Young Blood 10. 6 AM Whether they’re tearing it up in a basement, rocking a festival crowd or hard at work in a studio, The Districts are a band that exists in the moment. The Pennsylvania four-piece channels its long-forged bonds into visceral, explosive rock and roll. You’ll hear hints of Americana, moments of the blues and folk, but written into songs so expressive that those labels are transcended .
The Districts’ appeal lies in how you can call them a "rock band" and have a typically vague term mean something specific. Or, maybe, they’re a throwback to the last time "rock band" meant something. All four members are under 21 years old and they play bar-friendly rawk with the irreverence and impatience of kids who still have to get drunk in the parking lot, replacing the classic rock and blues with mannish-boy punk vigor. They're hardly the only ones who fit this description, but the Districts have significant advantages over their contemporaries. For one thing, they leave something to the imagination.

A great album that deserves a little more recognition. Just give a listen to Young Blood if you want to get a feel for it, or if you like The Strokes it should be right up your alley. The pressing is quite decent with medium to low surface noise with just a few pops that Im sure are just static from my copy. The album is distorted sounding by stylistic choice, specifically in the vocals and the sound is tailored perfectly to blend with that style while still keeping it detailed and clear in the soundstage. The mids are thankfully present as well but the bottom end bass seems a little too thinned out to my liking.

A Flourish and a Spoil. LP - Fat Possum Records 14978). Featuring new guitarist Pat Cassidy (founding member Mark Larson left the band for college) and production by John Congleton, the Districts' second album reins in the jammy aspects of their music somewhat, giving their fury and poetry a little more form. The new songs on their self-titled EP hinted at this direction, but it feels more natural here. A Flourish and a Spoil's best moments sound refined instead of confined, and still leave plenty of room for their buildups and breakdowns.
But the truth is, A Flourish And A Spoil would be a great album whether these guys were 20 or 50. After bursting on to the scene with this video of Funeral Beds and a banner SXSW 2014, the boys put off college and signed to Fat Possum. With lofty expectations, they hit the studio with John Congleton who did a great job of capturing the real angst of growing up in a small town with production that is both raw and brash. This isn’t some made for MTV bullshit angst. I got kids closer to their age and even I can relate to lead singer, Rob Grote’s lyrics. Funeral Beds put The Districts on the map. A Flourish And A Spoil planted a big fucking flag on the map announcing that they were here to stay. Follow me on Twitter at yHearYa. The Districts are here.
