New Found Glory's Jordan Pundik teamed up with songwriter and author Alex Woodard for the song "Breathe the Sky" -- you can stream the song in the replies.
"This was a completely different kind of thing for me," Pundik says, referencing the departure from NFG's chugging guitars and sneering punk hooks. "I've always been into alt-country and Americana, and [the song] has that vibe. I was able to tone down my voice a bit, to not to belt so hard."

If you took Augustana and Acceptance and took away the piano, you'd be listening to Kansas City's Mime Game. While a large and ambitious comparison, the midwestern four piece released one of the most criminally unknown and under-appreciated EPs of 2013. Today we're bringing you this four track EP to your attention for you to drool over. Do Your Work is full of that great softer alternative rock we've come to love on the site but still maintains a fresh and upbeat vibe that cannot be denied. Listen to the EP in the replies.
