I Am The Movie

Motion City Soundtrack

About I Am The Movie by Motion City Soundtrack

Bursting at the seams with creativity, this debut disk is bristling with electric guitars and swirling indie/synth sounds that flail and furl themselves between the melody lines. The lyrics are bright and clever, funny and tragic, with a wry wit and a keen knack for innuendo often offering the listener an original and skewed commentary on pop culture. Although the sound is by definition loud rock n' roll it's got an amazing sense of harmonic flow and an irresistible beat that's guaranteed to make your body move. Produced by Ed Rose (Get Up Kids, Ultimate Fakebook, The Anniversary), "I Am The Movie" will remind you of whatever you have ever loved about music, and transmit it's message of pure, earnest, Midwestern energy, directly.
