DUKES OF HILLSBOROUGH / THE MERCURY LEAGUE:
Split:
Itís always tough being a reviewer who goes out to shows and likes bands, not a disconnected critic searching for a ďbrilliantĒ stab at a band. Itís double-tough for bands that Iím ambivalent to. I think that Travis Duke is one of the nicest, more forthright people Iíve met. And it pains me that Iím not a huge fan of the Dukes. To me, something sounds buried underneath the burlap with their songs; like theyíre covering up structures more interesting, more formed. There are traces of Tiltwheel-like expansion and glimpses of lyrical breakthroughs in their songs and I donít find them onerous or anything. Theyíre just not my thing when they should be. I just donít get that excited about their music and it pains me to say that. Damn. This sounds like an unrequited love letter or something. The Mercury League: I have to credit Daryl for the term ďpost-Epitaph hardcore.Ē Since melodicore isnít filling stadiums, bands that wouldíve fit that genre to a tee in the mid-í90s are looking for a slightly different way to go about things. They come across as a band suffering a post-Hot Water Music malaise propelled by latter-day Stung Out guitaring on top, and itís just not grabbing me. I feel like a dick. –Todd Taylor (Accident Prone)
