I’m using this as my first chance to catch the band that everyone seems to think will bring down the house in 2006–Tea Leaf Green.

For the life of me (still), I’m having trouble grasping what it is that is really hooking everyone onto their sound. I think I’m starting to figure it out, though, (I have a very solid theory), but I have to wait and see them before I can really make any predictions or judgments. Plus, a lot of places are calling them the next band worth traveling for, and I think that’s about the largest compliment a band can get. Hell, I would travel for Heroic Doses, so you know…
