New City and Colour!


... is pretty mediocre. And why would I update to discuss mediocracy? three reasons
1) Dallas Green's first tour for his debut release "Sometimes" was the first concert I attended. Emotional attachment
2) Brandons a slacker, so Ive taken control of this blog. Plus no one reads this so the likliness that I will recieve complaints is very low.
3) Dallas green is extremely good looking. (yes thats a reason.)

Okay, so.. "Bring me your love" is about as emo as it sounds. I'm probably the last person to critize an artist for being emo, but this album sounds like Dallas' best attempt at folk rock ( "indie" as he labels it on his myspace. Oh, if you could see my rolling eyes right now) and I hate to say it, but sappy folk rock does not mix for me.

The fact that Dallas is as sad as ever is not surprising, unless you havent heard his first release. Yet unlike his debut, the songs are somewhat distingushable thanks to the utilization of various horns and a harmonica. Im not sure if thats a good or bad thing, I'll leave that up to you. Either way the London, On. date is still sold out, which means someone needs to transport me to Toronto ( just in time for my birthday * cough*) to see him again. I'd appreciate it if he played " Confessions" ( not an Usher reference) or "What Makes a Man" ( No emery reference). See where I'm going here?

exactly.
