So, Addison Road is cool. You should give them a listen, share some love, and buy an album or four.
They as a band also respond to tweets, as does their lovely guitarist Ryan Gregg! I’ve had a few brief conversations with him in the past while, and today this came up:
Then this happened:
And now I am sitting here thinking . . . THANKS Ryan Gregg, for making me think about that, for pulling me to type ‘morning view’ into my iTunes library again. Man. I love this album – I love it as much, if not more, than I did five-plus years ago when I first got into Incubus at the ripe age of fourteen.
The excellent mixes of clear and distorted guitar tones, the subtle touches of djembe. The faint and not-so-faint touches of crickets in the tracking as recorded outside the Morning View house. The ability of this band to so greatly capture emotion on different levels—depths. Brandon’s lyrics.
Also thinking: man. This is a freaking epic album. I plan to go through it song by song in blog-post form over the next few weeks.
