Unemployed is the follow up concept album to The Employee’s “See the Shadow.” On Unemployed, The Employee’s delve into the ideas of the death of the American dream and the corrupt and paranoid state of our country. While these are pretty heavy ideals to begin with, the band does a good job of blending them into the music so you can be enlightened by the lyrics but also enjoy just rocking out to some good music. The band is loud. I will say that again, the band is LOUD! Not a distorted messy loud but a “I wish I could turn up my volume more” loud. The Employees have a raw but clean sound that really brings every tune to life and demands every bit of volume your stereo can muster. The album delivers big guitars and big drums with vocals that drive it all home. Unemployed has a lot to offer for any kind of music lover out there. You want to rock? check out songs like “Oh no!” and “Island”. Need a breather from the hard stuff? Check out songs like “Rumor” or “Winter Round Here.” No matter what you’re in the mood for Unemployed has what you’re looking for. The Employees are based just outside Chicago and perform all over in and out of the city. If you’re in the area I highly recommend you check out their website for dates of upcoming shows. If you can’t get enough volume out of your headphones while listening to Unemployed, the band can deliver all the volume you can handle and more at a live show. Unemployed is a must listen album and if you can, a must see as well.
