"LP3", the new album by Philadelphia's own Restorations, is a rare achievement: it doesn't fail at being anything.

It's a collision of influences, not a contrived mixture of them. The band returned to Miner Street Studio and longtime friend/collaborator Jonathan Low for the recording of LP3.

The result is a record that fills a room even when coming out of laptop speakers: every instrument is bigger on this album than on previous efforts, and the vocals often puncture quiet moments to such perfect, unnerving effect that you could believe its happening in your head.

LP3 is a marriage of big sounds and meaty songwriting. Clever, sure, but strong is a better description.

SideOneDummy Records is proud to release Restorations' LP3. Comparable artists: The Constantines, Quicksand, Explosions in the Sky, Desaparecidos, Jets to Brazil
