Foo Fighters: ‘Wasting Light’ Review

foo_fighters_wasting_light

Artist: Foo Fighters Album: Wasting Light Label: RCA Finding a great rock album among the sea of space oddity costumes, country tartlets and electronically altered hip hip vocals is like trying to find a diamond in the rough.

band-of-horses-infinite-arms-cover-art

Band of Horses has been, for me, one of those bands that I liked, but never really got into in depth.  They’ve always been kind of “The Shins Lite” for me, with Ben Bridwell‘s vocals settling somewhere in between James Mercer‘s whine and Built to Spill‘s Doug Martsch‘s lazy warble.  Sure, “The First Song” is on the tracklist of my ...
