Party at the End of the World  (H. Ave Records/Elevate Entertainment)
by  Hardie Avenue

FOR FANS OF: Family Force 5, Manic Drive, Hearts of Saints
Rating: 4 Stars

Combining bits of rock, rap, electronica and straight-up contemporary pop, Hardie Avenue dishes up a constant dose of variety across its latest long-player. The Tulsa-based band certainly knows how to rev up the purified party, as the title so cleverly proclaims, while a handful of vertically directed ballads shed additional light on members’ spiritual maturity.
