Must Listen: The Money Pit – ‘The Money Pit’

by Deanna Chapman

If you’re looking for some great new music, look no further because The Money Pit’s self-titled release is one of the best debut albums of 2015. The band members are formerly of Gatsbys American Dream so while they’ve formed a new band, the music may sound familiar. It’s perfect for you last long summer drive or just something to jam out to. The album kicks off with “I Want My Money Back” and it’s an excellent choice to hook you in. The bass line is memorable and the guitars reminded me of a tone similar to those on *Haze* by The American Scene. Needless to say, this is one hell of an opening track. You won’t be disappointed and the album just continues to impress as you get deeper into it.

 If there’s one new artist you listen to this week, be sure it’s The Money Pit. It blends enough genres to be accessible to a huge amount of music fans. You get a rock vibe with some pop melodies and hooks plus so much more. It’s not quite as experimental as Gatsbys American Dream, but it’s well worth listening to.
