Album of the Week, June 26th, 2016 – “Volume 27” by The Higher State


Let’s make one thing perfectly clear , we started 50thirdand3rd to help talk and promote bands that we play the crap out of, sometimes with all the incoming request , we will play or put up posts on bands that we have never heard of , in an attempt to hit all styles and sounds. That’s not happening today. This post for The Higher State is why , I still do this after four years, This is the kind of Album that I will play for years, I’ve listened to The Higher State for some time now and they are amongst the best bands out there. they have that uncanny ability to take all the sounds of The Teenage Shutdown Series and turn them into cool tunes for today. It’s all there , The Byrds, The Stones, The Yardbirds , Dick Dale, The Beatles, dig on in kids another top pick of mine for what has been a fantastic year for new music….
