  • Iamthe Nightstars This was a nice find. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7eOs8jcgp7g
    August 19 05:12 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars It looks like I'm seeing Mineral twice now. In Denver. WITH CHRISTIE FRONT DRIVE!
    August 19 04:55 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars A bit of an Owen rip off but still nice. I thought the last two songs were the best. http://hospitalsports.bandcamp.com/album/whatever-happened
    August 14 06:21 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars I thought the same thing actually. I think age is definitely a factor. Many singers cant sing like they used to.
    August 14 12:44 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars He's on the last song if you care to hear it.
    August 13 06:37 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Well, at least the part with Chris Simpson is pretty good.
    August 13 06:11 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Whoah, that's pretty cool.
    August 8 07:18 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Oh, that sucks. Yeah, I made hotel reservations.
    August 5 12:02 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars So AF did a surprise show a couple nights ago and there's video of it on youtube. I'm not going to watch it yet though because I'd rather experience it live first.
    August 4 06:45 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Yeah, well you're not missing much. Lol.
    August 4 03:21 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Have you heard the December Drive album Games? It doesn't even sound like the same band.
    August 3 10:32 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars No problem. Oops, I just realized I sent you a live version of that song. You can barely make out the lyrics. Here's the studio one. I bought the ep if you want it. http://pedestrianband.bandcamp.com/
    August 3 05:36 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars I was impressed with this. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EHHNbJIbvjc
    August 1 09:19 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars This is gorgeous. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=maoSOfoC4-c
    August 1 02:22 AM
  • Iamthe Nightstars I couldn't really get into their old stuff either. Actually the only album I really liked from them was Send Us a Signal. I remember my brother showed me this song when I was about 15. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9jIvssk-Zho
    July 31 08:44 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Not really my cup of tea but unique in it's own way.
    July 28 08:56 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars This video is quite dreadful, lol. But the song itself I found pretty charming. They were from my home state and had nine members. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1yzVgA9WGPc
    July 28 06:44 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Sounds good. I can hardly find anything on them though or their official website.
    July 27 06:02 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars I hope you can still go to NY if possible so we can meet, but do what you have to. I will probably buy the mp3's of the reissue. These unheard songs have me excited.
    July 23 01:25 AM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Yeah they announced the dates on their website. That would make more sense for you but you'll have to wait until next year.
    July 22 03:00 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars It looks like Mineral is coming to the UK.
    July 22 12:09 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars This reminds me of old E!E! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=funQJVMxRXo
    July 21 11:23 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Here is a very different sounding Still Life song. It sounds like an Owen song, but this was written before Owen was around. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TX4DwTLPLkI
    July 15 06:25 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars I saw a post about them from Topshelf Records a while ago on facebook. I listened to a song but didn't really like it. This sounds decent though.
    July 15 05:36 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Wow, really epic sounding. Reminds me of Sigur Ros.
    July 13 05:53 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Thanks, ive had my old guitar for a long time now so its nice to have one thats new and better.
    July 12 03:53 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars I'm not crazy about the rest of this album but this song is so good. It reminds me a lot of Brand New. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rYc_wtSV-Wc
    July 10 09:24 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Some nice screamo. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h42Snjob1o0
    July 9 09:56 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars I actually thought the same thing about the lyrics. I know he was trying to tell a story through the lyrics but they're delivered so awkwardly kind of like they were forced. Yeah, I can't say I'm too fond of the song either.
    July 8 08:14 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars New E!E! song. http://www.stereogum.com/1690620/empire-empire-i-was-a-lonely-estate-if-its-bad-news-it-can-wait-stereogum-premiere/mp3s/
    July 7 06:04 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Yeah, I was a skater for a while in middle school but I was terrible so I quit and stuck to guitar. Haha.
    July 7 05:59 PM
  • IWillReturn **** u. ur ****
    July 6 07:31 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars I was never big into skating, but this is a great video. He is so humble and soft spoken. I found this very inspirational. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DBbmNAZWq-E
    July 5 09:06 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars The song after that doesn't sound bad either. I might have to check out this ep.
    July 5 07:52 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars This sounds good. Kind of American Football like. I never got into them too much though because their music felt a little too commercial for me.
    July 5 07:49 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars It's an indie film called Oceania from 2008.
    July 5 06:12 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars I just put this together and it turned out great. One thing I've learned from my hobby of making videos out of songs I like and royalty free footage is how easy it is to make it look good. I didn't edit this at all. I just put the music over it. http://youtu.be/F5xL8NBLr00
    July 2 11:30 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars It's cool. I can see how it's not for everyone. I just came across this. I love this song. There is no studio recording of it. This is an edited live version. The vocals and acoustic guitar are the only thing live everything else was added in. I'm not too fond of the electronic elements but it still sounds beautiful. Radiohead are really amazing songwriters. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z2hZ9CTLICs
    June 30 10:27 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Have you ever got into Taking Back Sunday? Their first album is awesome. I was just thinking about them because their original bass player is the singer for Brand New. I think you'll like this song. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xw2bCrKLbwQ
    June 30 04:37 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars I listened to them a lot in my teen years but I'm kind of burnt out on them now. I have heard The Republic of Wolves sound like them but haven't really listened to them. Other than that I can't really think of any other band like Brand New. They have quite a distinct sound. This song reminded me a lot of Brand New though their other songs are different. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nuoozvzr5NE
    June 29 10:27 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars I was looking at the hotel rates there, man they are steep.
    June 28 06:32 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Haha. It happens.
    June 28 06:28 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars You won't be able to meet up with me? Aren't you going to the one on the 7th?
    June 28 04:41 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars I'm sure you've seen these guys around sputnik before. Have you heard this song? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=51h9hFI66Hc
    June 27 09:59 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Just purchased my plane ticket to New York. I will be there from the 4th to the 7th.
    June 26 06:34 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Thanks. Yeah, I thought so too. It's been on my mind the last couple of months for the band I'm hoping to start with my roommate. I still need to find another guitarist and bassist though. I got the idea for the name from a lyric in the American Football song "Letters and Packages".
    June 25 07:42 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars What do you think of the band name "Remember Esme"?
    June 25 05:35 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Yeah, it's kind of boring. I'm sure the rest of sputnik will love it though. Lol
    June 25 04:50 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars First song on the next E!E! live. What do you think? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KMezOv9CxIY
    June 24 08:48 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Sorry to be a pain and rec you another song by the same band, but I think I might have sent you the worst song on the Memento Mori album now that I'm better acquainted with it. Lol. The album has a cool atmosphere similar to the Low Level Owl records. But if you don't like this either then no worries. http://youtu.be/VvgI1Y9iVt0
    June 21 08:39 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Haha. Did you see Chris Simpson has a guest vocal spot on the new E!E! album?
    June 19 02:38 PM

    June 17 01:45 AM
  • Iamthe Nightstars This guy from the Philippines is in an emo band called Tapestry. I was just talking to him about going to see Mineral. Lol.
    June 17 01:36 AM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Have you seen this compilation? I rec'd you the "A Rocket Sent to You" song a long while ago but never listened to the rest of it. Some really good songs on it. It's got the demo version of "Human Drama" on it which I never knew existed. Lol. http://engineerrecords.bandcamp.com/album/firework-anatomy-a-twenty-band-compilation
    June 16 01:04 AM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Pretty song. Interesting video.
    June 13 03:44 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Ever listened to this guy? This song is amazing. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lAwYodrBr2Q
    June 12 01:18 AM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Id rather see it on a computer first but decided to watch it on my phone anyways. Really beautiful. Makes me think of things i wish could have happened in high school.
    June 6 11:59 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Oh man. That sounds rad but im in wisconsin for a week so ill have to wait to see it.
    June 6 03:02 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Nice song but too bad the production is pretty shabby for how pretty the music is.
    June 3 01:55 AM
  • Iamthe Nightstars I just bought this album. It was an impulse buy, but I think I'll be happy I did. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OYMqbaj8DcU
    May 29 02:51 AM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Ever heard of these guys? They were from Germany. This song is a bit poppy but I bought their last album(I think) and it makes me think of Christie Front Drive. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wje2FfiUKcE
    May 27 10:52 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Thanks for that.
    May 27 04:22 PM
  • YoYoMancuso and then this as a follow-up. http://twloha.com/blog/recovery-relapse-and-reflection
    May 26 01:39 PM
  • YoYoMancuso you should read this. http://twloha.com/blog/present-struggle

  • Trebor. dude that's so true. You're a good dude
    May 25 04:00 AM
  • Trebor. dude thanks but I'm no saint. sometimes I think maybe I only care as a defense mechanism or something, like I care so much but is it even real?
    May 25 03:55 AM
  • Trebor. depression and anxiewtry worse than me but I think I could make her happy idk dude I'm drunk
    May 25 03:48 AM
  • Trebor. nah man I'm single right now. I'm in love with this girl Ashley and we broke up a couple of months ago. Then I started dating this other girl Ana and it was cool and all but then my love for ashley hit me hard and I couldn't do it anymore so I broke up with her. I asked out ashley again a couple days ago and she said she'd think about it. I straight up asked her if she still likes me that way and she said yes but she's really ****ede up and thinks it would go to s*** again so idk. She has
    May 25 03:48 AM
  • Trebor. wow i do not remember posting those shouts. I've been abusing drugs every night for weeks I should probably stop
    May 25 02:45 AM
  • Iamthe Nightstars I saw your post on Trebor's page and I can empathize with you on the apathy part. It sort of feels like I lost part of myself and just don't care about certain things like I used to. I'm sure weed and alcohol aren't making my situation any better, but it's still kind of sad to have to force yourself to do things you used to really love and get excited about.
    May 24 07:56 PM
  • Trebor. you're a cool guy and you don't deserve to feel like s***
    May 24 06:21 AM
  • Trebor. dude I drank too much right now and I'm r****ed thinking about it, IO talked to her todqay oh man. I kind of wish I was numb but then again idk its good top feel. I hope you can feel
    May 24 06:21 AM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Lol. I'm guessing they couldn't answer the question because they weren't able to remember what song that was.
    May 23 11:41 PM
  • Trebor. Not really, I feel numb sometimes but the underlining emotions are always there underneath. I mostly feel hyperemotional and then crash into a state of numbness. Some days I just give up on the day and don't get out of bed for a long time though
    May 23 12:05 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars I saw your Happy Particles rating. Don't like it too much? I'm not crazy about it but there is definitely some really good songs on it. This song makes me happy. I showed it to the Gleemer vocalist and he liked it a lot. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cfDLgDVEOYI
    May 23 01:24 AM
  • Trebor. If you need me though I'm on here all the ****ing time lol
    May 21 02:43 PM
  • Trebor. You need to talk bro?
    May 20 05:25 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Can't believe I never showed you this. Maybe you've heard them already? The same drummer and guitarist from AF. Their band afterward. Practically sounds like AF with a different vocalist. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zaMVd2gC2zY
    May 19 02:11 AM
  • Iamthe Nightstars It's kind of funny now, I've seen AF called emo so many times I'm pretty much okay with it now. Lol. I always did and still think it's indie though.
    May 19 01:18 AM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Yeah, I can see that. Plus a vacation will be nice since I haven't left the state in four years. Haha. In this interview Chris says his lyrics were written when he was 19 and naive. Lol. Naive. I can't write lyrics that good at 23. http://www.altpress.com/features/entry/mineral_interview_chris_simpson_2014/P1
    May 17 03:15 AM
  • Iamthe Nightstars That Benjamin Poole ep is good but it seems like he could have expanded more with some of those ideas. He has a great voice.
    May 15 10:26 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Its nice. Doesnt sound much different from CW. Mineral just announced theyre playing a festival in my state. Id rather see them in a smaller venue though because it would be more intimate.
    May 15 04:21 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Hey do you know when youre going to be in new york? I think im going to get there on thursday and leave on saturday. I havent bought the plane ticket yet though.
    May 11 08:03 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Okay, this song is gorgeous. http://youtu.be/2pna5dIVZzk
    May 9 03:05 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars I got a used cd of this album in the mail today from Amazon because I couldn't find it anywhere online. Lol. Basically Mineral worship, but it's pretty good. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0TPt6G2eiEE
    May 9 01:11 AM
  • Iamthe Nightstars I'm not sure what I think of this album yet but it's good considering most modern emo. http://insidethewhale.bandcamp.com/
    May 6 06:02 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Sure, I'll take it thanks. There's some pretty good songs on it.
    May 6 06:00 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars I'm pretty sure this song was one youtube but it must have gotten taken down. Here's the download for it. It's got a great build up. http://myfreemp3.eu/music/For Those Who Can't Wait - The Tiger Becomes A Zebra#
    April 28 11:24 PM
  • Futures Of course. I just listened to Four Minute Mile and thought it was great. Next on my list is to listen to Braid,Jawbreaker and Jets to Brazil.
    April 28 09:21 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars They have always been hit or miss for me but this one sounds cool.
    April 28 05:23 PM
  • Futures Going to get on your recs soon. You like The Get Up Kids at all?
    April 27 07:23 PM
  • Futures Dude you have incredible taste in emo.
    April 27 02:18 AM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Can't really say I'm really looking forward to seeing Into It. Over It though.
    April 26 02:41 AM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Haha. Dont be so bashful.
    April 25 08:27 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Yes i have a ticket for the 5th. I think ill be staying the weekend there so id be able to meet up with you before i leave on the 7th!
    April 25 05:51 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Aw, bummer. You can still get a ticket for the same place on the 7th.
    April 25 02:12 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars I think $20 is a small price to pay to see Mineral. I'm not sure how much that is in euros though, haha. You might want to get your ticket today when it's on sale so it doesn't get sold out.
    April 25 02:15 AM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Funny how they announce this right after we were talking about it. I will see if can go to that one but might have to go to the ohio one because its closer. Either way its an obligation or else ill be kicking myself for the rest oof my life.
    April 24 08:22 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Oh, boy. I just came across this. http://propertyofzack.com/post/83623249611/mineral-may-be-reuniting
    April 23 11:48 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars http://perfectlines.wordpress.com/2009/09/29/interview-with-chris-simpson/ Here's the interview. Yeah, it says how Chris and Jeremy quit and Gabe and Scott didn't want them to. Also there's an official Mineral website now for whatever reason. A sign maybe? http://officialmineral.com/
    April 23 11:45 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars I remember an interview with chris a while ago saying that after endserenading they were growing apart musically and that a reunion would be unlikely but i dont know exactly why they broke up. Do you?
    April 23 04:51 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Well here's to hoping. Ha. I'm pretty sure Mike never wanted to do an AF show but he finally caved. And chris is still doing music so you never know.
    April 22 10:43 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Thanks I really dig it. Would you try to find a way to get here if Mineral did a reunion show?
    April 21 08:11 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars You should try to fly over if you can.
    April 21 06:24 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars I will indeed. Haha.
    April 21 02:13 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars This band sounds pretty good but the vocals could be better in some parts. Kind of reminds me of Opeth. If the last couple E!E! EP's and splits are any indication on how the new LP is going to sound I don't think I'm going to like it very much. I'd be surprised if they tried anything new on it. They have always seemed to stick to their formula.
    April 17 05:57 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars And as far as emo goes at this point I'm just happy to find bands that keep me amused. It feels like there's nothing really new to hear within the genre.
    April 15 09:23 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Maybe it's because we've already came across the best music and now we have to wait for really good music to be written. Lol. I don't know. It makes sense though because there is a ton of mediocre stuff out there and always will be. The best music is few and far between. Or maybe we're just too picky. :D
    April 15 08:30 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Also, I don't know if you saw me post this song on youtube already but this is an awesome shoegaze band. I went to high school with them and know them personally. If you like it their EP is free on bandcamp. I wish I could find more shoegaze similar to this. http://youtu.be/Nd8fsttl7QU
    April 14 07:49 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars I've heard of Joshua Fit For Battle but never really listened to them. That song is cool though. And that Slow Dancing Society song is soothing. That album has high ratings on here and RYM so I think I might get it. Thanks
    April 14 07:42 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Here is some enjoyable post rock. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JulauHjJxeY
    April 11 12:37 AM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Nope, it's not that. There's still twelve days left on the site. Haha. If it is a show I'm making the road trip if it kills me.
    April 8 11:16 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Ha. You need to move to where there's more emo.
    April 3 08:41 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars There's a countdown for something here. I'm guessing a reunion show? http://americanfootballmusic.com/
    April 3 05:19 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars That Statistics song is great. I saw that album has a lot of low ratings on RYM though.

    March 24 10:20 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Also, happy birthday!
    March 24 04:56 AM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Beautiful. This is good stuff. I looked them up on soulseek and their album is on there so you can download it there.
    March 24 02:56 AM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Saw these guys on a music review website. Looked them up and found next to nothing on them except that were a six piece band from Michigan. I'm pretty sure they took their name from a JEW song. http://youtu.be/Jcrg3KvT_WM
    March 23 01:11 AM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Not bad. That's funny you rec me that because I was just looking for some gloomy slowcore yesterday and came across this band. This song is pretty. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jORyPnUdQ48
    March 20 12:01 AM
  • Iamthe Nightstars I know I've seen their name before but never bothered to check them out. This song sounds really good though, I'll have to check out that album.
    March 18 11:20 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Haha, you're welcome. It came up on the first page when I looked up the emo tag on bandcamp, just so you know. http://bandcamp.com/tag/emo
    March 17 12:29 AM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Just came across this. Got a real old school feel to it. http://youtu.be/dKjQS2s4Yz8
    March 16 02:06 AM
  • Iamthe Nightstars I dont think so. I dont remember at least. Pretty impressive band.
    March 14 08:42 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Why have you never showed me these guys? Lol. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rcsTYZ6mMuQ
    March 14 05:15 AM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Ha, thanks. Yeah, I relate to that lyric because about five years ago I felt like I knew all that there was to know about life but it seems like the older I get the more I realize I don't know. Here's the link. I uploaded their first ep too. It's not quite as good, but it's decent. http://www.mediafire.com/download/2bzt63t7399zn9c/Masters_and_Moderns.zip
    March 12 03:19 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars That Masters and Moderns ep is quite solid btw if you want to hear the rest of it. I uploaded it to mediafire.
    March 11 10:20 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Lol. Yeah i saw that too. Im surprised their website is still up seeing how they broke up a decade ago.
    March 9 05:57 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars I'm really digging this right now. I'm trying to find their albums to purchase online at the moment. http://www.mastersandmoderns.com/music/PromiseMeYouWontChoke.mp3
    March 7 07:46 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars The vocals are a bit strange but the music is good.
    March 2 02:25 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Thanks. Yeah, i posted it on here and some people said it should have kept going. I think i might add a loud distortion part at the end sometime.
    March 1 03:38 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Ever seen The Breakfast Club? Well this is a song I just made with an audio clip from it. https://soundcloud.com/inapril/mindless-machine

  • Iamthe Nightstars Sweet. Im glad to hear that. It was a refreshing listen. I think "can't afford the color" is probably the best song on it.
    February 23 07:38 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Yeah, i thought the same.
    February 22 01:56 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Pretty good cover. http://youtu.be/NL106DyKtis
    February 20 05:56 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars That Lewis album was one of the albums I downloaded actually. Haha. It's not bad.
    February 20 03:42 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Hey, Deep Elm is letting you pay what you want (free) for all their albums. http://www.deepelm.com/music/
    February 19 08:26 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars It is really sad. What the hell is a 17 year old doing heroin for?
    February 15 03:14 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars This song was written by Justin Veatch when he was 15. He died from a drug overdose when he was 17. This song is on a compilation album made for him with his songs and covers of his songs from other bands such as Owen and Moving Mountains. If you like it and want the album I can upload it for you. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2acOsgo3hA4
    February 13 06:40 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars The Rookie Town is pretty good. It's nice to hear a new emo band that isn't all about the twinkly thing. The East Highland song is a bit different from my taste but not bad.
    February 13 06:36 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars I've heard that song before. Another one song band. Haha.
    February 10 04:01 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars This made me cry. http://youtu.be/p4reVOTMot8
    February 9 01:12 AM
  • Iamthe Nightstars They were on that same emo diaries album with Penfold.
    February 4 11:32 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars No, I haven't heard them before but I dig this song. I might have to look into them. I uploaded this song a while ago but it came up today on random on my zune. Quite impressive for an emo band that isn't so popular. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Sm5nUEQA_c
    February 4 11:16 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Yeah, I agree. It seems like each song has a basic pattern on guitar and the rest of the instruments just follow along. But, I'm happy to listen to it. By the way, the guitarist from The Six Parts Seven is the same guy from Talons' if you didn't know.
    February 3 12:56 AM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Here's a nice listen. Free instrumental emo album. Post emo, I guess. Haha. http://robotpark.bandcamp.com/album/robot-park
    January 31 02:55 AM
  • Iamthe Nightstars I liked Somewhere a lot too. Some of those songs are quite mediocre, but it was an early demo after all.
    January 31 01:02 AM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Yeah, half of the songs on their demo are in 320 including that song on this link. http://www.mediafire.com/download/w8739jlt9jewh2e/december drive- demos.rar
    January 29 03:21 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars I just got done making this. It's a December Drive song and I'm guessing you haven't heard it because it's a demo and not as popular. Anyways, I actually took some time to edit this video rather that most of the others I've recently uploaded. Thought you'd like it. I love the chorus. http://youtu.be/7l_ILl51pTM
    January 28 10:36 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Thanks for the birthday wish. I'll download that album if you don't mind uploading it. I listened to it the other day on spotify and it was pretty good.
    January 26 09:52 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars I haven't heard of them. Not bad but for some reason screamo has always been harder for me to get into than emo. Also, cdbaby.com has all of their albums available to download in 320 when you purchase them just so you know.
    January 25 05:05 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars I've heard a couple songs. This sounds nice. Is that album worth checking out?
    January 23 05:00 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars The other night I asked my roommate who is a drummer if he would want to start an emo band with me. He said he didn't know I was into that kind of music and then mentioned Hawthorne Heights. Lol. I had to give him a history lesson.
    January 21 06:14 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Sounds pretty good. You might like these guys. http://youtu.be/lT_4IMqAn1s
    January 18 05:33 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars I'm not too familiar with these guys but this cover sounds fantastic. http://youtu.be/qA1pRFFOXrE
    January 15 06:50 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Its pretty ok. Nothing to get excited about.
    January 5 07:45 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars New Zookeeper album. http://zookeeper.bandcamp.com/album/pink-chalk
    January 5 04:23 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Saw these guys on sputniks home page. Thought you'd like them. http://youtu.be/qKOUhHzg5uw
    January 5 03:22 AM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Ever heard of these guys? Post Christie Front Drive project. Seems kind of weird how unknown they are. http://youtu.be/VEvJsG5fYkA
    December 30 04:12 AM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Just a couple of checks and some clothes.
    December 30 12:46 AM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Like most of my Christmas' it was small just with my parents and brother watching Christmas movies Home Alone and National Lampoons Christmas Vacation. Get anything cool? I'll be seeing this guy next month with Gregory Alan Isakov. Such a great live performance. http://youtu.be/gdJLh-gqHsE
    December 26 10:25 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Merry Christmas. How was yours?
    December 25 08:37 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Oh cool, I could never get into Football etc.
    December 21 03:17 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars All girl emo band. http://youtu.be/FCrrGGcj3ac
    December 21 03:23 AM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Neat video, very true. And thanks I got the footage from this site where there's tons of royalty free footage you can download and use. https://archive.org/details/movies
    December 19 03:06 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars I'm not crazy about that Gates EP either. They're definitely a good band, but they just don't really leave a lasting impression on me.
    December 17 11:26 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Not bad but I grew out of that style of post hardcore a while back. I still listen to Senses Fail once in a blue moon though. Haha.
    December 15 01:26 AM
  • Iamthe Nightstars I like it. Makes me think of "Take the Picture Now".
    December 11 07:50 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars An acquaintance of mine made this song. Just the music, not the dialogue. Very beautiful and a powerful speech. https://soundcloud.com/kloerwald/death-and-the-celebration-of
    December 11 12:29 AM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Nice, I'm getting it now.
    December 10 03:22 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars I thought you might like this. I'm not usually a fan of the poppy side of emo but I think this song is really good and catchy. Great performance as well. http://youtu.be/IXjttlh5zJY
    December 8 12:21 AM
  • Iamthe Nightstars I dig it. I might have to check out that album.
    December 7 03:09 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Thanks I'll fix that. Have you heard of the file downloading program soulseek? I just got it and it's pretty nifty. I was able to find some albums that I couldn't find anywhere online to purchase or to download for free.
    December 7 03:01 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Lol. I clicked the link on the page and saw it's an electronica pop band. There should be rules about band names.
    December 5 10:39 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Pretty good. The vocals remind me of Yuriko. This is hypnotizing. http://youtu.be/vFg_223ylU4
    December 2 01:27 AM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Also, I love the chorus of this song with the female vocals. I've known about them for a while now but never bothered to check them out. Guess I should do that. http://youtu.be/I2rZqVfHNNE
    November 26 09:47 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars I just came across Jim Yoshii Pile-Up the other day. They sounded pretty good.
    November 26 03:32 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Just found this. These guys are from Spain. Their album was mastered by someone in The Appleseed Cast. http://youtu.be/mit-VlVj18I
    November 26 02:03 AM
  • Iamthe Nightstars It's all good. I'm not exactly crazy about it either. It feels like there's nothing else to really discover in emo. Haha.
    November 26 12:18 AM
  • Iamthe Nightstars This is fun. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VLawTnzaUqk
    November 24 02:46 AM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Sounds beautiful.
    November 20 12:45 AM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Nothing to do with music, but I found these super cool. Lol http://indulgd.com/realistically-colorized-historical-photos/
    November 19 12:29 AM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Can't believe I just now came across these guys. Nice blend of old and new emo. http://youtu.be/jwtG4NvRS6E
    November 17 03:14 AM
  • Iamthe Nightstars I don't get why people think Owen is emo. A lot of those "sounds like" descriptions aren't very accurate.
    November 16 12:26 AM
  • Iamthe Nightstars That Twenty Six song is interesting for sure. Not exactly my cup of tea though. Denison Witmer sounds good. Sounds like a warmer Red House Painters.
    November 12 09:38 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars This is cool too. http://youtu.be/R0Y_pkh61kk
    November 9 04:56 AM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Thought you might like this. https://summerhillmelb.bandcamp.com/
    November 7 07:37 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Well, I didn't care for their first album that much really but I had a connection with their new one. I like it because it has catchy and upbeat songs as well as more slower post rockish ones and just think it's all around well written. Impasses is probably my favorite song.
    November 4 04:55 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Have you listened much to the new Crash of Rhinos album? I think they might be my favorite new emo band.
    November 4 01:24 AM
  • Iamthe Nightstars That's pretty cool. Kind of has the same mood as Moonlight Sonata.
    November 2 09:59 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars I downloaded their album yesterday. It's accessible and nice, but I'm not sure if it will leave a lasting impression.
    October 29 07:04 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Ever heard this? http://youtu.be/B_WWQxNV8Dc
    October 28 07:17 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Not bad. I'll listen to some more songs from that album later.
    October 28 07:10 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars New song from Chris Simpson. http://youtu.be/80vVTu2rCoA
    October 22 12:35 AM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Got a bit of a slowcore vibe from it, nice. The other song is okay but doesn't do much for me, sorry.
    October 16 06:45 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars This song came up on random on my zune while I was driving earlier. So pretty. http://youtu.be/GWTYb4JWo_U
    October 15 06:00 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars That is a great album. Not quite as good as Penfold but at least it exists. Lol. I think "A Terrible Secret" or "Empathy.." is my favorite.
    October 14 11:17 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars I like the song but not a big fan of the guy's vocals. That is an interesting article even though I already knew everything it talked about. Haha.
