I've mentioned this before but anyone who's read this site long enough knows how I get when I find a band that I think truly deserves to be huge -- I'll beat that crap into the ground. If you take nothing else away from these silly Listening Posts this year, it should be this: Immediately go to iTunes and download the entire debut album from the Epilogues.
With a powerful, passionate sound that's somewhere between Manchester Orchestra and Silversun Pickups, they are absolutely one of my favorite up-and-coming bands making music right now. And this is without a doubt the best song I've heard from them so far.
This is the kind of song that would have the power to change the way the world around me appeared, were I to be listening to it on my iPod while walking through New York City. The massive, expansive chorus is what I can imagine throwing myself off the top of a building to in slow motion.
Yes, it's that good.
Please, support these guys.
This is Saboteur.
