One of the hardest groups to label with any clear genre, Purity Ring has recently released the followup to its 2012 debut "Shrines." "Another Eternity" will undoubtedly be compared to the earlier fan favorite. Rather than the elaborate progression one might expect from a band's sophomore album, "Another Eternity" sounds like a welcome extension of the debut.
Sample-stringer and beat-master Corin Roddick began working on arrangements for the Purity Ring while on tour with Gobble Gobble in 2010. Soon, singer Megan James was tapped to add her warm vocals and introspective lyrics (culled from her once private diary) to form an ethereal and haunting brand of indie-pop underscored with an indelible hip-hop methodology.
I've always been the kind of person that doesn't like to limit myself to one genre of music, and this year was perfect for that.
