First Listen: Death Cab For Cutie, 'Transatlanticism (10th Anniversary Edition)'

In this reissue, the original 2003 album is packaged alongside a revelatory set of demo versions.
Meghin Moore's insight:

I'm looking forward to this reissue. This album is one of the few that has influenced my life directly. 'Transatlanticism' will always be one of my favorite albums, and it's so strange to think that I've been listening to Death Cab for Cutie for over ten years now.

The genres span from indie-rock, to folk, to post-hardcore to some heavier hardcore bands. Give it all a try.
Meghin Moore's insight:

I'm not too fond of the direction Victory Records has gone over the years, but up-and-coming labels like No Sleep and Topshelf have been putting out some consistently awesome pieces of music! Plus the Topshelf sampler has over 70 songs on it!

Meghin Moore's insight:

Aaron Sprinkle's fifth solo album was released today, and is a solid album overall. I know him as a producer for many bands, but never really listened to his solo stuff. I was blown away by it. I also like that he was one of the producers on the classic Acceptance album, 'Phantoms,' and covered their song "So Contagious" as a bonus track on this album.
