After having a week to digest the sophomore release of Houston rock band, Waterparks, it’s more apparent than ever that Entertainment is a cutting edge triumph that you should be paying your undivided attention. The articulately modulated confines of resilient petulance in a realm of expository narratives provides a breath of fresh-air in an otherwise stagnant trend-lead era. Vocalist and songwriter Awsten Knight persistently defies stale genre margins by seamlessly mastering every aspect of creative control he can get his hands on. From pitch-shifting vocals and sending them through guitar pedals for additional harmonies in “Peach (Lobotomy)” that echo his own voice as he conveys each part of the story to layering snippets of prismatic synth segments that line the framework with the unique sounds we’ve come to love and expect from a Waterparks release. The live shows to come with this album cycle will be excitedly dynamic displays of much larger guitar compositions and quick-tempered drum accompaniments.
