So a couple weeks ago, Manchester Orchestra played in Grand Rapids with Kevin Devine and Balance and Composure. I was very familiar with Manchester’s album Mean Everything to Nothing, and just about that. Then I heard them perform Penascola from the album Simple Math and I can’t stop listening to the rest of their discography including their new album Cope which has split many of their fans. I will say I’m a huge fan of the opening tracks on Cope, but haven’t it hasn’t completely won me over yet, will update when I have confirmation.
