Feet on ground? Check. Reaching for stars? Check.

Ok, I've decided that I want to try to publish this every week. Please feel free to comment or email me with questions, comments, or DEDICATIONS! (Listen to the episode for more information about that last one :) )

The mic volume is a little quieter than the music volume, but I'll work on that for next week. It's a work in progress, folks! I hope you enjoy it!

Countdown #1

So, there's this band, Friday Mile...

There are some albums that are just absolutely fantastic from beginning to end. No songs that I would even DREAM of skipping over. I recently came across an album from a band that I'd never heard anything from: Friday Mile. The description that I read about them compared them to "The Magic Numbers, Rilo Kiley, and even Fleetwood Mac" and I was interested.

The first track "Handle It" is the ideal opening track. It has a nice, plucky piano bit and it gradually adds drums and guitar. And then the male voice (Jace Krause) comes in and it's nice enough, but then the female voice (Hannah Williams) chimes in and I'm hooked for the whole record. Each song is as good as the first track, but they all have different shades and flavors. Check this out.

You can go to the band's website and download the fantastic song "Autograph" so here's the song I've just been gushing about:

Friday Mile - "Handle It" from Good Luck Studio

You can listen to this and three other songs on their site! Be sure to check out "Lives of Strangers"!

Also, isn't the album art awesome? I just love it!

OH OH! And the album dropped nationally YESTERDAY! I have fantastic TIMING! And great CAPITALIZATION skills!
