There’s your five for the week, but I must mention another “band” I stumbled across this weekend. The Sonic Executive Sessions aren’t really a band in the traditional sense, but a group of studio journeymen that record songs during their down time. With an obvious nod to Jellyfish, these guys need to put out an album right now! Check out their MySpace page and give them a listen.

Five By Five: Week One

It has been brought my attention I have a tendency to…ramble. Well, duh. It’s going to happen. Can’t be helped. Edit shmedit! But to show I am not without listening skills, I give you Five By Five. A weekly(?) installment of five random albums I enjoy described in five words or less*
