    Their opening act is killing it on tour right now... DEFINITELY check out Strange Talk if you don't get to catch them live! Their album isn't out yet on iTunes but if you preorder now you get 6 free tracks!

    @inspiredbubbles their production, their lyrics, Maja's delivery of said lyrics, the artwork... it's all pretty tacky and embarrassing. Living In America + Dying To Say This have this youthful, spunky, clever sound, whereas their later efforts sound over-thought (Crossing The Rubicon), under-thought (Something To Die For) and over-produced. they've sacrificed their whole appeal for gloss. I caught their show here in Montreal in October and it was fantastic yeah, in a live setting I remember why I fell in love with em, but even then the new songs left me feeling kinda bored.
