The Commuters.

As I mention in the show, it is a great day when I can open my email to check show submissions and I find a band as tight as this. The songs are well-written, well-produced, and the performances are well-executed. Solid acts like this are sometimes hard to find.

The Commuters do a great job presenting stories about life — perhaps from the view of living in NYC? — to which people world-wide might relate. Their use of dynamics throughout this album shows that they understand music is a direct portrayal of our own lives. None of us lives it loud, full bore, one hundred percent of the time, with much success. We have times when we get quiet, reflect, and even listen to ourselves. I appreciate a band that shares dynamics in their songs.

I mention in this episode that there must, indeed, be something wrong with the music industry when bands like this are not better known. I encourage everyone to give this band a listen, either through this episode, or by downloading their tracks.
