It’s been a wild and amazing ride being on tour with Jerad Finck these past three weeks. We played shows in Seattle, Portland, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Paso Robles, San Diego, and tonight is the final show in Missoula, Montana. We will be booking his spring tour soon, so give us a shout if you want him to visit your area. In the meantime, welcome back to another edition of Get it or Forget it. We got more than 50 new requests in the past few weeks, so it’s gonna be a busy run to the end of the year.

Review: Americana music is one of the fastest growing genres today, and that’s due in no small part to the amazing music being generated by artists like Jangling Sparrows. Their music is upbeat and fun, with great songwriting and lyrics, and plenty of that good old down home musical sound of guitars, fiddle, steel and soaring vocals that truly capture the Americana sound. Paul Edelman has outdone himself with his lead vocals, coupled with amazing harmonies. You can also hear the zydeco influence throughout the album. We think this is one of the best Americana bands we have heard this year, and would love to see their live performance. Our favorite tracks include “The Party Ain’t Over,” “Burnin’ a Hole,” “One Good Piece of Advice,” “Great American Limbo,” and “Cheaper Down the Road.”
Recommendation: This one is a no-brainer. You NEED this one in your musical library, so run out and Get it. Now.

Review: The Warbly Jets are sure to take the indie rock world by storm with this debut self-titled album, chock full of amazing guitar riffs, great vocals, and well-crafted songs. From the first notes of “Alive,” it becomes quickly clear that this band has come to rock, and will quickly draw in a myriad of fans of rock and roll. The awesome tunes continue with “The Lowdown,” and don’t stop until the final note of the album. This one is a great candidate for the repeat button, as each track builds on the momentum created by the previous track. It is no wonder why they are getting massive critical acclaim from tastemaker station KCRW in their native Los Angeles, and have already garnered considerable airplay on Sirius XM.
Recommendation: We strongly recommend you catch Warbly Jets when they go out on tour. In the meantime, Get this album by any means necessary.

Review: At one time, the “Hotel Cafe” sound filled the indie music charts with names like Sara Bareilles, Ingrid Michaelson, Colbie Caillat, Charlotte Martin and Elizaveta. We are proud to announce that Elizabeth and the Catapult are rekindling that sound and bringing it back to indie music. Her vocals are supreme, with catchy hooks and a bright upbeat feel that is missing in much of today’s music. This is a deeply personal and introspective album, and we are so glad to be able to share in it. We still can’t get the sound of the first track, “We can Pretend,” out of our head, and we are happy for this earwig. This is another album destined for the “repeat” button, and we could not be happier. The band is planning on taking their show on the road to celebrate the album release, and we strongly encourage you to catch their live show. Our favorite tracks include “We Can Pretend,” “Underwater,” “Ambrosia,” “Magic Chaser,” “Method Acting” and “Better Days,” but in actuality, there isn’t a weak song on the album.
Recommendation: Don’t delay – Get this one TODAY!
