If you haven't heard them, I would highly suggest them. The album site has about 5 songs. I really like The Coldest Heart and Who Needs Air. They continue to amaze me. If there was one band I would say was poised to break out, they could be it. If anyone has thoughts on them, please share them, good or bad.
The only band on Tooth and Nail right now that interests me is Mewithoutyou. IMO Tooth and Nail is part of a huge myriad of labels that are supporting, producing, and encouraging really bad emo music which, alongside bad ska and bad nu-metal, is some of the worst rock oriented music in existence. There are too many kid bands getting deals and putting out sub-par, generic albums.
Although I started out in the emo/punk genre, I've been getting my music fix from more indie and pop artists the past handful of years. Stuff like Belle & Sebastian, John Vanderslice, Nada Surf, Kind of Like Spitting, Baby Dayliner, The National etc. etc. There is more diversity and experimentation in the independent rock world.
