Let's be honest. When it comes to any form of media except books, I'm not the go-to person. (Anyone looking for a good read should check out Inkheart, by the way.) That said, there is a band you should immediately check out.
The Sunset Limited.
You need to Facebook them right now. Or go on Soundcloud. Whichever you prefer. And get on that, because they are AWESOME. My personal favorite is hands-down 'Reach a Ruin', if anyone wants to know.
If anyone out there likes Nirvana or Pearl Jam's Riot Act-type material, you'll probably like them.
So shoo. Go listen.
