Jared Putnam and The March Divide scored a couple of winning releases in 2013 with “Music for Films” and “Music for Television,” and things continue to look up for the emo outfit with the release of latest full-length “Billions.”

The March Divide CD“I’m finally at a place in my life where I don’t have to bleed all over the page to write a song,” Putnam explains. “I was in a good place writing ‘Billions.’ I haven’t been taking everything so seriously, which really helped me to open up.”

The results, while less angsty (and thankfully less earnest) than The March Divide’s previous output, make for a very pleasurable listen. Terrific lead single “I Told You So” launches a 10-track set that whisks by in an efficient 32 minutes, and The March Divide also score with “November Suicides,” “Dumb Luck,” “Given Out,” “Last Call” and “Situations.” Good stuff.
