  • LoLifant Just saw that you rated Deaf Havana's recent album with 2.7 and it hurt my tiny little heart. Give their sophomore a spin.
    September 20 07:19 PM
  • DoofusWainwright Ha, it'll be going for weeks and weeks. Give it a go as and when, only if you fancy it of course.
    September 20 06:01 PM
  • DoofusWainwright Think you might have a rec for my latest list?
    September 20 04:19 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot were you still toying with covering the new GY!BE? tbh there's little chance of me having something ready that would stand up to the current default, quality-wise, and I'd rather not half-ass it. it's yours if you want it. otherwise I'm sure jack's would suffice.
    September 18 12:47 PM
  • Toondude10 eh, true.
    September 14 03:18 PM
  • Toondude10 My only real problem is why is Bosses Hang and Anthem for No State separated into three parts? I thought that was unnecessary.
    September 14 03:16 PM
  • Toondude10 I figured as much, still love it though. That being said they need to go back to making 90 minute albums again :-|
    September 14 03:04 PM
  • Toondude10 I was just about to say the new GY!BE album was streaming but it seems that you already new that.
    September 14 02:56 PM
  • Mordecai. plz get a staffer or contributor to review this band. thx in hell
    September 14 08:38 AM
  • neekafat That QotSA rating : (
    September 6 07:17 PM
  • macman76 No probs. I love reading retrospectives, year end features, etc. I've always wanted to contribute to one even if I don't necessarily have an expertise in the subject matter.
    September 6 06:55 PM
  • nocuffin thanks fam. tryin my best. working on using different outlets for my negativity (e.g. getting back into boxing, getting into art, etc.) so I can spare everyone my worst. thx for putting up with me and actually having the impetus to reach out to me when I was being an antagonistic prick. I appreciate that endlessly. keep it real. : )
    September 6 05:54 PM
  • MarsKid Still neglecting Lovedrug eh : (
    September 6 03:24 PM
  • Thealwaysopenedmind Thanks for the explanation. I was surprised to see you in the comments. Haha.
    September 6 12:55 AM
  • BigHans Bro. Gang of Youths
    September 5 11:07 PM
  • Toondude10 yeah I always check that site for big stuff like that. As for the album, I'd say it's just as good as High Violet imo.
    September 5 06:12 PM
  • Toondude10
    September 5 01:24 PM
  • Toondude10 you listen to the new National yet?
    September 5 01:09 PM
  • Toondude10 yeah I loved their first album so I can't wait until their next one drops. The singles off of it have been great so far.
    September 4 06:42 PM
  • BlackwaterPork Cheers for the info mate, much appreciated.
    September 4 04:54 PM
  • BlackwaterPork Hi there, I'm just wondering if you could inform me on what it takes to reach contributor status on this site and the steps that have to be taken.
    September 3 06:12 PM
  • DaveyBoy Still a fair way from rating it tbh, but it's up there.
    September 2 12:06 AM
  • cosmopazz
    September 1 06:27 AM
  • DaveyBoy So glad you gave Gang of Youths a listen and liked it.
    August 31 07:23 PM
  • Toondude10 disappointed with Muse over their last few albums? Well I think I found your replacement! They have a new album coming out next week.
    August 31 06:12 PM
  • neekafat Added my actual rough rating to the list for you haha
    August 31 02:27 PM
  • StarlessCore ahhh i see ur soundoffs. lmao gotta be the hype train id be surprised if this eclipsed tdag
    August 30 05:17 PM
  • StarlessCore ive stayed away from threads and informational stuff surrounding new brand new. also just not rlly into them anymore. but as the authority what is your verdict on science fiction compared to rest of discog
    August 30 05:16 PM
  • AsleepInTheBack Cheers Sowing
    August 30 03:07 PM
  • AsleepInTheBack One more little reminder to give Bloon his 5 minutes in the sun. I'll stop bugging ya now.
    August 30 02:54 PM
  • hogan900 good month for music :)
    August 30 12:39 PM
  • BigHans I knew you would love Gang of Youths bro
    August 29 04:38 PM
  • Toondude10 idk how much of a prog mood your in but I'd think you'd like this
    August 27 08:39 AM
  • DoofusWainwright That run of 5's, esp considering you will 5 the new National album
    August 27 08:19 AM
  • smaugman can you please make it a ban-able offense to reveal spoilers like lordepots is doing? it's not funny, it's just a super asshole thing to do
    August 26 07:02 PM
  • Drifter I saw your name and I was like "he's a cool guy" so I told you (:
    August 26 09:55 AM
  • AsleepInTheBack No worries, figured it was a busy period
    August 26 04:25 AM
  • Drifter Ur cool (:
    August 25 05:32 PM
  • AsleepInTheBack Friendly reminder: don't forget that bloon feature.
    August 25 03:11 AM
  • Divaman Happy to help.
    August 22 05:18 PM
  • Divaman Also, something I've discovered that you might (or might not) want to relate to people -- if you try to submit a new artist, and you discover the queue is down, don't keep resubmitting them -- that's how we wind up with multiple entries in the search engine. Instead, enter the artist you've submitted in the search engine every day or two. When the queue comes back up, you'll find that a (blank) page has been created for the artist. Then you can add albums, band info, etc.
    August 22 04:32 PM
  • Divaman Question -- if the queue is down and you do submit changes to a band page, don't those go through when the queue is back up?
    August 22 04:19 PM
  • Conmaniac awesome, thanks again for joining. when you have time we should talk later on there about possible ideas moving forward! no rush though I realize youre a busy man (:
    August 22 03:02 PM
  • Conmaniac oh sick really? well if you want to join it now and see how it looks before we start asking other key reviewers to join let me know! right now it's kind of low key but you can get a grasp on its intentions. here's the link to join: -- let me know if you have any questions

  • Artuma surprise of the year sowing hands the latest brand new album a solid 5 right out of the gate
    August 22 10:35 AM
  • dbizzles Hey, Sowing. Posted what I'm just going to consider as my first real review- if you want a give it a peep, I'd appreciate it.
    August 21 11:58 AM
  • collynas441 What do you think about Tigers Jaw and their latest record?
    August 20 03:06 PM
  • Green Baron When Kendrick released DAMN. this year in April, fans were speculating that there was another album called NATION. that would drop in three days because Easter Sunday and the theme of DAMNATION. NATION. got added to the database here and some users were petitioning Jom to let it stay but it never actually came out
    August 20 12:17 PM
  • theBoneyKing Bumped Science Fiction to a 3. This is progress...
    August 20 08:34 AM
  • TalonsOfFire That's awesome dude, I think your reviewing career has been building towards this for a long time haha. It's an amazing album. I just hope a Sealed to Me studio recording will be released at some point.
    August 19 09:14 PM
  • kingdedethefifth Man I just noticed recently haha can't believe I haven't noticed until now.
    August 18 03:18 PM
  • Divaman Thanks Sowing. I've been here 7 years in dog years, if that helps. :)
    August 18 12:56 PM
  • kingdedethefifth s*** how long have you been moderator?
    August 18 12:40 PM
  • neekafat Really? Yeah, the fact that it's a 5 alone considering everything is astounding, I can't wait to get deeper into it.
    August 18 12:27 PM
  • theBoneyKing Oh neat, didn't realize you were doing it that way. Well I look forward to following along! I'll be checking out any I haven't heard.
    August 18 10:50 AM
  • TalonsOfFire Agreed with what you said on toondude's page. Second half is amazing. Does Could Never Be Heaven remind you of Sufjan at all? I got Carrie and Lowell/Casimir Pulaski Day vibes
    August 18 10:22 AM
  • theBoneyKing When is the 2007 hall of fame list going to be posted?
    August 18 10:19 AM
  • DrGonzo1937 Sweet. Cheers man. Yeah, I've heard good things about that album!
    August 18 09:14 AM
  • Toondude10 nvm 451 might be my favorite
    August 18 08:39 AM
  • Toondude10 yeah Same Logic was fantastic, probably my favorite so far.
    August 18 08:27 AM
  • Toondude10 so...favorite song off the record? or am I going to get the "all of them" response?
    August 18 08:19 AM
  • Toondude10 fair enough, you do change your opinions quite often :-P I'm kinda expecting the front page to be completely filled with reviews for that album by the end of next week.
    August 18 07:46 AM
  • Toondude10 I'm expecting a beautiful review to end all reviews for that brand new...Brand New record (I ****ing hate that band name :P)
    August 18 07:43 AM
  • theBoneyKing Still not gonna listen to TDAG though :-P
    August 18 07:28 AM
  • theBoneyKing Oh ok good, I was half expecting you to ban me in a fit of rage which is part of why Id the rating lol. But yeah, the album really didn't do anything for me, I fail to see what makes it so special. So far I haven't seen anyone raving about it who wasn't already a huge fan so I'm inclined to believe people are just biased and rating in the heat of their excitement but who am I to say, if you're enjoying it enjoy it. I'll try it a couple more times but I doubt it'll grow.
    August 18 07:28 AM
  • DrGonzo1937 band's mini-album is out in full today, if you wanna check the rest of it out Sowing? Let us know what you think if you do.
    August 18 05:52 AM
  • JWT155 Well sowing, looks like I was right that none of Brand New's previously released singles would make it onto their next LP :P
    August 18 12:35 AM
  • neekafat Agreed, on first listen the new album is better than Devil and God
    August 17 11:52 PM
  • theBoneyKing Sorry about the Brand New thing earlier, something about the way the band is received here just kind of pisses me off for some reason, I've tempered myself though. I'm going to listen to Science Fiction with an open mind and hope for the best (and then if I give it a 2 again it'll be genuine :-P )
    August 17 09:08 PM
  • Conmaniac it's basically a skype but with a ton more features and it doesnt have video chat yet. really helpful for group chats on a bit of a larger scale (10 ) which is why it'd be perfect for something like this. just want to get together a lot of reviewers, hopefully some staffers as well that can motivate/help up and coming reviewers.
    August 17 10:30 AM
  • Conmaniac hey Sowing! so I've made a discord server (basically a glorified chat room) specifically for writers on sputnik and although I havent opened it up to the public yet I want to get your views on it and see if you might be interested in joining/having other staffers/contribs join! it's basically a place where people can post their reviews that are in progress and get feedback on them. if you want you can email me about this ( I'd love your input
    August 15 04:56 PM
  • literallyzach have you listened to dua lipa's debut at all? new rules is probably the most fun i've had with a pop song this year
    August 14 04:25 PM
  • LogicTumble Cheers again for taking the time to listen to my album. I'm trying to figure out how to better get it out into the world, so let me know if you have any tips or if you know anyone who you think would be interesting in reviewing this sorta thing!
    August 4 02:26 PM
  • rabidfish it's musical abortionsIt's already under Dead(US) just found it. Pls delet.
    July 31 09:57 AM
  • rabidfish yo added an EP but it's the wrong band... the real band is under the same name and can't find it, so i dunno if it needs be added or not.
    July 31 09:52 AM
  • SoccerRiot It was just gonna be a regular group on Facebook where people post new reviews and share new music, etc. I figured since there was a contrib group on FB, it'd be cool just to make a broad group for anyone from Sput to join, whether they're user, contrib, or staff
    July 30 05:25 PM
  • SoccerRiot Created the group, that is?
    July 30 05:12 PM
  • SoccerRiot Hey Sowing, I was gonna create a Sputnik chat group on Facebook. I just wanted to ask the mods' permission first in case there might be a reason not to. Would it be ok if I went ahead with doing so?
    July 30 05:11 PM
  • theacademy dude i HAD to feature that list
    July 30 03:02 PM
  • Toondude10 this might interest you, it has Ed and Riley from Thrice in it:
    July 28 08:26 AM
  • Toondude10 and yeah I use that site all the time. Really reliable, especially for very unknown artists at times.
    July 27 09:03 PM
  • Toondude10 I enjoyed the heck out of it. I like it more than their his last one which might be good news to you since if I remember correctly you didn't like Hand Cannot Erase.
    July 27 08:58 PM
  • Toondude10 steven wilson leak, in case if you're interested:
    July 27 02:43 PM
  • Atari glad you're doing alright and seem to have a positive outlook about it. I know it's a touchy subject but until it happened to me I had no idea just how common it was. just remember, it's nobody's fault, this s*** just happens unfortunately. anyways if you ever need to talk feel free to shoot me a message (
    July 27 02:17 PM
  • Atari also sending positive vibes your way. I thought I was gonna be a dad 2 years ago as well so I can relate, hang in there bud
    July 27 12:35 PM
  • Toondude10 METN was pretty good, 'I've Got Friends' and 'Pride' were probably my favorites.
    July 27 07:50 AM
  • LandDiving Anytime, Sowing. Hope you and your partner get through the situation okay.
    July 27 07:44 AM
  • LandDiving heya, just saw one of your comments in the MO thread, and i'm sending you well wishes. i hope you're okay, much love
    July 26 10:09 PM
  • neekafat Hey Sowing! It was a bit ago but not sure if you remember my review for Coldplay that I entered in competition and if you had any pointers for my future reviews?
    July 26 09:09 PM
  • LogicTumble Cheers dude - You're a straight up hero for taking the time to listen! And thanks for the feedback, please keep any thoughts you have coming my way =)
    July 26 04:05 PM
  • Toondude10 so that Manchester Orchestra album is that good huh? Never actually listened to them before so I figure now's a good a chance as any.
    July 26 08:11 AM
  • LogicTumble Cheers for all the fantastic reviews over the years, you've introduced me to a ton of great music. Just this morning I read your MO top 15 and was reminded of so many amazing songs. I was wondering if you'd be interested in reviewing my album, which is a whole spoken word set to music deal I know you love a strong lyric, so I'm hoping I've managed to pen one or two. You can find it on bandcamp here: , but it's also available on spotify etc
    July 26 07:26 AM
  • Rowan5215 true! just thought it might be a little cruel to the users teasing em with an early review. I've written a weird sentimental/highly personal piece for this one so it'll be interesting to see how it goes down...
    July 25 08:36 PM
  • Rowan5215 gets better on every listen for me, think it's compositionally their best even tho they'll never top Like a Virgin for lyrics. Safe to say my rating will be higher than yours but goddamn there are just so many cool little layers and subtleties that I'm still encountering. I was actually gonna ask with promos like this, are we allowed to drop reviews early or do we still wait for the album release/stream?
    July 25 08:27 PM
  • Divaman All I can tell you is, every time I started to think "I'm old", I looked bad later on and laughed at myself for believing it.
    July 25 07:04 PM
  • danielito19 figured about as much, thanks anyways.
    July 25 02:10 PM
  • MarsKid Now works too if that's cool
    July 23 02:27 PM
  • MarsKid I'll be able to one of those days, I'm going to double check my work schedule to see which one is best.
    July 23 01:43 PM
  • Toondude10 new NIN is dope af
    July 21 08:47 PM
  • SoccerRiot How's it going, Sowing? This review is my entry for the review competition. :]
    July 20 08:56 AM
  • Divaman Belated Happy Birthday, Sowing. Thought I was ancient when I turned 30. As it turns out, not so much.
    July 19 03:20 PM

  • DeadlyNightShade Hey Sowing, I will be posting my review for the newest Teenage Bottlerocket album today just wanted to give a heads up in advance!
    July 18 02:41 PM
  • danielito19 hey is there any chance of adding new genre tags to the system or is that not something that sput has the resources for atm
    July 17 01:38 PM
  • Rowan5215 dunno how I'd rank it yet but damn the last two songs are god tier
    July 16 11:06 PM
  • Rowan5215 uggggggghhhhhh ok I was gonna wait but I'll listen now. damn you and your sweet tender hyperbole
    July 16 10:19 PM
  • Rowan5215 my hype was already at maximum thruster and then I read the accompanying press release and saw that they compared it to the soundtrack of Twin Peaks... is this heaven??
    July 16 10:14 PM
  • cosmopazz hey sowe can you approve my pole younger news article b4 this website goes down again, i'm departing tomorrow for 2 weeks so it'd be a nice gesture
    July 16 05:49 AM
  • Spec It's more a "me-issue" haha. Was told to go kill myself so many times, mostly by my ex gf, that my current girlfriend and I sarcastically text each other all the time saying "should i kill myself?" Sounds weird but it's lost all meaning to me (thank god)
    July 15 04:16 PM
  • Spec Thanks for the personal response! Its all G, I don't really care tbh.
    July 15 04:01 PM
  • DoofusWainwright Tried 'Harry Patch'...very different. Hard to classify it as a Radiohead song almost. Liked it, not enough to download it yet but I'll revisit it and see if it puts some more hooks in me.
    July 14 11:04 AM
  • macman76 Just got the wp login!
    July 13 01:38 PM
  • neekafat I love that Paramore is your only 5 that doesn't have a sound off lol, classic album for sure!
    July 13 12:49 AM
  • DoofusWainwright The latest B-Side 'Ill Wind' is pretty good too, the last couple of minutes the layering is perfect on that one
    July 12 03:20 PM
  • DoofusWainwright I know 'Spectre', I put that one on my Top 100 list, I'd love a full James Bond album collaboration between Radiohead and Portishead.
    July 12 03:19 PM
  • DoofusWainwright Haven't checked it yet, good reminder
    July 12 03:10 PM
  • LandDiving ditto what butcher said sowing, thanks so much :~)
    July 8 09:15 PM
  • butcherboy happy anniversary and thanks very much for the promotion..
    July 7 05:58 PM
  • collynas441 What do you think about the latest Manchester Orchestra singles and do you have any plans to review the album?
    July 2 07:26 AM
  • leviegalapon Hey Sowing, I released another American Diner album and for some reason its giving me a hard time uploading the album art on it again. If you could help fix it, I would really appreciate it!
    July 1 10:35 PM
  • CaliggyJack Have you seen my Buckethead lists? I cannot believe I did all of that but I was wondering what you thought about the project itself.
    June 27 02:53 PM
  • DoofusWainwright Dunno if you have heard other Radiohead B-Sides but 'Talk Show Host' and 'Cuttooth' would both make my top 20 favourite Radiohead songs. 'Fog' and 'Worrywort' are both essential spins too. If you want to get fully retro 'Bishop's Robes' and 'Banana Co.' are decent Bends era B-Sides too.
    June 27 01:26 PM
  • StKiyo hey man, love your reviews, and you seem to love Brand New as much as me(or even more). what do you think about Sealed to Me and what do you expect of the next album?
    June 25 10:24 PM
  • barcafan21 sowing: complains that june is going to ruin his objectivity, promptly listens to 5 albums between katy perry and kesha to ensure that doesn't happen
    June 25 05:15 PM
  • fromtheinside Ooooooooh! I was wrong there; either way I love it. Hope your well
    June 25 03:11 PM
  • fromtheinside is your prof pic a relient k ref? or did i orverthink
    June 25 02:36 PM
  • fromtheinside you're my fav reviewer. i think i've said that already but that lorde review; lordy
    June 24 08:07 PM
  • DoofusWainwright For some reason the band are having trouble getting the album on itunes/Spotify in the States
    June 22 01:14 PM
  • DoofusWainwright Hope this should work for you
    June 22 01:13 PM
  • DoofusWainwright Someone else is out there paying attention then, good to know. I'd say try and find time to give it a spin, might surprise you. Can't believe the 2017 chart isn't up yet, sure there's method behind the madness and it'll suddenly spring to life.
    June 22 06:45 AM
  • DoofusWainwright Thanks for getting the review featured, I'm really intrigued if the album/band can find a following here. Also, when does the 2017 chart go up?
    June 22 01:56 AM
  • DoofusWainwright I think I can rustle up 2 signatures on a petition to get my Flotation Toy Warning review featured - does it make a difference if one of them is SandwichBubble aka the man with 16,000 album ratings? Seriously, the album is incredible, if you have 'In the Aeroplane' 4.7'd you should give it a go. This band could get an audience here, they really deserve it.
    June 21 07:38 AM
  • DoofusWainwright Can a band called 'Flotation Toy Warning' get bumped to the main page?
    June 21 05:37 AM
  • Atari Feel free to review it if u want my man. I really like the title track and 1234. And aboard my train reminds me of a much slower Dorothy. But yeah not as exciting as his last one but also not really bad at all like you mentioned - which makes it a hard one to write about!
    June 19 05:31 PM
  • Atari It's not as good as singing saw but once you get past that it's still pretty good. I read an article where Morby said SS was more Bob Dylan and this one's more Lou Reed (and I'm really not all that familiar with his stuff but it explains the calmer approach I guess). Still haven't had a lot of time to let it sink in yet, but we'll see ;)
    June 18 06:33 PM
  • neekafat Lemme know whatcha think of the new Royal Blood album! It's not as bad as everyone says on here, tho it's definitely not as strong as the debut
    June 18 05:58 PM
  • Nbehre11 Awesome, thanks for the recs! Actually happened to read your review of Prologue earlier today and am really liking what I hear there. I'll check the others too, appreciate it!
    June 17 06:03 PM
  • Nbehre11 Hey Sowing! Got any good sad folk/singer songwriter recs for me? Looking to change it up a bit from the sad indie rock that I usually frequent... stuff similar to fleet foxes/tigers on trains/sufjan I guess haha. Thanks!
    June 16 11:29 PM
  • barcafan21 do you prefer fleet foxes or tigers on trains
    June 16 05:27 PM
  • musicallychallenged thanks for the info, appreciate it
    June 16 12:29 PM
  • ashcrash9 yo Sowing, you ever listen to Portugal. The Man? Their new record's a blast and feels like it'd be up your alley, I think. You're Sput's resident pop reviewer anyway, it'd be a shame to miss this one imo.
    June 16 10:50 AM
  • TalonsOfFire Yeah I'll try to write something up for it
    June 13 01:51 AM
  • Wright Thanks!
    June 12 09:42 PM
  • Stereochrome1 Hey Sowing, I'm having some issues with uploading album art for this record. Any Tips?
    June 12 05:31 PM
  • TalonsOfFire Hey Sowing are you gonna review Planetarium?
    June 12 04:27 PM
  • Wright Sorry, didn't mean to spam. Computer froze lol.
    June 12 04:25 PM
  • Wright I really like your Antlers reviews, as well as your pop reviews in general. And I'd appreciate it if you read mine!
    June 12 04:24 PM

  • Homogenic good morning. did you listen katy perry's new album which is called "witness"? i'm shock that it's huge copycat from "1989" and no one spoke about this problem so far. also it has song "swish swish", which is tribute to taylor. hope to see your objective opinion on her "magnum opus". somehow, it deserves some attention from you. thank you!

  • musicallychallenged yeah it was for a new artist. any estimated timeframe on when that issue will be fixed?
    June 9 02:55 PM
  • musicallychallenged sorry to bother you but you seem like an active mod. I keep trying to submit an artist to the database but servers just can't seem to take it. any workarounds? i resized my image to be like 200x200 px and that didn't work. I have a review written for the album and everything

  • collynas441 Hi! How are you? Do you have any plans to review the new Alt-j record?
    June 4 03:21 AM
  • Lucid did you hear planetarium yet? you're the staff sufjan stan after all~
    June 2 10:03 PM
  • Toondude10 just in case if your in the mood for some epic prog rock
    June 1 09:11 PM
  • xtrole Nice job on the One More Light review. With all the negative ones, yours was a breath of fresh air.
    May 26 08:01 PM
  • Dylan620 Looking forward to it :D
    May 24 08:15 PM
  • Dylan620 Just out of curiosity, which other Linkin Park tracks would make your top 15 if you were to include their material from Minutes to Midnight onward?
    May 24 06:49 PM
  • KevinKC I never liked Linkin Park and I don't intend to listen to One More Light but please write a review, the general sadistic onanism around the weakness of the album is inhuman and appalling.
    May 24 03:41 PM
  • Green Baron is Irving still MIA?
    May 23 11:26 PM
  • xtrole You should write a review for Linkin Park's new album. The other ones are way too critical. Cheers!
    May 21 07:58 PM
  • LandDiving thank you! keep up the excellent writing :)
    May 21 08:54 AM
  • Toondude10 ehhh I kinda take that back, they're in the realm of pop-punk the same way Brand New is. It's that pop-punk/alt-rock fusion so I'm not sure whether to classify them as one or the other.
    May 21 08:25 AM
  • Toondude10 Their later albums I don't really consider pop-punk honestly. Even so they're really great, especially the album The Greatest Generation.
    May 21 08:19 AM
  • Green Baron Mr. Season, could I get my review featured? The other one's been up for a while already.
    May 20 09:30 PM
  • Toondude10 Have you ever listened to The Wonder Years at all? If not I feel like you should.
    May 20 08:01 PM
  • LandDiving hiya sowing, i tried to add a songwriter called Many Rooms to the database and the site kept freezing, but i logged in earlier and discovered that all of my 10293812 attempts had worked at once. is there any way you or someone else could the rest of the entries so there's only one left? thanks in advance! sorry i'm hopeless at interneting :~)
    May 20 10:17 AM
  • DrGonzo1937 or here:
    May 19 12:16 PM
  • DrGonzo1937 Our second new song, Sow. Let us know what you think, man.
    May 19 12:16 PM
  • starboystargirl Was wondering what happened. No worries!
    May 17 04:08 PM
  • Winesburgohio thank you!!!! x
    May 17 07:28 AM
  • Winesburgohio hello! as the grand fromage in the hierarchy of sputnik music dot com -- i'm trying to suss an i/v with Jon Abbey who runs Erstwhile Records, if it's a goer can i pls get a member of staff to post it to the blog on their account? yes i am difficult and impudent, though not importunate if you refuse. Oh gods, let Olympus speak favourably of me! Best wishes xx
    May 16 06:59 PM
  • neekafat No problem! BNE of course is No. 1, s/t has a special place in my heart. The only thing I can see it possibly topping is the debut
    May 15 07:53 PM
  • neekafat Love the new Paramore review man, we seem to see eye to eye on a lot of things even though I think that album isn't quite as good as the rest of their stuff. I think it'll grow on me over time!
    May 15 12:15 PM
  • nocuffin ahh, it should be alright. sorry (again) about the mess.
    May 15 11:37 AM
  • Atari I'm actually not that familiar with the goo goo dolls recent stuff but I stumbled across their new ep and thought the opening track was pretty good. I saw jimmy eat world live recently and have been on a JEW/beach slang/goo goo dolls-esque kick lol. Random but true :]
    May 14 01:36 PM
  • Evokaphile Thanks for the info! Id definitely like to up my contribution to this site. Its been good to me for years!
    May 13 09:57 PM
  • Evokaphile Hey Sowing i was wondering what the deal is with contributor status? Are the applications open only for a short period each year? Im more-often-than-not covering a side of the electronic music world thats growing really fast and visibility on here might be good for web traffic. Anyway any info is appreciated thanks in advance.
    May 13 07:24 PM
  • nocuffin as a quick question, would i be able to review singles that have (accidentally//incorrectly) been added to the database?
    May 13 02:59 AM
  • Toondude10 np, gotta say I enjoyed it more that I thought I would. That being said, I can't stop thinking "diet Chevelle" when I listened to it. Still some pretty decent stuff though.
    May 12 07:48 PM
  • Toondude10 since you were were curious about the new Seether album...
    May 12 07:43 PM
  • Voivod It's a server issue for sure. The day after yesterday, site allowed me 5 album additions and then nada. There's just no logic to it, whereas almost every other content generating site function works as it should.
    May 12 06:11 PM
  • Atari curious what you think if you hear the new goo goo dolls ep my man
    May 12 12:03 PM
  • Toondude10 touche. that reminds me, you check out that EP yet?
    May 11 08:47 AM
  • Toondude10 Yeah it's fun, but so far it's nothing else really. Then again I'm only four songs in so I'm sure there will be something that I'll dig.
    May 11 08:43 AM
  • Toondude10 Listening to the new Paramore rn, gotta say they really know how to have fun with an album.
    May 11 08:38 AM
  • Voivod Hi man, just wanted to let you know that, using Mozilla Firefox, I was allowed to add only one album to the db, before being effectively denied to add more. The same occured with Chrome. Guess I just have to be patient with this glitch, while storing future album additions somewhere conveniently.
    May 10 02:33 PM
  • butcherboy you might did this..
    May 9 06:06 PM
  • nocuffin will do. would you mind if i pass some of my future reviews by you just to make sure i ain't breachin any of the boundaries??
    May 9 08:18 AM
  • nocuffin it finna be in ur inbox hopefully : )
    May 9 07:23 AM
  • nocuffin the formality is fairly appropriate given that the aim is ~clarity~, so it's fine. gonna type out my reply noww. thank you : )
    May 9 06:24 AM
  • nocuffin : )
    May 8 10:04 PM
  • Toondude10 sh*t, good luck then
    May 6 04:31 PM
  • Toondude10 eh fair enough. maybe I'll rec him that EP the next time he shows up. speaking of which, you check it out yet?
    May 6 04:28 PM
  • Toondude10 how is he not an emeritus btw? I think he's still staff yet he's rarely here.
    May 6 04:21 PM
  • NorthernSkylark THE new low roar. I just thought that since you championed his previous album you might want to review it or at least give it a spin.
    May 5 07:04 AM
  • DrGonzo1937 Thanks a lot Sowing. Nah, we aren't signed, all indepentent at the minute. Just trying to get gigs, for some reason it's really difficult for us, which is a shame, because we play better as a live band. haha Drummer and guitarist have been playing together since they were kids, and I joined their old band, but DEEP SANDS has been going about 3 1/2 years, and we've managed to drop an EP on each year so far. ha The new song drops in a couple of week, I'll drop ya a msg when it does, if you want?
    May 4 12:16 PM
  • Toondude10 One thing for sure is that if Davey came back he would definitely like them.
