I was recently given a new album from my brother. He and his wife were living in Albuquerque, NM when they caught wind of this band nonchalantly passed this gem to me.

The band is Leiahdorus, composed of Jason Smith, Fox Fletcher, Darla Van Winkle, and Ryan Goodman, and their newest album is "Ode to the Builders". This is the third album released by the band and it is a stellar compilation of what music was meant to be. Crisp and clear drums, followed up with creative synth, melodic piano, and lyrics that go deeper that your average band. It is most certain that Leiahdorus is no average band, and after having possessed their album for the past few weeks, they have quickly become my new favorite band.

The album seems to tell a story; beginning with the song "They Have Eyes", lead singer Jason, instantly captivates the listener with his beautiful artistry on the piano and smooth, pure vocals. As the album progresses, the listener is introduced to heavier themed songs like "Forward Blindly", back to the passion of "In 20 Minutes The Lights Will Change", to one of my favorites "Tristessa (Waltz In Bb)". The album comes to its greatest culmination with its final song "We Have Burn", which by the time it has finished it is very likely the listener will play the album over, and over and over......

There is not a disappointment on this entire album. The music and lyrics are creative and innovative; something music has been missing out on for quite some time. Where most bands succumb to the trade-uniqueness-for-popularity thought process, Leiahdorus does not. And it is for this fact that "Ode to the Builders" needs to be apart of any music lovers collection. Additionally, I would dare submit that if this band is recognized nationwide within the next few years, the American public will have passed over one of the greatest bands of all time.

I usually don't stick with a band for long, I have seasonal favorites, but Leiahdorus has been in the top of my list since I first heard them six years ago. This album is definitely their best so far. I would define them as indie synthepop (think owl city mixed with a hint of synthasizer/electronic).
