I try and listen to any screamo band I come across but Gillian Carter have somehow completely slipped me by until now. Wait.... screamo with a mouth organ?? Really? The spirit of many other bands of this ilk is strong in them; I hear bits of Van Johnson in the vocals. I'm reminded of another band for sure but I can't quite grasp the name. Part are also not greatly different to Capacities. There are some very melodic bits which have a post-rock emphasis but they never venture for too long. Not in The Plague Sermon of Magdelene league anyway. Worth a listen if you too are wondering where all the screamo bands went.
