The new wave of emo was beginning to break by the time the Early November dropped The Room’s Too Cold in October 2003, but the band’s profile didn’t suffer as a result. TRTC was, and is, an important record for a lot of people in much the same way as Brand New’s Deja Entendu, released a few months prior and a staggeringly crucial benchmark for the scene that still resonates nearly a decade later—even if it’s a much weirder record when stacked side-by-side with The Room’s Too Cold. That record was a prime example of how to write and perform lush, heartfelt rock music that wasn’t overly banal or unnecessarily meddlesome. TEN’s new album In Currents—their first since 2006’s ambitious-yet-bloated triple album The Mother, the Mechanic, and the Path—has plenty of nods to beats covered on their debut, but without the “time and place” feel that permeates The Room’s Too Cold and a more mature, well-rounded disposition.
