So much good stuff.

Originanimate 08/27/11 09:43 PM

Envoi is awesome! Stoked that they're on this list. I've seen their release performed live, and heard a lot of their recordings. Seriously righteous stuff!

kelsofoshow 08/27/11 10:02 PM

Envoi is completely amazing. Such good people, and music. They really rule.

joecool169 08/27/11 10:30 PM

Envoi is a great band. It has a sound that is new and not like stuff that is generic bubblegum pop.

Bechterrr 08/27/11 10:36 PM


PirateSkater182 08/27/11 11:43 PM

I find it weird the only people who have said anything about this band Envoi created their profile today and those are their first posts.

Inside job. :nod:

TerrancePryor 08/28/11 12:59 AM

Night Birds and Animals as Leaders should be great releases.

Alex DiVincenzo 08/28/11 12:01 PM
