Straylight Run, Rooney, Finch, The Postal Service.


Straylight Run- Hot Tubs and Tool Sheds


Rooney- Daisy Duke


Definitely those two. Straylight Run has a lot of great songs, after you listen to that song above, find "Mistakes We Knew We Were Making" and "Existentialism on Prom Night". Great great stuff, and the lead singer isn't bad to look at.
Strength does not come from physical capacity. It comes from an indomitable will.

Jacks Mannequin is coming out with a new album, it makes me sad that something corporate is pretty much dead, but JM is awesome since andrew is the front man.

I recommend my favorite band, Alkaline Trio. All of their CD's are different from each other and their new one, Agony and Irony, is very good. My favorite of their's is when they hit a nice mix, it sounded new, but it had their old edge to, From Here to the Infirmary.
