So if you were
listening to 24 Hours of Awkwardness at midnight, you might
remember that Jordan & DeNero did an hour of JUST new stuff. They
didn't quite know what they wanted to play first, but luckily I
was there. We played 10 Years - Beautiful. Before the track
played, I spoke a little about them and their new album. Today,
I'm going to repeat myself and go a bit more in-depth, as well as
mention some other CDs that have been either just released or will
'''''10 Years''''' -
'''Division''', ''Release Date: May 13, 2008''
Years has become a favorite band of mine. I discovered them in
the summer of 2006 - I believe through the music cable channels
while on Long Island for the summer. I immediately bought ''The
Autumn Effect'', their first publicly-released album and the
rest was history. Singles include ''Wasteland'', ''Through
the Iris'' and ''Waking Up'' but if you ask me - almost
every song was capable of being a single and I'm sure it'll be
the same way on the next album, Division.
They are considered
an alternative hard-rock band. They are often compared to TooL
(one of my top 10 favorite bands) as well as early Incubus (my #1
favorite band). In the past, they have opened for bands like
KoRn, Deftones, Breaking Benjamin, Smile Empty Soul, and
Sevendust. Now don't let this confuse you as they aren't as hard
as KoRn or the Deftones. Not at all. In fact, it's hard to even
compare their sound to TooL or even Incubus. They really have
their own sound. I suppose the fact that their sound is very
complex is like how Tool songs are also very musically, and
masterfully, complex. Lead singer Jesse Hasek also has a
hauntingly melodic voice that is just ripe with emotion in every
song - the emotion behind their music is perhaps what makes it so
good. For more tastes of 10 Years, you can check their
even youtube. Look out for Division to be available online and in
stores on Tuesday (or pre-order it!) and check out their previous
effort, The Autumn Effect, if you decide you like them. They're
so good, I had to put them on in iTunes, right
'''''Barenaked Ladies''''' - '''Snack
Time''' - ''Release Date: May 6''
Barenaked Ladies are
back with more fun songs to rock & sing
'''''Filter''''' - '''Anthems For the
Damned''' - ''Release Date: May 13''
With Stone Temple
Pilots back together, it meant the end of Army of Anyone and so
Richard Patrick is back with his original band with a new
'''''Local H''''' - '''12 Angry
Months''' - ''Release Date: May 13''
The rockers who
brought you mild hit singles ''Copasetic'', ''Eddie
Vedder'' and ''Bound For the Floor'' in the past has a new
CD with 12 "angry" tracks, one for each month
Doors Down''''' - '''3 Doors Down''' - ''Release
Date: May 20''
Single ''It's Not My Time'' shows that it
might once again be their time.
- '''Arm's Way''' - ''Release Date: May 20''
''The Arm'' has found its way on to wVBR airwaves for you to
hear. Enjoy more music from the French-Canadian Indie band in just
a week and a half!
