OTS “Grow Wings & Sing” release

Grow Wings & Sing

My friends in Oh, the Story! [http://www.myspace.com/ohthestory] just released an EP titled “Grow Wings and Sing” [listen here: http://bit.ly/bOrbaO]. I’ve been going to see them for a couple years now, and the release show was definitely the best performance I’ve witnessed. It was at the Recher Theatre in Towson, thought I’d bring my camera.. check ‘em out.

Steel Train

Self-Titled

Steel Train just released their third full-length album, titled Steel Train. After going through issues with their former label (Drive-Thru), the band finally found some room to record what they actually wanted. It’s cool to see how they’ve progressed from a young classic-rock-inspired band to their alternative sound today. I posted the first (Bullet) and last (Fall Asleep) songs from the album below along with some shots I’ve taken of them over the years.

The coolest thing about this album is the supplemental cd that you can get. Jack Antonoff (lead singer/guitarist) asked a bunch of his female friends (and a few ex-girlfriends) to record covers of each of the songs on the record. Terrible Thrills Vol. 1 features covers from Scarlett Johansson, Tegan & Sara, Deradoorian, Alia Shawkat (Maebe Funke!), Rachael Cantu, and his sister Rachel Antonoff.

For those that are interested, here’s a blog Jack posted about the creation and release of the album. [http://www.steeltrain.net/site/content/making-steel-train-unabridged-version]
