'07's Music to Love More Than Music: Like, pt. 4

Aerotrio - Aerotrio
Crazy little Bizzaro-Jazz album that warmed my heart. Granted, jazz is not my favorite genre, which is why I only liked this album, but still, it was kinda fun.
Aerotrio - (Full album)

Nothington - All In
Angry Yell Punk, haha, I love it sometimes. This band executes it perfectly. But, if they don't mix it up, I'm afraid I won't be too interested for to much longer.
Nothington -Going Home

The Willowz - Chautauqua
Unabashedly punky, the Willowz won me over with their 2004 album The Willowz, so I had high hopes for this album. It was all right. Certainly not the same feel as The Willowz [2004], but not bad.
The Willowz - Beware

Page France - ...and the Family Telephone
A little hard to get into at first, but after a few listens you begin to hear it's charm and quaintness come through. Nothing to outrageously revolutionary, but man, there really seems to be some promise.
Page France - The Ruby Ring Man

The Color Fred - Bend to Break
Throwaway pop punk that has a few songs worthy of saving.
The Color Fred - Get Out

Agnostic Front - Warriors
The Crossover Thrash Kings are back with another blast-beat, right on par effort. It's unlikely anyone will be won over as Agnostic Front fans with this album (look to the back catalog for that), but people who know of the Front will probably be interested in it.
Agnostic Front - By My Side

Aloha - Light Works
Soft sounds from a few kids who know a thing or two about soft sounds. Nothing too crazy here, these kids don't want to incite a riot, they just want to have a good time.
Aloha - The End

Billy Talent - 666
You know those last two albums Billy Talent released? Well this is those albums again, but live. Now, I'm a pretty big fan of their pop-punk sound, those boys know how to write a catchy song, but since I'd all ready heard all the songs, and they didn't change things up too much, it only warrants a "like."
Billy Talent - Red Flag

Portugal. The Man - Church Mouth
Like a mix between the White Stripes, Muse and the Mars Volta, but not so much that they don't have their own voice, which should be pretty evident in the face that these bands all have very unique sounds.
Portugal. The Man - Church Mouth

Aqueduct - Or Give Me Death
Indie Pop at it's Indie Pop-y-ist, which is what makes it a little ... annoying at times? yeah. But it's not bad.
Aqueduct - Just the Way I Are

Pink Martini - Hey Eugene!
Lounge Jazz from an awkwardly renowned group of musicians. Some songs are a little tame and forgettable, but the good ones are groovy, and this song is hilarious:
Pink Martini - Hey Eugene

Pants Yell! - Alison Statton
Fun, once or twice. A few save able songs though. And the pose the eternal question: "What is the Police without Sting?"
Pants Yell! - Evan's Way

A Whisper in the Noise - Dry Land
Short Post Rockish songs that border on ambient. Super chill and well produced, just not the most mind blowing thing ever.
A Whisper in the Noise - True Love Will Find You In the End (Daniel Johnston Cover)
