Chris Walla

Artist: Chris Walla

Album: Field Manual

Label: Barsuk

Genre: Rock, indie rock

Comments: Chris Walla is best known for his role as producer and guitarist for Death Cab for Cutie. This solo project certainly carries over much of the Death Cab Sound (tracks 1 and 5) but also looses some of the airiness adds some punchier guitars (tracks 3 and 9). There are moments that are almost too cute, in a Rogue Wave sort-of way, but overall this is catchy bunch of tracks.
