Manchester Orchestra – Cope

Manchester Orchestra’s Cope is forty minutes of heavy, unapologetically indie rock. The album was self-produced in the band’s newly completed home studio, giving the group a lot of freedom with their sound. Singer and songwriter Andy Hull wanted the band’s fourth studio LP to be heavier than their previous efforts, and it shows in Cope. While not necessarily being the heaviest album you’ll ever hear, Cope deals with deep lyrical themes and backs it all up with drowning guitar fuzz and swelling chorus buildups. If you’re looking for the new trend in loud alt-rock with indie cues, Manchester Orchestra is the band that will deliver, and Cope is sure to make an impact on the genre. -Michael Naples
