Perpetual Groove: LiveLoveDie

Perpetual Groove started out as a jamband and is slowly evolving into a more rock oriented outfit. Since they are form Athens, Georgia, rock isn't exactly rock per se. They cut corners unexpectedly, linger on a couple of notes before going out of their heads with a major freak-out groove fest. You can take the rock out of a jamband, but not vice versa.

Their latest studio album LiveLoveDie sounds a bit like Stockholm Syndrome -- a relaxed rhythm section with a distorted guitar and supporting keyboards slowly crawling out of the woodworks. The band members describe their music as a trance arena rock, and that's pretty accurate. They spend more time on the lyrics this time, their forte however is seeing them live in concert. Find out what they will come up with for stand-out track Mayday. It contains spoken word samples, but the music takes care of the angst that is the subject matter of the song.
