    The Envy Corps... Dwell. Seriously, check it out on iTunes. Good stuff!

    I had the opportunity to hear them play a few months ago and they are truly incredible. They are known for their big atmospheric sound, attracting comparisons to Radiohead, Aqualung, the Verve, and the Doves. Last year they toured with The Killers… Pretty big stuff for a band from Iowa!

    The coolest part is that two of the band members, Scott & David Yoshimura (brothers), were in my youth group at church growing up.


    You've probably heard at least half of these. But I'm getting ready for Lollapalooza this weekend, so I'll just give you everything I'm listening to right now that wasn't on your above list.

    Which Citizen Cope are you listening to? I think the last two are awesome but the one with "Bullet and a Target" is def my fave.

    "Brother Lee" is a GREAT song to turn up load and sing at obnoxiously high volumes. Really, fun. My wife, my brother in law and I just did it on the way to upstate NY. "Both sides of the Mississippi yeah!"

    You guys must listen to the latest Hillsong live recorded album - "This is our God!" It would have to be the best ever from Hillsong - I love the DVD too!
