After first hearing this c.d., I was stunned. I had never heard music of this genre lift me off of my feet, and just make me feel great.

Pianos Become The Teeth is a five piece band from Maryland, who fuses together roots of post-hardcore with some instrumental and ambient sounds.

Their lyrics, along with their instruments are so raw, they just cut deep and give you a connection with their music. In the song Cripples Can't Shiver, there is a part in the middle of the song [from 2:45ish to 3:46] where a woman is speaking about her husband being diagnosed with an illness. This was a very unique style of breakdown, not like anything I had heard before.

The last song on the c.d. [Young Fire] has a very down pace type feel to it. It is very similar to the band Mogwai. (See the song Ithica Ø 27)

Suggested Songs: Cripples Can't Shiver, Pensive, and Young Fire.
