It wouldn’t be any stretch to say that Andrew McMahon has consistently been my favorite artist since I was 12. I still remember the first time I heard “Cavanaugh Park”— I stole my sister’s Sony Discman before heading to school, blatantly ignored my friends, and listened to this mixed CD that one of her friends made her. It was a big move for me… I really wasn’t listening to anything other than Eminem, Nelly, and 2Pac at the time. Imagine my surprise when angsty, bitter 12-year-old me fell in love with everything that hit my ears. Taking Back Sunday, the Early November, and the Starting Line stuck with me, but Something Corporate always meant a little more. I’m committed to so much more than Andrew’s music; I’m committed to his message. He’s a new dude, now, much different than he was back in ‘02, but he’s still churning out music that is outrageously personal, relatable, and meant to be heard at a high volume in a vehicle without a destination. “Cecilia and the Satellite” is so much more than what I expected to hear when I pressed play, and damn it, guys, I’m so stoked about it.
