Sitting around flipping channels last night, I came across that weird HD music channel on Time Warner Cable called Palladia or whatever. They were showing an MTV Unplugged with Paramore, and it was amazing. I’ve been listening to their new record, Brand New Eyes, quite a bit, and I’m increasingly blown away by it. They’ve matured ever so slightly since the last record, but they’ve managed to do so without immediately equating maturing with suddenly becoming boring, which is far more than lots of other bands can say. There’s no “Misery Business” on the record, because that shit is just too fucking good, but “Brick By Boring Brick” comes close. Video after the jump.
