The next few Monday posts are going to focus on local music from Southern New England and an entry from Los Angeles with New England roots.

Lannen - Singles Vol. 1

Bonkers good if you like pop rock.

Release date: December 20, 2012

I've been following this Boston-based band for a while, through a few name changes, time off, injuries; they just keep coming around making really good pop rock. Their latest entries came almost a year apart in the form of 2 singles on two different releases.

Singles, Vol. 1 launches with "Austin, Massachusetts" and you can instantly pick up on their growth from The World Can Wait. There's a bigger sound out of the production and more depth to the music, but it's still has the hook and sweet singable choruses. "Lila the Arsonist" follows a similar vibe; two good songs and it's nice to have some new music from the band.

Lannen - Singles Vol. 2

Release date: December 20, 2012 and November 29, 2013

Several months passed and they delivered Singles, Vol. 2 or as I could like call it, GET YOUR FEELINGS ON TO THIS ROCK MUSIC.

I've been listening to these songs on and off for months and I still get all "fist in the air" at the end of "Broken Instrument" as singers Jay and Ryan go back and forth, overlapping "I am a missing puzzle piece" and "I am a broken instrument." Just bonkers good. Bonkers good if you like pop rock and stuff a Jimmy Eat World and maybe a little New Found Glory. Maybe bonkers good if you like some of the stuff on the radio. Probably not bonkers good if you if I've lost you at this point.

Did I mention there's another song? Yeah, "If I Can't (Fix You) No One Can." Do I need to even write about a song with a title like that? I'm sure you have heard another song with the same sentiment, maybe you have a whole library full of breakup/relationship/maybe I just feel mad today songs. Add this one. Just do it.

I just saw them at TT the Bear's and they're still a fun live act. They've taken their time to make some really good music and they seem to truly enjoy being on stage singing those songs to everyone who listens.

This is the soundtrack to: Rocking your way out of a relationship in a mostly healthy way, but utilizing music as way to look back without the mopey stuff.
