Something to hear

While all three members of the Grit Music team prepare for finals, we felt it was important to provide something to appease your listening sensations this week. Hopefully we will each garner enough time for a few posts, but if not, have no fear. The summer will be lush with music updates, concert breakdowns, and CD release synopses. Also, look for Adam to post a summer hits mix in the coming weeks complete with all the music you will need to keep cool or sweat your way through the summer.
I wanted to give a heads-up on an album that I think needs some of your attention. Paper Route, a Nashville indie band formed in 2004, released only their second full length album, Absence, last week. Much of Absence sounds like a modern day band backed by Depeche Mode while some songs give me a Postal Service taste. An obvious rock feel lingers at the forefront of the album, but that 80's dark electro sound dwells in the background waiting to expose itself. "Wish," "Carousel," and "Enemy Among Us" give the album a very strong start, and although the album wains a bit in the middle, I think that you will find the album very enjoyable. The song "Are We All Forgotten" has been added to the playlist and you can check out more of their music at their myspace page. The album is available for $7.99 at amazon.
