelt and sincere whine about him, a band that sings back up just as sincere, yet still manages to rock out, and songs that emit drama, clever wordplay, and combine melodic interludes with an indie rock sensibility. Basically, Spitalfield sounds a lot like everything else on the post-punk/emo circuit, so unless you haven't heard of The Movielife or the countless other groups, it's all new to you.
