EDITORS’ NOTES

My Brain Says Stop, But My Heart Says Go! is the latest uplifting release from a group that began as a spinoff from the Christian rap-metal band Thousand Foot Krutch. This time out, FM Static offers such infectious tunes as “(Hey) I Want It,” “F.M.S.T.A.T.I.C.” and the title number with plenty of rousing, all-join-together energy. Singer/guitarist Trevor McNevan is especially good at capturing a nostalgic sense of longing in tracks like “Cinnamon & Lipstick” and “Last Train Home.” The band’s musical attack matches slicing guitar riffs with bubbly melodies and grooves that range from rock to hip-hop in feel. The bratty sarcasm of “U Don’t Know Me Like That” is balanced by the sensitivity of “Black Tattoo” (a look at an abusive relationship) and “Inside Out” (a waltzing love song reminiscent of ’90s-era Edwin McCain). My Brain… overflows with shamelessly catchy hooks and chant-along choruses, but beyond its bounce and fizz is a positive, Spirit-grounded message as well.

TFK FM Static

My favorite band is both of them. Anything Trevor does blows me away. He's got an ear for understanding how to make good music, while not sacrificing his religious beliefs. No band captures those two elements the way TFK and FM Static do. This is definitely one of my favorite albums of theirs. I just wonder when the FM Static album that goes with "The End" will come out? I think Trevor is more of a musical genius than John Lennon. And trust me, I have plenty of respect for The Beatles, don't get me wrong. But awesome job, FM Static! Anxiously awaiting your next album!
