All Get Out, 2011

Charleston band All Get Out’s debut full-length album, The Season, hits stores on Tuesday, but in the meantime, you can stream the whole thing at
Singer Nathan Hussey, who has described the band’s style as “loud and personal,” keeps his signature whining twang on the new recording, interspersed with some tender falsetto moments and rasping, hollered choruses. And the band sounds tighter than ever, with a light pop polish courtesy of producer Matt Malpass (Lydia, Copeland). The third track, “Lucky Bastard,” explores the perennial All Get Out themes of heartache, religion, and life on the road while building to a haggard anthem for the homesick traveler.

On a first listen, other standout tracks include “Subject to Change,” which somehow manages to wring a lot of emotion out of the lines “So give me your wallet / I need your money,” and the spine-tingling “Let Me Go,” which relates an intensely personal story with alternating sparse verses and hard-driving choruses.

The band hasn’t announced any Charleston tour dates yet, but be sure to wear earplugs when they come around. Because they’re loud as ... well, you know.
