Truthful Tuesday #3

WOOT! I missed Misc. Monday yesterday, but that's ok. I was too tired to post. Longest weekend EVER! More on that later though.

Today's Truthful Tuesday post is brought to you by Jack's Mannequin (not really, that just sounded fun). Andrew's (Andrew McMahon from Something Corporate - a band I miss terribly, truth be told) new cd, "The Glass Passenger" is fantastical. It was supposed to be out months ago, but I'm not even complaining cuz I luuuuuuuuuuuurrrrrrrrrrrrrvvvvvvvveeeeeeeeeeeeeee it!!!

Go Here and check out some songs from the myspace page. "The Resolution" and "Annie Use Your Telescope" are both off "The Glass Passenger". "Bloodshot" is one of my faves, with "Spinning" coming in a close second. Check out this page HERE for the amazon listing where you can listen to short clips from the CD. I highly recommend it.

It just makes me happy. Andrew is such a talented musician. The vocals, the lyrics, the musicality, the piano, the orchestration; I'm probably being redundant with a few of those words but I don't even care. Awesome awesome awesome. "Dark Blue" off "Everything in Transit" is STILL one of my all time favorite songs. And with lyrics like "I swim to brighter days, Despite the absence of sun, Choking on salt water, I'm not giving in, You gotta swim" it's no wonder I love "Swim".

Plus, if you get the extended edition, you get 2 live versions of songs off "Everything in Transit" and 4 additional songs. Totally worth $11.99.

So yea. LOVE THIS CD! Go buy it now, you won't be disappointed. And if you've never heard of JM or Something Corporate, click on some of those links up there and give them a listen. I've been a fan of Andrew's since I heard SC's first album a solid 7 years ago. Go dig up "Konstantine" online, you're sure to be blown away.

Have a great day/evening everyone :)
