Let's Get Simplified Let's Get Simplified CD (2007)

Beaten Awake music CDs Beaten Awake's downtrodden, low-key indie rock has the whiff of something simultaneously rural and esoteric about it. Humble guitar figures are often worried out in a tentative, Gray Album-era Velvet Underground fashion. The voices have a bit of a creak to them, and the lyrics continually suggest a kind of congenital sadness and wonderment. (Idaho seems to be a clear predecessor, whether intentional or not.) Even when the band works itself up into lather, as on the pounding groove of "Goin' Nowhere," there is something touchingly morose pulling things down around the edges. Beaten Awake's Let's Get Simplified is true "indie rock" in the sense of having an utterly original and appealing aesthetic -- and with the full understanding that the term itself has come to mean something figurative and not literal (e.g., Modest Mouse remaining "indie rock" while signed to Capitol Records and topping the Billboard charts). The Ohio band hits high points here with the wistful, breezy, and pretty "Brownstone"; the soulful, dirge-like "Ghost Bought a Bicycle"; and the ominous, snaking "Tiger's Tale." This is an original, unusual, and melodic album, packed with wonderfully downplayed guitar accents and haunting lyrical intimations. ~ Erik Hage Recording information: Eagle's Nest (04/2006); The Eagle's Nest (04/2006). Beaten Awake: Ryan Brannon, Jon Finley, Joel McAdams, Allen Karpinski. Personnel: Gabe Schray (trumpet).

Beaten Awake discography Joel McAdams of Beaten Awake has confessed to being a big Lou Barlow fan, and on the group's third album, Thunder$troke, it sounds as if the student has come within spitting distance of surpassing the teacher. Thunder$troke is that modern rarity, an honest-to-Pete indie rock album that embraces the moody pleasures of the golden age of Sebadoh and their kin while revealing just enough melodic tricks of their own that Beaten Awake sound like peers rather than followers. Beaten Awake don't wear their heart on their collective sleeve, and the meanings of their songs are more felt than clearly stated, but principal songwriters McAdams and Jon Finley can write melodies eloquent enough to tell interesting stories even without help from the vocals, and it's the simple, determined ebb and flow of the tunes that makes Thunder$troke work. The guitar work on songs like "Suite Cheetah" and "Gyro Quake" give the songs texture and propulsive energy, while the undertow of keyboards lends body and shading without getting in the way. The woozy but somehow sure-footed waltz of "I'm Not Asking for the Moon" is elegant while conjuring a very real sense of menace. And if the rhythm section doesn't go out of its way to call attention to itself, it sure knows how to keep the band locked in place while giving the music just enough room to groove. Back in the early '90s, Beaten Awake would have sounded like the next big hipster ...
