I listen to a lot of Alt Nation on Sirius XM -- or at least I used to up until recently. I think my choice to kind of go cold turkey on the station is that most of what it plays right now is boring and indistinguishable, probably because most of what's popular in the alt music scene right now is boring and indistinguishable; it's all a lot of twee hipster anthems.
I'm gonna sound like an old guy here, but I really kind of consider the new Emperors album to be a breath of fresh air -- mostly because it actually harkens back to a time when melodic rock dominated the alternative landscape.
I really can't get enough of this record at the moment.
Here's Be Ready When I Say Go.
