For fans of: Everyday Victory, Longshot, Divit, Kidcrash, Daniel Striped Tiger
Genres: Emo, Indie, Screamo
Had a decently shitty day today. Mainly first world, white person problems, but still kinda shitty. So I decided to drink a few beers, get high, and break my silence on this blog by posting this. I started going to shows back in 2001 when these guys were playing regularly. Released during that same year, One Last Thing's "The Foster Portfolio" is one of the first albums to help garner (then) indie label Rise Records health dose of respect and recognition. Do not get discouraged from that tag, as Rise used to be amazing. Now they are shit. There aren't many bands out there that create this caliber of music now-a-days IMO (not saying there aren't great bands, in fact POO posts some really awesome music and you should tell your friends about this blog and these bands. Then make said friends buy their shit) but there is a passion in this recording that reverberates with me in such a way that I enjoy the music in a deeper sense. We all have those albums and "The Foster Portfolio" is exactly that for me. Can't find a preview link, but this album is legit. I strongly urge you to check it out.
