That moment when you start listening to new music and you're completely floored. That's what happened to me when I started listening to Paper States' debut EP Be Alone. Much like Brighten, A Rocket To The Moon, or newer The Maine, it's just...fantastic. Warm guitar tones, soothing vocals, and big choruses, this will be a band to watch out for in 2013. Steve Soboslai (Punchline) lent his hand in this, helping the band during the preproduction phase while John Browne (Bright and Early) and Kory Gable (I Call Fives, Punchline) produced the record. Listen to Paper States' Be Alone on the band's AP.net profile and leave your thoughts in the replies.

Vanna have entered Getaway Recordings in Haverhill, MA with producer Jay Maas to begin work on their new album, The Few and the Far Between.
Vvocalist Davey Muise commentsWith all the touring we've done especially this past year and all the time away from home, not only did it make for great writing time and lyrical ammo, it made us want to do the next record at home. For the sound and direction we were going Jay was a no brainer for us.
