Music news from the past week:
The Wonder Years recently stopped by the Agora in Cleveland to perform for The AP Sessions. They played “Melrose Diner” and “Washington Square Park”, both from The Upsides. Even without a crowd, they bring the energy and passion that they’ve become known for. According to this tweet, their new full-length is already done. Expect big things from them in 2011.
Purevolume released their Top Unsigned Bands Of 2010 list. Claiming the top spot is Indiana pop-rock outfit, Asteria; a band that’s been around since 2003. Why they’re just now getting noticed? I have no clue. Going down the list, I only recognized one other band: #6, The Narrative. Suzie Zeldin’s voice is fantastic. Outside of those two, I don’t see any big plans happening for the others.
Go Radio unveiled the album art and track listing for their upcoming full-length debut, Lucky Street. I can’t help but think of the Cartel song (“Luckie St.”), but I doubt the two are related. Because of Jason Lancaster, this album should be one of the best to come out in 2011. They’ll be on the entire Warped Tour to support it. Whatever you do, don’t overlook these guys.
By now, everyone has probably heard about the falling out between Paramore and the Farro brothers. In this blog post, the Farros explained their reasons for leaving and aired a lot of the bands dirty laundry. An official statement from the remaining members was posted on the band’s website. Sounds like Paramore will continue to be a band, but who knows how long will they last with those pieces missing.
