Parts Per Million - Stop Motion
Parts Per Million
Who would think that Craigslist could help in the forming of a band, but that's how this Chicago-based alt rock band met? They've only been together for a couple years, but consistent in the local circuit as far as playing out.
Musically, there's little new to nosh on. Equal parts hook-laden, piano/violin, and melodic waxing, PPM takes the refined alternative radio format and plays it safe. A fluid listen throughout, Stop Motion is formulaic, but pulls the listener in if only to turn the radio up a little louder.
