PropertyOfZack is continuing a new string of Playlist features from individual team members to highlight specific feelings or desires. Next up is titled Album Minus Band by Marie Scarsella.

Check out our Playlist, let us know what your favorite songs on it are, and listen to these songs on Spotify while reading along below!

Ever wonder what your favorite musicians are doing when they’re not fronting your favorite bands? Writing more material, of course! This playlist is comprised entirely of solo projects/side projects of my personal favorite bands. While the playlist’s title may be a nod to Jeff Rosenstock’s time with Bomb the Music Industry!, all of these artists still manage to shine without the band they’re most known for behind them. Take a listen and see for yourself – you may even enjoy some of these guys (or gals!) on their own.

POZ Review: Prawn - Kingfisher

by Zack Zarrillo - Aug 22, 2014

by Zac Lomas, edited by Erik van Rheenen

Some things are so aesthetically pleasing they can only be consumed in small quantities over long periods of time for fear of overloading one’s senses and reaching a state of shock.  For example, there’s a reason I tend to reserve eating chocolate mousse pie only around my birthday – if I were to gorge myself on its rich and heavenly textures I would reach a comatose state in little over a week.  New Jersey emo all-stars Prawn and their latest LP, Kingfisher, are a perfect representation of this phenomenon; there is only so much perfectly crafted and richly produced emo music my brain can handle before it implodes upon itself.

Prawn have been quietly tossing pebbles into the pond that is the recent Emo Revival, creating subtle ripples here and there, but Kingfisher is no pebble.  Rather, Kingfisher is the boulder shooting out waves in every direction, and the album appropriately begins with “Scud Running,” whose nautical metaphors seem to be a staple in the wheelhouse of guitarist/vocalist Tony Clark.  Clark cuts to the bone with lyrics such as: “The sails are slashed, we’re fucked for sure.  I’m waiting for the breakers.  If there’s a light from that beacon I can count the distance in this thick hazy pea soup fog,” whose distinct imagery provide a haunting and vivid portrayal of love on the rocks.

However, Prawn’s strengths do not lie simply in Clark’s poetic virtuoso, but also in the musical aptitude of him and his bandmates.  Prawn is a group where every member could easily shine as the star of a common band and Kingfisher highlights these diverse, yet concerted talents, to a T.  From the sparkling guitar-work of Clark and Andrew Vilchez on “Dialect Of” that shoots out of speakers and into headphones like moonbeams on a foggy spring night, to Jamie Houghton’s immaculate drum beats on both “Glass, Irony” and “Runner’s Body,” Kingfisher is a true musician’s album.
