Manchester Orchestra- 5 Stories
I figured in honor of Manchester Orchestra's new album coming out today (it is amazing if you haven't heard it) I would post some old stuff. 5 Stories is the an ep released when singer Andy Hull was calling Manchester Orchestra a solo project. That being said, most of the ep is acoustic and has a sort of Decemberists feel to it. It's definitely not up to par with their other releases, but there are a few good songs here ("Marked Unknown", "Goodbye to the Liars"). If you're a die-hard Manchester Orchestra fan or just a fan of simple acoustic, charming songs, this is definitely for you.
1. The Girl With Broken Wings
2. I Am A Book, Torn
3. Marked Unknown
5. Goodbye to the Liars
You can get their new album here. I would highly recommend it. Mean Everything To Nothing is my top album of the year so far.
