Featured Stream: Flobots

Posted by: Lueda Alia (03/20/10)
We figured we would bring you something fun to listen to this weekend, so if you head over to Flobots' AP.net profile, you will be able to stream their new album Survival Story in its entirety. In case you did not already know, the band worked with Tim McIlrath of Rise Against on their single "White Flag Warrior." So head over there to listen and don't forget to purchase the album here after. Enjoy.

MySpace has had this stream at least since the album came out... I've been checking it out and thinking about at least buying a few songs.

They seem to get a decent amount of hate on here but I love their genuine lyrical flow over genuine instrumentation.... much more pleasing (to my ears, at least) than the computerized beats (and now computerized vocals) pumping out of most hip-hop stuff these days. And Flobots' lyrics trumps most of that stuff as well... I'm a conservative and don't agree with their whole worldview, but I love their attitude within it, their passion for justice and hope for improvement, which is much classier than typical political-song-ranting that just criticizes the other side for being stupid.

Got this album yesterday. Very good follow up album to Fight With Tools. They really stepped up the music on this album and tried less to find a really catchy hook for e every song.

This gentleman pretty much gave my thoughts on the album.

Never been into these guys, but I think I'll give this a listen.

Edit: after first listen, surprisingly, I think I like it; seems like it'll grow on me

This is pretty good. Not sure how it compares to Fight With Tools though. I'm thinking it's gonna be better.

Can't say I understand the hate towards these guys. Musically, they know what they're doing. On both albums.

I listened to the myspace stream and I liked what I heard, definitely a solid follow up. I have to get this album soon. I'm glad to see some other people give the album a listen rather than just discard it as "nu-metal" like some other guy posted in another thread.
