I've been on a huge Starting Line kick lately. I've been playing Say It Like You Mean It for over a week and still can't get enough of it. Definitely one of my favourite albums ever, and everything about it seems to fit so perfectly right now. I also find it really interesting listening to the We The People Sessions that were recorded about two years prior and comparing the albums. (If anyone doesn't have these songs, I'm more than happy to send them.)
Next up is Based On a True Story, as I slowly appreciate this great band's discography (which can be heard in its entirety on their Myspace).
I'd like to start doing this on a more regular basis, I love reading other peoples' recommendations, so hopefully someone can gain something from my thoughts.
Here's what I've been listening to lately:
Cinematic Sunrise - I had doubts as to whether I'd enjoy their EP after taking a quick listen to the songs on their Myspace a while ago, but I decided to give it a chance, and it's actually very good. Definitely worth a listen. "You Told Me You Loved Me" is such a beautiful song.
Driver F - Fun, catchy and extremely enjoyable music. Their video for "Two Words, Mr. President..." is hilarious. Chase The White Whale is a perfect CD to pick up as summer approaches.
Brightwood - It's been over 2 years since this band released their debut EP, The Love Antidote, and they have finally have a release date for their new full length. It comes out on July 19th and I'm sure it's going to turn a few heads. One of my most anticipated releases so far this year. Take a listen to two new songs on their Myspace.
If you have any recommendations for me, please let me know.
