The new debut album by "The Thomas Confession" was recorded with Dryw Owens ("consider the thief", "from indian lakes"), mastered by Brian Gardner ("Linkin Park", "Pendulum")!!! The sound was influenced by "shiny toy guns" and "the killers". So its definitely worth listening to!!!!! Also, you can check out their single "Put Your Mind To It" here: http://soundcloud.com/thethomasconfe...r-mind-to-it-3

More info on the Midnight Door release "Tomorrow Was"... It's a post-punk collaboration with cellist Luke Janela and features the drumming of Adam Carson (AFI) on over half the album. Luke Janela has performed and recorded with Chuck Ragan (Hot Water Music), Aaron Ross, Alela Diane, Mariee Sioux and many others. The album also features the vocal backups of indie songstress Molly Allis (Huff This!)

It's an interesting hybrid of sounds, and it's rare (never) to hear the cello in this rock/punk/electronic context. It's also interesting to hear Adam Carson playing with another band.
