Review Summary: Traversing a familiar forest

In the vein of similar acts, Stand Up Get Down is an emo band with an ear for memorable guitar lines and vocal melodies. While this formula has been recycled to varying effect, Stand Up Get Down manages to make it their own with sheer execution; they certainly get things done during We Have Something to Celebrate's barely forty minute runtime. There are few, if any filler songs on here, and the band keeps its youthful magic alive throughout even as songs trail into the 5-minute lengths towards the closing of the album. Nostalgic reverberating guitars are superimposed over an exuberant percussion section, lending each song replay value and a certain earworm-like quality. The hauntingly addictive guitar melody from "Giants" and the sheer joy of "The Feel Good Anthem of the Summer" are staples, but all of the other songs reach equal heights in their own ways, from choruses to well-written tapping sections. "Well-written" seems to characterize We Have Something to Celebrate as a whole, as any cohesive record that succeeds musically is commendable. Good on you, Stand Up Get Down.
