No one found this article interesting enough to chat about...

Anberlin - Cities This week’s Album of the Week goes to the new Anberlin album, Cities.

It’s not a huge departure from previous albums but it definitely rocks harder.

Favorite tracks so far are Adelaid, Hello Alone, Dismantle.Repair., and slow-rocker Inevitable.

Artist of the Week: Angels & Airwaves

No one found this article interesting enough to chat about...

Angels & AirwavesI, like many folks, went through a punk phase in my musical tastes and bought every crappy punk bands album I could get my hands on. Blink-182 was in that list. An occasional Blink-182 song will make it’s way through my iTunes Smart Radio Station and I can’t help but wonder how I loved listing to them…it just hurts my ears now. Maybe I’m getting old…or picky.

At any rate, I say all that to say that Tom DeLonge (former Blink-182 frontman) has a new band…and they don’t hurt my ears. Blink-182 had a nasty breakup in the past year and one of Tom’s reasons for jumping ship was that he wanted more out of music. He wanted to product and create something that people could really relate to on a deeper level…something that moved your heart.

That new ’something’ is Angels & Airwaves and their debut album We Don’t Need to Whisper.

I have to admit that I was a bit skeptical when I heard who the founder of the band was, but don’t let that deter you. These guys really do have some great songs that aren’t your typical radio-rock-power-pop-punk. Quite the contrary, actually.

I can list to this album straight through (all 50 minutes of it) and not skip one of them. It’s just that good.

Go give it a listen.
