Title: Backseat Goodbye
Post by: general_apathy (Chloe) on June 22, 2007, 06:59:58 PM
So, uh, this guy is really good. He has a song that mentions Ben Folds called "Good and Bye (Home)". The lyric is the opening line that says, "here's to Ben Folds and car drives".

I really like his music. You can tell that he's definitely influenced by like Bright Eyes and The Rocket Summer, and even Ben Lee at times. Also a little Tilly & the Wall. I don't know. I just really like him, and I think he's worth checking out.

here's his website:

and his myspace...:

The song that got me into him was "Technicolor Eyes", so definitely listen to that one.
Enjoy!

So, BG has some of his new songs for free on his Purevolume site, if anyone is interested.
