Mayday is the latest project spearheaded by Ted Stevens. Mr. Stevens is also the leader of the band Lullaby for the Working Class. In addition, he has also spent time playing in other bands...Cursive, Bright Eyes, Azure Ray, Simon Joyner... This fellow is obviously in with the right crowd. Old Blood is an extremely well thought out collection of tunes...subtle in overall approach and effective particularly in terms of melodies and the man's wonderfully subdued vocals. What we like best about the tunes on this album is that they are hard to pinpoint. Coming up with comparisons is difficult indeed, which is usually a sign that there is something truly credible and genuine happening. Mr. Stevens is one of those rare talents who is following his own muse. He isn't trying to sound like anyone else or jump on any trendy bandwagons. This is evident throughout all nine of these heady and introspective tunes. Our favorite track is the unpredictably odd "Tone/Stone/Atonal"...which is best heard, as it would be quite difficult to describe. Unique and yet strangely familiar, this is a wonderfully addictive dose of something from a different angle. (Rating: 5+)
