1 & 2: Motion City Soundtrack- Making Moves & Go
Yeah, I know. Shocker. But, Idk. GO didn’t do much for me when I FIRST heard it. This past month changed my mind and made me love it. But, of course, this was after my list was completed. However, the Making Moves songs are perfect. They’re just so good. I wasn’t planning on explaining myself for any of these honorable mentions but, it’s Motion City, y’know? I have to. Forever my favorite band, but they didn’t make the final cut for me.
3. Vacationer- Gone
4. Foxing- Old Songs
5 Ape Up!- Kemosabe
6. Grounded- Sinlong Plethora
Tallahassee friends! Please check them out and literally every other band from that city.
7. Sirs- Sirs
8. Sigur Ros- Valtari
9. Duck. Little Brother, Duck!- Don’t Take Our Filth Away
10. Godspeed You! Black Emperor- 'Allelujah! Don't Bend! Ascend!

NEW SONG YAY
We’re playing some shows next month! The shows page will be updated with the information. I’m super excited to announce that there’s a new house in Tallahassee that we’ll be playing at. It’s at our house (dare I say: THE Echo Base)! Fingers crossed, everyone, that everything goes well and we could keep doing shows here. THERE’S HELLA LIMITED PARKING, unfortunately. So, if you plan to attend, try to car pool or bike. We’re going to try to get our cars out of the way to make as much space as possible. Here’s the event page I made, RSVP wit’ it doe: http://www.facebook.com/events/396087700446262/
We’re playing with our home boys Reverie and Basebourne. They’ll be on tour with Henrietta, from Orlando! So, come out, chill, and treat yo’self.
As mentioned, links to the other shows we’re playing are on our Shows page. It’s also on our Facebook, if you’re cool wit’ it.
See you soon!
Jermaine made a show poster for our date with Sirs! Woooohooooo! Come out, let’s hang.
I met Reggie at the benefit show that we played for The Outlet. Super, super nice dude! He was very kind and had wonderful things to say about us. I met him a few days, maybe weeks, before he went out on tour. Today is his last day of tour and I’m kicking myself for not sending him a few bucks to support him while on the road. I just finished listening to his EP, Change, and listening to the title track four fucking times. I can’t get over how amazing this song, and the record, is. Beautifully recorded! This guy has so much talent and is definitely going places. Brb, listening to this song FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE.
Check him out on fb and his bandcamp: reggiewilliams.bandcamp.com.
I can’t wait for him to get back so I can cop a physical copy of this. Holy shit.
I spy with my little eye us playing on the 27th with De Nada (!), Au Revoir, and Pan at the house on Caliark St.! This is going to be an awesome string of shows. The next day is Duck Little Brother Duck!? Whaaaaa?! Super excited. Come out, let’s hang, I’ll give out free CDs again.
