I grew up in Utah and lived in Las Vegas for a few years. I would say that I like The Killers, but they were never my favorite.
One day, over on the bird app, another writer (Erik Storey, are you here?) called The Killers album Pressure Machine “Utah Springsteen” and I immediately bought the album. The album is one of those that reminds me of home both in how it was when I was a kid and how it is now. There’s one line that is not just a Springsteen-like lyric, but also the line that encompasses my storytelling: “And I’ll walk with the living and the dead in the place I used to live.”
I’m listening to the album now and, honestly, it’s absolutely heartbreaking. If you are a fan of Springsteen, especially NEBRASKA, give this record a turn.
(The Killers still aren’t my favorite band, but this record is climbing into my top five.)

I'm getting to see the Killers in May next year, and I'm excited about it. The whole Vegas style show they put on is a good time. But Pressure Machine just hit different. It was so subtle and reserved that it caught me off guard on first listen, but it grew on me more and more with every listen. And the Nebraska comparison is dead on!
As far as your question, I'm from Georgia which means most of what we churn out is tractors and blue jeans and being sad about their dogs, or whatever. Outkast has gotta be the best representation of ATL ever, but when you go farther out...I dunno. Drive By Truckers? They're twangy and country enough to get the vibe right, but it never comes at the cost of their artistry. The band's a bunch of damn good musicians.
reggielutz: @johiay: lol it was a bar in Mountaintop PA. Currently the Mountaintop Pub and Eatery. I wasn't around at all when they filmed there but I just heard about it. And I didn't see the episode but it aired last night. My brain just went, "Whaaaat!?!"

reggielutz: Does anyone over here remember a song with the lyric "Alan Moore knows the score"? Not the Pop Will Eat Itself song though, that's not the one that's in my head.
