Song of the Day: "Floorplan" by Youth Rescue Mission

>> Thursday, May 26, 2011

I am still constantly falling in love with Youth Rescue Mission. I shared them as a band of the week earlier this year, and because I am lazy, I am just going to reshare some of the key points from that posting.

Youth Rescue Mission, a Seattle band, by way of Montana, has me all in a tizzy. This group of siblings make noises to die for. I keep trying to string together other artists to give you a good description/comparison of style/sound, but all combo's fall short. Yes, you can hear a bit of The Head and the Heart, a dollop of Blind Pilot, a tad of Hey Marseilles, and a smidge of Choir of Young Believers, but in only the littlest of amounts. They are distinctly their own. And I am loving it.

There is one difficult lesson I hope this band learns before they proceed onto their sophomore effort. They are much much stronger when they allow Hannah to take the lead. Now I know, that if I were in a band, I would be hard pressed to let my sister stand up front. But, on this record, the songs that shine the brightest, are those where she leads the pack.
