Why you should be loving on The Format ...


The Format is an incredible band from Tempe, Arizona and they are one of the greatest bands out there today. I accidentally stumbled onto them during a frighteningly homesick period of time about two years ago when I would buy a cd just because the band was from Phoenix. I heard my share of crap music but it was worth it to find The Format. They have a new album coming out this summer and here's some tracks and demos from it ...


1,000 Umbrellas (acoustic demo)

Pick Me Up (demo)

The Compromise (demo)

Wind That Blows (demo)

She Doesn't Get It (demo)


Now ... here's the thing ... The Format, much like a less pussy versions of Dashboard Confessional, is currently known for being very moody and very acoustic and very young and very shaggy, a sort of band that when you go to one of their shows there's a large amount of teenage girls bouncing and singing along to every single song. Good music, all in all, and you get a good sense of that with the demos.


But the two tracks that appear next off of their new album ... makes them sound an awful lot like Queen.


And that's a tit bit frightening.
