Collapsible Lung

Collapsible Lung by Relient K
Released: Jul 2013
Label: Mono Vs. Stereo
Frontman Matt Thiessen has been moonlighting as a songwriter for Owl City, Kelly Clarkson and Wreck-It Ralph, so it's nice to see him return to his day job with Relient K. This band is known for majoring in minor details, but that's a big part of their charm. And you have to admire their elasticity, changing shape from pop-punk to quirky radio-ready singles to a singer-songwriter track like "Can't Complain." This project marks the first time the band invited co-writers into its process, and the result is a vibe-y, laid-back mix. Maybe these class clowns have finally grown up.
