"For Serious This Time" is a Long Island band





"For Serious This Time" is a Long Island band

Admittedly, these four Long Island lads got a little more mature in their approach over the years. They gained confidence, their sound became clearer, more complex, stepping away from the jam-like confusion of their first two records, but still...there's a certain irony to the name For Serious This Time. Sure, the structures are more elaborate, but serious? They don't really do serious. No more random 'stop&starts' though: now the drums are beating continuously, instead throwing in casual breakdowns, syncopation and rhythmic shifts; the guitar is drifting around carelessly, tickling the tracks with a free-flowing melody, only sketching hints of a hook here and there; at times two voices clash, interrupt one another. That's 'Weird Life' for you, their latest EP to date (released in 2011), a skippy indie-rock six-track record, less erratic than the last, with still something of a punk attitude. Only just getting off the roads, the band ended their summer tour at a fun friendly BYOB bash in East Northport last night- now that's over, time for some new sounds. For serious this time, yeah? - Tracy Mamoun
