Five years ago: Augustines' Rise Ye Sunken Ships

They were known as We Are Augustines back then, but it was five years ago today that Augustines released Rise Ye Sunken Ships. The band and their fantastic songs are some of my favourite discoveries of the past few years, and their performance at The Garrison (click through for pics) was one of the best I've experienced. This album has some very solid, heartfelt and passionate tunes, and my favourites are below.

"Chapel Song"


"Headlong Into the Abyss"

"Book of James"

"East Los Angeles"


"Philadelphia (The City of Brotherly Love)"

"New Drink for the Old Drunk"
