Ooh ooh me too. I am totally going to have to go with Ted Leo & The Pharmacists, The Divorce (band from Seattle, most like...Spoon?), and Bleu (Boston-area singer/songwriter). Uh...consult my top forty otherwise, I'm just kind of basing this on my top albums of 2003. And I bought the Tsar album back in 2000(1?) and was disappointed. And Lennon Murphy makes me worry if she can put out a good album, though "Brake Of Your Car" was pretty supergreat. And "Echoes" sucked. **1/4 out of *****. Yeah I said it.

You wanted the best, you got... Out of Context Quote of the Week.

"This coming from the man with the YOU EAT COCK in his signature." (StaggerLee)


I'm still not entirely convinced that the Polyphonic Spree ISN'T a cult. But they're pretty good.

Rapture: Great, but their singer's voice is somehow even MORE... erm... of an acquired taste than Alex of Ima Robot.

Chevelle's first album was okay... "Mia" flogs anything else they have or will ever put out, but the rest is meh.

Also let me remind you all of Radio 4. Their "Dance to the Underground" is all over the Mitsubishi ads... it's the one where the guy looks like he's singing along to the song, but he's really just repeating his shopping list.

I liked pretty much every song on their first album. Though Mia is quite possibly one of the best singles in the last ten years.

On the line of good Indie female singers I recommend the singer for goth act Switchblade Symphony. Why? She's operatically trained! Sure it might be an acquired sound, but dammit is she technically sound, and impressive

Buuuuut anyway, hell you can always find a decent or good band near you, but you might not like the genre, I've posted earlier, but I can count several local groups around here who always put in good shows, and almost always pack the venue they're in.

Props to Retrovertigo for mentioning the Dismemberment Plan. Emergency & I is one of my favorite albums.

I hate to appear as if I'm dipping into hyperbole, but I think it may well be the perfect album. That's what made their next (and last album), Change, such a huge disappointment. They went from a masterpiece to something even Spinal Tap would consider scrapping. :)

Last year, everyone was hating on an American Idol contestant named John Stevens. Though only a teenager, his mellow singing style harkened back to the days of Fred Astaire.
