12 Songs, 40 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

Buzzing with the earnestness of Mumford & Sons, the pop sheen of Foster the People, and the anthemic sing-along choruses of fun. From the strutting bombast of "Believe" to the punk-pop of "Heart of Stone" to the Celtic-inflected title track, American Authors may have written the book on alt-pop crossover success in 2014.

Best day of my life

I seriously love "best day of my life." It really, truly makes my day tons better. I listen to it everyday & it sits on repeat. I've been going through some stuff lately, and when I turn on that song, I can't resist to smile every time. Thank you.

Like, it's not even GOOD fake indie

I believe music that bills itself as "alternative" or "indie" should retain at least some of the characteristics those genres are known for: integrity, individuality, passion, a desire for progression, and a distaste for corporate pandering of any kind.

This band, along with Imagine Dragons, the Neighbourhood and the rest of their ilk, are the antithesis of all these things. They are what top 40 programmers and middle-aged soccer moms think "alternative" music should sound like. They are to indie what Nickelback and Creed were to grunge, and they need to be stopped.

lol jk i dont really care that much tbh.
still terrible tho
