Staff Recommendations (02/05/06)

Posted by: Ryan Imhof (02/05/06)
The staff recommendations for this week are below; click "Read More" to view them all and make sure to keep an eye on this thread as other staff members will add their recs for this weekend. Post your recs in the replies!

Ryan: My recs can be read here.
Gabe: Great music found here. Go HAWKS!!
Tony: You can read my recs, along with Matt from Tamerlane Recordings, right here.
Scott: Go Seahawks!!! I recommend checking out this ripping punk band on Nitro called No Trigger. Their new album Cayoneer hits stores March 21st, and I can't get the advance out of my profile. I also heavily recommend The Lawrence Arms, whose new album is also excellent.
Greg: Allow me to show off my outrageously hip taste in music here.
Rick: Latterman and Sigur Ros. I don't care if everyone already knows about both bands, they've owned my rotation this week.
Jonathan: Sherwood! I just discovered these guys (I know, I know, I'm a late bloomer!) I love their full-length "Sing, But Keep Going." So far my favorite discovery of 2006. Also, the new Saves The Day record is amazing. Yes, it really is worth all the hype going around.

slowreader - this was a side project for two of the members in the impossibles, and it sounds like elliott smith. i cannot even begin to tell you how good they are.
animal collective - i actually just started listening to them after hearing all about them. why? i have no idea. but i like it.
i am a bolt of lightning - listen to "all state make out champ." it's good.
the like young - i think they just got signed to polyvinyl records.
richard buckner - haven't heard much of him, but "blue and wonder" is an amazing song.

Tilly and The Wall - They use tapdancing for percussion. And they're infectiously upbeat.

Watashi Wa - I wasnt expecitng much when I got Eager Seas but since they're on Tooth & Nail, I figured I'd still give it a chance, and by golly, I do enjoy alot of this record.

This Day Forward - In Response is one of those solid records I feel is often overlooked. An Amazon reviewer sets the mood of this record pretty well, stating, "Conceptual, illustrious dreamscapes of love, hate, regret and fear cocooned in scream soaked deliveries, and racy mood fluctuations." Though the band is now defunct, a couple of the members continued their musical endeavors into another band I love, Circa Survive.

The American Analog Set - Set Free is one of the chillest records I own. It's perfect for a nostalgic mid-afternoon pause.

Misery Signals - So sexy even Fall Out Boy loves them (I swear, FOB's drummer is always wearing a Misery Signals shirt everytime I see them on TV or live). Anywho, Of Malice and The Magnum Heart is another record I feel isn't heard from enough. Pretty frantic metal-core with the occasional meltdown.
