1 - CITY LIGHT CHIEF - LAVIIN - (CD) 
MIDSUMMER


On their debut, CITY LIGHT THIEF present a clever mixture of Indie, Punk, Pop, and Post-Core. Rarely are you going to hear just one voice on this one - "Laviin" (which, fittingly, is Estonian for "avalanche") has lots and lots of choirs that keep dueling, branching, coalescing. The ten compositions on "Laviin" make you forget that you are actually listening to a very young band (and one from Germany, of all places!). "Laviin" is wild, "Laviin" is loud, "Laviin" is quiet, "Laviin" is emotional, and above all, it is one-of-a-kind. At some points you might be reminded of old TAKING BACK SUNDAY. Other, more playful and/or chaotic parts may evoke comparisons to FALL OF TROY or even AT THE DRIVE-IN, while the pop-appeal could be blamed on MINUS THE BEAR...or maybe someone listened to TRIP FONTAINE for too long? We don't know for sure. What we do know, however, is that "Laviin" proves to be a very special record for both the band and the label - and hopefully for you as well."

2 - CITY LIGHT CHIEF - VACILANDO - (CD) 
MIDSUMMER


CITY LIGHT THIEF demonstrate their versatility and energy in consistent, streamlined tunes. Under a veil of pop melodies and catchiness lies a highly complex meshwork of what sounds like a myriad of instruments and voices. What is most remarkable in this respect is that the details never take away from the whole but only stand out when examined. The choirs, a long-standing feature of the Thieves' cosmos, are more powerful than ever, thanks to the addition of Mario (formerly of the now-defunct THOUGHTS PAINT THE SKY) as a sixth band member. Even with a staggering amount of ideas thrown in, the songs on "Vacilando" are always compact and coherent and keep exciting the listener on album length without wearing them out. On their second full length, CITY LIGHT THIEF still sound like hyperventilation and mischief, like euphoria and barely containable chaos - only better than ever.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Battue 02. Of Armistice 03. Bones 04. Panica 05. Portland, Maine 06. In Full Swing 07. Helicopter Youth 08. Makel 09. Travelogue 10. Omori 11. Clodburst~torrent
