Biography

Winter storms are punishingly cold and uncomfortable, but are an important source of water for spring growth. Likewise for Dead Confederate, the series of New Jersey blizzards that besieged the recording of sophomore album Sugar (a reference to the record snowfall) also heralded growth from the darker, somber realm of their critically acclaimed Wrecking Ball. With an evolving approach and ... Read more in Amazon's Dead Confederate Store

3.0 out of 5 stars Not Quite As Smashing As They Thought 6 Oct 2010
By Gannon TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Dead Confederate haven't changed direction in so much as they've changed idols for their second long-player Sugar. Their impressive debut, Wrecking Ball, took the southern-fried grunge of fellow Georgia state natives Manchester Orchestra, turned it all the way up to ten, and threw in a little rockin' alt-country for good measure. Just as the 5-piece's preceding EP had done, it culminated with the epic enormity of "The Rat", but Wrecking Ball was not limited to this one moment and in particular its tail end was full of raw power. With it still ringing in the ears, Sugar appears a bit anaemic, if not diabetic, in comparison.

Sure, it has its highlights - the rippling fuzzy menace of "Quiet Kid" for example - but the focus is now much less Kurt Cobain and a lot more Billy Corgan. As good as The Smashing Pumpkins were for a time, they were also rarely as explosive as Nirvana however. This, along with more regular song lengths and Hardy Morris's decision to neuter his apocalyptic howl, all land Sugar a little limply, which is peculiar as it is still a huge sounding record in places.

Its prominent drums go some way to confirming it, masquerading as automatic gunfire throughout. The massive, ponderous swell in "Semi-Thought", the frequent and all-embracing guitar squall, as well as the stadium-sized growl of "Mob Scene" help give the argument legs too. It's a pity then that there are also misplaced guitar solos to distract (see "Giving It All Away") and textbook rockers that verge on the toothless.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 23 Oct 2010
By LTPP1998 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Is anybody listening? These guys are part of a much needed Indy rock revival that hasn't been heard from since the mid ninties. (See also Alberta Cross) They took a bit of a stylistic chance with this album by shortening up the songs considerably in comparision to their Psyche rock classic Wrecking Ball album. Fortunately they pulled it off surprisingly well. Jason Scarboro reigns as one of the most interesting drummers on the planet and he refuses to just provide a back beat on this album as well. Specifically his use of the snare drum helps to propel this collection of songs along quite nicely. John Watkins takes obvious pride in creating keyboard parts that give songs like Semi-Thought considerable depth. (Is that a Hammond or Fender Rhodes piano I hear in the mix?) Oh yeah, and the guitars. Brantley Senn who plays bass, penned one half of the songs including the impressive Quiet Kid. A tune which evolves from an up tempo sonic thrasher into a slow burning thought provoker. Another Senn song is the muted string Mob Scene which to date would have to be clasiified as the bands hardest rocking tune. Think of a revved up Gang of Four crossing over into serious hard rock territory. Song writer, guitarist and lead vocalist Hardy Morris once again pens a fivesome of classic tunes including the beautiful By Design. This is a tune that deserves to end up on the soundtrack of the years coolest independent/nonindependent film release. He shows his greatest range as a singer on this track and it is impressive. Another standout vocally would have to be the title track. Morris' phrasing and tone on the uber cool Sugar is impressive. Finally, Walker Howle continues to be one of the most soulfull slide guitar players on the planet. Although not able to stretch out quite as much as he was on the bands first album Wrecking Ball, his excellent guitar work is all over this release. ------ Go see these guys live. I usually avoid meeting bands after a performance, but took a chance with these guys and found them to be smart, funny, nonegotistical and the type of people that one finds themselves cheering for. Viva Dead Confederate.

5.0 out of 5 stars an honest review from a casual spectator 16 Nov 2010
By author973 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I don't know if i can say im an indy rock connosseur. Hell, I can probably count how many rock albums I own on my two hands. I'm more of an hip-hop/electronic guy. But I do appreciate a certain sound that I tend to look for when I take a liking to a band. And these guys, particularly on this release, have that sound.

The thing that stood out to me first was the lead singer. Im not even sure what his name is but i do know he's pretty damn good. His voice has some pain in it and you can tell that hes belting those songs out from an honest place. You know when someone is REALLY feeling their words and immerses themself in the music and he seems like the genuine article.

Once you get past how great the singer is you get to the band, which is pretty incredible as well. A lot of times, you either get a great singer or a great band, one or the other. The primary reason I don't own more rock albums is because i feel like one of those things usually suffers, but these guys hit that sweet spot where they are able to capitalize off that balance.

If I had to make a complaint I'd say i felt the mix is a little muddy. Some of the highs got a little lost on some of the songs where the distortion is revved up. However, it does seem intentional to give it that lo-fi feel and it didn't bother me. It almost makes it seem like this could have been recorded in another era.

All in all, I really appreciate what these guys are doing. Its hard and edgy at times and sincere and heartfelt at others. Oh yeah, its LOUD too, hahahahaha! I really look forward to seeing them live if i ever get a chance.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Stuff 27 Sep 2010

Love these guys. Even better live than on CD.
This one is admittedly kind of all over the place compared to their first, Wrecking Ball.
But, it grows on you like moss. The more you listen to it, the more you're gonna like it.
For me, the title track, Sugar, is rediculous. In The Dark is amazing, By Design is amazing.
The radio ready Giving It All Away is nice, and Run From The Gun is too.
But really, GO SEE THESE GUYS LIVE !!!!!!!!!!!
5.0 out of 5 stars EPIC CD and Band! 27 Jun 2013

Thank you radio----NOT. Thank you for not playing this and sharing them with everyone else to let them everyone know just how good they are.Oh well more music for me to enjoy. To put things in perspective, Dead Confederate is the whipping cream to your latte' as Katy Perry is a bad taste in your mouth you can't recover from.This group should have much more coverage than they do, so that younger people will know what good music really is versus karope crap all day on radio as if its normal.
4.0 out of 5 stars Everyone has an opinion 4 May 2011
By Diverse 1 - Published on Amazon.com
One star is harsh, let's start off by saying that no it's not as good as Wrecking Ball but it's not a bad album. There are songs on this album that you will listen to over and over. My personal favorite is Run from the Gun but it's worth a listen. This band is awesome live and this is more to hear when you see them. Not a must but definately not a must not either. It's your money and your decision.
