Screaming Secrets review from last month's Velocity

In 11 years, a band develops certain characteristics that are difficult to break. In the case of Second Story Man, this has too often meant being deliberate and restrained. The band's previous records, 2002's "Pins and Needles" and the 2006 EP "Red Glows Brighter," offered moments of brilliance — harmonies that made sense, a hooky intro that held you captive. But Second Story Man never went wild, never became excessive. Even when singer/guitarists Carrie Neumayer and Jeremy Irvin raised their voices, it seemed too premeditated. "Screaming Secrets" is a coming out party, then. The guitars go off on tangents, the screams are in earnest and the rhythms are more intense. After a decade of toiling in Louisville, this quartet has found a new gear.
