Meg & Dia - Something Real
I saw them at a show last night with Angels & Airwaves, and they were extraordinary with an obscene amount of talent. I've heard a bit about them here and there, seen them on TV, but never really gave them a second thought, and that was a huge mistake on my part. Their ability to harmonize and rectify their tone across multiple genres of songs showcases a diverse range, from the biting edginess of "Monster" to the refined vocals of "Cardigan Weather." Their finesse does not stop with their vocals, as their overall musicianship is just as impressive as their singing. Last night, Meg transitioned into "Santeria" while playing "Masterpiece" which is completely amazing. I highly, highly recommend this album. Standout tracks: "Masterpiece," "Tell Mary," and "Cardigan Weather."
