Canada - Luna Kafé - Full Moon 30 - 03/31/99
Moving Away From the Sun
This is the first record from Toronto's low-profile trio 122 Greige - featuring local names like Matt Robinson, Adam Rosen and Chad Storie - even though
they've been together for 10 years. The record is full
of chiming guitars and deep and droning vocals.
Although it has it's slow points, a lot of the songs
are real winners. The melodies have spunk and the
instrumentation never gets boring. Songs like Every
Game You Play and Six of Seven are very
The only fault I can find with this band is that
songs like Sepia and Gullible are not
terribly original, and it's on these songs that the
off-key vocals begin to briefly lose their charm. But
for the most part, this is a pretty solid disc. The
music is bursting with an unpretentious and pleasant
disposition that is really quite refreshing.
They definitely know what they are doing, and they are
doing it well.
