Album of the Year (and the next)
Posted by: Austin11 from: Portland, OR on
I'm so excited and happy for these guys (and girl) that this album is finally in stores. "Illuminate" is an incredible sophomore effort, displaying nearly perfect ambient indie rock with a very therapeutic feel and tone. Vocalist, Leighton Antelman's delicate voice and keyboarist, Mindy White's soft backup vocals compliment each other beautifully. Each track is brilliantly arranged to tie into the next. And Copeland's Aaron Marsh makes an appearance on the song, "Hospital." Other stand out tracks include "This Is Twice Now," "I Woke Up Near the Sea," "Stay Awake," "One More Day," and "Now the One You Once Loved Is Leaving."
After the release of their debut, "This December; It's One More and I'm Free," two years and a tremendous amount of progression later, "Illuminate" was released back in March, although, only available via their website, live shows, and later digitally. Now that his record is widely available at Best Buy across the country, I strongly recommend purchasing a copy. It's 100% worth it.
