Northern Room: We’re on Fire (live acoustic)
I had recently promised you all more Wisconsin-based rock over on my Twitter account after realizing that we were sorely lacking in showcasing the home state in which our trademark java is sent out to the masses for guaranteed all night rocking.
Well this is the first musical delivery to you after that announcement. Unfortunately our featuree – Milwaukee based band, NORTHERN ROOM, played their final show on November 8th, 2008. Regardless, we really enjoyed this track that was discovered via music-discovery site ‘thesixtyone’, and really thought it was time to bring this amazingly clean live and acoustic track to your ears.
A little history on these guys. They opened for Bon Jovi at the Bradley Center in Milwaukee after winning a contest in 2006 (out of 100 bands), to open for Mr. ‘Shot Down in a Blaze of Glory’ himself. At some point the group also signed to a Japanese label, BM3 Records, and after several releases, band-member Andrew Jonathan made the decision to leave the band, at which point the band decided to also call it quite. Later before they were entirely consumed by flames from today’s featured track, they released one last effort – “Blacklight”.
Enjoy and when you get a moment check out the album from whence this version came. In late 2007 the band combined the ten tracks from both of their EPs, three live acoustic tracks, and one previously unreleased song — Home — to create Last Embrace – Deluxe Edition. This enhanced CD, which also contains a music video for Last Embrace, was independently released internationally in November of 2007. Word.
