Favorite Friday with No Second Troy

No Second Troy's
Favorite Albums of the Week

With the May release of No Second Troy's album Colors, positive reviews keep rolling in. Skope Magazine read into the title of the album, writing, "‘Colors’ is a great title for the experience, as the encouraged mood seems to be of vibrance and faith. Campus Circle is into the vibe as well. They might be the first ones to refer to NST as "indie-electro pop." We're cool with that.

No Second Troy front man Jeff Wharen (clearly the one "sipping" water in the pic) checked in with us and sent us a list of five albums that he's been listening to a lot lately. "I'm loving all these albums for different reasons," he said. "If it makes me feel good, inspires songwriting or the lyrics stir up emotion I'm digging it. I'm always listening to The Beatles in some way. It's like keeping a picture of your grandparents up on the wall they keep me grounded and remind where we came from."

Each Friday, hence the name Favorite Friday - one GLG band/artist will send us a list and comments about their "favorites" of the week. It could be a list of albums they are listening to in the van, books they are reading, guilty pleasure TV, and so on. We hope these various "favorites" will give you unique glimpse into the lives of our bands.
