Grabbed the We Barbarians EP (http://www.amazon.com/Headspace/dp/B005J587N8/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1346970665&sr=8-1&keywords=we+barbarians). Really underrated.

Biloxi Parish is definitely the pinnacle of their discography to me. It's such a solid, complete song.

Huh, that's interesting. I always thought of them as more of an album band since they seem just OK live. Granted, I've only seen them once, and they were good, but their live show didn't add much...

Come to think of it, I felt that way about 59 Sound too. But part of it had to do with the rawness of the album that I didn't get into immediately. Handwritten feels like it played all its cards...

Handwritten doesn't seem to have withstood the test of time for me. The only songs I have any desire to revisit with regularity are 45 and Biloxi.

Yes! Knew you'd love them. You're an authority here on this genre. If you're digging it, then it's certified great. Did Thomas send you a link for the album?



To be completely honest, I've never...

I don't know if there's a time table for the solo stuff. I know Dustin's hinted at it in some interviews and there's "Of Crows and Crowns" circulating the internet so I'm assuming there's likely one...

Ultimately, this project was probably intended solely for use in the church, rather than to be marketed to the broader Thrice fanbase. I guess the reason I felt it deserved exposure here on AP is...

That's probably true. Good talent just seems to be much harder to find in the "Christian music" scene.







Thanks for the kind words.

I definitely understand where you're coming from. Unfortunately a lot of modern worship just has no artistic integrity. Musically it's usually a cookie cutter of another cookie cutter, and they're...

Yeah, same. Something about their rawness actually makes it harder for me to get into their stuff. But this ones clicking more and more with each listen.

Since Gaslight's new album isn't shy about its Petty influence, and everyone here seems to dig it, I thought I'd recommend Gasoline Heart's new one Thanks For Everything...
