some of these riyl's are all over the place lol.
roderick doesnt sound anything like copeland or lydia to me. spill canvas is a little more accurate, with worse vocals. not a fan.
i do hear the minus the bear in 'my body sings electric' though, they are pretty good.
and bedroom sons have a very cool sound to them, reccs there are pretty spot on.

A lot of stuff looks interesting today.

Tonight, the City Skyline
"RYIL" Can be a tricky thing for any band. Certain parts of each of these bands are reminiscent in our sound, so imagine if all these bands got together with a bottle of wine and had a big orgy, that's where we come in ;)
Hope you guys enjoy it as much as we do!

Nothing that looks like my cup of tea, unfortunately.

Anyone interested in a review, I've started a new website for small bands called Music With Integrity. I'll download the things that look interesting to me today and maybe give it a write up. If you want to submit, email email@example.com
, but please go to musicwithintegrity.wordpress.com and read the About section first.
