Staff Recommendations: January 29th, 2012

Posted by: Jason Tate (01/29/12)
Helllooooo, Sunday. Today we've got an extra special addition to our Sunday Recommendations as we've asked Zach Lind (drummer for Jimmy Eat World) to join us and add in his recommendations for the week. So, check those out below with all of the other staff and then hit up the replies and let us know what you are currently spinning. It's a great time to discover new music.

Zach Lind of Jimmy Eat WorldThere are a few bands over the past few years that have caught my attention that I feel have been overlooked. Wild Light's "Adult Nights" has been one of my favorite records during the past several years and it seems like no one really talks about these guys. "Adult Nights" is a gem that warrants many, many more ears. As far as I know, this is their first and only album despite being together since 2005. Another band I've really been digging is Royal Bangs. Again, awesome songs that deserve more love. I particularly like their album "Let It Beep." They remind me of a more melodic, song-driven Trans Am. That probably doesn't make any sense but that's what I hear. One more artist I'd like to mention is Gregory Alan Isakov. His most recent album "This Empty Northern Hemisphere" is fantastic. Music made for laying under the stars.

Don't forget to follow Jimmy Eat World and Zach on twitter.

Jason TateThis week was a complete Drive-Thru pop-punk-athon. I spent most of the week listening to the bands from my youth: The Starting Line, Something Corporate, New Found Glory, and FenixTX were all in heavy rotation. Was just that kind of week I guess. I also spent some time listening to Frank Turner's The Second Three Years - which is full of great, great songs. Didn't really have much time to check out anything new last week. Maybe next week.

Feel free to follow me on twitter for daily ramblings.

LuedaClams Casino is somehow the perfect winter music. It's all I want to listen to when I'm snowed in like this. His Instrumentals album and Lazerbeak's Lava Bangers have taken over my life lately. And if you're not in to instrumental hip-hop, perhaps you should check out another band that I love: Caveman. One of the best new indie-rock bands out there; expect to hear about them a lot more in 2012.

DreI've been digging Clams Casino's Instrumentals a lot lately as well. In addition to that, Young Sinatra from Logic has been high up on my list. Watch his video "Mind of Logic". Of course, I can't go without reccing a hardcore punk album. That spot would have to go to Code Orange Kids and their recent signing to Deathwish Records. I wish all of these artists much luck and more for what they have to contribute to my life, their scenes, and music in general. I'll definitely be filming two of these artists this year, so I'm stoked for that.

Hit me up on twitter and I'll shoot your shows + videos.

Alex DiVincenzo The Drive-Thru Records appreciate thread reminded me of how great/underappreciated Day at the Fair was. Be sure to check out The Rocking Chair Years if you haven't. While you're at it, give Lanemeyer - one of the bands from which DATF was born - a listen too. Also spinning The Higher's first two albums in light of yesterday's break up announcement.

Kyle HuntingtonThis week I've been listening to a lot of Breton who sound like a cross between Foals and Massive Attack. Their combination of floaty, ethereal vocals with hints of math rock, post rock and electronic beats are truly infectious. I highly recommend checking out their videos for tracks "The Commission" and "Edward The Confessor" whilst downloading their free EP, Blanket Rule.

Christian WagnerOn a long ride back home and I continually go back to a band like Midtown and realize that Living Well Is The Best Revenge will transcend genres, scenes, and fads to be a lasting album. Also been jamming a lot of The American Scene.

Deborah RemusI've been listening to lots of Lagwagon this week, Hoss in particular. Our interview with Joey Cape will be posted tomorrow.

Ryan GardnerBeen on a huge Chiodos kick lately.

Sean RizzoThis past week I've been looking into a lot of hybrid IDM/metal bands with decent results. Check out Amogh Symphony, The Algorithm, and The Flashbulb.


Note: If any band members would like to participate in our guest spot for recommendations on Sundays, feel free to hit one of us up for an open spot.

I recommend seeing MuteMath live. I saw them for the first time on the 26th and they blew me away. Seriously one of if not the best live show I have ever seen. It was an amazing experience I will never forget. Even if you dont like the band I recommend seeing them live.

Also I agree with Zac. Wild Light is really under rated. They havent released something in almost 3 years though :(. They've been quiet since 2009 ended.
