7b4fe396f5d3Awesome band – this release is a rare tour EP that was handed out at a few gigs in the US this year.

Big, full and positive. It’s a joy to hear new things from these guys.

Chon – Chon EP

July 8, 2009

musicOK, I’ll admit it. Metal isn’t my thing. Far from it, really… but this album… words can’t really describe how much fun it is. The music is tight, fast and sends me into a jealous / envious rage every time I put it on.

Quick fact – the drummer is / was 11 when they recorded this EP…. Download the fucking release!

William Fitzsimmons – The Sparrow and the Crow

June 23, 2009

41UU0L-dFQLSo I was going to post an album by a band that existed for one show only that went by the name of cash money bros – but I couldn’t find it, which upset me a lot….

Instead, I’m going to put up an album by a guy who I’ve been obsessed with lately – his music is charmingly simple, but so very complicated at the same time…. Plus he sports a wicked beard that is the envy of any grown man.

Track one is not his best song – skip it and give the album the chance it deserves.

David Bazan – American Flags EP

May 26, 2009

The man behind this 2 track EP is one of the most prolific artists of his time – and as per usual, has been greatly undervalued by everyone.

The driving force of such amazingly influential bands such as Pedro the Lion and Headphones,  David shows on this hard to find EP that he  can still kill you with his amazing vocal talents and simple song structures.
