077: Friday Jams | Anberlin – Ready Fuels

Anberlin. One of those bands that I was introduced to in high school but never came to enjoy until college. And then honestly, after their second album I never really got around to their newer music. I don’t think I’ve ever classified them as a favorite, oh sure they were probably on the list of bands I liked on Facebook circa 2006, but they were never in heavy rotation.

But, whenever one of their songs comes on Pandora I always sing along and know more of the words than I do for a lot of songs I listen to on the regular. Maybe it’s because they’re one of the best live shows I’ve ever seen.

It was freshman year of college, and a friend of mine from down the hall had asked if I wanted to go a few days earlier. We bought tickets, but the day before we found out the show might not happen – the front-man had come down with the flu. Yet day of the show was still on so we walked down to what was then the Beta Bar (now the Engine Room?) and jammed in with everyone else. The band that opened for them, Showbread, was this insane screamo-noise rock mash-up band that performed with a fairly intoxicating energy. But then Anberlin came on. And even though they were touring in support of their (at the time) newest album, which I had only listened to once or twice and the fact that the lead singer had a 100+ degree fever they just absolutely killed it.

BONUS JAM: The first Anberlin song I ever heard – Glass To The Arson

054: Friday Jams | Twenty One Pilots – Holding On To You

It’s Friiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiidaaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyyyy. This band, Twenty One Pilots, has been blowing up around here. Definitely give this one a listen.

And here’s another track from them I love.

BONUS: HAVE YOU HEARD THE NEW DAFT PUNK SINGLE?

047: Friday Jam’s | Fall Out Boy – My Songs Know What You Did In The Dark

As an old school fan of Fall Out Boy I never know what to expect from these weirdos, especially after they put up Infinity On High and Folie A Deux the latter of which I never even listened to. But, their first two albums, Take This To Your Grave and From Under The Cork Tree have always held a special place in my musical upbringing. So, when I heard they had a new single out I was naturally full of trepidation. Could this be a glorious, hot return to their roots or would it just be a continuance of their steaming record of garbage.

Well, somehow it managed to be both. Their new single “My Songs Know What You Did In The Dark” is truly hot garbage, in that even though it is garbage, it’s still hot and I can’t stop listening to it. Enjoy.

040: Friday Jams | T-Pain – Take Your Shirt Off

In honor of the fact that I’m going to a very fancy party for work tomorrow night, I thought I’d share one of my favorite party songs. Also, this is for all my Tallahassee people. And my Korea people.

037: Friday Jams | Fang Island – Daisy

One of my all time favorite ‘have a good time’ songs.  I recommend listening to this at least an 8 or higher.
