It takes a bit to get me wound-up regarding music. I’ll be the first to admit that I’m pretty musically challenged; but I know it’s something that I’ve been challenged to appreciate more… that’s probably why I got the hook up with my wife sue.
So, as a result of my less-than-great musical tastes, I do not know what “makes” good music. I certainly have opinions though! But after having the great pleasure of seeing The Afters play live @ The Common Ground, I feel like my musical skills got the ++ treatment.
Simply put, The Afters are uber. I really like their sound, their energy, their… whatever! I found a great review which mirrors much of my thoughts. One of their coolest shorts is “:MySpace Girl.
I found this very telling of the times… and I’m surprised I haven’t heard this (and some of their other work) on the radio.
Good times, good times. Praise God for music. What a gift!
