Woke Up Falling
It's Only Your Ghost (Post 436 Records)

By: Alex Steininger

Portland-based post-punk, melodic rock, and slightly emo outfit Woke Up Falling follow up 2001's debut, Dividing Blue From Blue, with It's Only Your Ghost. A four-song EP that delivers the intensity of a Woke Up Falling show, and the smart, emotional lyricism, not to mention from man Gordie Muscat's heart-on-the-sleeve, gripping vocal delivery, that we have come to expect from this band. Here we find Woke Up Falling at the top of their game, screaming out their inner souls while the band plays loud, pounding rock 'n' roll, except on album closer "Give It Up", a teary-eyed acoustic ballad that will make a lump form in your throat. Bonus live tracks also pop up us 'hidden' tracks. I'll give it a B.
