Into It. Over It.
Into It. Over It.
"Erudite, gregarious, well-connected, and extremely savvy" - Pitchfork

“[Into It. Over It.] takes cues from early Death Cab For Cutie and the Promise Ring , as verbose, melodically winding acoustic guitars lead while more distorted parts add texture.” - Pitchfork

“Intersections finds Weiss strengthening the connection between the various endpoints he’s explored over his career, and with the help of producer Brian Deck, he’s never seemed this self-assured.” - The Onion AV Club

“The result is just familiar enough to be referential without becoming derivative—Weiss’ deft, rambling fingerpicked patterns bear a strong influence of Mike Kinsella’s Owen, though IIOI is far more melodic and compact. In his softer vocal register, there’s a boyish and bookish cloaking of mean-spirited sentiments that recalls Ben Gibbard.” -Pitchfork

“Weiss has matured quite a bit during the past six years, and Intersections proves it—he keeps finding new ways to express himself within an idiom that’s already been declared dead several times.” - Chicago Reader

“Weiss’s singing is assured and graceful, and with a gentle sigh or clean cry that doesn’t quite disintegrate into a ragged scream, he can summon the anguish of a tortuous relationship (“A Curse Worth Believing”) or grief at the death of a friend.” -Chicago Reader

“Critics are finally recognizing his talents as a songwriter.” - Baltimore Sun

“A mature and grounded mix of indie rock and emo that hits teenagers just as hard as it does the twenty somethings. It operates beautifully in an area that Death Cab For Cutie perfected and left behind almost a decade ago” - Buzzfeed
The World is a Beautiful Place & I am No Longer Afraid to Die
Connecticut-based band The World is a Beautiful Place & I am No Longer Afraid to Die has a new album Harmlessness available now. It is the band's second album and first with Epitaph.

If Harmlessness marks a new milestone for the band, and its foremost artistic achievement, it's also an album that spends time pondering the years that The World Is A Beautiful Place has spent finding its place. The title itself is a play on the band's first release, a gesture inspired by the return of founding member Tyler Bussey. Yet Derrick Shanholtzer-Dvorak also sees "Harmlessness" as a state to be achieved, an ethos that fits with all the open spirit of being "formless". In Shanholtzer-Dvorak's words, the goal is "to exist in harmlessness, doing no harm to those around you." It's a fitting idea for an album this devoted to beauty and humanity, and the search to find one in the other.

The group create their dense textured sound with multi-layered and heavily effected guitars as well as synthesizer, cello, and trumpet. In their idealistic maximalist world, more of everything is better.
