Simple Math

Posted in Love, Now Listen, Tunes on March 2, 2011 by readmoremusic

No Internet and 3G laziness means you don’t get a link, but go find Manchester Orchestra’s new single “Simple Math” and tell me you aren’t changed. I can’t really say anything more than that.

The album comes out May 10, best day-before-birthday-present ever!

Now Listen: Birthday Boys

The Birthday Boys are an amazing band from Peterborough, ON. The dualing guitars and lead vocals allows one band to span a wide range of the rock ‘n roll spectrum. Graeme’s deep, bluesy voice powers through soulful rockers, whereas Jordan’s grating growl destroys the band’s ragers. Jer plays bass and chips in on background vocals, and Matt holds it down in the back on drums. They played a killer show in Vancouver last night and my ears are still ringing.

Check out their myspace HERE. The Drug and Apostles are my jams, but listen to them all!

“30 Songs in 30 Days” is an ambitious undertaking by the band to write a song every day on their current tour. You can follow their progress at the “30 Songs in 30 Days” website.

Here are a few of my favourites:
