Nick Santino & The Northern Wind (formerly of A Rocket To The Moonwill be going out on a solo tour with This Century starting next week, and we’re excited to have both together for a new Playlist feature. Check out the Playlists below while listening to the songs on Spotify and reading everyone’s thoughts!


Ryan Adams - Sylvia Plath
This song is so creepily amazing. I’m in love with the lyrics and even though I have no idea what he is actually talking about, it’s one of the most beautiful Ryan Adams songs. 
Butch Walker - I’ve Been Waiting For This
I love everything butch makes and his newest EP “Going Home” is no exception. This song is so catchy and I love his production and drum sounds. 
Bob Dylan - Tomorrow is a Long Time
I don’t listen to a lot of Bob Dylan but this song is one of my favorites. The live version is the one I like most. Lyrics and melody are stunning. 
Dawes - A Little Bit Of Everything
I love the story this song tells. Some interesting lyrics that you wouldn’t normally hear but I love it. 
Jason Isbell - Elephant
Perfect lyrics. Sad song. But the lyrics are perfect. Such a good song. 
Jillette Johnson - Pauvre Coeur 
Jillette is a friend of mine and I’m insanely jealous of her song writing. Listen to this song and it will make you so inspired. Such a beautiful, sincere and soulful voice and the lyrics are incredible. 
Will Hoge - Strong
Incase you haven’t caught on yet, I’m a sucker for a good story. This song is no exception. Perfect song about a hardworking American man. Will Hoge is jus incredible. 
The Civil Wars - Same Old Same Old
I love sappy slow sad songs. This one is the definition of sappy, sad and slow. The civil wars are one of my favorites and this song shows why. 
Whiskeytown - What The Devil Wanted
Such an interesting creepy song. I love the production of this with the old creepy piano and the stereo panned vocals. Love me some Whiskeytown. 
The Silver Seas - The Country Life
I just love the sound of this record. This band has a cool to less sound and this song shows that.


TV On The Radio – Golden Age

On song that i like to think is reflecting on a possible golden age on the horizon which makes me super optimistic about music and always optimistic about this great band..their voices melt my mind
alt-J - Matilda
The first time I heard this it stopped me in my tracks for an entire week..it also helps that the video for the song includes odd face morphing that trips you out for a while…it also gets its story from the movie Leon which is about this assassin who saves this girl who’s parents die and is incredible in it’s own right but yeah, one of my favorite songs of the year.
Vampire Weekend – Ya Hey
Puts me in the best mood for some reason, most of their songs do but this one in particular…it gets a little bible-y but in a good way and i love getting lost in trying to interpret songs well beyond the simplicity that they probably are..this is a good song if you’re looking for that
Crocodiles – Endless Flowers
Everything about this song is pure teen dream enjoyment, feels
like your swimming in amazing sadness but the good kind (that makes sense in my head) anyways, its perfect in so many ways…just um…listen to it…you’ll get it
Paul McCartney – Ram On
My good friend Garrett Nickelsen turned me on to this gem of a record that everyone should give a good listen to called “Ram”, might be Mcartney’s best in my opinion…this particular song “Ram On” kills me every time I listen to it…so simple and yet so ahead of its time…get the whole damn record why dontcha!

POZ Interview: This Century

by Zack Zarrillo - Jul 19, 2013

image

Senior Writer Jesse Richman had the chance to catch up with This Century on the 8123 Tour for a great interview. Jesse and Ryan discussed a big label change for the band, the amount of material the band has demoed out, future releases, touring, and more. Check it all out below!

Could I get your name and what you do in the band?
Ryan: My name’s Ryan and I play drums for This Century. 

Ok. Let’s talk Biography of Heartbreak. Because it just came out – just-ish…
Just-ish… Yeah, this is our first tour on the record since it’s been out. 

How has the reception been so far?
It’s been great! We’re kind of playing a mixed set. We’re playing some songs from our old album, Sound of Fire… 
POZ: I heard you sound checking “Hopeful Romantic” up there. 
Yeah yeah, which is an older song. I guess we kind of re-invented that one. We play three or four songs off of the new album. We have a pretty short set on this tour so we just wanted to make sure that we still had songs for the people that heard the old record. But yeah, they’re going over really well I think. 

It’s been a long time coming. And then the last album was, what, eight songs? So it was in that weird Long EP/Short Album zone. 
Yeah it’s something our label at the time was pushing for. 
POZ: Yeah that was a thing for a couple of years. 
But it’s nice on this album, getting to do a proper full length. 

How was that? Were you prepared going into the studio? Did you know you wanted to have a lot to bang out? 
Yeah, we knew we needed to do at least twelve to sixteen or something to make up for how short the last one was. The last one was, like you said, the in between, where you’re not even really sure if this is an album. It ends so fast. 

You filled the gap with the acoustic thing and you had a couple of singles come out. But it had been a while since you’d put out a chunk of new songs. 
Yeah. What had happened, really, was that there was a really big infrastructure change at our label, and we had to deal with how we could get let go from that label before we could start talking about releasing another album. Because we didn’t want to get like, “Oh. Guess what? You guys have to do it with us.” So in the end, that made it a much longer process. 

How tied in was your exit with The Maine’s exit?
I think they were for very similar reasons. We both shared the same A&R. But for us it was more – there was just way too much stuff going on to actually get anything done partnered with the label for the release. They’d taken so long on the release. You have a release date, and a label has to work with you within a certain amount of time. There was a new president coming in and our A&R was getting let go. So we had no team. In the end, we actually had to get a licensing deal for a year. And then after that, the label was still technically our label, but we were pretty much doing it on our own. With having that full year, we were like, “you guys have just got to let us go.” So they did. 

Was it a mutual parting of ways in the end?
Well they agreed. We had the law involved. We were like, “You have to let us go or fix the situation.”
