So I'm slightly obsessed with a couple of albums right now. First of all is the new album by "fun." titled "Aim and Ignite". fun. is comprised of Nate Ruess from "The Format", Jack from "Steel Train" and Andrew Dost, who I hadn't really heard of before. I have fallen in love with this album and listen to it all the time. They came to SLC and had a concert at Kilby Court on Tuesday the 8th. It was VERY sold out, and we didn't have tickets, but patience and perserverence won out, and we got in. Plus we met the band, had witty banter and felt mega ultra cool. The concert itself was BRILLIANT! Nate is a genius, Jack is just awesome, and I have a great new appreciation for Andrew. He is a "Whale of a Guy" for backstory visit his myspace at: myspace.com/andrewdost ).
Any way, Andrew was super cool, and I purchased his solo Album: "Columbus", in vinyl. Since then I have been listening to it constantly (3 times all the way through today at least). It is so fun, and clever, and historical, and Nate Ruess makes a guest appearance, and one of the songs is in 7/8 timing which is pretty dope. So I have a crush on Andrew, mostly because he is a crazy talented, super nice, and all around impressive person.
Do yourself a favor and listen, purchase, borrow, whatever, but get your hands on these albums and experience the wonder!
