Artist: The trickily named .listen.
You had me at "heavy Angels and Airwaves influence." What, Blink-182 is too old to remember? Kids these days...
Best Song: Well, this one was a tough one, but I am going to have to go with "Defiance." The intro to the song carries with it a lot of promise, all of which comes crashing down once the over-nasally vocals kick in. The rest of the song follows a pretty standard alt-rock formula, complete with a warbling, held-note chorus ("yooooou," "throoooough"). Although the man behind .listen has an entire album ready, he is still actively searching for a drummer and a bassist. These vital components would very much help flesh out the band's rather primitive sound.
