East Texas indie musicians 3weeksplay have released their latest full-length album, “Who We Are.” The album is part rock, part groove, part pop, and entirely, wholly fun. The record is composed of fourteen tracks comprising forty minutes of play, each song a 3weeksplay classic unto itself. No track on “Who We Are” is wasted. Each composition is a single deserving radio play, and fans will hit the repeat button on “Incognito,” considering it their favorite for a few weeks before moving on to “Lightning Pole,” “Pass Go and Collect 200$,” and so on until every track has had its time at the top. It is a record that can stay in the listener's car CD player for weeks on end without becoming tired.
The overtone 3weeksplay has taken with “Who We Are” is optimistic and rock driven, but at no time does it sound contrived or sappy, thereby avoiding a pitfall that has been plaguing modern pop for the last couple of years. “Who We Are” is led by a clean-channel guitar, unadorned for the most part, and showcased by vocals that are rich and natural. Their bass lines are not ostentatious, yet arching and omnipresent like ambient light. Their drums have a power that rolls along in the background, biding its time, with a rising tide that builds and roils like a tsunami. Their music is not unlike the best acts of the late nineties, such as Blind Melon or Modest Mouse, although there are slight reggae elements in there, too (think the Police) as well as the modern ethereal quality of bands like Kings of Leon.
Their lyrics have an almost jazz-like phrasing, and their messages have a purity that listeners can identify with, sympathize with, and understand on a level that needs neither explanation or philosophizing. The record is appropriately named, too, because “Who We Are” is a naked address to the listening world that says, “Hi, world, we're 3weeksplay. Let's hang out for awhile and jam.”
