Really cool (but rather angsty) album I’ve been listening to quite a bit lately.  I’ve still got to check out their other albums and plan on getting on that soon.  For now, enjoy this one and I apologize for the lack of posts and rather short summaries lately.  I’ve been kind of pressed for time for the past while.

Really awesome new(er) band I only just recently heard about.  In all honesty, they could be the next Weezer.  Here’s to hoping they don’t go on the same path downward as Weezer did and end up releasing an album that has Lil Wayne on it.

Really great album by a really great band.  One of my personal favorites from Middle/High School, and sounds just as good (if not better) than it used to back then.

This is, to put it bluntly, a great album.  One of my favorite mainstream alternative albums, in fact.  Our Lady Peace is a Canadian rock band, headed by singer Raine Maida.  Their first four albums and their most recent are godly.  The themes vary, and most are based on real life events.  Whether it be about individuality, a girl the band knew that died of a brain tumor, people exploiting religion for personal gain, , or even about an unpopular  girl who goes crazy and kills everyone at her school.  I really enjoy this album and I think our readers might, as well.  So give it a try.  You might like it.

A new band from the Portland, Oregon music scene.  Really awesome dance rock.  Not much else to say about them other than that they’re very catchy, and definitely worth a download.

Harvey Danger - Dead Sea Scrolls

For my first post on this blog, I was going to share an album that I really, really loved. Something I could call a personal favorite. But then I realized that this album, despite being released so recently, is already exactly that. Harvey Danger is a band that you may regard as a one-hit wonder, but you couldn’t be more wrong. Since their inception over 15 years ago, they’ve released three excellent studio albums that were progressively more thoughtful and mature, and are concluding with this 2009 release of b-sides, covers, live tracks, and studio demos. And even though this record was sold only at their final few shows (yes, they just broke up), it’s still something that can stand firmly on its own as an album, and as a testament to how much more attention this band should have received. Listen to this, and don’t be surprised if you happen to fall in love with Harvey Danger.
