Recently Bought and Enjoying
Room Noises - EisleyRoom Noises by Eisley has got to be one of the most melodic and lyrically pleasing albums I've heard in a long time. From the guitar and piano combo-ballads like Telescope Eyes, to the harmonious lyrics of Marvelous Things and Plenty of Paper. This is the album to buy/download this month.

Heard on Launch
Straylight Run - Straylight Run Existentialism on Prom Night is the only song I've heard in full on this album, but because of it I want to buy it already. Straylight Run is an Emo-rock band whose tracks are, mostly, intelligent, mildly uplifting and bitterly depressing. That's not to say the album is depressing. I'm sure it isn't. The message behind some of the lyrics, however, seem to reflect the aforementioned statement. This also appears to be an album worthy of buying/downloading this month.

In Between Dreams - Jack JohnsonI recently previewed this album and one of the soon-to-be hit songs on it entitled "Sitting, Waiting, Wishing." As far as I can tell, this album is a must have for any Jack Johnson fan, the smooth rhythms and guitar rifts are just as pleasing as they were the first time around. It will be interesting to see what else this album has to offer. This album hits stores in March.

I'm telling you, Straylight Run's "Sympathy for the Martyr" is the best song ever written.

Though "Mistakes we both knew we were making" is running a close second. :)
