Singer Anthony Green left Saosin on the eve of that band's ascension to major-label status and formed Circa Survive in his home base, the Philly suburb of Doylestown, in 2004. With a strong exploratory streak amid decidedly melodic emo and the wide-open spaces of heartland rock (occasionally the guitars twang), Circa Survive add a progressive feel to the emo sound, not so far from The Mars Volta and just as close to the radio-friendly trappings of Fall Out Boy. Marked by inventive guitar freak-outs and old-school pedal hopping, Circa Survive further set themselves apart with Green's high-register, distinctive vocals. The band has a trio of albums under its belt: 2005's Juturna, 2007's On Letting Go and 2010's Blue Sky Noise.

Live at M Studio
Runtime: 19 minSouthern Californian rock outfit Thrice have a decade long reputation for unleashing enthralling bouts of electric aggression and emotion, furiously flung from the heart without much care of consequence. The band's eighth release Major/Minor is as exciting as ever; crunchy yet melodic, with Dustin Kensrue's raspy siren overlaying an unexpected, grungy foundation. Turns out these guys are full of surprises, as we recently learned on a golden, Fall afternoon at a pristine photography studio on the west side of Manhattan. With late afternoon light painting rusty tones of orange and yellow on Dustin and guitarist Teppei Teranishi, the brothers Thrice traded electricity for more acoustic means, cutting three of Major/Minor's songs down to the mighty emotional footwork the band rely upon to truly take their music places. The result is a set that's stunning in its beauty and simplicity, yet every bit as enticing as what you have come to rely on Thrice to deliver over the years.
