Framing Hanley is a five-piece outfit from Nashville, Tennessee, USA and released their first studio album in August 2007. They are getting set to release their sophomore album A Promise To Burn late May. We caught up with the band to find out what some of their favorite albums were.
Envy On the Coast - “Lucy Gray” & “Low Country”: Very talented band with tons of creativity. Lot’s of groove, great harmonies, and a very original sound. It’s not often that a band can capture the energy of a live show on a recording but that’s exactly what they’ve done and continue to do.
Deftones – “Diamond Eyes”: I can’t stop listening to the new Deftones stuff lately. This is some of their best stuff since “White Pony.” There are some songs that sound like something from “Around the Fur” days, some like “White Pony”, and a couple that could have been from “Saturday Night Wrist.” The perfect combination of Deftones doing what they do best.
Oh, Sleeper – “Sons of the Morning”: Not too much you can say to sum up this cd except BRUTAL! Not your typical metal band though. There are some moments full of breakdowns and broken chords and others with smooth, ambient, rhythms and flowing harmonies. A group of very talented musicians.
Transmit Now – “Downtown Merry-Go-Roundv”: This is a band that we had the pleasure of spending some time on the road with last year. I have no doubt in my mind that these guys will be making waves across the U.S. with the release of this cd. This is a cd full of fun, upbeat, super catchy party songs that would make even Fall Out Boy jealous.
Foo Fighters – “The Color and the Shape”: Possibly one of the greatest records of all times. This is a cd that you can listen to from front to back over and over and it doesn’t get old. With songs like “Everlong”, “My Hero”, “Hey, Johnny Park!” and “Monkey Wrench” it’s an album that can stand the test of time.
