The comparisons for that American Wolf song are actually not that far off. Sounds like Manchester Orchestra trying to play dream pop. Pretty cool.

If anyone would like to review "Myriad" by American Wolf, i'll send you a copy of it for free

AReiss 12/02/12 03:55 PM

Not mentioned here, but you guys should definitely review Great Lakes USA's new LP and the new Run, Forever LP.

Amongster 12/02/12 06:03 PM

The American Wolf tune is great sleepy time music. The Tales Of Kamanakera album they released earlier this year was pretty dope as well.

Tani Ghaffarsedeh is worth checking out if you're into the scores from LOST or thriller movies. I really think she would flourish composing for film and television, and I mean that as a true compliment.

Emo Headache is some of the worst and most confusing music. Don't bother clicking the link.
