Is this even allowed? Can you do an entire music video with scenes from a TV show?
Anyway, following my blog rules: FNL clips + good song = post.
The Forecast album, “Like a Habit” comes out 4/17, they are streaming it on fb if you’re curious.
Found at AbsolutePunk.

Can a song be acoustic if you use a Power Pad? It’s certainly not unplugged. I have no problem with it, I know some people get upset when acoustic isn’t truly unplugged, so just laugh at them and use a NES.
I really like this album. Besides this song, My Way and Don’t You made my day-to-day playlist on Spotify.

It’s calmed down, but a few weeks ago this song was stuck in my head non-stop. I think they paid off Spotify, cause it kept coming up on my playlist. Even if they did, it was worth it.
What I didn’t know until writing this post is that this is a cover. I was shocked. How could the song sound any different? Oh, you must listen to the original by Trampled By Turtles. How did they even get from there to the cover? I still like the MCS version, but I have the urge to add Trampled By Turtles to Spotify. The name alone is awesome and this song has be uber-curious.

I should have posted this yesterday. I forgot and I was punished by this song being solidly stuck in my head when I woke up this morning.
I was never really a Train fan. Meet Virginia was one of those songs that was on the radio so much it convinced me I liked it. I know they had other singles, but none jump to mind. Still, I’ll call this a solid comeback. At least a comeback to me, I can’t say for sure if they ever left.

Seems like a bunch of the music links I’ve been coming across these days are for Daytrotter Sessions. They post a few songs from a band each day that were recorded in their studio in Rhode Island. They are not just up for streaming, download too. Very cool. I had two saved to share, but I like threes, so I looked for something that would fit.
Hellogoodbye – Was their last album out in 2006? Actually, yes, their only full-length came out then. Their first EP came out in 2004 and that’s the one that hooked me. 3 of the 4 songs here haven’t been released, although I’m pretty sure When We First Met was a single or EP last year. These tracks are especially cool because they usually sound very produced.
Fun – I got the album last week after finally listening to them. The lead singer’s voice doesn’t need any help when recording. So I think they just always sound amazing.
LIGHTS – I went down the list and this jumped out as a sound that would fit right in with the other bands. That was a guess as I’ve only heard a little of LIGHTS. I’m going to say it fits.

I guess it was one of those end of the year lists that finally got me to listen to the band fun. Immediatly I thought that it sounded just like The Format. Sure enough The Format broke up last year and fun. is the lead singer’s new band. I feel stupid for not knowing this already.
The Format showed up on my iPod this morning and decided it was a good one to post.
