Manchester Orchestra

7:30 p.m. Tuesday, May 3. The Pageant, 6161 Delmar Boulevard.

In 2009, Georgia-based unit Manchester Orchestra put out the best rock release of the year with Mean Everything to Nothing. It's a tight, concise record, indebted to classics like Weezer's Pinkerton and Nirvana's In Utero, yet sonically adventurous à la Radiohead's OK Computer. Like many great albums, it went unappreciated and downright ignored by much of the record-buying public. The band has returned with Simple Math, a grandiose, sprawling album with string sections, children's choirs and guitar solos out the wazoo. Odds are, it will be the best rock release of 2011. This is your cue to buy the fuck out of it and tell all your friends. Because if we don't support quality musicians like Manchester Orchestra, all we're left with is Hinder. And nobody wants that.

You're totally right. No one wants to listen to Hinder. No one. Check out the video for the lead single to Simple Math, also entitled....Simple Math. If the rest of the album is as good as this song, then this will definitely be the best rock release this year.
