Farmertan debuts second act of sonic play "Muse of Fire"

Connecticut outfit Farmertan returns with the second act of its sonic play Muse of Fire, which enters a new chapter revved up and hot for noise. While the first act surely had its gritty rock moments, this second act kicks off with tracks like “Man of the Hour,” which sprints across its nearly four minutes of lingering-distorted chords, spirited drum fills, and oh-so subtle bassline with the velocity alternative rock demands. “The Storm” slows down some but is still powered by fuzzy guitar riffs and reverberated vocals that match the characteristics of the music; the guitar solo in the track is killer. “After” is the most melodic of the songs, gritty and fueled up still but with a cool strut to it that closes the act splendidly. Overall this continuation makes evident that this sonic play is well underway and that the last act is worth sticking around for; stream the second act below for a solid Tuesday playlist. - Rene Cobar
