  • tempest-- pls sowing any zella day-esque recs from 2015?? i need them to live
    April 24 03:59 PM
  • klap thanks dude, i just started a new job last week so it's been pretty hectic. good luck w the wedding
    April 22 12:42 AM
  • VicariousIntent With all due respect my friend, how in the world does Beat The Champ prove that TMG will never craft another Sunset Tree? (which is to say they haven't already)
    April 21 07:44 PM
  • klap yeah i forgot to set them up yesterday. will fix thanks for the heads up. and i may or may not be trolling craigslist trying to find tickets to go back tonight
    April 18 05:55 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot yeah it's sorta a double album but not, I think there's a part 1 to it. but yeah, thx for the heads up
    April 10 10:24 AM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot by George, indeed it is! been looking forward to this
    April 10 10:18 AM
  • Aids listen to Beat The Champ more than once, I dare you. and try to pay attention to the lyrics and not just ~~~how it sounds~~~~~
    April 10 12:33 AM
  • klap hey man, not gonna get around to that lord huron album too much coachella prep going on this week. if you wanted to review it it's all yours. think i'm at a 3.5 with it
    April 9 12:30 AM
  • Toondude10 Damn, shame that you didn't like Hand Cannot Erase. I thought that album was fantastic
    April 8 12:23 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot cheers mannnn! btw I really think you'd like that album
    April 8 08:16 AM
  • DaveyBoy Nah, life doesn't change a great deal after marriage. It's other factors that that can happen before or after that will lead to more change, such as moving in with each other, taking out a huge loan together and of course eventually having a kid.
    April 8 08:09 AM
  • DaveyBoy I think my previous comment about the open bar got cut short because of the list link. I basically said you were a crazy so and so. You better hope a few of them don't order double strength spirits. We had a package that included beer, wine and soft drinks, but then separately bought 1-2 bottles of spirits ourselves for each of the 10 tables. And I reckon I could drink Jared under the table. But don't tell him or else he could lob on my doorstep with a challenge.
    April 8 04:22 AM
  • DaveyBoy Yeah, we tried to do the same and it resulted in that list. At least I got a fair bit of rock in there with Fooeys, Green Day, Anberlin, Van Halen and of course Def Lep. We tried to get some indie stuff in there as well, but it was too tricky. If you go to Olympus and head to page 11, towards the bottom there is the thread where I asked the Staff of the time for their opinion. There were some good recos there and we strongly considered a few.
    April 8 04:17 AM
  • DaveyBoy Here you go re wedding music:
    April 8 03:19 AM
  • DaveyBoy Thanks. Actually just looked it up and only a handful are still on spring break, with LSU being the only big one. Feel sorry for you guys sometimes, especially when it comes to work, where I believe most industries only get 2 weeks annual leave. We get 4. Come and live in Oz. By the way, when is the wedding and how is the planning going?
    April 8 01:28 AM
  • DaveyBoy Mostly irrelevant question without notice, just for my curiosity. Is it currently school/college holidays in America? Do you guys have 4 semesters over there, or just the 2?
    April 7 07:36 PM
  • klap i dug it, but i've only listened once and it was kind of on in the background. i will say i think it could have been trimmed a bit
    April 7 11:25 AM
  • Omaha Hey man, I'm not going to be able to review it but you don't need to feel bad by any means! If you hadn't decide to write something, I imagine a similar scenario would've played out- I just would've brought it up to everyone in the dibs thread. So no worries : )
    April 4 02:30 PM
  • RadicalEd Fair enough I just wanted to spare you the pain of waiting, your obviously right on the whole risk/reward thing, but then again I still do it for some reason.... (gonna be real gud lawyer one day). Obviously I'm gonna buy the CD as soon as it comes out. First impressions are really good.
    April 2 10:01 AM
  • RadicalEd Ah, fear of the police... I understand. Do you want me to send it to you?
    April 2 03:46 AM
  • RadicalEd Dude, have you checked the new tallest man on earth LP? It leaked.
    April 2 03:42 AM
  • PotsyTater stop ignoring my 2 recs btw ;]
    March 31 10:30 PM
  • PotsyTater yeah i was silentpotato and now i am lordepots but that account is banned for the time being. but yeah thats how its looking. joms got me beat im pre sure. but its ok, as long as i beat crysis every year ;]
    March 31 10:29 PM
  • PotsyTater just bustin ur balls dude. i think we talked a fair amount back in the day tho? i dont remember tbh. its sweet how mostly old users wound up in the top 8 honestly i wasnt expecting that
    March 30 07:28 PM
  • PotsyTater also new ava luna already ffs wtf
    March 29 01:15 AM
  • PotsyTater u jam this?;
    March 29 01:15 AM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot Oh I didn't see those lol. but yeah man I agree with your angle.
    March 28 11:49 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot the conversation in the GY!BE thread isn't really about your review
    March 28 11:38 PM
  • Mongi123 I didn't even know that was a thing haha. Oh well, guess if I win I get bragging rights xD
    March 28 09:38 AM
  • Mongi123 Looks like you're winning anyway ;)
    March 28 09:18 AM
  • Mongi123 Thanks again man. Also I don't even care about that match up lol if it's a popularity contest then you know that an older user will definitely win xD
    March 28 09:09 AM
  • Mongi123 Alright dude thanks. Godspeed is one of my favorite bands and I just kept think s*** should I not write about this now? Haha
    March 28 08:59 AM
  • Mongi123 Cause I've made the mistake once before, the review is gone now, but people ****ing lashed out at my for it. The thing is, I'm very experienced with Godspeed themselves, but just not the very obscure sub genre they play. I started writing it but I was kinda conflicted.
    March 28 08:55 AM
  • Mongi123 So sowing I wanted to ask for some advice: what's your stance on reviewing something that one doesn't have lots of experience in. Drone for example. I haven't heard much drone, barely any besides Godspeed, but I wanted to write about Asunder. A couple people really convinced me to, but they're one of my favorite bands and I really want to. What you think I should do?
    March 28 08:50 AM
  • Fort23 yo so what is this sputnikmadness you kids are doing these days
    March 26 11:50 AM
  • Toondude10 Yeah. It's a pretty good album too imo.
    March 25 09:44 PM
  • Toondude10 Did you check Davey's latest review? I think that might be an album you'd like.
    March 25 05:43 PM
  • fromtheinside It's ok bb. I just assumed you placed the secret bet where if Kentucky loses, I win it all no matter.
    March 25 02:59 AM
  • fromtheinside Wow.
    March 25 02:27 AM
  • PotsyTater also new Marika Hackman album is WOW
    March 23 12:17 AM
  • PotsyTater u GOTTA check the new Ava Luna alb dude
    March 22 09:50 PM
    March 22 03:48 PM
  • RadicalEd Btw. When you got some sleep. Check out the new Laura Marling album. I think it'll be right up your alley. It's on spotify.
    March 22 05:08 AM
  • RadicalEd Wow, that's hardcore. I don't think I ever made it past 24 hours without sleep. Get some rest.
    March 22 04:37 AM
  • RadicalEd lol dude, getting old? ;)
    March 22 04:35 AM
  • RadicalEd No hard feelings, just joking around. Insurrection is cool.
    March 22 04:31 AM
  • SeaAnemone I post almost exclusively in the Beer and Music thread nowadays. I would have no idea what users to even include
    March 21 07:16 PM
  • SeaAnemone lol no you
    March 21 07:13 PM
  • VaxXi, you gotta read this bro
    March 21 03:20 PM
  • DaveyBoy Woohoo. Now all us Aussies have to do is get Ben to board a plane!
    March 20 08:02 PM
  • Toondude10 Slow Riot a 3.5? Damn
    March 20 03:37 PM
  • Atari it's all good, i'm just asking since you're one of the only guys on the site who actually appreciates them
    March 20 01:32 PM
  • fromtheinside u know any good indiemetal bands?
    March 20 12:46 PM
  • Atari hey man, you get around to listening to you, me, and everyone we know's new EP? I know you enjoyed their full length so just curious to hear your thoughts if you get around to it ;)
    March 20 12:05 PM
  • Green Baron are you interested in fantasy baseball
    March 17 09:18 PM
  • LordePots this might be more your kinda thing then mine but it sounded aight so i figured id send it your way before moving on;
    March 17 04:09 PM
  • Tunaboy45 If you want a good starting point for Bjork, try Debut. It's less abstract and more accessible than Vulnicura.
    March 16 12:39 PM
  • wtferrothorn Hey, man. The new Clarence Clarity album is really great. I think you'd like it!
    March 14 01:13 PM
  • Aftertheascension Good to hear man. Best of wishes.
    March 13 09:42 AM
  • controlled one of these day we're gonna jam a tswizzle album.****ers
    March 13 04:30 AM
  • Aftertheascension you're getting married? Congrats.
    March 12 05:25 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot i think you'd enjoy, and god knows it could use a bit more love (been on the feature board over a week and only 7 rating, damnnn). and yeah, I'm scrambling around trying to find inspiration for a review as well, haha. considering reviewing Potsy's new project
    March 12 11:20 AM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot boi u should get on this Joanne Robertson album already i tell ya hwhat
    March 12 11:15 AM
  • Cygnatti please do, it's by far my fav indie folk release of 2014! : )
    March 10 03:36 PM
  • kevintsubasa Hey there Sowing. It's not an issue. I'm actually quite appalled at my review. What a load of rubbish. As for your thoughts, no feathers ruffled here. And I apologize if I seemed a bit snappy back then. Cheerio.
    March 9 01:55 PM
  • StreetlightRock you like to sprawling folk.
    March 8 10:52 AM
  • Cygnatti
    March 6 03:35 PM
  • wtferrothorn Looks like that new Kelly Clarkson broke your bad-good-bad chain.
    March 3 12:56 PM
  • cryptside Thanks a ton, man. Hate always bothering you but your insight is invaluable.
    February 28 12:57 AM
  • cryptside I can't even imagine haha. I will definitely be looking forward to it. Mind checking my latest review?
    February 27 11:40 PM
  • cryptside Nearing 250 reviews on here, quite the feat.
    February 27 09:43 PM
  • yep123 check out the new siskiyou album nervous. I think you'll like.
    February 27 08:57 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges That Dope Machines soundoff is one of the best things I've ever read.
    February 26 03:02 PM
  • Homogenic Can I write you email? It's about reviews. Very important.
    February 26 09:37 AM
  • greg84 robin, adam downer, channing, john hanson, rudy, jacob, lewis, joseph and sobhi
    February 26 07:25 AM
  • greg84 It seems I'm a wrong person to ask. I'm only an editor. I guess you need to be an admin to do that.
    February 26 06:52 AM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot I wanna say early Waxahatchee maybe? definitely similarities there
    February 25 11:20 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot well, it's pretty much lo-fi, barebones vocals guitar, with great melodies and a somber atmosphere. I'll probably do a writeup within the next few days so I'll have a better analysis of it by then lol
    February 25 11:18 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot you might like this Joanne Robertson album
    February 25 10:26 PM
  • trackbytrackreviews Hey SowingSeason, do you happen to know when this year highest rated albums chart goes up?
    February 25 02:45 PM
  • DaveyBoy Cool. Didn't want to play around in the draft for fear of stuffing it up. By the way, the idea is a very good one. A difficult to compile one, but it should make for a great and popular read.
    February 25 03:02 AM
  • Green Baron dude check out my latest review please
    February 25 12:21 AM
  • DaveyBoy SS, when were you planning on posting the Converge blog? Just trying to space the blog posts out as best as possible. Want to give the pmets post 24 hours on top as well. My latest is ready to go and I am trying to keep to a Wednesday schedule for the time being. I can post tonight my time (about 6am your time). If yours is ready, can you then wait at least another 24 hours after that? Or we can do the reverse if you like.
    February 24 09:41 PM
  • oltnabrick give my music a go, let me know what you think!
    February 24 04:22 PM
  • cryptside Haha I honestly didn't think about it before I asked for a change. It has been weirding some users out.
    February 24 10:20 AM
  • NocteDominum Thanks again for your time Sowing.
    February 21 04:22 PM
  • NocteDominum Fair call mate and I appreciate the honesty you show me. I'll note that I have done more than simply review for the contributing team, I ran the page for them and pushed on the year end features.
    February 21 04:20 PM
  • cryptside yeah, around what we are going to have in ohio. I've grown accustomed to people here overreacting when it comes to the 'white death' though.
    February 21 02:37 PM
  • SPRFanOf5H Hey Sowing, I thought I'd take the time to hit you up and ask about where I stand in terms as a writer. It is pretty important to me to hear the outputs from you guys as a writer here, I want to continue progressing as a writer and get advice as well as feedback from the best. If you can offer me that man, I'd really appreciate it. I don't wanna take time out of your weekend so hit me up whenever man :)
    February 21 02:36 PM
  • Ponton Its not an insult. You're more likely to give stuff a chance unlike the rest of the ol' grumps.
    February 21 02:01 PM
  • cryptside No worries, man. Ironically, I am on the precipice of working a double (which is 20 hours for me lol). Good luck, don't know where you're at but we have a level 2 snow emergency here in Ohio.
    February 21 02:00 PM
  • Tunaboy45 Thanks a lot, I'll make sure I carry on doing all of these things to the best of my ability.
    February 21 12:05 PM
  • cryptside Hey man, if you don't mind taking a look at my latest review I'd appreciate it. I am very anxious about it being my first as a contrib (though I don't know why).
    February 21 09:50 AM
  • Jacquibim No worries, will send you one asap
    February 21 08:25 AM
  • TalonsOfFire Understood, I sent you an email
    February 20 06:04 PM
  • NocteDominum Hey Steve, any chance you could offer some insight as to why my contributor tag wasn't reinstated?
    February 20 05:15 PM
  • Jacquibim Hey dude, just curious as to where I stood in the promotion side of things?
    February 20 05:07 PM
  • Tunaboy45 Hey Sowing, I was just wondering what I could do next time to improve my chances of getting promoted. Is there something I can do to improve my site presence or my reviews?Thanks in advance!
    February 20 04:49 PM
  • TalonsOfFire Hi Sowing, I wasn't really expecting to be promoted this year but I never really understood the main criteria or cutoff point for who would be considered a serious candidate for a promotion out of who applied. Basically I was wondering if there's anything I could do to to help my chances for next time around, or if possible if you could tell me if there's any glaring faults or anything with my presence on the site or my writing in general. Thanks a lot for your help!
    February 20 11:17 AM
  • Arcade yo dude, I can help out with finishing some of the Jane doe blurbs if you would like
    February 20 03:05 AM
  • Green Baron lol k i responded
    February 19 10:42 PM
  • Green Baron sowing go on facebook
    February 19 09:59 PM
  • Homogenic Good evening! Your reviews sounds inspiring and cohesive. Can you say something about Katy Perry's "One of the Boys" or "Teenage Dream"? She is kinda talented woman, but critics generally divided about her creative way. Our community need your qualified opinion. Thank you!

  • wtferrothorn Sweet. This is the 1st album I've heard from him, so I guess I wouldn't know how this would compare to his other albums. But Sauna is such a zen track, really puts me in a good mood.
    February 7 01:30 PM

    January 30 08:24 AM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot yo man, seeing as people are tugging on your sleeves regarding applications: which reviews would you say are among my best? just debating what I should submit
    January 30 08:02 AM
  • cryptside Thanks man, will keep my eyes peeled for it. I planned on submitting an app, no expectations though.
    January 30 07:40 AM

    January 29 11:09 PM
  • Gameofmetal You taught me to Taylor Swift, did you know that? lol
    January 29 03:52 PM

    January 29 03:47 AM

    January 27 02:08 AM
  • wtferrothorn It's an album cover? I didn't know that, I just thought it was a sick photo. What album is it?
    January 27 01:21 AM
  • wtferrothorn Sick new avatar bro.
    January 26 08:16 PM

  • Hep Kat I'm glad you enjoyed it. Didn't like Supercrush? I figured that would be something you'd dig.
    January 6 11:01 AM
  • Hep Kat i can't type today, apparently
    December 31 12:39 PM
  • Hep Kat also if you're interested in vinyl/cassette of the weed hounds LP:
    December 31 12:39 PM
  • Hep Kat i just preordered the second supercrush single from painter man recs. you can buy both the single from their, if you dig it:
    December 31 12:38 PM
  • Hep Kat also, i don't know if you know who Mark Palm is (he's most known for his hardcore/metal projects), but his newest band Supercrush would also be right up your alley:
    December 31 12:36 PM
  • Hep Kat i know i've been a dick to you in the past, but here's something i recommended to klapper that was one of my top 5 favorite records of this year. i think you'd enjoy it too:
    December 31 12:35 PM
  • Mad. Glad you dig Anubis bro, it's an incredible album and a massive grower - started off at a 3.3 for me and grew to a 5.0
    December 30 11:27 AM
  • RoyalImperialGuard Panthers dawg....holy s***.
    December 29 01:17 PM
  • FourthReich doing it on new years day my man
    December 29 12:48 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot ah. considering only 6 months ago I wrote my first review on anything ever I'm pretty stoked with my progress.
    December 27 01:20 AM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot v"ehhh not for anyone tbh"meant to say "everyone"
    December 27 01:17 AM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot i thought all the active staff voted... ? at any rate, appreciate the support dude
    December 27 01:15 AM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot ehhh not for anyone tbh, I just have a soft spot for well executed field recording stuff, and i love the drones. oh, and thanks for the compliment, good votes of confidence all around
    December 27 01:10 AM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot sweet. Deathconsciousness is still one of my favourite albums... ever... maybe. it'd be cool to see you do some write-ups on that sorta stuff
    December 27 01:08 AM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot idk if drone/ambient is something you're feeling lately, but if so try this Leonardo Rosado album as well. one of my favs from 2014 possibly, and it caught me pretty off guard (came out 6 days ago, damn)
    December 27 01:03 AM
  • fromtheinside Merry Christmas! ;)
    December 25 10:35 PM
  • cryptside Lol thanks man. I appreciate it, I just didn't want it to seem insistent.
    December 22 09:58 AM
  • cryptside Hmm, thought that I included some nicety like, "Hey do you mind checking out my list and let me know what you think?" lol. Anyway if you featured it, thank you!
    December 21 02:43 PM
  • cryptside
    December 20 03:45 PM
  • SnakeDelilah ahh, well i'm gonna be doing one for this year so be on the lookout.
    December 19 04:52 PM
  • wtferrothorn Thanks for the Low Roar recs. The album is amazing. Plus I totally agree For Emma, Forever Ago is the perfect winter album. Do you listen to Bjork?
    December 19 09:47 AM
  • Tyrael omggggggggggggggg
    December 17 11:37 AM
  • ComeToDaddy Thanks a heap
    December 17 02:50 AM
  • ComeToDaddy Not certain on how the users end-of-year list is sorted, so I don't know where the right place to ask would be, but I would love to contribute a blurb or two to the list if it's needed
    December 17 02:28 AM
  • SnakeDelilah are you doing a sowing's soundtrack for this year?
    December 16 09:54 PM
  • Tyrael YES I KNOW IM SO EXCITED !!!!!!!1111!1!1!1!1!!1!1!11! By the way: it's been a while man, how has life been treating you?
    December 15 02:40 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges "Just a friendly reminder that some of you are 6 months late with your submissions" smfh these people make me sick
    December 13 01:01 PM
  • Titan Agreed. Dallas is also 6-0 on the road, and Romo is 15/1 on the road this season. Can they stop Murray twice? BUT.......... the defense is killing us. All that good stuff on offense is neutralized by our crap defense.

  • Titan Nice! I'm actually a Dallas fan who lives in NY. Cats still got a shot.

  • Titan who ya got, 'Boys or Birds?

  • Jacquibim All good, was just wondering :)
    December 13 03:54 AM
  • Jacquibim Hey man, did you ever end up reading any more of my reviews? I actually ended up writing 3 non-metal albums in a row before relapsing and reviewing Baring Teeth heh

  • GrandpaSeth3000 Do you think that Taylor Swift actually celebrates Christmas?

  • Gyromania "But in time you'll become more self-sufficient as a result, which is something that most people with a cushioned upbringing struggle with" - this is actually a really good point. something definitely hard to perceive right now, but i have no doubts that if i make it through this i'll be more fiercely independent than anyone i know. keyword there being "if." and for sure man, i get the security thing. my lips are sealed

  • Gyromania i know i asked you this a while ago but i forget now: do you use any social forums besides this site? i think i remember you saying you don't use fb, what about AIM or skype though?

  • Gyromania you've all done so much for me and for that i'm eternally grateful. the smallest things help - messages like these, for example. it's surprising how far a little compassion can go in helping someone feel cared for. all that said though, it definitely will take a long time. the thought of having no parents anymore is one i've had a very difficult time coming to terms with. the smallest things trigger feelings of nostalgia and sadness and i can't seem to turn it off

  • JohnnyOnTheSpot I should be alright, I think the album I wanna do is out Jan 15ish. Cheers

  • Gyromania i really appreciate that, buddy =] this year has been unbearable for my sister and i and things are starting to become very, very difficult. it seems the more time goes on the harder things become (partly due to my recent self-destructive tendencies). the support from this community has been extraordinary though. i'm really glad to be a part of it. music and friends - the best medicine. it's great to have an outlet like this in these impossibly difficult times. i plan to return to writing soon

  • JohnnyOnTheSpot thx dude. do you know what date the promo applications are? I only ask because I wanna do a really solid review beforehand so as to leave the best impression
    December 4 12:36 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot Ah. In my defense, I only mentioned a handful of the 18 tracks, and was only trying to demonstrate the variety of elements, but I see what you mean. Might edit later, thx
    December 4 08:06 AM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot Hey man. Anything you think the review needs work on?
    December 4 07:32 AM
  • HalcyonMusic Hey, just wanted to mention that I enjoyed your SMA 2014, it was a great read.

  • Tyrael I Know Places and Blank Space are superb but I don't know about the rest, they don't stick...
    November 29 07:25 AM
  • Tyrael I have to admit I kinda fell in love with Shake it Off :[

  • ExplosiveOranges There was a malware bug/glitch thing, and basically it made it impossible to look at your review. 'Tis all good now.
    November 16 10:03 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges RIP Damien Rice Review

  • AmericanFlagAsh I really think you should give it another chance. Especially since you like OIW so much. CTN has such amazing attention to detail. OWI has some amazing songs, but it's never really serious. And it is covered in like a pile of sonic that is kind of overwhelming at certain points. CTN is smoother and has more depth. Mercer's vocal range becomes way wider and doesn't just stay in the high notes. But maybe that's what you liked about OIW. Idk.
    November 13 07:20 AM
  • AmericanFlagAsh I need you to explain why you have Oh, Inverted World at a 5 and Chutes Too Narrow at a 3. That is criminally low for The Shins' best work.
    November 12 10:52 PM
  • hogan900 Check the whole thing out, its honestly one of my favorite indie rock albums of all time. So many incredible songs on it, you won't be disappointed. The album also has an insane closer too.

  • OmairSh Yeah I've noticed that a new review's up quite often in the featured section. I'll be submitting it almost knowing it won't get featured :-P, thanks man. Also, when will you 5 Wish You Were Here? :-P
    November 11 10:16 AM
  • OmairSh Well, here goes nothing :-P
    November 11 10:06 AM
  • OmairSh Al right cool thanks, but a review that's a month after the date is too late right?
    November 11 10:01 AM
  • OmairSh And did you want me to provide a link to my review? When I read your comment I thought you meant provide the link in the forum.
    November 11 09:47 AM
  • OmairSh Oh I didn't know it had to be within a week of the release. In that case my review is too late since its been nearly a month since the release. Thanks though, I'll keep that in mind for the future.
    November 11 09:33 AM
  • Onirium Yeah, I don't really hear the Americana influences of The King is Dead in the new songs, but I agree it seems like they'll keep their more folk-oriented sound.
    November 11 08:15 AM
  • OmairSh Hey Sowing I wanted to ask the procedure for getting a review featured, thanks
