afire love - ed sheeran. in my opinion, the best on his new album, i feel like occasionally he just pairs the right words with the right melody & the right vibe, & it just creates this amazingly connective message. it’s a hell of a story, told the way that only ed sheeran really can.
weekend - priory.
 it’s a fucking jam, an anthem for the working class who know what life is really about. i just want to chant it with hundreds of people.
your ex-lover is dead - stars.
 somewhere deep inside me, born - Sam
broken heart - dr. dog.
 this song is epic. it has all my favorite elements of a good song: catchy melodies, solid guitar riffs, lots of colorful moments where every instrument in the song is featured at one moment and very very well written.
little motel - modest mouse
 this song is my favorite song of all time. It instantly draws you in with subtle synths and guitar riffs and from there on is a roller coaster of emotion. It rocks when it needs to rock and calms down so you can hear the intensities of the lyrics.
total life forever - foals.
 foals is my favorite band for sure and this song is why that is. it’s an upbeat indie song that just sounds funky. Every instrument is playing a different riff but it oddly fits perfectly. The lyrics are perfect as well. - Marcus

POZ BandsOnBands: Paradise Fears On Andrew McMahon

by Zack Zarrillo - Aug 11, 2014

Monday means BandsOnBands, and we’re excited to be posting the new PropertyOfZack feature today with Sam Miller of Paradise Fears. The band is out on tour now and are pushing ”You To Believe In.”

In this week’s feature,  Sam talks about his love for Andrew McMahon. Listen to songs by the artist here and check out what Sam had to say about one of his biggest influences below!

From Sam Miller:

Andrew McMahon was a unique thing to happen to music. Getting signed out of high school with Something Corporate, an immediately popular “pop band in an era of punk that nobody understood,” transitioning that to a solo, alt-piano-rock project that sold hundreds of thousands of records by sounding like nobody else sounded, & then finally shedding both monikers to take his own name as an artist & writing songs of reflection. What amazes me most is that he’s been able to keep & grow an audience through all of the projects, because his art feels like it’s coming from a real place. Like he had to write the songs because he was trying to understand himself, & because we’re creatures of shared experience, we can come to understand ourselves through his search.
