I would just give Separation another go. So many feels. I agree though with the live vocals :/. That show was the first time I really heard Kevin Devine and I really, really liked him.
I'll give Separation a fair shake and a full listen. Check out Kevin Devine's new albums Bubblegum or Bulldozer. Bubblegum would be the closest match to Balance and Composure, so I'll just judge you're full music tastes off one band, try that one. :)
