Cincinnati based New Sincerity Works play a familiar style of Alt-Rock tinged with pyschedelic notes. Drawing on obvious influences from The New Pornographers and Spoon, their sound is frantic, at times even histrionic. Twanging, reverb heavy interludes cut the tension between episodes of frenzied screams and rapid-fire, fuzzed out riffs.
The ten songs on the New Sincerity Works album "Wonder Lust" tell the stories of hearts, lips, Kentucky on Ohio, and the comings and goings of the luster, lore, and lure of love and lust. "I wrote the songs to accompany a book of personal photographs. The book never happened but I did get a record out of the whole project. I liked the idea of trying to describe what falling in and out of love is like and what happens in between those extreme modes of living. It's a record about love but not really love songs."- Mike
