    Wow Breathe Carolina? Really?

    I got a demo CD from them at one of their tour dates. I guess I should check out the album.

    Agreed. I loved the EP, and this is even better. One of the albums I was most looking forward to this year.

    ----------------------------

    I think I'll just wait until the end of the year and do a definitive list then. I'm lazy. :lol:

    It's so weird seeing bands I saw when I went to see Artist Vs Poet have been turning up in peoples' lists.

    Breathe Carolina, Ivoryline, The Cab... I can't think of any other ones at the moment but wow. Guess I'll be checking out BC's stuff again.

    I actually could never thank you enough for bringing up Artist Vs. Poet in this forum. I never woulda got into em if you didnt. I love their EP. Im not exactly digging their new single but I will have to see what the new Ep in total sounds like. Im hoping it will be better then the one single they released so far.
