Brendan Rivera - Mamaroneck, NY

Why We Like: The frontman from previous Absolute 100 band Looking Glass Wars, Brendan Rivera is just too good at what he does to not find a way to sneak his way into this feature again. Now he's doing his own thing, and he's once again letting the concepts that rule his mind run wild in album format. The newest installment in his solo venture is Body of Land, a full-length that meshes together dark pop mega-structures with everything from hopping melodies, flighty electronics and saddles blazin' with complex guitar work.
RIYL: Brand New, Looking Glass Wars, Alkaline Trio, My Chemical Romance -


2008 - The Musician
2009 - Body of Land (Veggie Co. Records)
2012 (upcoming)- No Ocean in Ireland
