Artist: Paper Route

Song/Album: The Peace of the Wild Things

Date Released: September 11, 2012

Genre: Indie Rock

How I heard about PR: They released an album called Absence in 2009.  A couple of people posted a song from it called “Carousel” on Facebook.  I tried to like it.  I really did, but I just couldn’t.  Fast forward a couple of years and the lead singer J.T. Daly was a guest on the Relevant Podcast.  I really liked what he had to say, but never gave his music another chance.  Then last week, he was interviewed again in promotion for the new album, and I actually checked the group out this time. I’ve been listening ever since.

What I like: I love their hooks.

What I don’t like: They have some electro influences in their music and a couple of songs were hard for me to listen to at first.  After a few spins though, I stopped even noticing.

Songs to check out: “You and I”, “Two Hearts”, “Better Life”, and “Glass Heart Hymn”
