Austin's, Defender (Dustin Spillman), is an electro-ambient-rock culmination that sounds like purity and chaos colliding. Its a beautiful mess! Its what music should be. Its emotive, honest, and exploratory.

On songs like, Everytime I Fall, Spillman utilizes beautiful space, electronic beats, and a haunting female vocal that is reminiscent of My Brightest Diamond. A couple tracks later on, The Last Memory of Man, Spillman uses a midtempo soundscape and electronics to drive home a sound ready for any post-apocylaptic scene. Danger on the Bridge has a darker, more ominous sound to it. With distorted spoken words mixed amongst the heavy beat-driven song, Danger on the Bridge succeeds in every way, with a sound much like AptCore.

Spillman clearly has what it takes. He's forward thinking in every way and composes truly chaotic beauty!

RATING: 5 of 5 stars
