Mest, Quietdrive and Rookie of the Year

I just finished editing and installing Ashlei's photos onto so I wanted to invite everyone to come check them out. I'm attaching a few samples.

Richard Ashcroft is amazing. Always has been and always will be. Formed in 1989, this is a band with a long and storied past. With the release of ‘Forth’ they have made it clear that they are making an extremely relevant contribution to today’s music scene. This is the first new disc from The Verve since 1997’s ‘Urban Hymns’, and was certainly long-awaited by fans the world over. Lushly atmospheric, this is one of those records that you can listen to over and over, finding different nuances each time. While ‘Love is Noise’ is being marketed as the single this is a solid disc all the way through. ‘Rather Be’ is scheduled for a November release as a single in the UK, undoubtedly to be the follow-up here as well. In the current state of music, when The Jonas Brothers have over a million myspace friends compared to The Verve’s 53,000 it’s nice to see a band producing quality rather than just pandering garbage to the masses to seek success.
