Yeah, Green River Ordinance is doing it for me this year. They are so good.
The new BTE album isn't that great. Sounds a lot like a Kevin Griffin solo album. It's worth a gander, but not terrific. As for the new J.R. Richards. Freaking A-M-A-Z-I-N-G. So solid.
Yeah, I can't really get into the new BTE album either, which is too bad because their last one was great.
