  • Any word on a new album ever?
  • last.fm is telling me I've listened to this guy 7000 times now. Wow.
  • @blakeandcamp The Weatherman is a stronger album as a whole. This Empty Northern Hemisphere is fantastic, but it's not nearly as consistent.
  • @blakeandcamp let's just agree to disagree then ;-) all of the albums are amazing, but The Weatherman has some real gems. Living Proof, Time Will Tell, All Shades of Blue and She Always Takes It Black... I have to admit in the last two years I've listened more to those four songs than all of the songs on the previous albums combined (maybe with the exception of Unwritable Girl). After listening to all the albums probably 100+ times, The Weatherman is still the one I'd prefer. Can't wait to see if the next album can raise the bar even more!
  • @whipy It's got some great songs on it (Second Chances, Amsterdam) but as a whole it's not nearly as good as This Empty Northern Hemisphere IMO. Still an enjoyable album though.
  • The Empty Northern Hemisphere is instalove for me. Long time since i've found such a perfect album. It makes me happy
  • What's with everyone dissing The Weatherman? The more I listen to it, the better it gets. It's become my favorite album of the three over the past two years.
  • The Weatherman is alright but you guys should check out This Empty Northern Hemisphere!
  • Im in love <3
  • The Weatherman is gorgeous. How this guy is not famous is dumbfounding.
