|It's been quite some time since I've anticipated a release date this much for two different records. Two slabs of wax/plastic/megabytes from artists who have had a profound impact the past two years of my life.|
I remember getting Sometimes Things Just Disappear in the mail approximately a week before Christmas 2007. Polar Bear Club's The Redder, rhe Better E.P. had been in constant rotation since it's release--but this album was something different. Lyrically, it was exactly what I needed to hear at the time. Musically? Well, the music matched the lyrics. Frustrated, determined, and feeling stuck in a scene you want to break out of.
The same can be said for Frank Turner. Sleep is for the Week and Love, Ire, & Song left a similar mark. Being a twenty-something wanting more from life, more from relationships, and more from myself.
Maybe I'm weak, but those albums helped shape me. I want more from life, which can get frustrating. Some people turn to the bible, but quite frankly, that book doesn't do anything for me...So it's music for me. That's where I find my inspiration.
I'm hoping Chasing Hamburg and Poetry of the Deed can do that for me. I love music.
