So I had Evan (RockVocalPower) help me out this time with recommendations. Enjoy!
Explosions in the Sky
– I recently watched Friday Night Lights again and am still head over heels or EITS. They are truly extraordinary and epic musicians.
– Very jaunting and creative indie-rock that reminds me of a Wes Anderson film.
Further Seems Forever
– Listen to The Moon is Down and How To Start a Fire. And actually listen to the way each album is vocalized and constructed with the songs. I guarantee that if you are not an FSF and you really put your heart into it, I think you can see some great songs and great poetry. RIP FSF.
- If there was ever a book on how to write a killer hook, these guys would be the authors. Check out three demos that will appear on their new album.
The Mile After
- new Rushmore signees. I've seen these guys seven times and they get better each time. Expect BIG things from their debut.
- The acoustic shows have restored my faith in Kris and the boys. Listen to the new song clips on their Myspace.
- It's not "How to Start a Fire," but come on...Jason Gleason.
- It's a shame this band didn't get any push from Tooth and Nail, because they put out one of the absolute best albums of 2005.
