NYC Power-trio The 101's latest, Green Street, marks the band’s first release for the Limekiln Records imprint and a passionate follow up to 2004’s critically-acclaimed debut ep (eponymous, Self-Starter Foundation). With Green Street, Eric Richter continues to define The 101’s infectiously catchy sound, combining the finely honed atmospheric touch of his previous band Antarctica, with the emotive drive of his Christie Front Drive years, to create a well-crafted rock album with no end to its emotional depth or sense of tasteful simplicity. The album shifts easily from the excitement and yearning of tracks like “Never In” to the frustration of “Fucked Up Job,” all the while maintaining an anthemic pop drive suited as well to quiet reflection as cathartic release. This is certainly the long player that fans of The 101, not to mention devotees of Christie Front Drive and Antarctica, have hoped for. Richter’s writing here recalls the burning modern rock sound of Jimmy Eat World (who as one-time label-mates shared a split 7’’ with Christie Front Drive) and the introspection of early REM. For those out there who like rock served with pop hooks, buzzing with heady energy, intelligence, and real emotional depth, prepare to swoon to the sounds of The 101’s Green Street.
