Dead White Male

You guys! I have to keep y’all updated on Riley‘s music, because I love you and want you all to know about nice things. And, trust, his music is niiiiiice.

Riley and Mike’s demo, which I lovingly printed and cut and glued.

So, onward to the links! Their youtube is currently under construction, but we should be getting some videos up soon. In the meantime, you can feel free to follow them on facebook or twitter, and check out some of their songs off the demo on their soundcloud.

Okay, so you guys are probably calling favoritism or nepotism or whatever right now. And, yeah, some of my love for them might be.  But, seriously, I’d tell them if I didn’t like their songs. And I really, really do like their songs. They’re fresh and catchy as hell and just really lyrically sound with layers of meaning that you don’t usually get in catchy music. They’re a great combination of indie rock and indie folk, with hints of more driving rock thrown in. I like to say, if you need a comparison, I’d say that they have the vocals of Thom Yorke with the musical sensibilities of a combo of Elliot Smith and Jeff Mangum, with some harder elements thrown in. It doesn’t sound like anything else, though, which I think it so refreshing in an age where turning on the radio leaves you confused as to who is actually singing the song to which you’re listening.

Anyway, that’s probably enough of my bragging for now. Just trust me when I say that you should do yourself a favour and check them out. You won’t regret it.
