Ep. 40 – First albums of the New Year – Jan 10th, 2009

A couple days ago i went back to record time.  I decided i didn’t really like the Trenches album i had picked up so i sold it back to them at a loss.  I told the guy that i had bought it brand new from them and litteraly played it once.  He was cool about, i lost money, but he gave me 5$ for it which is better than they usually give ya.  So armed with those $5 and a little bit more cash i browsed and found a couple worthwhile albums.

“mmhmm” – Relient K

I’ve been looking for this one for awhile.  I got into this album sophomore year of high school.  It really reminds me of a girl i used to date.  They were her favorite band and i got her the album for her birthday, then i burned a copy of it off of her.  I really ended up liking it, it was a little more mature sounding than Relient K’s previous releases, and after giving it a couple spins it really grew on me.  The album has alot of catchy songs that get stuck in your head — lot of great songs to sing along to.  It’s a must-have for any one who really likes christian pop-punk!

“Love is for the Rich” – Surrogate

I heard about this album about 6 months ago and then kind of forgot about it.  I saw it in record time the last time i was in there and made a mental note of it.  I went home then and ruckus’d the album and low and behold i really dug it :).  So this time i decided to get it.  I’ve given it a fews spins since then and i am quite impressed.  It’s folk-y acoustic music from the lead singer of Number One Gun.  He said he wanted to try something different and i’d say the album came out really good.  Pretty laid back, and really enjoyable.  Give it a try!
