All Together Now
Better Than Ezra

Canadian rockers Default splashed onto the scene in 2001 with their album "The Fallout", which took the world by surprise with their hit single "Wasting My Time". The band now returns in 2003 with their follow up entitled "Elocation". This album features more of the same straight ahead rock as heard on the first album, but this time displays matured songwriting, and lyrical diversity that separates Default from the pack of perennial Canadian rock bands. Default also brought in modern rock genius Butch Walker for co-writing on the songs "Who Followed Who" and "All She Wrote" which are both stand out tracks on the album. Also notable is the track "Throw It All Away" which has a prominent hook, and is definitely a leading candidate for the next single off this record. The album closes out with an impressive acoustic version of "Let You Down", the final song on the band's first album. All in all, Default's "Elocation" is an impressive follow up and definitely worth a listen.
