The Library is on Fire has been characterized as 1990s rock revival. It’s easy to see why, as the trio’s echoes of the alternative rock scene are reminiscent of the bands Steve Five would have listened to growing up in Kent, Ohio. But to really get a sense of what it’s all about, the band can only be described through the musical-mathematical science that goes into our exclusive Mus-o-meter.
Take the pounding, guitar-centric rock and melodic bass lines of Dinosaur Jr.’s 1985 debut “Dinosaur,” then add …
The lo-fi pop sensibilities of Guided by Voices “Bee Thousand.” Then add …
The melancholy vocals of Oasis’s “(What’s the Story) Morning Glory?” The sum?
The Library is on Fire’s “Magic Windows, Magic Night.”
