Back Into The Swing Of Things...

Took a little hiatus for about a month for band stuff, personal stuff, being sick, being swamped with school work, so on so forth. This is just a little dig list to get back into the groove.
1El Chupa Cobras
El Chupa Cobras

EXTREMELY solid and EXTREMELY well balanced mix of progressive/raw post hardcore with a few grindy subtleties. Will have a review up by the end of the week.
2 TheTwo Man Gentlemen Band
Drip Dryin'

Nearly perfect throwback to good ol' fashion swing, with a little bit of ragtime and bluegrass thrown in for good measure. Will also have a review up this week or early next week (nothin on the weekend, goin to see PTH on Friday and some friends on Sat/Sun).
3The Two Man Gentlemen Band
Heavy Petting

Reviewed this last week. Still digging it, though their newly released album (above) is more impressive.
Jane Doe

(generic Sputnik dig album #1) but it's really that good.
5As Cities Burn
Come Now Sleep

Bought it around the beginning of last year, thought it was pretty alright but not better than their first one. Re-listened a month ago more closely, basically got kicked in the face. Album is awesome.
6La Dispute
Somewhere at the Bottom of the River...

Awesome awesome awesome album.
7Kings Of Leon
Because of the Times

WAAOOOO She's such a charmer, oh no.
8 The Legion of Doom

Fun mashups of post hardcore and punk bands.
Dead Beat

Little late to the party on this one, oh well. So far it's pretty great.
Never Better

On the same level as Audition for the most part, but there are hints of progression that make it just a bit better than it's predecessor.
11Tera Melos
Idioms Vol. 1

Great cover EP. Didn't really expect them to cover many of the songs on here but they all work pretty well for the most part.
A Diamond For Disease

I didn't really find it that great the first couple of times through, but after a few more listens it's starting to warm up to me quite a bit.
13Have A Nice Life

(generic Sputnik dig album #2) but again, it's really just that good.
14At The Drive-In
Vaya EP

I's awesome.
15Coheed and Cambria
In Keeping Secrets of Silent Earth: 3

Every single song on this album has a moment that genuinely blows me away.
