Artist of The Week: August 25th, 2009
08/25/09 at 06:44 PM by Keagan Ilvonen

There aren't many artists that I follow and devote myself too 100% but The Format was one of those bands. Lyrically they just stuck. It didn't matter how intricate or simple they always hit home. Musically they had everything I wanted in a band, fully orchestrated jingles and stripped down acoustic ballads. Nate's voice hooked me as soon as my ears got a taste of what he was capable of. So of course when they announced their "Hiatus" I was devastated. But luckily for me a savor was announced not too long after. Nate had picked up a few friends and started a new project called fun. I didn't know what to expect from this but anything new from Nate excited me. After months and months of waiting their debut album has finally hit stores. Aim and Ignite mixes everything you loved about The Format and some new sounds that gives it a completely new twist. If for some reason you had doubted Ruess's talent to turn a pop song this album will reassure you with more than enough confidence for a dozen people. Finding someone who doesn't enjoy this album is about as rare as getting Jesse Lacey to speak up about Daisy. Do yourself a favor and get this album. If you need any more convincing read Drew's review here.

Holy Shit. This is that album that you listen to and it just makes your year. Don't really have any words to describe how happy/satisfied/enthralled/in love with this fucking album I am.

Possible Trip
03/03/09 at 04:50 AM by Keagan Ilvonen
Could be in the works which would allow me to see Manchester Orchestra, Fun, and Audrye Sessions in Mass. Then spend 2 days doing whatever and on my way home see Lupe Fiasco in NH. I hope I can work this out.
