A show to honor the life of our good friend Jeff Thompson.
“As For You describes itself as “a breath of fresh air” and, after listening to “The Process of Separation,” I’m not inclined to argue all that hard. The thing that makes the album so interesting is As For You’s ability to change pace while maintaining a cohesive sound. Front man Josh Baumunk’s vocals shine throughout the album, as the band’s sound swings from more melodic tracks like “Let Me Be” and “Inside,” to much harder fare like “All to Hell.” It’s difficult to point at any one aspect of the band’s sound and say “this is what makes it work,” and that’s a testament to As For You’s overall polish and ability. Bassist Harpo Dunaway and drummer Brian Ickowitz make for a top-notch rhythm section, and the guitar work of Harold Waits and Jeremiah Johnson round out a beautifully realized sound.
