Summer of last year the wishes of loyal Format fans was granted (in some capacity). Nate Ruess, lead singer and one of the songwriters of the band struck out on his own with a few friends (Jack Antonoff of Steel Train and Andrew Dost of Anathallo) to form a new group called fun., and after teasing us for months and months with the demo "Benson Hedges" on their Myspace, released Aim and Ignite
on August 25th, 2009. I spent a few long car rides with it, let's put it that way.
