First Impressions: He Is We - Skip To The Good Part EP
12/13/11 at 06:06 PM by Ryan Gardner
About a month shy of this time last year, I wrote my first review as a staffer here for - yes, you guessed - He Is We's debut record, My Forever.

So, when I heard about and received Skip To The Good Part, their upcoming EP, I was incredibly excited to hear it, as I still spin My Forever often.

Sounding just like you'd expect tunes from the adorable Rachel Taylor to sound, the tracks on this EP pick up right where their debut left off. However, what really makes this stand out is the experimentation and greater reliance on piano, most noted on the stunning "Our July In The Rain."

I'll save the rest for my review next week, but fans are sure to love this.

It's been a great week for music.

Yesterday, the 22nd
Kanye West's My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy (arguably my AOTY)
My Chemical Romance's Danger Days: The True Lives Of The Fabulous Killjoys (a solid effort)

Today, the 23rd
The Chariot's Long Live (one of the top heavy releases this year)
He Is We's My Forever (check out my review here)

If you haven't checked some of these out, I highly recommend listening to each one, especially MBDTW.

On another note, I've been debating whether or not to buy a Nook; if any one can provide me with any information/thoughts me it'd be much appreciated.

Thanks and Thoughts

First off, I just want to thank everyone for being so welcoming my first day as a staff member yesterday. I'm incredibly glad to be a part of this environment.

Also, I've been really digging He Is We's upcoming debut record, My Forever. The record comes out next week, will please fans of The Morning Of and similar artists, and my review will probably be up early next week.
