  • Audiovent may boast bloodlines to Incubus (singer Jason is the brother of the latter's frontman Brandon Boyd, while guitarist Ben's older sib is Incubus fretman Mike Einziger), but a complex and melodic approach towards music are the only similarities between the two bands. Throughout their impressive debut DIRTY SEXY KNIGHTS IN PARIS, Audiovent avoids merely cranking up the distortion and instead keeps a steady hand on producing well-crafted hard rock songs. Between drawing from early-'90s grunge influences and working with Goo Goo Dolls producer Gavin McKillop, this California quartet does a fine job of appropriating the loud-soft-loud method of composition; see the sitar-tinged "Rain" and the hard-hitting "Beautiful Addiction," with its subtle, dream-pop guitar.
  • Able to play as loud and hard as any of their contemporaries, Audiovent truly shine on songs falling outside of the aggro-rock box. Most notable are the sweet pop of "Sweet Frustration" with its mostly acoustic sound, and "When I Drown," a piano-driven cut featuring Einziger and drummer Jamin Wilcox on vocals surrounded by light string arrangements. DIRTY SEXY KNIGHTS IN PARIS succeeds in presenting a different side of aggro-rock by a group that's more than Incubus' baby- brother band.
