|Long Drive, Need Tunes|
I've got a long, lonely drive up to a hockey tournament this weekend and I'm looking for some new tunes. List is what I've been feeling lately, recs are appreciated.
...In Shallow Seas We Sail
First introduction to this band and I love it. Really dig the way the vocals remind me of TREOS.
This is seriously one of the saddest punk cds I've ever heard. Title track, Sad Astronaut, and The Worst all kill me.
|3|| ||The Loved Ones|
Keep Your Heart
I'm always digging this cd. Along with Build and Burn and Gaslights two full lengths, prolly 4 of my most played cds.

Singer-songwriter duo from Cali. I don't know many people that have heard of them, but awesome for you if you have. Don't really have a whole lot in the vain of singer-songwriters, so those recs would help a lot.
Define the Great Line
Not a huge Underoath fan, but this has really clicked with me lately. I really dig the vocal interplay, and it's pretty good songwriting.
After the Eulogy
I just checked this out recently after owning Misery Index for a long time, and it kills. I really dig the aggressive tracks on this one, but I think the more melodic stuff is done better on Misery Index.
Everyone Is Out To Get Us
Pretty Unique disc here. Really love the drumming, and when the band chills out and is less spastic they create some awesome grooves.
Siberian Nightmare Machine
Not even really sure if I actually like this, but I've been listening to it quite a bit lately. It's been good with some bourbon after the last couple of long weeks. Stuffs pretty angry.
Blossoms and Blood
This is a really pretty. Hooks are great, and there's a lot more diversity than I expected to find.

Late Night Cinema
Took me awhile to really get into this but it's become a standard on long drives now, when I really just need to vibe out to something.
|Oh yeah, I've been listening to Architects - Hollow Crown a lot lately too. I'm not really sure why, because I think it's kind of boring...but I tend to throw it on quite a bit.|
|Flaming Lips: Embryonic|
|modest mouse - this is a long drive for someone with nothing to think about|
|Hold on, Cush, where do you live|
|Haha, thanks redsky. I live in Wisconsin, it's Badger State Games weekend and I was in hospital last year so I'm pretty stoked.|
From Zero-One Nation Under
Rikets-Anything for the Devil
Seemless-What Have We Become
Maylene and the Sons of Disaster-II
|Cool, thanks all. I'll get on these before I go. Sucks people got list happy and already bumped me off the front page. Oh well.|
|Tom McRae - Just Like Blood|
|Awesome, thanks. I've always been into the whole singer songwriter genre, but I've never really known where to start because there's a lot of shit out there. As with any genre i guess.|
|What The Toll Tells by Two Gallants|
First Recording Sessions 1941-46 by Muddy Waters
Lift Yr Skinny Fists Like Antennas To Heaven by Godspeed You Black Emperor!
|Cool, I'm yet to check out Godspeed but I'll start there. Thanks.|
|Crash Love- AFI|
perfect driving record, this was discussed yesterday lol
|Right on dude. I never got around to checking out their latest and I just sort of forgot about it. Thanks.|
