Recently, I've been listening to a lot of 101.9 WRXP out of New York. I stumbled across them a few months back and they play a good mix of modern, classic, and rock from the '90's. They also don't play a lot of the same stuff that other rock stations do.
Last week, I heard a new (to me) band that sounds like early U2. They're called Civil Twilight and they're from South Africa. The track they played is called "Letters from the Sky" and it's a mix of U2, Coldplay, and someone else I can't put my finger on.
Hope you guys enjoy it too.
