Alliswell and The Glass Gentlemen sound interesting based on the RIYL. Will download and give a listen tomorrow night.

EDIT: And now not downloading Alliswell due to the absolutely atrocious site they uploaded their music to. Of all the great ones out there, why 4Shared?

I just checked it out and I like it so far myself. At this point I have to say I'd add Rufio and Silverstein to the RIYL as well.

My dad actually owns/created 4shared, and since it's inception, it has tore my family apart. We lost our house, my college fund wasted away, and all my family's hope and dreams of a better life were shattered. All because my father dreamed a little dream of a world where music could be as free as God intended. "War would cease to exist, and good times would be plentiful" or so he thought. Turns out, all of his work would be in vain, for he instead invented a site that is simply not good, dare I say atrocious, when compared to the countless other sites that offer the exact same benefits with a fraction of the hassle. Soon after he invented the site, my mother ran away with her tennis instructor, my brother developed a stutter, and my father was left to dwell in the ruins of his own making. So after all that, I decided that the least I could do was upload some songs my band wrote to the cursed site to be downloaded for free.



truthfully though, I'm not very good at this kind of thing, and I didn't realize it was not a user-friendly site, sorry man. Thanks for giving us a try though.

Downloading Bern & the Brights 'cause the RIYL sounded pretty good to me. I'm a sucker for female vocals.

If you upload your album to mediafire or megaupload, I'll download.
