Faces On Film's debut, The Troubles, was one of my favorite albums of 2008. Now, two years later the band is back with follow-up Some Weather. Where The Troubles recalled Modest Mouse at times, but mostly explored the darker side of indie-folk, the new record adds reverb and loud/quiet dynamics, creating truly epic songs that remind me at times of classic My Morning Jacket and The Walkmen. Smart arrangements give the songs room to breathe, but add unique touches - sleigh bells pop up often, rich piano and organ compliment acoustic and electric guitars. Still, the focus of these songs is Mike Fiore's personal lyrics which soar above the music, painting vivid scenes and memorable melodies. With two beautiful records under their belts, Faces on Film are a band that deserve to be heard and loved by a national audience - hopefully it's just a matter of time.
