The Reunion Show – Kill Your Television

Best Alternative Album

The following was originally published in our Review section. 

Review by antiGUY

The Reunion Show have hit upon a winning formula with their full length debut “Kill Your Television.” That formula is an effective mix of 80’s new wave and modern alt-pop. A sound that borders on what some call punk-pop, but before go screaming off proclaiming, “I hate punk-pop!”, read on because you won’t mistake The Reunion Show for the likes of Sum 41! 

Think Weezer meets Elvis Costello meets “London Calling” era Clash meets The Romantics meets The Cars meets Jimmy Eat World. So it’s classic new wave mixed with present day alt-pop, all done in prime fashion. You don’t get the lame nasal tinged vocals or weak guitars of the mainstream punk-pop bands, instead you get a great collections of songs that aren’t afraid to breakout of a restraining formula and actually rock and deliver unforgettable melodies that follows more in the pattern of Weezer than Green Day but still has more of a punk edge. The vocals are more in the true tradition of punk and new wave on most songs and then fall into Weezer territory on others. The music itself has a mix of punk, new wave keyboards and modern alt-pop riffing. In other words, it’s a grab bag of sound that could have easily missed it’s mark but fortunately for The Reunion Show and fans it hit on all cylinders. 

Mixings different styles of music together to come up with a unique sound is a difficult task, even for the most accomplished musicians, but The Reunion Show make it seem so effortless. This is a great disc from beginning to end that should have a wide appeal.  This is definitely a band to check out and keep an eye on!
