I remembered PTX being a decent indie rock band, who were lumped into the nascent Midwest emo scene (they were from Madison, I think). For whatever reason, I hadn't felt the need to listen to this since moving here, but it was nice to play today -- the EP sounds essentially like a lo-fi demo tape, and it is hard to deny the energy thrown into these songs. This record is one of those things you hear and think "this band is gonna go somewhere" -- there were a lot of bands I heard back in those days that I would apply this to. I don't know if Paris, Texas ever made it anywhere -- I doubt it, since I haven't heard anything from them in ages -- but this EP showed a lot of promise. It certainly makes me wish I had the 7" that had some song I really loved back in the day, that I played every day for awhile in my sophomore year of university. …

Favorite artists beginning with an individual letter of the alphabet. Symbols and numbers are lumped into one category to make 27. Individual artists who actually go by name will go by their last name.
...And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead
Coheed & Cambria
Queens of the Stone Age

If you don't care, go ahead and tell me how much I just wasted your time with my nonsense. If you do care... well, I don't see why you'd care about me, but awesome.
I count Lupe Fiasco as L because it's a stage name. If that doesn't fly with you, replace with LL Cool J
