We Recommend - Falling Up, 'Captiva'

What does Nevertheless, Capital Lights, Delirious?, and Peter Furler all have in common? They all exited the music scene in 2009. However, while all of those losses were significant, the news that Falling Up (one of my most favorite bands) had disbanded was truly demoralizing. Their all-time best album will always be disputed because of their various style shifts over the course of their career. While Crashings appealed to more generic rock lovers, and Fangs certainly pleased fans of experimental concept albums, arguably their most balanced act was Captiva. The well-polished sound was a near perfect union of Dawn Escapes' edgy alternative music and Exit Lights' diverse, ambient sound. Although mysterious, Falling Up beautifully weaved spiritual themes into Captiva's lyrics to appeal to a larger demographic. While Crashings might have been the most accessible Falling Up album, those newly interested in looking back at the band's history should start with Captiva. - Nathaniel Schexnayder
