Must Have Music: Dashboard Confessional 11/13/2009
Dashboard Confessional just released their new album "Alter the Ending." I recommend the special 2-Disc set. The first disc contains a full-band version of their album, while the second features each song in stripped-down acoustic form. It's a great album for Dashboard fans.
Paramore: Brick by Boring Brick 09/28/2009
Paramore, one of the few female-fronted bands I like, is releasing a new CD soon. The new album is streaming on Myspace right now. I think it's pretty good. My favorite track so far is "Brick by Boring Brick." Head to their Myspace page to check it out.

I'm going to keep this one short. I'll also openly admit that I'm probably gonna catch a lot of slack for this, but I'm going to go with it anyway. Check out NeverShoutNever. It's a young kid from Joplin, MO. He comes with an early Dashboard, Secondhand Serenade acoustic style, but he's getting a full-band poppy side to him now. Not only does this kid make great music, but he's all over the internet in terms of communication. He updates his sites daily with pictures, videos, news, blog, tweets, and the like. Check out my blog on "Finding the 4th Dimension in Music." He found it.
