I keep writing myself into ruts.
I'm 23 going on 24. Coming up in a time when Drive Thru ruled and everything on Vagrant was an instant classic, There are literally dozens of records that I could put on now that take me back to that time. Over time, the number of those albums that I can listened to now has diminished to only a handful because of my current taste. I can remember long drives to and from gfs houses or just long drives to nowhere where I would listen to and memorize what seemed like hundreds of songs. Those were some of the best times: just me, my car and my book of CDs. I never needed anything else. I could go on and on and I might expand on my experience later in regards to shows, but I wanted to share some artists and some albums that I can still throw on and take me back:
Anything by Saves The Day, obviously
Are We Really Happy With Who We Are Right Now?
Alkaline Tro, specifically From Here to Infirmary
Emotion is Dead
Say It Like You Mean It
What It Is to Burn
All Killer No Filler
From The Depths of Dreams
Light a Match, For I Deserve to Burn
