Finally, August 18. Youtube “What I Would Give To Be Australian” to find out why I’m so excited.
Jonny effin’ Craig‘s solo album comes out manana, and the tracks we’ve heard to date sound great. “Istillfeelher III” has a great vocal hook that rides in the background. The instrumentation of the song is spectacular, especially the bass line. It’s not even fair to let Jonny sing acoustic songs like “Children of Divorce” with a voice like that; even if the lyrics were awful, it would sound nothing short of phenomenal. For something different, check out “7 AM, 2 Bottles and The Wrong Road,” complete with electronics and acoustic guitar. “I have a queen; why would I settle for a fucking maid” will be that line you quietly sing to yourself everytime the track plays.
Third Eye Blind is finally back. “Don’t Believe A Word” doesn’t have me sold, but its Stephen Jenkins we’re talking about here. Out of the Vein was a solid release, but I’m looking for another self-titled or Blue. Cross your fingers.
While I only really know the MUTEMATH hits, everyone is so excited for this release that I feel obligated to check it out. Everything I’ve heard seems great.
