HART­FORD HEARTBREAKERS PROVE THEM­SELVES JUST AS EMO AS YOU’D THINK

■ DROP­PING THREE al­bums in as many years, Sorority Noise sure love wal­low­ing in their own bit­ter­sweet melan­choly. But they might just love mar­i­nat­ing in other bands’ even more. From the arch in­tel­li­gence of The Front Bot­toms’ play­ful self-dep­re­ca­tion to the shrug-shoul­dered melody of Mod­ern Base­ball, You’re Not As… finds the Con­necti­cut quar­tet nod­ding hard to a whole host of he­roes.there’s still a bright-burn­ing sense of self-be­lief, mind. Min­ing a darker lyri­cal vein, in­di­vid­u­al­ist themes of be­reave­ment and iso­la­tion seep through, from the creep­ing re­gret of First Let­ter From St. Sean to the surg­ing cathar­sis of Dis­ap­peared. It’s a beau­ti­ful, bruised patch­work: all frag­ile op­ti­mism and ebbing re­gret. DOWN­LOAD: No Halo. FOR FANS OF: Mod­ern Base­ball, Moose Blood,the Front Bot­toms. SAM LAW
