Artist Spotlight - Empire! Empire! (I Was a Lonely Estate)
After a brief discussion with a friend about what the album meant to him, I decided to give it a shot. The album is gorgeous, emotional, and unfathomably engaging. The lyrics, to be quite frank, are brilliant in their poetic prose, matching perfectly with the music. I loved it, and for the past several weeks have found myself returning to it regularly. In an odd twist of fate, the band had a contest to get as many likes as possible for their facebook page. After 500, they promised to post their entire discography for free. At the dawn of my discovering of this band, every thing they've released thus far is at my finger tips. Absolutely perfect.
So for all the uninitiated (trust me I was once just like you), give this band a shot. You have absolutely no excuse. Follow the link and thank me later.
