Random bands have started to follow me on twitter and tumblr, and it does amazing things for my ego. In this segment, we talk about the bands that have followed me this week.
Their Tennessee roots leak through the pop rock exterior. There's a very classic American rock base to their sound that I wasn't expecting on my first listen. I can tell their music is supposed to be very emotional, very pleading and needing, but it doesn't give those feelings back to the listener. The classic mistake of telling instead of showing. The classic mistake of not paying attention to the way the vocal melodies interact with the music and making them too symmetrical to grab your attention. There's nothing wrong with the songs, but it's a band to listen to passively, not actively.
Verdict: Radio friendly, but I'm no radio
