Yup. Here it is. You’re welcome. I’ve only listened to it once and it’s leaps and bounds better than “Admiral Fell Promises.”  

Check out the tracks The Winery, Among the Leaves and King Fish.

So, no one uses this anymore, mediafire is all but dead, I’ve moved 9 hours away back to Alabama and the internet is trying to keep us from listening to music the way we are accustomed to. With all that said, I’m about to start using this again. I won’t be including download links like I used to. I will just provide links to listen to and/or buy records. I miss writing for this, so if you get bummed about me not including download links anymore, sucks for you. Besides, you all should be using Rdio. It’s $9 a month, you can stream it on your smart phone, download things to your phone from it and it’s better than the evil empire ran Spotify. 

So guys, summer is almost here. Crank up the jamz, throw back the beers, turn the frowns upside down, put on the shorts, pull down the brims of your hats and let’s have fun. This could be your last summer.

Well damn. Black Kites has not even been completely laid to rest but already a new project has animated itself with a third of it’s body. That appendage is Tom Schlatter who offers bass and vocals to this new New Jersey aggressive screamo quartet. Joining him are Rob Ross, Chris Flynn, and probably most notably is The Saddest Landscape’s guitarist, Eric Mauro.

As the title suggest, these are but demos yet a lot of dynamite is packed into this very small keg. Capacities shows some pretty strong resemblances to it’s parents TSL and Black Kites. The four songs offered up do not even clock in at a full four minutes so there is not a whole lot I can say before the time runs out. If you needed any other comparisons, just take a look at their impressive lineage, boasting members from Less Life, Birth Screams, The Assistant, This Ship Will Sink, In First Person, You and I and supposedly more. Why you should be stoked? This demo consists of only four of the twelve songs they recorded earlier this month, hopefully it will not take much longer to hear the full release.

Mauro, you are notable. Listen to this yall.

Still too lazy to make a post so here’s a reblog. You should REALLY listen to this. There are only 4 songs to download for now, but trust me the others rule just as much.

Stream “Righteous, Ragged Songs” | Facebook

I haven’t posted on here in awhile, but maybe that’s because I haven’t heard anything as awesome as “Righteous, Ragged Songs” in a long time. Lee Bains is the former guitarist of Tuscaloosa, AL legends The Dexateens. When The ‘Teens semi called it quits awhile back, Bains started making his own music and from the sound of this song is doing a damn good job of it. Check it out if you think that Southern Fried Country Rock that name checks Fugazi and Fear sounds appealing. The full album, There Is A Bomb In Gilead, drops in April from Alive Natural Sounds.

Yes everyone, this is my Valentine’s Day gift to you all. 

This amazing artwork is the cover of the new Torche record entitled “Harmonicraft” due out on their new label Volcom Entertainment on 4/24. You can click this link to stream and/or download the first single off this highly anticipated record. This song doesn’t stray far from Torche’s signature sound and that’s A-OK with me. Prepare for yourself for crushingly heavy yet catchy and pop inspired riffs, hooks and harmonies. I wasn’t adequately prepared for this.

Who remembers the early days of mp3.com? This was before Myspace had music and when Facebook was still just a social networking tool for the nation’s major universities. Last.fm didn’t exist yet and people still had geocities built websites. Mp3.com was how I discovered music in the late 90’s/early 2000’s. You could search by genre, state, city, etc. much like you can on any website now, but at the time it blew my mind.

In 2002, the year before I left for Western Kentucky University in Bowling Green Kentucky, I researched bands from the area I’d soon be living in and stumbled across Foxhole. When I found out a band that sounded like this was from the town where I was going to school, I was BEYOND stoked. Foxhole plays their brand of trumpet-heavy post rock, but don’t let the over saturated words “post rock” scare you. This isn’t another Explosions in the Sky rip off band. 

Foxhole take sounds of early Anathallo, From Monument to Masses, Unwed Sailor and Saxon Shore and roll it all up into a nice, unique tightly knit package. Crashing drums, sudden rhythm changes, slow build ups, and of course the trumpet make this a familiar yet refreshing listening experience. I found this cd while packing boxes this week and remembered my multi-year love affair with the four tracks on it and was worried that upon listening the songs and recording that the EP would show it’s age, but it doesn’t. 

Foxhole is still reclusively and methodically making music having released two EP’s and a full length since. After a long hibernation period, I believe they have finished recording a new full length. As I look forward to the new full length I will re-fall in love with this band and you should too.

You guys remember last year, when Lemuria released “Pebble” like the second week of the year and still, at the end of the year, it was still on a ton of people’s best of 2011 lists? Well it’s happening again this year. The Saddest Landscape already leaked and will be on a lot of people’s best of 2012 list and it isn’t alone in early great releases. One of my favorite bands of al time, The Weakerthans frontman John K Samson has released this incredible, heartfelt and beautiful album and has yet again confirmed the fact that he is one of the greatest living songwriters of our time and all time. 

"Provinical" marks Samson’s first "formal" LP and first release since his third 7 inch "Provincial Road 222." If you are familiar with his 7 inches then some of these songs will be familiar. They haven’t been merely re-recorded but completely re-written and re-imagined. Those songs bundled with some new songs make this one of the most refreshing new records I’ve heard in a long time. This record is chock full of Samson’s poem like lyrics delicately laid across some songs that are incredibly and undeniably foot tapping pop songs and other songs that are slow, somber and utterly heartbreakingly beautiful.   

My favorite thing about John K Samson’s music (and even the Weakerthans music) is how unbelievably personal it is. When he writes about an experience back home in Winnipeg you feel almost as if you were part of it. He has a way of drawing in like you are listening to an old friend retell a story that you love hearing. I have found myself often closing my eyes to this record and can perfectly, without any cloudiness, see exactly what Samson wants me to see. That is a feat that music has a hard time reaching anymore. 

Don’t be a turkey and sleep on this record. Go preorder this right now and while your picking this up also pick up Samson’s book of poetry that is being released alongside this flawless LP. He deserves your attention, money and so so much more.

Facebook | Bandcamp/Download | Prawn

To start, I just want to say that I am so excited about this album. Tony Clark is the solo project of, well, Tony Clark from Prawn. It’s almost as if Prawn and Owen had a baby together (definitely noticeable in the first track). Prawn came to Jacksonville upon request and were some of the nicest dudes. You can download this album for free today, so get on it, and then buy whatever he releases in physical form.

Examination of the… was a band that was around from 2000-2003 in Sioux Falls, Iowa.. They were one of the many screamo/hardcore bands that I got into back in the early to mid 2000’s, and one of the few that I still listen to today. Love it or hate it, every release is different, varying from high pitched screamo to ISIS like ballads.

Genre: 80s goth post-punk/rock

This is most likely going to be an automatic love or hate. I know this is a little off from our usual, genre wise, but I’ve really been enjoying a few goth post-punk/80s new wave/synth-pop bands lately. Don’t diss the term “gothic”, I’m sure plenty of you are into New Order, Joy Division, Bauhaus, The Cure and The Smiths. Southern Death Cult is an English goth rock band from the 80s. From what I understand this band formed from members of Violation, then after this album the vocalist formed the band Death Cult (which isn’t as impressive as Southern Death Cult) and then finally The Cult.

Give it a try.

Genre: Indie Pop/Rock

This is a little something to go along with the female vocalist theme we’ve had lately. I feel like I’ve posted about this band before, but I can’t find anything in the archive. Reverie Sound Revue is an indie pop band from Canada fronted by Lisa Lobsinger, who was also a stand in member of Broken Social Scene. Although I never got into that band, I have enjoyed RSR more than the BSS songs I have heard. The band apparently separated after their ep in 2002, Lisa toured with BSS, and in 2005 they began the full length that didn’t release until 2009.

Lisa has extremely dreamy and beautiful soft vocals that pair well with both the upbeat poppy tracks like “We Are The Opposite of Theives” and the more delicate numbers like “Off Rooftops”. It’s simply a catchy pop album. I think vocally, this album combines well with anything Katherine King has released (Kaki King). The only other material they have released was an ep previous to this album, which you can grab here. Enjoy.

Genre : Noise/post punk

FFO: The Jesus Lizard

Saw this band back in 2010 (I think) and picked up this lp from Primal Vomit Records/Distro last night.

"GRIDS from North Carolina play ultra-distorted, grimy, feedback drenched noise punk with crushing repetitive precision. This new LP delivers their heaviest and most damaged material to date. Comparisons could be drawn to bands like Cherubs, Pissed Jeans, Mannequin or even a punker, noisier version of Failure at times."

Happy New Years
