I'm a little late on this one (about as late as I possibly could have been!), but The Bishop's Daredevil Stunt Club has released a special digital EP for spooky season. Veering a little (but not too far) from its signature modern power pop sound, the BDSC treats us to four tracks of horror-themed goodness on the quite excellent Vanishing Point. With songs about vampires, killer cars, ghosts, and the end of the world, Vanishing Point will make a fine addition to your Halloween playlist both this year and beyond. Lead track "Every Night I'm Dying" is the big hit here. It packs plenty of guitar punch along with a hook that will haunt you. At the same time, it doubles down on the synths and amps up the drama. Did this band just invent goth power pop? There's no denying that singer/guitarist William Giricz has the vocal range to really make this song work. And it makes sense that this band would excel at a song like this. Aren't all the great vampire stories really just love stories? Another highlight is the closer "Nightfall on Doomsday," which is probably the punkiest track I've ever heard from the BDSC. It's essentially a fight song for Armageddon, and it's deviously upbeat. For my money, this is the scariest song of the bunch. I'm confident that I'm safe from vampires and murderous motor vehicles. But songs about end times are far from implausible given the current state of the world. If you enjoyed some of the longer, more epic rock songs on the band's recent album Please Stand By, you'll get a kick out of "Why You Ghosting Me Girl?" (a song that brings new meaning to getting "ghosted"!).
