"This is quite the debut from a band featuring members of Deer Tick, Dawes, and Delta Spirit. The resulting product is a wonderful collaboration that features some great songwriting. Try: "Million Dollar Bill""
"Their self-titled album was a hard one to follow, but they seem to have successfully done it. This album is certainly distinct, but keeps their sound in the same vein. I hope that they have a long career. Try: "Blue Spotted Tail""
"I always eagerly look forward to a new Explosions in the Sky album. This album does not represent a radical departure from their sound. With that, if you know how you feel about their music, this album would be unlikely to change that. For me, they don't seem to fail to create some beautiful tunes. Try: "Postcard from 1952""
"The latest from TV on the Radio continues in the same stream as the excellent 'Dear Science.' I would say that this album incorporates more of a coherent atmosphere than the aforementioned release. Try: "You""
"Peter, Bjorn & John seem to make albums that are very much different from one another. This one is no exception. This album is much more rock driven than their previous two releases. For me, this was a bit of a drop-off from 'Living Thing.' Try: "May Seem Macabre""
"This album produces decidedly different tracks than previous releases. However, I'm just not sure that they can muster the same quality found on their first two albums. That said, it is still an enjoyable listen. Try: "Taken For A Fool"
"This is a much different album from their prior efforts. They seem to be throwing in more of an indie style and even experimenting with some electronic elements. If you're not familiar with them, I wouldn't recommend starting here. Try: "River Jordan""
