Daily Recommendation 8/8/10
08/08/10 at 03:46 PM by Indoor Living
Three days in a row, and I'm still doing these somehow. Maybe I'll be a little more consistent this time around.

Today's recommendation wouldn't have happened without Christopher Columbus. Little did he know that his journey would, 517 years later, inspire one of the most interesting & passionate concept albums in the indie world. With most people knowing him as the extremely talented, yet seemingly timid multi-instrumentalist for the band fun., it makes sense that Andrew Dost's debut solo album would go very unnoticed. With an ear for melody matching the Matt Thiessens and Andrew McMahons of the world, quirky lyrics about our country's 'founder,' and a myriad of guest spots, Columbus makes for a informative, funny, and most importantly, enjoyable experience. Clocking in at just under 40 minutes, it's a fairly common running time for an album in this genre. Complete with gang vocals, spoken word, and a great storyline, this album has a little bit of everything, and definitely something for everyone. So check it out!

As always, included are a track from the album ('Welcome To Our Native Land' ft. a guest spot from fun.'s lead singer, Nate Ruess), and a link to the album's Amazon page, if you are so inclined to purchase it. Enjoy!
