Album Review: A Million Hours

Title:  A Million Hours (BandCamp [Jump Start Records], Amazon [CD], Amazon [vinyl], iTunes)
Artist:  Broadcaster (Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, BandCamp, Last.fm)

Broadcaster’s sophomore full-length A Million Hours is an exceptionally solid collection of ‘90s inspired indie power pop punk rock.  This Long Island, NY based power trio knows how to write great pop rock songs and from start to finish, this record includes some of the band’s best work to date.  A Million Hours brings a new level of emotional depth to Broadcaster’s music, resulting in one of 2013’s most surprisingly powerful records.  I’ve been a fan of this band since the Joyride EP, which was brilliant, and they have simply gotten better and better.  This album is a must for fans of bands like Cheap Girls, Great Cynics, The Thermals, and Candy Hearts or classic bands like Superchunk, Buffalo Tom, Sicko, and The Lemonheads.  Needless to say, this is one of my favorite records of the year.
