If someone took musical DNA from The Shins, Jimmy Eat World, and My Chemical Romance and mixed it all up, the result would be The Diggs. Kinda. But don’t worry, they definitely lean more toward the excellent dream pop sound of The Shins than the emo sounds of JEW or MCR. Pretty boy vocals, poetic lyrics, nice indie pop-rock beats, and guitar crescendos worthy of a Zack Braff film. You can buy their cd at CD Baby & read more about the band at their website.
One of my few album purchases this year was A Girl Called Eddy’s eponymous cd and I highly recommend. The album is beautifully melodic and intimate from beginning to end. Erin Moran’s warm, velvety voice makes even the most heartbreaking of lyrics sound sweet.
