Thomas Giles – Velcro Kid

It should be of surprise to absolutely no one that Between the Buried and Me frontman Tommy Rogers doesn't like to sit still. While his 2004 solo debut Giles was hardly a serious effort, but 2011's Pulse (the first under current project Thomas Giles) painted Rogers as a capable and serious musician in his own right across several genres, including progressive rock, industrial, electronic, and folk. Pulse was a portrait of an artist trying different things, but its follow-up Modern Noise was where Rogers truly appeared to find his artistic voice as a more focused and stylistically cohesive record.
