Listen To...

Right now, I'm listening to Augustana's 2005 CD All The Stars And Boulevards, which only seems to be getting recognition right now. Some songs, especially "Hotel Roosevelt," are reminiscent of Our Lady Peace, except a little lighter, brighter, and, that most damning of words, dare I say it, commercial. But that's in no way an insult. In fact, lead singer Dan Layus makes the sometimes pointlessly angry reposes of OLP's Raine Maida seem so much more appropriate and approachable, in a way that still doesn't entirely cater to adolescent girls. Just give it a listen.
