Poetry and Mix Cassettes

You might remember me talking about the EP from the Denver quartet Fiance last month (here). Well one of their members, Michael James, has released a new EP of his own titled To Raise An Army For Love. He's actually put out several solo releases of his own, but this latest focuses, as you might guess from the title, on love and war. "I have always been intrigued by the fact that those ideas can be so opposite and contrary to one another, but still have a common thread at their core...they almost need to coexist to exist at all. I think where you find love, many times you will also find a fight going on just to keep that love from dying." The EP's five tracks alternate between saying farewell to love and celebrating it's power when it's just so right. The opening track, Poetry and Mix Cassettes, just hits home with its title, if nothing else. Check it out below and then check out his MySpace page for some more tracks.
