Bands You Should Check Out, No Matter What
He Is Legend
This was inevitable. I can’t run a music blog and not give my infinite appreciation to He Is Legend. And I believe they do fit the title of a band you really should check out, no matter your genre preference. I’d have a really hard time even labeling them with a singular genre. Over the course of their discography, they’ve made a name for themselves as a hard-rock band with metal, blues, and southern influence, and they manage to have a completely distinctive sound while none of their albums are remotely similar. With 4 full-lengths released, there manages to be a He Is Legend album for every mood. I truly believe that anyone who loves music OWES it to themselves to listen to He Is Legend.
This is completely accurate.
Joshua Topolsky:The fiscal cliff looms. Wars rage around the globe. Apple Maps wasn’t everything they promised.
Yes, there are reasons to despair. To doubt. There are reasons to worry and wonder, and if you’re unconvinced or unsure that there are troubles in the world, you can always fall back on familiar, modern malaise or good old boredom. It’s so easy to worry, and it’s so easy to get bored. It’s easy to go dark.
But you shouldn’t do that. You should be excited. You should be ecstatic, overjoyed, energized, invigorated. You should be hopeful, because there are also reasons to feel hope, and if you’re down in the dumps about some pressing problem that’s threatening humanity — well, that should be a good reminder of how much work it takes to make things good. And that the work is worthwhile, and necessary. And you should know that good work is happening all over the place —particularly in our little corner of the world.
Particularly when it comes to snapping 1s and 0s back and forth. Particularly when it comes to dreaming up the future.
This is actually very inspirational to me right now.
