Favorite Mellow Stuff

I primarily listen to heavy stuff or harder/edgier rock like Incubus, but this is some of the stuff I like to kick back and listen to.
1Andy Mckee

No deion is needed.
2Animals As Leaders

A good portion of their album is heavy, but I love how subdued it gets. Tosin Abasi's writing is so graceful and delicate.
3Dashboard Confessional

Don't have too many songs from them but I dig the first two albums, Swiss Army Romance and The Places You've Come to Fear, because they were primarily just Chris and his guitar. He's whiny, but he's good at it.
4Death Cab For Cutie

Gibbard is one of my favorite lyricists of all time. He's amazing at saying a paragraph's worth of information and emotion with one line, i.e. "She holds a smile like someone would hold a crying child." Brothers On A Hotel Bed = one of my favorite songs of all time.
5Dustin Kensrue

I'm a bit of a Thrice freak so this stuff is just a fun listen. Ultra simple but effective.
6Jon Foreman

His Fall, Winter, Spring, Summer EPs took a while to grow on me but I'm listening to them more and more.
7Justin King

Great technicality and composition. His youtube videos are epic.
8Nickel Creek

These guys can very easily annoy the hell out of me, but they have a few perfect songs like The Lighthouse's Tale.
9Pedro the Lion

I love It's Hard To Find A Friend in its simplistic impact, and I'm fascinated by how Control is easily one of the most intensely angry, bitter albums I have and yet its music is so subdued. Options is one of my favorite songs of all time.
10Snow Patrol

Driving yet subtle. One of my favorite vocalists as well.
