Rife with sweeping choruses, divinely executed instrumentation and lyrics fraught with modern technological tension, Chicago quintet Antony + the Tramps' sophomore full-length Digital Arms will see a May 5th release worldwide, with a special live album show at Lincoln Hall April 17th. Led by vocalist/guitarist Antony Ablan, the group has been building a substantial following around the Midwest for five years now, anchored by Ablan's charismatic presence and a cohesiveness amongst the remaining members - bassist Ryan Carney, guitarist/vocalist Joseph Messing, drummer Chris Palmerin and keyboardist/woodwind player Kedgrick Pullums Jr. - unparalleled by their D.I.Y. brethren.

Digital Arms was recorded in the band's own studio over the course of a year, with the intent of creating (as Ablan explains) "masculine grooves and feminine melody." They've succeeded, but maybe even more so than they had anticipated: Palmerin's drums echo with mountainous flair; Pullums' dizzing assault of sonic color and brash chops; Carney's thick bass runs and Messing's chaotic guitar lines conjoin to create blissful harmonies and even an occasional gnarly, brave dissonance; and Ablan's vocals run the gamut of being commanding and sensual one minute and courageously naked the next. "Triumphant" is a worthwhile adjective for Digital Arms as a whole, but with a sound this huge and focused, it's a wonder if this group ever had any obstacle they couldn't crush with this bold, brilliant sound. — Jim Hanke
