|I Won't Care For You, Like I'm Really Supposed To|
New Thrice album tomorrow, I've been holding off on listening to the stream. Really stoked. In other news, digs/recs?
|1||Antony and the Johnsons|
I Am A Bird Now
I know that this isn't the most well-loved band on this site, but MY GOD. This man makes the most gorgeous, emotional music I have ever heard (besides Bon Iver)
Been into this album for a long time, but it just keeps coming back to haunt me. Really nostalgic, and 156 is perfectt
|3||Tegan and Sara|
Pretty much the creepiest indie-pop ever. Their voices seriously give me chills, but songs like Nineteen and Relief Next To Me are so powerful.
Autumn of the Seraphs
I've always enjoyed Pinback, but found them fairly bland. This album is where they've finally stretched out their wings and really done something interesting.
|5||Empire of the Sun|
Walking on a Dream
Another band Sputnik dislikes, for whatever reason. Yes, the second half of this album is pretty bland, and I honestly have trouble listening all the way through, but man, Walking on a Dream, Standing on a Shore, and We Are the People are absolutely incredible.
...And The Battle Begun
Not what I expected, after having only heard their first album. The intro track alone had me hooked.
SO TASTY. Nuff said.
When I first got this album, I was really into Glassjaw, so I was finding it difficult to enjoy a band who reminded me so much of Glassjaw. But it finally clicked. Digital Bath just bowls me over.
Yes, it's generic. Yes, it's fucking AWESOME.
|10|| ||The Used|
I loved the self titled, I loved In Love And Death, I HATED Lies For The Liars. It was an extremely well-crafted album, but it just didn't feel like it had any of the emotion I want from The Used. This album is so much better than I was expecting.
|I'm curious as to how many digital copies they will sell, I'm predicting not a lot, but a respectable amount.|

|I agree on 10. First listen through I was pretty pissed, but they definitely wrote some great songs. If only it had more emotion.|
|Does the actual physical copy come out tomorrow?|
|Nah, just digital.|
|ahh, poop. Is the physical release date still set for October?|
|Something like that, I think its late September.|
|2, 6, and 8 rule. for 6 get their discography if you dont. |
|Oh, I own discogs for all these bands. And as for the recs, prophet, I already have Dance Gavin Dance, Manchester, Minus The Bear, Portugal., Regina, and Rx. :]|
