Meanwhile, on the outskirts of Denver...
Wilderness - (k)no(w)here (lala) - I sorta like it in a 80's alt-goth-pop revisitation, but I have a hard time believing they really want to vocals to sound that way.
Frog Eyes - The Bloody Hand (lala) Carey Mercer is a guy that I believe whose exaggerated strained vocals sound exactly the way he wants them to sound, and I am inclined to agree with his assessment. Frog Eyes register as awesome on song titles alone "Our Lordship has Devised a New Billing System" and "Silence But For The Gentle Tinkling Of The Flowing Creek" are but two glowing examples.
Blind Pilot - 3 Rounds and a Sound (lala) - Wavers between "nice enough" and "lovely" committing to neither category. This would sound great in your college girlfriend's apartment, but then, what wouldn't?
