“Angel Miners & The Lightning Riders” is the brainchild of Aaron Bruno, frontman for AWOLNATION. The imagery and mythological storytelling alone on this record could fuel a semester long seminar, so I will not even attempt to get into it here. Their sound straddles many different genres, and is an increasing argument against genre definition in the first place. You will hear passionate hard rock, grungy blues punk, electropop, and even cinematic guitar riffing. After listening, there is no doubt that the mind of Bruno is a breeding ground for masterpiece.
