I Can't Fall Asleep

I wrote this at four in the morning when I couldn't fall asleep... I'm not usually a fan of piano-oriented pop-rock. Bands like Keane and the Fray haven't really helped my opinion of the style either. But there have been a few bands that have stood out to me, including well-known bands like Straylight Run and Mae. Another one of these bands is the Hush Sound. I've been putting off listening to this band ever since I heard they joined the usually pop-punk roster of Fueled by Ramen/Decaydence records. But this band is nothing like labelmates Panic! at the Disco or The Academy Is... I would compare them more to pre-Prepare to Be Wrong Straylight or softer bands such as Eisley. As I write this I'm listening to "Unsafe Safe," a song of their 2005 release So Sudden, which is helping me get a bit more sleepy. But there's also a peppy, up-beat side to the band. Pretty much everybody should take a liking to "Crawling Towards the Sun." The catchy-as-hell keyboards teamed with equally-timed guitar and drums during the verse of the song should appeal to pretty much anyone. After listening to only a few Hush Sound songs, I've become a happier person. Don't let the FBR stereotype steer you away from them. The Hush Sound - Crawling Towards the Sun The Hush Sound - Momentum Remember the Drugstore Cowboys? I made a post on them a couple months ago. Well since then, they've signed to Lujo Records (once home to the Fall of Troy). And guess what else? They're opening for Depeche Mode, along with She Wants Revenge, on May 21st at Nissan Pavillion! If any of you live in the DC/MD/VA area, I highly suggest checking this show out. If you've already seen the band, then you should know the high-energy show you're in for. For Depeche Mode fans who haven't heard of them, well you're in for quite a treat. For those of you living elsewhere, the Drugstore Cowboys will be embarking on a tour with the Devil Wears Prada that'll probably hit a town near you. The Drugstore Cowboys - Penguin Tuxes at the Disco Bar The Drugstore Cowboys - These Clouds Will Never Catch Us Alright, maybe now I'll fall asleep. Good night everybody. -Adrian
