Some of these don’t even get the obligatory 200 words. Oh well.
Jenn Grant — I believe I already said somewhere that I love Jenn Grant. Let me say it again. Listening to her reminds me of the good old days when my headphones were glued to my head in college and Sarah McLachlan was always playing. Not that Jenn sounds exactly like Sarah, but they both have a slow, lush timbre in common. New album is called “Orchestra For the Moon.”
Jenn Grant — Dreamer
Jistoray – seemed like something was there, but I just couldn’t find it.
Northern Room — though they sent me a nice email, this is not my kind of music. It’s very alternative top 40, like Silverchair crossed with Nickelback and a little bit of Incubus thrown in. Perhaps you like those bands who are currently on play on your local station; if so, then check out Northern Room.
Our Last Night – Dashboard Confessional on speed. *falls over dead*
The Sharp Things — I like the idea of a symphonic pop band, and the instrumentals backing this song are totally lickable; but I don’t really like the slick 70s vibe of the vox. Still, it’s extremely professional. If you liked those slick 70s numbers, this is the band for you.
