I have been playing their albums since the recent news and it's unforunate that besides the new EP, there won't be new music from YMAEWK.

Also. even though it was on earlier tonight, watch The Ten Commandments no matter what your religious views are because it's just a great old movie. Charlton Heston just being awesome throughout it.

Neur - Untitled EP
DOWNLOAD: http://neur.bandcamp.com/album/untitled-ep

I guess it sort of sounds like Cap'n JazZ, Drive Like Jehu, Jawbox, and Tera Melos.
Combined. With vocals that sound a little like Kings of Leon, in a good way.



Brave Bird - Ready or Not EP
DOWNLOAD: http://bravebird.bandcamp.com/album/ready-or-not-ep

One of the more unique recent indie/emo type bands. If you listen to bands on Topshelf
or Count Your Lucky Stars, you'll probably like this. The vocals sound vaguely like
old Brand New in some spots.


Betterment - Defined
DOWNLOAD: http://betterment.bandcamp.com/album/defined

Really nice sounding emo/melodic hardcore/post hardcore/whatever. Not sure who to
compare them to, but they're good.

Lucky Street. I wasn't sure at first how much I liked it, but definitely warming up to it.

Eda, your recs are always spot on. I love me some Jon Hopkins lately and that album is absolutely amazing. The mix between both is amazing.

Yeah, I'm a big fan of Jon Hopkins as well. He's great.

Glad you like the music! It's one of my top 5 favourites of the year at the moment. What other recommendations have you liked?
