Music From the ole Inbox: The Exit




So, I received an email about The Exit on Tuesday. The band is from New York and both the MP3s below are from their second album Home For An Island. The trio play a unique brand of political/socially aware rock 'n roll. Songwriting duties are undertaken by both Ben Brewer (guitar/vocals) and Jeff DaRosa (bass/vocals). Their tune "Soldier" is a traditional protest song, but thankfully does not veer into preachy "When the President Talks to God" territory. The band is currently out on tour with the most suspect of characters O.A.R...but, after initially writing them off upon hearing this blasphemy, I gave their tunes a chance and they are not bad at all. Give a listen to The Exit, I forgave them for touring with one of the lamest bands in the land, I suggest you do the same. That is, until they start covering "Crazy Game of Poker"--if this happens, all bets are off.

I'd be remiss if I didn't mention this story, and will not likely have another opportunity to do so--one of my friends told me about going to a Dave Matthews Band & O.A.R. concert and seeing a douche driving a car with a customized "DMB OAR" license plate. Though "my friend" attended the show simply in the hopes of getting laid, he took such personal offense to said license plate that he felt compelled to remove the plate from the vehicle prior to entering the concert. Moral of the story: Even though "my friend" stooped to an unacceptable level of douchebaggery for even being at the show, he was able to redeem himself by reprimanding the individual with the above described license plate for making the effort and spending the dough to pay homage to the most generic couple of bands EVER.

I've seen these guys open for Muse and Ted Leo. So nothing to worry about there. They're actually pretty badass
