Charlie Played Cello’s debut album has something for everyone. The sheer scope of the music spans from mainstream power-pop (“Tired of Playing Games”/”It’s a Hit”) to nostalgic jam band (“Fat Kid”/”I’m Not Dead”) to sinister post-punk anthems (“Save Your Tears”/”Nobody Leaves This Room”). Tracks like “The Rose Always Wins” and “Runaway with Me” summon the early days of Motown, with Wiebe’s torch vocals soaring above thick bass grooves and wistful chord progressions. The result is a debut effort that solidifies CPC’s place in modern rock.
