I was first turned onto Via Audio via TheTripwire.com, which asked the band to keep a studio diary while they recorded their SideCho debut, Say Something, earlier this year. As fate would have it, an advance copy of the CD showed up in my mailbox right around the same time. Itâ€™s a pretty fantastic debut from this New York/Boston-based band, Jessica Martinâ€™s pretty vocals sure to break the hearts of many a young male music blogger. Martinâ€™s band mates (oh yeah, THOSE guys) – Danny Molad, Tom Deis, and David Lizmi – lay down a smart and sophisticated pop sound behind Martinâ€™s vocals and compliment her vocally as well throughout the 11 songs on the CD. Itâ€™s no wonder Chris Walla (Death Cab for Cutie) and Jim Eno (Spoon) took interest in the band early on.
Doing things the new-fashion way, I sent the band some questions via their MySpace account since I had to miss their show in Columbus this past weekend (who went? leave a review in the comments section please) and just a few days later the answers arrived â€¦ without a name of the person who answered them! So, Iâ€™m fairly certain it wasnâ€™t Jessica or Tom since both are referenced in the interview by first name. That leaves Danny or David. Your guess is as good as mine.
