My recs for the week are a mix of the old and new.
First off, we have the Goo Goo Dolls
. Their CD Dizzy Up the Girl
is downright orgasmic alt-rock that I still hope to be jamming to 30 years from now. If you haven't heard this hit-filled album, you need to. It's really that great.
My second and final rec is Blackpool Lights
. This band features Jim Suptic of the Get Up Kids, and gives listeners an idea what TGUK might have sounded like if they got huge. It's a little more accessible than TGUK, but still is marked by quality songwriting, excellent vocals and instrument work, and catchy songs like you wouldn't believe.
Have a great week, and if you haven't, check out my Hawthorne Heights and Yellowcard reviews (they're in my sig).
