The new pearl jam? The new beck? Maybe just the new indie?

Because you CANNOT categorize Augustana with a genre.

If you tell someone about Augustana you cant say there all the way indie rock and roll, because they do have some of the “poppier” hits as well as some of your sad-classed indie rock.

All the Stars and Boulevards / One of the more “poppy” hits on the album that I enjoy alot. Some of your basic guitar work and simple drumming still give this song your classic sound while still adding a perfect new voice by Augustana’s singer, Dan Layus.

Dan Layus also adds hit simple guitar licks and new piano, adding that brit-pop feel to many of the songs on the album. Dan Layus reminds me of early Nirvana tones. That dragged out voice with some rough grind on the vocal chords makes Dan sound like a grunge rock singer.

No matter how you can say these guys sound like. They still arent very well known. Being on Advanced Warning (October, 2005, MTV) they will most likely be getting more influence and more opportunity.
