Apartment + Shows In Boston This Week

So far, 2007 has been a year of disappointing albums. I had huge hopes for the new Arcade Fire, Modest Mouse and Ted Leo records, but on repeated listens all have fallen flat for me. It's only March, but I was starting to get scared... that is, until a couple of weeks ago when Apartment released their debut album, The Dreamer Evasive. The record is full of hits, the type of pulsing indie rock that gets kids on the dancefloor and keeps them there ("Paid in Full," "My Brother Chris"). But unlike some of the other dance rock bands in the UK right now, Apartment can also do a killer downtempo number showcasing David Caggiari's throaty baritone, subtle phrasing, and utter knack for writing a good melody ("Pressures," "Everyone Says I'm Paranoid"). With a little luck, Apartment will blow up this year.
