People In Planes + The Exit

People in Planes originates from Cardiff, Wales and have been receiving major buzz in the US – especially after their recent tour with The Bravery. It's a 5-piece outfit playing well-crafted and smoothed alternative rock. People in Planes are putting out their debut album on March 28 entitled "As Far As The Eye Can See..." which is produced by Sam Williams (Supergrass – “I Should Coco”). In the meantime you can check People In Planes EP and the single 'Talking Heads'. People in Planes recently had a great opportunity in having Joaquin Phoenix (Johnny Cash in “Walk the Line”) direct the band’s debut video for "If You Talk Too Much (My Head Will Explode)" .

The Exit, an alternative rock trio from New York, caught a lot of buzz with the release of their album “Home For An Island” and their first single entitled “Don’t Push”. The Exit function similarly to the Clash or Husker Du. Two individual songwriters, that each posses their own unique sound and point of view, while complimenting each other. Home For An Island is a significant leap forward from their 2001 debut New Beat. According to Brewer, fans said that their first album was “good, but this is nothing like you guys are live.” The Exit is now putting forth a 2nd single (and video for) “Soldier”, an emotional acoustic ballad about the nonsense of war.

Motion City Soundtrack isn't an actual soundtrack. It's the name of the band. So the artist is not VA, it's Motion City Soundtrack and the album posted is "Commit This To Memory"
