The commuters that make up Bridge And Tunnel are back with the follow-up to 2008’s “East/West”. For this one they teamed up with J Robbins and came out with another winner called “Rebuilding Year”. Opener “Synchronized Swimming” is a six-minute long trip that engulfs every aspect of Bridge And Tunnel’s sound… beautiful, messy, rocking, chaotic, mathy... it’s all present and accounted for. “Outgrowing Pains” shows a faster, grittier side of these guys. And girls! There’s two girls in the band, adding even more variety with their vocal contributions.
If you’re looking for some fine melodic indierock tunes that occasionally bare their teeth, “Rebuilding Year” is not a bad place to start out.
