Bands You Love, Have Heard of, and Should Know
Drive Thru/Pure Volume
Bridging the gap between the traditional compilation record and the emergence of new media is Bands You Love, Have Heard of, and Should Know, from Drive Thru Records and internet music showcase site Purevolume.com. 25 CD tracks and 120 MP3 tunes give terrific value for the money and allow unknown bands such as The Goodbye Celebration to sit proudly alongside such punk-pop heavyweights as Fall Out Boy, Midtown and Matchbook Romance.
Highlights include Jack’s Mannequin’s outstanding “Kill The Messenger,” the vibrant “Saturday” by Fall Out Boy and the epic rock of “Can’t Suspend It” from The Juliana Theory. But the unknown bands give the established bands a real run for their money, with Firescape and The Hanks showing plenty of promise.
