If I had to pick an era of jazz, it would not be pre-jazz, but that being said, jazz is the music of America and it's the most American music form of all except for maybe hip-hop. So I think him appealing to that and appealing to '70s funk and R&B, rather than just trying to get another hitÖ I wasn't expecting him to be so particular about the feel of the album from a musical standpoint. I thought he was going to have a lot to say lyrically, and the music was going to not be industry-dictated but take more of a backseat to the lyrics. And by no means was that the case.

Since the new Sleeping With Sirens album dropped yesterday, people have finally gotten the chance to give it a full listen. Well, it didn't take people long to realize that the song "November" sounds an awful lot like We Are The In Crowd's "Long Live The Kids" from their Feldmann produced Weird Kids. Head to the replies to compare for yourself, but it's pretty blatant to me.

We could not be more excited to announce Run For Cover has signed the legendary mewithoutYou. We will be releasing the bands 6th LP (produced by Will Yip) this summer, which is the incredible follow up to 2013ís Ten Stories. The bandís forthcoming LP is a carefully focused and personal album that spans the bandís impressive career. From the frightened intensity of Catch Us For the Foxes and [A -> B] Life to the subdued and urgent Ten Stories, the band has truly created an album that complements and expands on their incredible 15 year existence.
A Will Away are releasing a new EP called Bliss on March 20th via Quiet Fire Media. You might remember when we premiered "Cheap Wine" earlier this month, and today we are streaming the whole EP. It was mixed by Gary Cioffi (Transit, Misser) and mastered by Kris Crummet. The opener "Play Dead" sounds like The American Scene vocally mixed with Listen & Forgive-era Transit musically, while "My Sitter" is a slow burner that is one of the most impressive songs the band has written (it should be a favorite around here). "Ten or Eleven" is the most intense song here, with the chorus approaching screams. Give the whole EP a listen below. If you like what you hear, you can pre-order it.
