    The Envy Corps… Dwell. Seriously, check it out on iTunes. Good stuff!
    I had the opportunity to hear them play a few months ago and they are truly incredible. They are known for their big atmospheric sound, attracting comparisons to Radiohead, Aqualung, the Verve, and the Doves. Last year they toured with The Killers… Pretty big stuff for a band from Iowa!
    The coolest part is that two of the band members, Scott & David Yoshimura (brothers), were in my youth group at church growing up.

    Which Citizen Cope are you listening to? I think the last two are awesome but the one with “Bullet and a Target” is def my fave.
    “Brother Lee” is a GREAT song to turn up load and sing at obnoxiously high volumes. Really, fun. My wife, my brother in law and I just did it on the way to upstate NY. “Both sides of the Mississippi yeah!”

  20. Nick Poole says:
