  • bakkermaarten007 As a counter rec: I don't know if you'll like this since it's out of my usual type of recs. But since I've been listening to this album a lot (yes, due to some girl lol) I dig this a lot.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JAzkYmBZpE0
    July 28 07:19 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 Campfire songs (and then the strings come in and it's a glorified campfire song) =D . Haha, I like it. Seem like nice guys too.
    July 28 07:18 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 This is a very promising emo band, with a nod to the late nineties:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=er4_07I47fw (full album stream)
    July 27 03:48 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 It'll depend on what my brother and dad want. I primarily wanted to go for the show. NYC is a must-see in one's lifetime I guess but the length of the flights scares me. "These unheard songs have me excited." Same, the elusive 'Symphony' popped up in my head immediately haha =)
    July 23 06:09 AM
  • bakkermaarten007 Yeah, I saw that. My dad and brother wanted to come with me to NY, so maybe I'll just go anyway and attend one of the shows in the UK as well if ticket supply upholds. Also, I hope I'll get my hands on their reissues. Will you buy one of these? The compilation vinyl comes with unreleased songs =)
    July 22 03:06 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 Hmm, if they really are coming to the UK I might cancel my plans for the NY show though. It's so much closer for me (and way cheaper ofcourse)
    July 22 12:18 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 Only now gotten around to it. Absolutely love it.
    July 20 08:46 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 And sorry for flooding, this hardcore song is just too powerful:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k7p3bdzCV80
    July 14 07:28 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 I'm sure you know Eluvium, this song is astonishing. Waves of hope washing over me, is what it feels like.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WfV7hNPaP78
    July 14 05:38 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 There's something very evocative in this post-rock song for me:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MKDzAdCzUto
    July 13 08:24 AM
  • bakkermaarten007 That's a beautiful guitar you have, wow.
    July 12 06:09 AM
  • ZombicidalMan Well Oranges are pretty dark so generally I roll the tone back a bit on the JM and set the amp a little brighter than I would a Les Paul. On my JM I like the two pickups together as well, I think it sounds the fullest (but that's just me). Finally grab some Chapstick! Put it on the nut and the bridge so the strings get all lubed. It won't bind even when you use the vibrato bar a lot (good for shoegaze)
    July 11 10:59 PM
  • ZombicidalMan dude how are you liking your jazzmaster? I have some tips when I used my Jazzmaster with my Orange if you want (or just ignore those and have a good time anyways)
    July 11 07:10 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 That's cool song. Not wild about it, but I approve of their concept. A little American Football-esque, a little chamber pop and a little emo. Could be executed better though, but I like this direction. (oh btw, I accidentally removed one of my shouts here)
    July 11 09:58 AM
  • bakkermaarten007 I'd already heard it. I'm not very eager to hear the new album after I've heard that. The song you first showed me was average at best and this one, though musically good, was at times cringeworthy in the vocal department and the lyrics have gone downhill. Imo ofcourse. What's your take?
    July 8 08:03 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 I am a subscriber for their RSS feed but never saw that video. I'll definitely watch it, I was a skater in my high school years. I sucked though haha =) . I was proud to do a kick flip, that was about it.
    July 6 09:05 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 Thanks.This is a soothing song from Sunday's Best. I just copied the URL on the song's starting time.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BDgo2pVeaVI#t=430
    July 5 07:45 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 Cool scenes, from which movie are they? Oh, like the song as well. Vocals sound familiar but I can't really pinpoint them.
    July 5 11:43 AM
  • bakkermaarten007 Awesome song. I should listen to more Radiohead, but their fame holds me back. Not out of some pretentious considerations but the music loses parts of its intimacy for me.
    July 1 06:28 AM
  • bakkermaarten007 I have listened to that album a couple of times way back and recently (4-6 months ago) I tried it again but it just has a certain edge to it I can't digest. It feels a little pretentious to me I guess.
    June 30 07:44 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 Yeah, I know this band. I kind of figured they would not have many bands sounding like them, I looked a couple of years ago when I was at the peak exploring everything emo related.Too bad you're already burnt out on them. For me it's always nice to know that whenever I get stuck in finding new obscure bands I could always have another look to one of the sputnik favourites in hopes they might finally resonate strongly. =)
    June 30 07:49 AM
  • bakkermaarten007 I can't help but love this indie pop tune: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-oapJmnKlU8
    June 29 08:17 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 It seems like I'm becoming a big Brand New fanboy. I've been listening to DE and TDAGARIM these past two weeks solely. Don't know what triggered it, I've had these albums for years lol. I wonder, have you got anything remotely similar in the sense that the lyrics are smart and witty and the style is not overly standard emo?
    June 29 07:19 AM
  • bakkermaarten007 As to be expected I guess. Well, a couple of months cutting back on expenses like booze and that'll balance things out haha. It'll be worth it =)
    June 28 08:05 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 Woops. Lol, I have holes in my memory. Haha, too much drinking I guess. Making a fool of myself
    June 28 06:12 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 It's too bad you're leaving so early in NY, guess I won't meet you. Oh well, I understand. NY probably is expensive enough already. I haven't booked my ticket yet but I don't dare look at what it will cost lol.
    June 28 04:11 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 No, haven't heard that song. Hmm...okay, guess I'm going to download that album. I mean, I liked some of the songs, but this one pulls me over.
    June 28 04:10 PM
  • Trebor. The LA one, Anthom too
    June 26 01:02 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 Sounds very emo =D . Esme is a beautiful name and the full band name surely is a nice allusion to the hasty society that tends to forget so quickly, even people. Option for a band you're in?
    June 25 07:30 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 I honestly think it's nothing to write home about (no pun intended lol). But then again, their live performances have always been somewhat lackluster. What do you think?
    June 25 02:35 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 I vaguely remember the first rec. This one was nice but still not entirely convinced haha =D(you're not a pain in the ass btw)I wish I could rec you something worthy, but I can't lol. I'll have to up my music discovery game.
    June 23 06:50 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 I just saw it because you liked their facebook status haha =D . This is beyond awesome. But I hope his vocals are nicely placed in the mix.
    June 19 02:51 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 They are so popular in Asian countries, it's not even funny lol
    June 19 08:18 AM
  • bakkermaarten007 That is an awesome compilation! I'm suprised it isn't well known, like the Don't Forget to Breathe compilation for instance.
    June 16 09:07 AM
  • bakkermaarten007 I found myself appreciating droney/ ambient. modern classical sounds a lot more lately. Ever heard A Winged Victory for the Sullen? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Iaxe5K3Ljo
    June 13 05:29 AM
  • bakkermaarten007 Yes, I like this. Way better than his strictly electronic affairs. Didn't know he had a song with actual drums and an acoustic guitar in it. Then again, I've nly heard about two of his songs before =)
    June 12 02:22 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 Ah okay. High costs for mobile internet there? Guess you'll have something to look forward too =)
    June 6 04:43 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 I don't think I need to tell you that Never Meant has its official video? =)
    June 5 04:13 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 I haven't got so much to rec you, but if you're in the mood for some mix of slowcore/emo again, then you might want to check this out:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xSzGhgN_XEk
    June 1 12:37 AM
  • bakkermaarten007 They do sound like Christie Front Drive. It's always cool to see such compilations (it's from a comp album). I will have to check out if there are some other cool artists on there. Not so found of the other song, hope you like it though, it's your impulse buy after all =) .

  • Trebor. drinkin, smpokin, ****in, gettin money
    May 25 04:47 AM
  • Trebor. oh man. I need to not lsietn to so much emo
    May 25 04:14 AM
  • bakkermaarten007 Also I'm taking nutritional supplements (Ginseng, magnesium, vitamin E,...) ,drink green tea and listen to a lot of music I've put on the shelves before (to keep my brain occupied). Haha, you can see how desperately I want this emptiness gone. =)
    May 25 03:41 AM
  • bakkermaarten007 I'd say it's cool you can relate. But it's totally not. Never realized you felt that too. Right now I'm trying to cut back on my alcohol intake and trying to focus on upcoming projects (which is hard, 'cause I don't care). Maybe that'll change my brain chemistry. I'd suggest you try something similar. I don't know if it'll work but I do know that in the past I'd get very mentally sharp by focusing on a certain project and not allowing myself to fail. Maybe it'll kill the apathy.
    May 25 03:39 AM
  • Trebor. **** yeah **** yeah I'm feelin it tack yon
    May 25 03:38 AM
  • Trebor. i don't even know what I oput even thoiugh it's right there. Hotelier 3.5 what the ****
    May 25 03:30 AM
  • Trebor. you are the nig
    May 25 02:51 AM
  • bakkermaarten007 Oh, by the way: I asked Chris and Jeremy about that song 'Symphony' during their AMA on Reddit. They didn't really give an answer lol. Though there are some folks who say that Chris didn't say "can't, we have bass" but "heeeyy, we have bass". But that doesn't make sense to me. Why would they state the obvious...
    May 23 04:05 AM
  • bakkermaarten007 Well, 3 is a good rating =D . But no, it didn't really hit me. I wished I could like it more, but it failed leaving an emotional impression on me.
    May 23 04:03 AM
  • bakkermaarten007 Sounds like a more spacey AF. Not so in it though, but that's just to blame on another of my more apathetic periods lol
    May 19 06:36 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 Yeah, I understand you. I think they will certainly be more comfortable as well, knowing that the crowd came especially for them and are accustomed to 90's emo or emo in general. I have a sense that Chris Simpson would find himself more confident in a smaller venue singing out loud too.
    May 16 02:35 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 My neverending love for Jenn Ghetto...Have you ever checked out some of her solo-stuff? (or am I repeating myself?)https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8un9_yciBIU
    May 14 01:46 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 This is short but lovely (indie folk) : http://4factorialrecords.bandcamp.com/album/4-001-home-language
    May 13 11:10 AM
  • bakkermaarten007 It all yet needs to be scheduled. I go with my dad and probably my brother (not to the show though) and I'll probably know a few weeks in advance. But it's likely that I'll already be there from friday or saturday =)
    May 12 07:02 AM
  • bakkermaarten007 http://www.mediafire.com/download/9qbkf6glbm6ewbf/The Diggs - ctrl-alt-delete.rarhere you go. Thanks for that link. Every time a new flicker of hope that I will hear a new 4,5 or 5 emo album is worth it to listen =D
    May 7 05:21 AM
  • bakkermaarten007 Hey, I saw you listening to a couple of The Diggs songs on spotify. If you want to have it, I bought it a couple of weeks ago (320 kbps). Haven't really gotten around to it yet.
    May 6 05:50 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 Ok, I was hesitant to listen because I first needed to download it. Lol, I'm so lazy.But I'm glad I did, it's refreshing =)
    May 1 05:05 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 Don't know if you've heard this Last Days of April song, it's fantastic: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h_F0iIfWIqw
    April 28 08:02 AM
  • bakkermaarten007 Me neither. That guy always gets leaped in the scene, but it's just some poppy music tbh.
    April 26 05:14 AM
  • bakkermaarten007 Ah cool =) . Too bad mine is for the 7th, oh well. You'll get to tell me all about it while I'd stillburn with impatience lol. Don't expect too much of me though, I'm quite boring irl
    April 25 06:40 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 Yeah, I just saw that. I don't think it was included in the original listing. Anyway, anxiously waiting =) . Do you have a ticket?
    April 25 02:40 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 Couldn't get my hands on a ticket...So frustrated.
    April 25 01:40 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 20 dollars is like 15 euros or something =) . It's supercheap given their legendary status in the emo scene. I'll be luring the Bowery Ballroom' site this afternoon while I'm in class. I hope they accept paypal
    April 25 04:18 AM
  • bakkermaarten007 "Funny how they announce this right after we were talking about it"You have these powers you're unaware of haha"Either way its an obligation or else ill be kicking myself for the rest oof my life."Pretty much, how I feel about it. I dislike travelling in general. It makes me very nervous. But it's a Mineral reunion, never thought I'd get that chance again! =)
    April 25 04:16 AM
  • bakkermaarten007 So I guess I'll be coming to NY 09/05 =)
    April 24 03:21 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 Oh lol, they're so teasing us with the instagram page =D
    April 24 07:36 AM
  • bakkermaarten007 And they have an official facebook page too, time for me to unlike the old one =) .Also, some merch would be nice. I'm not counting on a reunion, I think they just felt it was the opportune moment to do a little communication with the emo-revival and all.
    April 24 07:30 AM
  • bakkermaarten007 I have no idea. But yes it's evident that they wer growing apart musically. One listen to Imbroco and TGR would be enough to establish that.
    April 23 06:28 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 Yes, Chris is still doing music but I doubt if the ex-Mineral members are as close as AF now are. Do you know what happened after the recording of endserenading what caused them to split up?
    April 23 05:36 AM
  • bakkermaarten007 If Mineral did a reunion show I think I would put myself in debt, I wouldn't care =DEven if it was just a basement show somewhere haha
    April 22 05:24 AM
  • bakkermaarten007 If I had money to spare, but unfortunately I haven't =D.Anyway, this is a great song I think. It's just indie rock https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aOg69ETXfps
    April 21 07:32 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 I guess you'll be trying to secure a ticket for American Football =D
    April 21 11:25 AM
  • bakkermaarten007 That one song on The Rika Split Though ( It's A Fate We Can't Escape) sounded quite different in guitar tone and Keith's yelling. So I think. But I do think he took a bit of inspiration from Penfold's 'Kissing The Nightmare' there. =)
    April 17 08:25 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 I don't recall showing this to you and it may take some getting used to, but it's a very nice experimental style of metal. Has a little bit of everything lolhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hnaFpQ493d8
    April 17 05:15 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 I think you're spot on there. And about the emo part too, just nothing to get too excited about. Maybe the upcoming E!E! album will be, but I hope it'll be drastically different and set a new standard. Also: I hope it will be more serious. The more I'm familiar with the genre, the more I see the contrast between late nineties/ early 00's emo and nowadays emo. Heartfelt versus lighthearted, grittier versus more playful, etc. As far as I'm concerned they're two different genres.
    April 16 03:08 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 Isn't it sad how it's so hard nowadays to give superb recs to eachother? (correct me if I'm wrong but I sense that you have an equally hard time getting blown away by music :) )
    April 15 07:38 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 They do sound heavily inspired by Slowdive (as do almost all shoegaze bands). So maybe some Slowdive songs? =DTears Run Rings is sweet too: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dyoFpbG5agc
    April 15 06:01 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 And this is some of those rare ambient songs that invoke peace in my mind: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nyRVxcLXjuI
    April 14 10:28 AM
  • bakkermaarten007 I listened through it, but it only was engaging at the final song for me. Maybe just not the right time to listen to it, sorry =) . I take it you've heard of Joshua Fit For Battle? They're a screamo band but this song is far from it:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_vRESqxIdJY
    April 14 09:23 AM
  • bakkermaarten007 Well, it wasn't a show. Very cool live track though =)
    April 8 09:52 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 Haha, I really should =D
    April 4 06:28 AM
  • bakkermaarten007 If it is, it'll only be one in the USA and I don't have any money to come lol. Leaving me frustrated =D
    April 3 07:40 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 Some beautiful modern classical: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xcR8uSAIH2I
    March 28 04:50 PM

    March 28 02:11 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 Lol. Fantastic, thanks =D
    March 26 11:44 AM
  • bakkermaarten007 Totally forgot about soulseek btw. Gotta check that out.
    March 24 09:29 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 Thanks =)
    March 24 07:50 AM

  • ASnideReturns It's no worries man. Always happy to talk friends through s***, I've seen how hard it can be.
    March 20 03:41 PM
  • ASnideReturns Hey mate, you ever need to talk to someone if you feel like you're slipping back into it just come talk to me. I've had a lot of friends with alcoholism and addictions to other drugs and I'm here for ya mate.
    March 20 11:59 AM
  • InbredJed honestly, I tried to quit 3 different times. The final time I had to do a 12 Step program and I go to meetings now.
    March 20 12:25 AM
  • InbredJed yeah man, big time. All the s*** I had been repressing started to re-surface and I started having ****ed up emotions and stuff.
    March 20 12:25 AM
  • InbredJed Hey man, I drank every day for 10 years and as of now I haven't had a drink for over 3 years. Shout me if you wanna talk about it.
    March 20 12:14 AM
  • bakkermaarten007 Looks like it wasn't. Well, I don't remember where I saw this, my memory gets so hazy
    March 19 06:21 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 And this is some gloomy singer/songwriter / slowcore. It was a Sputnik review, so you could've seen it, but if you haven't: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OJmVeYwphDk

  • bakkermaarten007 Kyle Mindemann ~keeping me up to date with good emo.Thank you =D . I really love it, slowcore with emo vocals somewhat (3 min in)
    March 16 07:26 AM
  • bakkermaarten007 Haven't I? Thought I had =D. Final Touch_Hidden Agenda is soooo pretty :)
    March 14 06:18 AM
  • bakkermaarten007 Yes, I'd definitely like to hear it , thanks =). I saw your fb posts btw. Can't really help, but let's just say I understand. And you know music, you do know something.
    March 12 09:40 AM
  • bakkermaarten007 "Email:Figure out how to track us down." Lol, they sure like some dash of enigma...
    March 9 07:26 AM
  • bakkermaarten007 Beautiful. Some gems you find, some gems =)
    March 9 07:25 AM
  • bakkermaarten007 Do what you deem best :) . I don't know if it's a bad thing or a good thing, the fact that you left out some crescendo. Maybe it adds up for longer replay value, who knows.This is a cool screamo/post-rock song btw, also with lots of spoken word =Dhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k3afWds1WDA
    March 2 02:12 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 I've never seen it, but that was REALLY good. Though it left me wanting more =D

    February 25 11:35 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 So I just got enough money to buy TIPF lp. And I listened through it on iTunes, you seem right about all the cover songs sounding like a standalone song. Only that big band looks a little out of place haha =)
    February 23 05:39 AM
  • bakkermaarten007 Instrumentally it's refreshing, even with cleaner production it sounds fabulous. But the vocals lack the charm of Simpon's I think=)
    February 22 01:48 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 I shared their link 'cause I feel guilty for only paying a dollar for like five albums...
    February 20 03:25 AM
  • bakkermaarten007 Cool =) . Be sure to get that Lewis album, that's an underrated band.
    February 20 03:23 AM
  • bakkermaarten007 Oh you already have =)
    February 16 09:52 AM
  • bakkermaarten007 You should definitely review that album btw =) . Let me know if you have. Just shared the song on facebook, might as well help people upgrade their musical taste =D
    February 16 09:48 AM
  • Trebor. pretty dope
    February 15 05:13 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 Okay, that is freaking beautiful. And his story is so sad.

  • bakkermaarten007 Haha yes =)
    February 11 05:42 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 Not bad, though it left me wanting more. This is a cool old school emo song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bjB8OPHtUAY
    February 10 01:04 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 All these emo bands with only one song =) . Nice though.
    February 8 02:01 PM
  • jmnewcomer18 Yean man fosho. Their self titled is awesome too. The Flood Inside has alot of vocals but man every song is badass
    February 8 10:49 AM
  • jmnewcomer18 Yo dude i saw your post rock with vox list. just check out Long Distance Calling. Their albums "The Flood Inside" and "Avoid The Light" are amazing records. All their tracks with vox are guest singers. Great stuff.
    February 7 11:53 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 No, I didn't. Well, that explains a bit of the playfulness that both artists/bands share =)I think you've heard Cool Hand Luke, no? Nowadays they're a pretty good alt rock band (with Christian lyrics) but I didn't know they used to be pretty straightforward emohttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UB9OaqQBQtc
    February 3 06:34 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 Nice ideas to be heard and somehow very uplifting. But it's too bad that it's so samey overall.

  • bakkermaarten007 That December Drive demo compilation is definitely nice, but you surely picked the best song out of it. It's gorgeous, would be included to a best of emo list =)
    January 30 07:47 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 Thank you! =)
    January 29 06:16 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 Love it, and nice video editing! I'm loving the nostalgic touches as of late. The band never really got the attention they deserved and I think this style is even better than on their full length, more emo and less post-hardcore. Do you happen to have it in decent quality? =D
    January 29 03:01 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 Ofcourse =). Here you go: http://www.mediafire.com/download/kqrzhq1mu9tz0kj/Time Spent Driving - Just Enough Bright.rar
    January 27 06:50 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 So I bought Just Enough Bright in 320 kbps eventually haha. If you want it?
    January 26 07:53 AM
  • bakkermaarten007 Thx for the info. Also (I already congratulated you on fb but still) happy birthday, hope you enjoy it. And I hope you next year in life brings you nothing but good. =)
    January 25 07:05 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 You might have heard them before, but this rules: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S1g4LWiezr0(screamo)
    January 24 05:57 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 I guess it is =) . But I'm still waiting for my download to finish. I'm broke so I decided to search a link but they were all 192kbps and I can't handle that anymore =D. So here's hoping my torrentdl is 320 kbps =D
    January 24 05:30 AM
  • bakkermaarten007 Don't know if you've ever listened to Time Spent Driving : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ebCmzObaa_0
    January 23 11:03 AM
  • bakkermaarten007 Haha, oh boy =D . Well, if he likes what you recommended him he'll have a whole new world to explore. Lucky him =) . If you go through with this band, I'll be willing to listen to whatever it leads to =)
    January 22 12:01 PM
  • Trebor. will do, right on
    January 21 11:01 PM
  • Trebor. What I really like Arrows. I'm patiently awaiting a new album, I jam there one album and that split they did with Empire! Empire! all the time. Yeah Strictly Ballroom are strictly for ballers
    January 21 10:44 PM
  • Trebor. Arrows are underrated as **** am I right
    January 21 10:21 PM
  • Trebor. very okay
    January 21 10:09 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 Thanks. Already knew them but I lost my overview a long time ago and this suits my needs =) . Too bad for the screams, they're not bad by any means but not excellent either. Cleans are superb though.
    January 19 05:13 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 This is pretty great btw: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ONpvqlbz8I8
    January 18 03:04 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 Btw, do you have some devastating metal to rec? I'm in need of that, but can't find any worthy. I was thinking along the lines of Hopesfall and Devil Sold His Soul, but any melodic subgenre would do really.
    January 18 03:00 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 Thank you, yeah it rules :) . Sorry again for being so late with responding and all (still exams lol )
    January 16 05:43 PM
  • minty901 yeah right? it kind of seems out of place on count your lucky stars's roster.
    January 8 04:49 AM
  • bakkermaarten007 That TWBF song made me weep =D
    January 6 03:02 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 Thanks. First impressions? I haven't got much time one my hands lately, so sorry for that =)
    January 5 05:03 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 No, I haven't. They're in my 'play later' list (got to study =D ). I've accepted your friend request btw. I was planning to ask you as well in fact.
    December 30 04:48 AM
  • bakkermaarten007 I like it. This time of year is perfect for such folky singer/songwriter music, I'll have to investigate his music further =) . And I only got a box of chocolates lol =D, but I don't mind. You?
    December 28 06:23 AM
  • bakkermaarten007 Pretty samey. Like all the previous years. =) But we don't celebrate it as extensively as most Americans do =). Just gathering with the whole family and catching up. How was yours?
    December 26 07:02 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 Hey, Merry Christmas! =)
    December 24 06:32 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 Nevertheless I like her innocent, 'tom boyish' voice =)
    December 21 05:31 AM
  • bakkermaarten007 She plays in Football etc. too =) . But I actually like her better here. I do believe it is just her name though, not sure.
    December 21 05:29 AM
  • bakkermaarten007 Thanks, I will definitely be able to use some for presentations and what not =)
    December 19 03:50 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 And I would like you to know that the footage you used for 'Just Keep Dancing' is beautiful. And so is that song. Makes me weep =)
    December 19 08:52 AM
  • bakkermaarten007 I thought this was interesting to watch and well communicated. Figured you might like it as well =)http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Evwgu369Jw#t=160
    December 19 08:42 AM
  • bakkermaarten007 For me neither. They do execute the whole post-rock/emo thing splendid but there's just something missing. It's too clinical I guess.
    December 18 06:06 AM
  • bakkermaarten007 Yeah me too. I would mock people listening to that style, but every once in a while I can't help it lol
    December 15 01:01 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 A little tacky (it's faux post-hardcore), but suits the anger about uncommitted females =Dhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WSPtUv5LUBY
    December 13 07:08 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 Nice acquaintances you have, love it!
    December 11 09:17 AM
  • bakkermaarten007 And about your soulseek comment. I've heard of it, but seems like I might try it out =)
    December 11 08:54 AM
  • bakkermaarten007 Cool nineties emo: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=imCxRNbjExU
    December 11 08:54 AM
  • bakkermaarten007 here's the link : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8cC_QLNzGQY
    December 10 11:55 AM
  • bakkermaarten007 The sq is too bad to form a decent opinion, but it sounds okay =D .Also: it turns out the new 'Gates' album is pretty good.
    December 10 11:50 AM
  • bakkermaarten007 Pretty cool sound for a twinkle band : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1ICHNTInDVs
    December 7 02:58 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 Just to let you know: there's no sound in that filmmaker video you uploaded. I tried refreshing and my volume was certainly turned up, but still doesn't work.
    December 7 05:37 AM
  • bakkermaarten007 Agreed =D
    December 7 05:05 AM
  • bakkermaarten007 Last.fm playing with my heart lol http://www.last.fm/event/3735342 Mineral at Ancienne Belgique on 13 February 2014?source=home-event-recommendations
    December 5 03:03 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 It's really pretty and then i checked the rest of that EP and it was disappointing. Bummer
    December 3 01:50 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 Some nice screamo: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xZB6BhoQy2I
    November 30 01:18 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 And if you're digging the Jim Yoshii Pile-Up, these are the hardhitters (for me):http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LQdweiwZtVghttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hSLG1SM1KuAhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7PhQZ1u7Z_E
    November 27 03:17 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 Yeah, YPOFH are one of the best revival bands imo. Although they started out as a post-rock band with just an emo influence.
    November 27 03:16 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 I know what you mean, so frustrating. I mean, there's a lot of other good music around but it's my favourite genre because it lets me vent like no other =D . This past month I find myself basically listening to Mineral over and over and some Jim Yoshii Pile-Up.I will check that song out later, in class right now =)
    November 26 04:51 AM
  • bakkermaarten007 Sorry, didn't do much for me to be honest.
    November 25 02:43 PM
  • adrnsglr Hey, man. I'm just seeing your comment. Thank you. I'm sure it was by your doing that I even ran into My Winter Nerve on here. You're a fan of The Newfound Interest in Connecticut too, right?
    November 24 03:36 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 Wow, thank you. You may always let me know of cool stuff like these (not necessarily photographs) . It's very useful for me and my education =D.I will thank you with this song =) : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZDweip3WeIwIt could be I already showed you though.
    November 19 09:06 AM
  • bakkermaarten007 Just because of his past. I foresee people calling any music that's somehow emotional, emo again... lol
    November 16 08:19 AM
  • bakkermaarten007 http://www.buzzfeed.com/ryanhatesthis/new-bands-you-should-definitely-check-out-emoThe mere fact that this appeared on buzzfeed of all sites, makes me kind of afraid lol
    November 15 04:34 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 Don't know if you've heard this guy : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rDvVV1YzUh4
    November 11 03:03 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 Nice song as well, seems like I should explore bandcamp more often =D .I'm taking a wild guess by recommending you this. It's very droney and then spoken word on top of that, but I like this very much.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=klpRXJeQYEc
    November 11 04:03 AM
  • bakkermaarten007 Yes I do. It was a nice listen. Thanks =)
    November 8 05:57 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 I have listened to like half of the album, but can't quite get into it. Is it the kind of album that suddenly clicks? Because right now, I don't get why COR is such a high regarded band honestly.
    November 4 05:58 AM
  • bakkermaarten007 More minimalistic but yes =)
    November 3 03:58 AM
  • bakkermaarten007 Beautiful modern classical : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6KeBpVqkzng
    November 2 07:04 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 Yes, I have but never checked them out. It's because they are rated so low on RYM. However this song is very nice, not overly complex for post-rock but it makes me feel warm inside =P . Maybe the rest of their discography isn't up par?
    October 29 06:51 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 I just downloaded it in iTunes lol. Let me know if you want it =)
    October 28 04:34 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 Haven't tried hard to find this, but have a look at Lawn - Winter on spotify. A pretty Dutch band, think you'll like it. =)
    October 28 04:26 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 Heard it via Washed Up Emo =D . I think it's beautiful. He seems a little happier. Beautiful voice the man has. Pretty coincidental that this reaches me just today, had a very rough day and Chris Simpson is always the go to artist (especially with Mineral) then
    October 22 01:17 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 Yes, it's like Christie Front Drive does a slowcore ballad I keep imagining. The vocals are a little similar. Haha, and don't be sorry. I probably don't like it as much either. I rec'd it on a whim =)
    October 16 07:17 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 Also, this song makes me feel very peaceful. It has a slight emo vibe I think. Uploaded it a while ago http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XVaxAkY26Wg
    October 16 05:35 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 I think you might like this too: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OrJYmoRq630
    October 16 08:16 AM
  • bakkermaarten007 Ah, very dreamy. =)
    October 15 06:10 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 Been listening to The Moirai again lately, and it struck me that I would probably include Singing Nonsense On the Streets of Rome on a favourite song list or whatever =). Don't know about you but for me it responds to my despair lol =)
    October 13 07:48 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 Yeah, me too. (about the article). I do fear another round of mainstream success though haha
    October 8 06:28 AM
  • bakkermaarten007 And in case you haven't read it already, this is interesting =): http://noisey.vice.com/blog/theres-no-emo-revival-you-just-stopped-paying-attention
    October 7 05:57 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 Ever listened to Radical Face? It's some nice indie folk/indietronica http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uoCiyB8dMPk
    October 7 05:55 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 It's nice enough, haven't listened much to Purplene to draw conclusions. Did you see it on that list of mine? If I were to do it again, I wouldn't include them on that list I have to say =) . But they're definitely a recommended listen =)
    October 5 06:42 AM
  • bakkermaarten007 Nice, too bad the production is rather thin. Would be much better with a fuller sound I think. This here is something I came across tonight, it's an unusual rec but it's one of those songs that border on the line of tacky and heartfelt. And it does it perfectly =D http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rB5EevdTQrQ
    September 29 06:17 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 Also, 'Fluorescent Lights' on your last.fm, nice =)
    September 25 08:43 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 I thought this would just sound like Funeral Diner (follow-up band) but this song surprised me quite a lot. It opens so charmingly soft and then switches to mid paced screamo =) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mgiowTWCCJY
    September 25 08:41 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 Yes, it's nice but it's too bad I dislike his voice. Could've been much better for me.
    September 25 04:17 AM
  • bakkermaarten007 Thanks, not listened yet but will let you know. =)
    September 23 06:57 AM
  • bakkermaarten007 This has a certain late night feeling charm to it, don't know if you'll like it though: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qSLAYNeqtgg
