I would like to introduce to you guys some of the...' mostly unheard' artist which I think is in need of an introduction. At least at my blog here. No, I don't think the number of people who listens to them in Malaysia could reach a ten, let alone a hundred. Anyways, I think they deserve an introduction here.
The band that I would like to introduce is Los Angeles's very own The Like.
Formed in 2001,the band consists of Elizabeth "Z" Berg (guitar/vocals), Charlotte Froom (bass/vocals) and Tennessee Thomas (drums/vocals). Their full length debut album, Are You Thinking What I'm Thinking ? was actually released in 2005. Yes, it was released 3 years ago and to be honest I only heard of them last year. Oh, it was introduced by another not so well known artist, Nina Gordon.
This band actually, is doing pretty well in the United States. Apparently they've opened for big names like Muse, Phantom Planet, Kings of Leon and even Tori Amos. One of their song, (So I'll Sit Here) Waiting was even featured in the movie Thirteen starring Evan Rachel Wood and Nicki Reed (A movie about hormon, angst,drama etc). Anyways, that song is particularly one of my favourite songs in the album. In fact, that was actually the first song that got me hooked on The Like.
Anyways, this is one of those rare bands that people should get to know about. Among some of my favourite songs in their debut EP is (So I'll Sit Here) Waiting, Too Late and We Are Lost. Of course, take my word for it...I love the whole album. Try it guys...
Oh, you would love them if you listen to...Veruca Salt, Tori Amos, Sarah Mclachlan, Anna Nalick..
"An all girl band?Really?....mmmm"
