I used to keep up with Eisley but they had a new album come out this year and I just realized it last week. I kinda of fell off after their last album didn't grab me. I still don't know how I feel about this new version if the band but I did like this song below right away. Their album "Combinations" is coming up on its 10th anniversary this year, I love that one.
Today it hit me, this song by Eisley [ "They all sourrounded me" ] reminds me of Zelda and Dark Souls
On listening to "Currents" As a long time fan and connoisseur of this band I knew this day would one day come: Stacy's song writing has grown in such leaps and bounds (see Sucre) that it makes the Sherri songs stick out like a sore thumb. The first two Sherri are nonsense. The sequencing doesn't do it any favors by putting these bad songs between Album highlight by Stacy and even one by Chauntelle! Thankfully the bad streak ends on the Strings heavy second half of the album which is were the above song comes from. Usually with Eisley I like absorbing the music as an album and try to trust their song sequencing but this was not ideal. The aforementioned Strings Heavy songs are sandwiched by "classic/old" sounding songs that are just a tad jarring b/c it moves them backwards instead of forwards. Verdict: COMBINATIONS is still their best album. That's how I judge their albums, "Is it better than Combinations?"

I wish i could afford the level that lets me ask for a cover song. At the first Eisley concert I went to Stacy played a few bars of Radiohead's "everthing in its right place" and ever since I've had the idea that they could do a pretty cool version of "Karma Police". I want the Past Demos release b/c I'm really hoping it includes a newer studio version of "Blackened Crown".

+ Eisley - Trolleywood: SXSW - The purpose of SXSW is to let the industry know what we're doing, stir the pot, showcase live music, let key people hear tracks, see what the interest level is... either find a label we really believe in or release this ourselves. It's really that simple. I could have written a book. Be glad I didn't. Please come if you can. You can get in line, pay - without a badge. We're stoked over this line-up. Kashmir is one of our favorite bands. Our SXSW contact set this up because she knew this. Also, the Rocketboys are good friends. They're great. I've heard great things about Barcelona.
