Artist Of The Day: A Great Big Pile Of Leaves

We've been big supporters of A Great Big Pile Of Leaves for years, having interviewed them twice in the past three years, so it's unsurprising that I was very highly anticipating the group's sophomore LP and Topshelf debut record You're Always On My Mind. Three extra years as a band plus more advanced studio work has added the necessary to polish to their sound to push the band to the next level, cementing the release as one of the stronger ones to be put out so far in 2013. The fluttering guitar parts have been pushed further into the front, turning the record into a showcase for guitarists Peter Weiland and Matt Fazzi (formerly of Taking Back Sunday). The band's signature groove hasn't been abandoned either, and only helps insert both energy and a catchiness that will make You're Always On My Mind rule your summer evenings. Be sure to grab the album on Topshelf Records, and stream it on the label's Bandcamp page.
