Ever see that scene in a film where the actor is listening to a song and because the song is so god damn good they turn it up and just dance recklessly around their room? Yes, well I did exactly that and it immediately brightened up my day. What song did you totally lose your cool and rock out to may you ask? It was “4th and Roebling” by The Districts. The first track on their latest album “A Flourish and a Spoil”.

Originating from Pennsylvania, The Districts have toured the US, UK and Europe including a memorable set at SXSW in 2014 creating a long awaited buzz for the band. Now in 2015 presenting their second album “A Flourish and a Spoil” there’s no doubt the buzz is fading away anytime soon, as this album is just Indie- Rock perfection!

With the first two tracks “4th and Roebling” and “Peaches” being awesome feel good Indie hits, the album portrays an uplifting sensation. However, lowering the mood with mellow tracks such as “Sing the Song” and the ever so honest and scratchy “6AM”, the album ultimately expresses a blend of emotions but still grasps on to the hope of that easy going happiness it commenced with.

The Districts produce an Indie Rock sound, heavily influenced by Blues Rock but don’t doubt them to be like any other average Indie Rock band; I feel The Districts have more content and connection within their songs particularly shown through the range of “6AM” and “Young Blood”.

Though “A Flourish and a Spoil” is released in cold February it will definitely brighten up your day with its warmth and feel good impression which will get you ready for the summer where this album will be brought alive.
