Hey guys, sorry I haven't posted in a while.  School has got me totally screwed down with work!  I'll try to post for you all more often.  So, like the subject of this says, I'm going to give you all a few of my "honorable mentions" from Vertical Fest.

For those who don't know what Vertical Fest is, I'll explain at the end of this.

 1.  Children 18:3

2. Me In Motion

3. Nevertheless

4. Run Kid Run

In my opinion, everyone who played Vertical Fest was amazing.  It was a great line-up.  These are just the ones that really stood out to me.  Especially Children 18:3 and Me In Motion.  Children 18:3 is kind of like scream-ish at points.  Amazing, though. <3  All of them are.  I hope you enjoy!!

And, this is Vertical Fest in a nut-shell:
All-day, christian rock concert.
Soooo much fun! <3

(Btw, I couldn't get the cut to work, so you're stuck with this! Sorry! I'm not LJ savvy)

Kill Paradise is a one-man band from Denver, Colorado. His name is Nick Cocozzella. (No, I'm not positive that that is his real name). His tracks are a techno, powerpop kind of thing. He makes a lot of feel-good tunes. Fast beats to get you moving. His recent album, "The Effect", is not yet sold in stores. But you can find his songs on his purevolume account and his myspace. (Both will be listed below). Many songs are available for download on purevolume. You could also buy the album on iTunes or buy a CD online.

I love Kill Paradise. It's great to listen to when you're in need of something upbeat. Or just whenever. Kill Paradise isn't on a label. It's self-produced. Try it out. (:

Asteria a five man band out of Crown Point, Indiana.  Their first album was "Broken-Hearted Lullabies And Hope-Filled Dreams", released in 2004.  Their second, slightly more popular album is "Slip Into Something More Comfortable" (I believe it released in 2006).  They are releasing their self-titled EP on the 19th of this month.   Asteria is Terrence Kline (Lead Vocals), Seth Henderson (Guitar, Vocals), Ryan Gullett (Guitar), Brandon McQueen (Bass), and Sam Henderson (Drums).

With their labeled "pop punk" sound, Asteria hits with amazing lyrics and songs that make me want to dance.  "Slip Into Something More Comfortable" has ten tracks on it.  Including The Taste, The Touch and A Lesson In Charades in which they have music videos for.  I love their sound.  They have a lot of talent that they deserve to be recognized for.  The EP samplers I've heard on their myspace promise that it will be just as spectacular as "Slip Into Something...".

American born singer/songwriter with two full length albums under her belt. Her myspace/website write up says she "...gives up all her lovely and messy bits through a blend of folk and rock, quirk and charm". And I couldn't agree more.
Her songs always have a heartfelt message, and her lyrics are endearing and will definitely catch your attention, not to mention the easy, laid back acoustic sound. Her voice is well suited to the type of music she produces, soulful and soft at the same time.
It's something I think you'll definitely like, it caught my attention within the first few seconds of listening.
I recommend you listen to;
Cry Baby Cry, from her second album The Wedding Singer and Undertaker.
and,
Scared Too, from her first album, Fell Out of Oz.

Who doesn't like unicorns? Well, one part of he music group Robots In Disguise,Sue Denim, definitely loves them a lot. Which would explain why she titled her musical side project "Sue and the unicorn". Unlike the upbeat electro of RiD, Sue and the Unicorn demonstrates a more folk-influenced sound with whimsical and sometimes funny lyrics. While her voice doesn't normally seem like something that would work for a type of folk music, it just works in it's own strange way. Unicorns do have magic to them. This magic also enables these songs the ability to most likely bring a smile to most people's faces. Though she's doing this one alone, she also gets a little help from some friends a long the way who offer a hand with some backing vocals and other extras.

Sue and the Unicorn has expressed a want to record an album some time in the future, while time allows. For now, we have their myspace and the type of video that they have for the song "Pick me up".


My personal favorite: "Like Brewster McCloud".
