  • bakkermaarten007 They sound like Rika but with more post-rock elements, don't you think?
    October 18 09:26 AM
  • bakkermaarten007 Thanks =)
    October 18 07:12 AM
  • bakkermaarten007 I'm listening to exclusively angry music right now lol. But yeah sure, thank you =) . After a few days I might switch again lol
    October 17 02:00 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 I've only heard excerpts on Amazon lol. Decided after that that I should hear it in its totality but I never quite got there.
    October 17 01:34 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 Not a well known band. I have yet to hear their other stuff but this song has its charm: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3drHmFCaT00
    October 15 08:20 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 Ah, well. Doesn't that fall under the same umbrella? haha
    October 12 08:58 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 Ah cool. I thought their bass player had marital obligations.
    October 12 06:11 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 I might be mistaken, but I thought you mentioned seeing CFD with Mineral at some music festival right? How were they?
    October 12 10:46 AM
  • bakkermaarten007 Why do I have to be such a pretentious douchebag sometimes? Lol, Outsmarting Simon's purple album (I forgot the title while typing) is definitely a high 4. Props to you for discovering it.
    October 12 10:41 AM
  • bakkermaarten007 I have never heard previous live AF shows, but lots of singers fail to sing good live. I didn't think he was bad though, very good even with the live show keeping in mind.
    October 10 08:30 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 Sounds as they would've just finished the album. Could've fooled me, if I didn't know any better. Amazing when you think of it, 15 years after release. Are you going to another one of their shows now?
    October 10 05:18 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 I'm surprised you don't like that My Spacecoaster album tbh. 'Try To Escape' belongs with emo's best songs imo =)
    October 10 04:58 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 This guy mostly makes weird lo-fi indietronica-esque pop, but there's a good chance you might like this song (I love it): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8QGVXCJi36M
    October 9 05:59 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 I found the band My Spacecoaster a few days ago. I checked out their last.fm page and ofcourse you already knew them haha . Anyways, I've bought their album, if you want it let me know =)
    October 9 05:12 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 This is a beautiful ambient piece. Be warned, it's 18 minutes long =)https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mnbUKfBrPXo
    October 9 01:02 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 Sorry, that album didn't do much for me. Seems run-of-the-mill post-rock with hardcore vocals for me.
    October 8 06:23 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges youarethe nig
    October 8 05:32 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 Still need to listen to the bandcamp rec, it's bookmarked. Meanwhile, I discovered this mopey song that I like too much:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oOyTm8frYNE
    October 4 08:39 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 Wow, that's a very cramped term doing these two intensive occupations. It's admirable, just so you know.
    October 3 09:32 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 I should read the book tbh. But there are so many in my to-read list lol. Right now I'm reading a classic: The Unbearable Lightness of Being. I recommend it highly if you are in touch with your existential side. You can read it quickly if you want to, but it serves best with thinking pauses between some passages. (it's a mixture of philosophy and fiction)
    October 2 07:27 AM
  • bakkermaarten007 I reckon you've listened to Fear Before The March of Flames before? If you have, you'll be familiar with the quirky elements, that this song also has. It's a solo project of one of the singer-guitarists. I love how it sounds playful yet very cynical: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_p_fiv8kgaU
    October 1 05:24 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 The post-rock song is from TPOBAW, it's nice but way too short for me to truly captivate me. I guess you like that movie/ book a lot, seen you reference it a few times on here =)
    October 1 05:23 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 I like that EP. It's a pleasant listen, but nothing really sticks though.
    September 30 06:42 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 "because I didn't want to be there because I was just tired of school and had no idea what I wanted to go for". Sounds very familiar to me, still dos partly =) . It's a huge bummer that your flight got cancelled. I understand people wanting to commit suicide but I'll never understand those who do it so publicly.
    September 27 09:44 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 And yeah, women =) , haha. I've creatd this (wrong) mindset for myself in which I extremely degrade love to a superficial thing all just generated by our bodies nature (which is actually true). But that's just a way to cope with it and understanding something doesn't take the magic away. Hey, have fun at AF. You'll cherish it afterwards I'm sure.
    September 27 05:16 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 The problem with that is you don't get to assess it at the finish line and then go back. I know how frustrating it is. I don't know however how exactly the educational system works in America. I'd say to try it out for one semester and then maybe switch if you can, but maybe that's not possible. Do try your best though, even when you don't feel like it anymore. I've wasted two years and the regret will forever 'haunt' me. =)
    September 27 05:14 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 I have no idea if this'll be up your alley, but this is underrated imo: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Zc5WBNzlLE
    September 27 06:32 AM
  • bakkermaarten007 You have inscribed in a study discpline some weeks ago (medical assistant right?) : how's it going for now? I'm not a preliminary example of a student (wasted 2 years) but I did turn around some hopeless situations lo, so if you need some motivational talk or other advice, you may always ask.
    September 26 06:36 AM
  • bakkermaarten007 Do you mean like life in general? Well, that's been steady in its slowness haha. I do have my degree of trendwatching now (it's pretty stupid in hindsight) and now I should be on the lookout for work but I don't know where to start. And I'm still in love with this girl who is in a relationship so I can't reach out to her. Lol, plenty of reasons to still listen to sad tunes I guess, but all in all it could be summed up with that I've become more stabile emotionally, more burnt-out passionately =)
    September 26 06:34 AM
  • bakkermaarten007 Haha, would he not fully realize the impact he's had on the emo genre in general or is he just so humble.
    September 21 07:30 AM
  • bakkermaarten007 That's so awesome. I just saw your picture. Must feel like life is complete haha?
    September 20 04:55 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 Thanks man!
    September 16 06:07 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 Is 'Three' also in 320 kbps? If so, yes I definitely want it thanks =) . Don't bother about the rest of the discography, I don't believe I'll get to that.
    September 15 06:07 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 Few and Far Between's 'Edison' sounds so cathartic towards the end. It's been a while since I've got my mood stirred so exquisitely by one single song. wow.
    September 15 09:53 AM
  • bakkermaarten007 Have you ever heard The Wrens? I've been listening a lot lately. They have a very eclectic style (some downright sad, some downright weird), but I think this song might give you an idea how they sound: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FditI_wlg6o
    September 14 05:10 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 That's sweet haha. It's not very clear from the recording, but were you happy with his vocal performance on this? It just seems like a daring choice to play this song live after all these years. Lol, I try to sing it sometimes. I can keep up just until the last lines, then my voice breaks down lol.
    September 14 05:06 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 Thanks. Funny how the world seems so small, I think I've heard of that Lovelettertypewriter guy before. On one of my quest for Mineral info. Do you roam Soundcloud a lot? I just have a lot of trouble digging through all the crap that's on there too =/ . But I could be doing it wrong haha.
    September 10 08:52 AM
  • bakkermaarten007 That talk with Gabe sounds amazing. It's odd to hear how one of our 'heroes' leads a pretty normal life now, aside from the reunion shows. I am glad to hear the show delivered, hopefully it'll do in Europe as well, haven't figured out which show I'm attending yet. Also: I hope they don't stage dive lol.
    September 8 12:15 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 Are you satisfied with the outcome of the show?Also: I know you rec'd me that Invierno song. But have you listened to the entire album? It's very solid. Right now it feels like it could have been a seminal emo album if they sang in English.
    September 7 07:44 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 Have fun tonight.
    September 5 06:25 PM
  • BeeRyan Hey, I saw you liked the Movies album I posted about. Glad to hear it!
    September 5 07:26 AM
  • bakkermaarten007 Yeah, I really think they're (well, the one song I've heard atleast) great =)
    September 3 09:18 AM
  • bakkermaarten007 this is great: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IdsAP_YNboE
    September 2 10:50 AM
  • bakkermaarten007 Arnold's Drive-In is pretty good. Still haven't run out of obscure emo bands, I see =)
    September 2 10:35 AM
  • bakkermaarten007 Hah, awesome. I like Palisade a lot, so an alternate version would be very welcome.
    September 1 05:46 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 And this appears to be an alternate version of five, eight and ten https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rPm7k5KF5ZE
    September 1 10:18 AM
  • bakkermaarten007 Just a short video of Mineral's band practice under the moniker The Parking Lot: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7YbgoZtC-9Q Seems great, though Chris can't yell as before, but I wasn't expecting him to.
    September 1 09:56 AM
  • bakkermaarten007 I'm sure I've heard the FAFB song before a couple of years ago, but I can't remember where. Or it'd have to be a super similar song. But yes, definitely a special band.
    August 30 04:49 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 Okay, if you know of someone who would like to go, let me know. =) .
    August 30 12:21 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 I have actually, because I saw your rating =) . Not sure about them, need to listen more. I was wondering btw if you'd like another Mineral ticket for september 7th. I can't go and it's non-refundable. I don't know if you'll get in with it, because it has my name on it. But if you want, you could try. I'd upload it for you.
    August 29 09:14 AM
  • bakkermaarten007 Sounds hard. Sucks that you missed the first week. Anyways, you'll get through it. I believe you're a smart man =). Good luck!
    August 26 02:09 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 So what are you studying for? (saw your fb post a minute ago)
    August 26 08:20 AM
  • bakkermaarten007 I haven't listened yet. But I've read that he can, at times, go all the way electronic with blasting beats and all... so that's a downside for me.
    August 26 05:07 AM
  • bakkermaarten007 Okay, that wasn't an Italian band. Now I feel stupid
    August 24 04:42 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 Yes, it's lovely. Italians have some nice emo bands overall. This song sounds surreal to me, though rym genres state the artist is IDM. Well, this is one IDM song I like thenhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y8eQR5DMous
    August 24 03:09 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 I wish I was American.
    August 21 05:06 AM
  • bakkermaarten007 Oh you're a lucky man. I'll have to outwait Mineral and I"m definitely not seeing CFD. Is Denver far from where you live?
    August 20 03:44 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 Thanks. Will check it out later (thought I had to let you know, since I'm busy doing re-examinations again lol. Every year this time practically)
    August 14 06:26 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 I can barely recognize his voice. I don't know if it's the adjustment for being so long out of this style of singing or just his vocal cords aging. I really wonder how he'll sound in the concerts.
    August 14 06:56 AM
  • bakkermaarten007 Well yes, I care. That's what's the 'shamefull' part was for =)
    August 13 06:43 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 I shamefully admit that I stopped listening after two tracks.
    August 13 06:32 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 Lol, the official Mineral channel (if the name is an indication) has just subscribed to me on Youtube. Probably because of the one video I've uploaded of theirs. Still cool though.
    August 7 07:29 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 You're so lucky to be able to attend both AF and Mineral. Imagine if someone told you this two years ago =D . Btw, the odds for NY are looking very slim right now. I'm still exploring travelling and hotel options but the price difference between NY and London is insane tbh. Would come down to 1000 dollar difference more or less. Have you already booked a place to stay?
    August 5 06:11 AM
  • bakkermaarten007 Ah no, haven't heard it. I decided not to after I've seen the ratings and the horrible cover. Looks like some sort of desperate attempt at teenage emo-pop stardom to me.
    August 4 08:13 AM
  • bakkermaarten007 Well, I kinda liked the lo-fi vocals. So it wasn't a problem at all for me. It has a certain charm :)Can I ask you for the ep later on? Now I'm not really ready to dive into it yet. Lol, I digest albums at a certain favourable time, hard to explain. Which is why I so often change my mind about album ratings as well haha.
    August 4 08:12 AM
  • bakkermaarten007 That Pedestrian song hits hard. Thank you, splendid discovery again.
    August 3 02:15 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 Ah yes, I already know it. It's not my favourite though, there was another song of the same album that was really weird in a good way. Kid Kilowatt is some sort of superband btw.(still need to check out your previous rec)
    August 1 09:23 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 Soothing but I was hoping they continued in the slow direction with the drone from the start. I'm very fond of the inclusion of drone sounds in a well-executed cathartic indie rock song, be it emo or otherwise. =)
    July 31 09:23 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 The album this song's from gets very high ratings on RYM, however I can't get into it. Except for this one:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hfogHVS3OkE
    July 31 09:33 AM
  • TalonsOfFire Did you really join in 69?
    July 31 02:36 AM
  • 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 =) .

    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 03:30 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
  • bakkermaarten007 This is quite hypnotizing if you don't pay much attention to the lyrics.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hw912H10vS0
    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
  • bakkermaarten007 Thanks, it's nice. If you're interested in some refreshing post-rock : https://myspace.com/seascapesoftheinterior/music/songsSadly their stuff is impossbile to be found.
    March 23 03:47 PM
  • Trebor. nah damn that sucks
    March 20 09:21 PM
  • 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
    March 19 06:20 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 This is quite nice although I suspect you know it already;https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VF9rxmcZn6A
    March 17 08:40 PM
  • 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
    March 1 05:42 AM
  • chemicalmarriage youarethenig
    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.
    February 15 06:28 AM
  • bakkermaarten007 This is cool too =)http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bWvkdwnr7l0
    February 13 08:12 AM
  • bakkermaarten007 This is a nice take on emo: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=atLgOhHwEMY
    February 13 07:54 AM
  • 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.
    February 2 12:05 PM
  • 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)
