Days Away - Ear Candy for the Headphone Trippers

Days Away's first release on Sargent House, Ear Candy is quite impressive, with a lot of energy packed into it's EP-size. Compared to Mapping..., their instrumentation has grown, as has their post-production. A more distinct indie vibe reverberates throughout the album, which supports Keith Goodwin's progressive pop style. This being their first foray musically since their split from Fueled by Ramen, hopefully it is just a taste of what's on the horizon. Standout tracks: "I'm Sorry I Told You All My Problems," and "I'll be Lost."

Definitely too short of an album for an final album as a band. (when the early november called it quits, they went out with a 3 cd, 35+song album of new stuff) All tracks are solid, and a few are much more awakening and outgoing than prior albums... i only wish Days Away had more ambition to keep plugging away for another album.

castles is the new band with the singer and drummer, but definitely way too quiet after all that days away was
