album of the day: Ra Ra Riot – The Rhumb Line

23Sep08

For Monday

Song Recommendations: Ghost Under Rocks, Oh La, Suspended In Gaffa, A Manner To Act, Dying Is Fine

Yet another indie band I know. But I really DO recommend this one. They were apparently just discovered within the last year playing bars and frat houses at Syracuse University. Known for their energetic shows. A little more musically sound than other college indie bands such as Vampire Weekend and Born Ruffians. Not that those bands are bad at all, its just these guys are different. This is their first album. Good mix of semi-upbeat material. Also include a little bit of strings section in a lot of their songs. I started listening to them on a whim and now I’m a fan and can’t wait for more. So go check out the Ra Ra Riot now.

Enjoy!
