And Now I'm Definitely Alright...

This is the first live EP from the Peoria, Arizona based "desert pop" boys. It follows this year's independently released "Dog Problems" which saw the band's reputation grow tremendously. After their constant touring in the States and being accepted superbly in the UK supporting the All American Rejects on their tour, it seems their popularity knows no limits. This taster of their live sets kicks off with the title track from the previous album "Dog Problems" followed by a superb rendition of the Sparks classic "This Town Ain't Big enough for the Both of Us". We then get the feel-good song for those getting over relationships past that is "Inches and Falling". Again Nate decides to lull us with another song about break-ups and the stresses that come from it in "Matches" followed by the acoustic melodic "Faith In Fast Cars". To round things off we get "Janet", a song so worthy of swinging your partner that it'll have your Grand Ma tapping her feet and bursting onto the dancefloor! All in all this album is fantastically produced. It is melodic and captivating and their newer songs show a degree of experimentation that was missing from the early works. This is a band that suits the live scene well and with plans to tour Europe and the UK next year with a second EP being released shortly into the New Year the only way for this band is up. This album is a superb example of them in their element and it goes a long way towards capturing the essence of what it means and how it feels to indeed be "The Format". Who know's what the future direction will be but, if their recent outlooks are anything to go by, it is bound to be enthralling, interesting and dappled with a sprinkling of pazazz!

Years Active: '00s

Self-described as a "desert pop" band, the Format materialized around two friends, vocalist Nate Ruess and multi-instrumentalist Sam Means, in the early 2000s. Taking influence from '60s music to craft their own spirited indie pop melodies, the Arizona-based pair were barely in their twenties when they laid down a five-song EP with producer Bob Hoag. Next thing they knew, the first track from that EP -- the aptly titled "The First Single" -- found its way onto local radio and became a minor hometown...
