Transit have been playing some shows across the U.S. on their Acoustic Basement Tour. While they had a bit of free time on tour, the group performed “Nothing Lasts Forever” off of their album Young New England for Alternative Press. The video is part of AP TV’s stripped down, acoustic-style Acoustic Story series. Check out the performance here.
Typically, the response I get when I tell people that I’m in a band is somewhere between a yawn and a shrug (with an occasional smirk thrown in). To put it in the kindest light, being in a band doesn’t typically solicit the same respect that people have for other avenues of creativity such as writing, acting or painting.
A friend studying printmaking once told me that being in a band would be “too easy” and he needed to really challenge himself with his art. His remark struck me as pretty ludicrous and thoughtless (not to mention downright offensive), and though I winced slightly, I let it pass without comment. The truth is people often overlook the hard work that comes with being part of a functional and gigging band.
Framing Hanley’s long awaited third album, titled The Sum of Who We Are, is finally here! But it wasn’t without a few hiccups along the way, which would explain the almost four year stretch between now and their last release, A Promise To Burn, in May 2010. From the departure of bassist Luke McDuffee in August, to some legal issues with the album that lead to postponing The Sum of Who We Are‘s original October release date, Framing Hanley has had their hands full. But the group pushed forward and with the help of their fans donating to Kickstarter to help fund the new project, the finished product is nothing short of a job well done.

If you’ve listened to the Distillers and Spinnerette, you know the name Brody Dalle. Former frontwoman of both, this badass rocker chick is testing her hands at a solo career with her new album, Diploid Love, out April 29th – which, might I add, is an outstanding new start to add to an already successful career. As Katie Presley states on NPR’s First Listen of Diploid Love, this 9-track album “ feels like a time capsule buried in the backyard of the punk and grunge-drenched early ’90s” and I couldn’t agree more. While I was not of age to be properly educated with the likes of punk and grunge music in the 90s, there is something in this album that gives me a hint of nostalgia for the days of music past. But better late than never right?
