Thank you, TMSR

Ensemble spazz indie rock is the best way to describe it. Yet somehow it is still melodic and memorable! The drums are amazing (as are all the instruments).

death cab meets broken social scene

Camarata

decent enough cutesy, OC-ready indie pop. get it if you like the bands they ape - death cab for cutie, broken social scene, etc.

They Say All Music Guide

The Most Serene Republic might tip their hats to their Arts & Crafts labelmates on their debut album Underwater Cinematographer, but this theatrical sextet is their own supergroup. Underwater Cinematographer comes off shiny and happy at first with its majestic piano arrangements dancing around angst-ridden guitar riffs and warm harmonies. Frontman/songwriter Adrian Jewett wears his heart on his sleeve like so many of indie rock’s tortured souls (Lou Barlow, Ben Gibbard, Joey Sweeney), particularly on songs such as “The Protagonist Suddenly Realizes What He Must Do in the Middle of Downtown Traffic” and “In Places, Empty Spaces.” These two particular tracks not only highlight a classic sentimentality, but also an inviting and a very personal effort from the band. They make it okay to be playful (“King of No One”) and smart (“You’re a Loose Cannon McArthur…But You Get the Job Done”), all without melodrama and too much romance. Underwater Cinematographer isn’t your quintessential debut album. It’s too complex, too inquisitive, and too ambitious. Tip your hats to the Most Serene Republic. – MacKenzie Wilson
