In anticipation of my two-day Anberlin binge next week – Sept 4 in Brisbane and Sept 5 (VIP!) on the Gold Coast – this song of the week takes us back to the early days of the band.

My favourite song from their second album ‘Never Take Friendship Personal’ – A Day Late. 

For whatever reason I only actually bought this album a couple of weeks ago, but I tell you what, it’s AMAZING. Can’t wait until the shows next week!

I know I have posted Yellowcard before, but in celebration of the 10 year anniversary of the band’s debut album Ocean Avenue and the subsequent release of the Ocean Avenue – Acoustic album (my signed copy of which arrived late last week!) I am sharing them with you again.

This is the official video for the acoustic version of Ocean Avenue from the new album. Honestly, I don’t really dig the video. I think using the crowd was a cool idea, but hearing the band sing the whole song on the album – as well as all the other songs – is far more enjoyable.

I will be seeing these guys in Brisbane at the end of September – they’re performing the acoustic album in its entirety – so watch out for a review from the show when the time comes!

I bought Paramore’s latest album on a whim the other week because it was only $10. That purchase has inspired a love for the band that I never really had before. Seriously, it is fantastic.

This is one of my favourite songs so far. It’s called Ain’t It Fun. The only video I could find was a live performance, but it’s pretty damn good!
