I’m getting ahead of myself, but I’ve been jamming to this album all morning and let me tell you, I dig it. If you listen to Transit, their sound has changed since their earlier albums (Keep This To Yourself 2010), (Listen & Forgive 2012). With this album, personally I feel like they’ve become more mainstream alternative. ”They Only One” plays almost like “Nothing Lasts Forever” from Young New England; which is one of my favorite songs off the album. Some of my personal favorites are Sweet Resistance, Rest To Get Better, and Nothing Left To Lose.
If you’ve listened to Transit before, you’d probably dig this album a ton. You can get it now on iTunes and it’s available for stream on Spotify!
BICYCLE ACTIVISM: Latvian activists from a branch of the bicycle advocacy group Let’s Bike it recently created a visual reminder of the space taken by cars on a typical road. To this end, the group fabricated bamboo skeletons shaped like actual cars and mounted them on their bikes. The activists then cycled around the streets of Riga for several hours to highlight the absurdity of using a large car to move a single person. The stunt was organized as part of European Mobility Week, an ongoing campaign that explores sustainable urban mobility around Europe.
