Like Philpot, Lullwater riffs on classic rock, a muscly guitar/garage rock, even while hinting at the harder-edged side of R.E.M.

Lullwater - SilhouetteSilhouette starts off in 12 Stones-like hard rock on “Worse by Better.” Things pull back for the R.E.M. hints on the country-tinged “Amsterdam,” which also carries a Goo Goo Dolls feel.

There’s a marching quality to the drums on the shout of “A Forgotten Name.” “Alive” and “Let Me Out” rage and rock like songs destined to be used in hockey arenas to stir up the crowd. “Let Me Out” especially has that arena feel with its pogoing chorus.

“Whatever Happened” kicks up a bit of dust from the Gin Blossoms brand of countrified rock. “Low” picks a fine guitar line to softly lead into the crash of a chorus.

More acoustic twang rock closes out the album with “Faithful Sinners,” a song ripe for spiritual exploration and discussion with its chorus, “I’ve got my sins, I’ve got my demons, I’ve got my angels, I’ve got my faith … we will meet our fate.”

For the most part though, Silhouette is music made for the festival season, set to power up outdoor stages as the sun goes down.
