Empire! Empire! (I Was A Lonely Estate)

Haven’t been on top of my blogging duties lately. Fortunately, that doesn’t mean I’ve been slacking on listening to new music.

The recommendation for the week is a band that’s taking me back to highschool – when “emo” was this new term for slow, cathartic and really aesthetic music. My, how times have changed.  Empire! Empire! (I Was A Lonely Estate) – yes, that’s the whole band name – have taken notes from bands like Penfold and Mineral.  And now that the weather is getting chilly, it’s a good time to don a sweater, grab a good book and throw the band’s latest album, What It Takes to Move Forward on your iPod (or record player)!

The band is one of a few on a really great new emo record label called Count Your Lucky Stars.  You can check out the label and buy records from Empire! Empire! here.

Here’s my favorite track on the album, “How to Make Love Stay”.
