Autumn Falling is a male/female duo who knocks on your door with the wonder of acoustic guitar and an accompanying violin. Their brand of uptempo, heartfelt tunes is far from spectacular, but the effort put into trying to be a little more original about expressing relationship problems in the lyrics along with a consistency in moods that doesn't lead to repetition or monotony has them working in their favor.

"Forgotten Holiday" opens the EP up, and its immediate strumming sets things off well. The slight tempo changes throughout are nice, but the touch of female vocals are a bit too subtle, and are used sparsely. The songs would benefit a bit from a little more of the female vocal touch. There's scattered amounts of piano that are all placed right, like the outro of "Showing Up Unannounced." I'm not sure how all these things would translate live, but the CD is a halfway decent dose of emotional outbreaks.

This pair doesn't do a ton of stuff to differentiate themselves from every other duo armed with an acoustic guitar and a nasal set of vocal chops ready to unleash tales of their emotional well/ill-doing on an unassuming public, but there's a couple interesting things going on that keep it from falling into the bait of complete cliché and total treachery.

An emo band name doesn't have to contain any months nor weekdays in it. It just has to sound really corny. Kinda like "Your Throbbing Heart" or "These Tears Are Yours To Keep".

I think that "Burrr this is a cold winter" will be the next one to make it big.

A Death In April=$$$

Somewhere, a fledgling metalcore band is scrambling to come up with a new, season oriented band name.

Wanna help create a ton of these and put 'em up for sale on Ebay?

I know some sucker is going to pay for them.

I found a website the other day where people were paying good money (up to like $40) for AIM screen names.

The best band with guitar and violin is Ghost Mice. They get a 10
