Bands to Watch in 2k9: The Postal Services
A lot of people ask me, "The CRLS, why don't u evr blog about new bands 2 watch, kinda like MTV?"
I figure I should listen 2 readers and blog about this new band that I think will be huge in the next 10 years.
The Postage Service is a band from Washington that's gonna make a lot of buzz this year, and not just on blogs. Their songs are rlly approachable, and they also add a lot of meaningful lyrics to their music.
Here are a few unreleased [EXCLUSIVE] tracks, with some commentary (personal):
The song "Such Great Heights" is about wanting 2 have a higher existence with some1 u luv.
"Brand New Colony" is about an alt in a mainstream world who wants 2 build a brand new cult-like compound with ur closest group of friends.
"Clark Gable" is the first song that accurately captured what it means 2 fall in <3.
I think I have finally found a band that I can relate 2 on a spiritual & social level. It's always refreshing when u can find 'some1 who can put feelings in2 words', and I feel like front man "Benjamin Gibbard" might be the modern day electronic Jeff Buckley. Some1 needs to come along and use these songs in commercials, movies, & movie trailers. And also the 'meaningful intro' to playoff games.
Do u think this band will 'make it'?
Here is their official music video for the song "Clark Gable" about an entry-level-about-2-be-altBro who is looking 4 real love.
