The Station Myth

Rock - Alternative

An album's cover says a lot- like dipping your toe in the pool to see if it's just right to jump in. When you look at the cover of The Station Myth's self titled album, it is just like that. It's misty mountains, forboding clouds and dark atmosphere perfectly predict the music that lies within: it's dark, beautiful and haunting, all at the same time. New York City's own The Station Myth oddly enough are a 'Band of Dans'. That's right, all four of them are named Daniel. There must be some weird kind of karma around this group. To think four guys named Dan, are all friends, into the same music, and play the right instruments to start a band. How weird is that? Vocalist Daniel Ryan has sort of a monotone voice, but with a power behind it, much like Ian Curtis of Joy Divison or Sam Endicott of The Bravery. But the 'Dans crew' is a little bit more cheery and eager to rock out than Joy Division ever was. There are two sides to this band. They can create dark and simplistic music such as "On The Mountain" and "There Was A Hurricane", which is only backed by a piano, and then have no fear of showing off musically by incorporating electronic drums(Digger) and samples(The Man who Pleased) plus a dash of guitar heroics(Sentences and Paragraphs). Each style they manage well. In fact, the album sounds very much like the early New Order album, Movement, where New Order is trying to reconcile the old ays of Joy Division and become their own entity. Somehow these two polar opposites seem to work perfectly together. It is fitting as background music after a long night of drinking, but it also stands the test of time the next day when your haze clears. Kudos again for the great artwork.
