Cope Park

Producer (group): Vagrant; Status: In Season

On the surface, indie rockers Audio Learning Center seem to be a departure for Vagrant, the Motown of bleeding-heart emo acts like Dashboard Confessional. But between its choked-cat vocals and lines like ”lacerate these heartstrings,” Cope is simply another mope session. ”California,” which offers death-march drums, shows some spine, but mostly the CD offers thick guitars and hooks that slide off like a used Band-Aid.
