Our friend at MP3.com are today featuring a free download of a song by [mp3com-artist]The Airborne Toxic Event[/mp3com-artist]. It’s a live version of “All I Ever Wanted” that was recorded during the band’s recent Last.fm Discover session.
[mp3com-artist]The Airborne Toxic Event[/mp3com-artist] was named after a section in Don DeLillo’s famous novel White Noise. The group mixes stylish alt-rock with the literary inclinations for frontman Mikel Jollett.
Jollett formed his band in 2006, a tumultuous time in his life. As a novelist himself, he gave the band (then only he and and drummer Daren Taylor) a distinct literary edge with his poetic lyrics. After the band gained a lot of local recognition, they decided to add three more members on guitars, bass and violin to fill out a full band.
On their debut full length album, [mp3com-artist]The Airborne Toxic Event[/mp3com-artist] make quite a statement. Projecting a stylish romanticism, their songs evoke an exciting night out in the city. Following in the footsteps of like minded rockers [mp3com-artist]The Killers[/mp3com-artist] and [mp3com-artist]The Strokes[/mp3com-artist], [mp3com-artist]The Airborne Toxic Event[/mp3com-artist] capture the glamour of youthful revelry, albeit from a slightly more cerebral perspective.
Check out this live performance of their new single “All I Ever Wanted” off of their new album All At Once, recorded in the Last.fm Discover Studio:
