Mixed Bag

Acoustic UK duo Mesh-29 has put up a song for free download at Myspace. The song is taken from the duo's debut album Dead Machine and I'm seriously thinking of ordering it, because the rest of the songs (streaming only) sound pretty fine too.
+ Close My Eyes

US alternative rock band The Situation list a string of classic rock bands as their influences and the track Cherry from the self-titled debut album (released April 18) does indeed sound like a mix of several other bands (Stone Roses etc.). Found the band on Myspace, but I can see that several other blogs have mentioned this band already.
+ Cherry
+ The Best Prescription Pill Available Not from the album, but quite good.

Ordered the EP Og Haanden Paa Skulderen yesterday by one of my new favorite bands Sidste Ambulance. And albums by Built To Spill, Le Sport and Secret Machines should arrive in my mailbox very soon.

Weird or stupid? I was browsing through my "friends" at Myspace and I guess I have a few too many, because I couldn't remember that I've ever befriended an indie/alternative band from Derby, UK called Leon. I've probably just accepted their friend request, planning to check them out later. As it turned out, "later" was today and I'm glad that I finally "discovered" the lads. The songs are very catchy and especially the brilliant Be There is an immediate favorite.
+ Be There Excellent!
+ Getting Into You

And finally a confession:

Have to admit that I like Third Eye Blind. I actually think that all 3 songs below are very, very good! Don't tell anyone OK?
+ Blinded (When I See You)
+ Never Let You Go
+ Semi-Charmed Life

3EB is actually pretty good. Don't be ashamed.
