  • Iamthe Nightstars On first listen it sounds to me like just another Owen song. More of the same. But for some reason that's an exception for Owen. I guess maybe it's because he does what he does so well. It's beautiful.
    May 25 05:36 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Finally some new Owen.
    May 25 05:09 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars This album is really good. Heroine is probably my favorite track. The first song is probably the weakest but even that song is pretty good. The vocals are somewhat unique for the genre. The album doesn't seem to have much attention online though I was surprised to see.
    May 18 04:25 AM
  • Iamthe Nightstars I'm excited to put it out but I'm actually not in too much of a hurry at the moment. Maybe it's because I just finished another project that I'm waiting to be mixed and that metal one is also close to being done with my friend only having one more song to record vocals for. Everything OK with you?
    May 1 10:51 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars I've got one more song left for tracking guitars. I have some ideas for the vocals but haven't recorded any yet. Not sure how long that's going to take, but I don't want to rush it and not be happy with it so if it takes all summer then oh well.
    April 28 01:58 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars I listened to it. Not sure how much I like it, but it's definitely very innovative. A lot of the lyrics are hard to understand though.
    April 27 09:18 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars This is a project from the bass player of Gleemer. Solid stuff.
    April 12 12:40 AM
  • Iamthe Nightstars That sucks, If you still can't find a job maybe you should consider moving elsewhere? Yeah I've got two more songs to record and then do vocals for it.
    April 10 05:44 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars It's pretty cool. I'm not having much luck finding new music lately. A little frustrating. Have you been?
    April 5 12:45 AM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Happy birthday!
    March 24 12:10 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Too bad. He must have some other similar songs.
    March 7 04:00 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars No, I just came across that on youtube. I'm not sure that song is from an album. I did a search and couldn't find one.
    March 6 03:31 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars This is moving.
    March 5 12:06 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars It's crazy how much this sounds like Owen. His voice needs a little work but I'd say everything else is up to par with most Owen material.
    March 3 09:59 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars I came across that album on bandcamp before but wasn't too keen on it.
    February 29 11:33 AM
  • Iamthe Nightstars The only similar enough album I can think of right now is Owen?s self titled. You can never go wrong with Hammock. I?ve fallen asleep to their albums more times than I can count.
    February 28 12:27 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars That does sound like a good title. Maybe I?ll use it. Haha. Sorry to hear you?re still looking for a job. That must be really tough. I don?t know if I would say being sober has influenced my writing but it has given me more motivation and drive to write and record. I think it?s basically because I?m not too tired or hungover to care and I have more time since I?m not busy getting drunk.
    February 28 12:26 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars music much lately except for some bands I already know that had new releases. How are you doing?
    February 25 12:48 AM
  • Iamthe Nightstars I?ve been fine. Studying a lot for my human diseases class. There?s a lot to remember. I?m finishing up recording this instrumental song that I should have done by tomorrow. I think I?m going to have four instrumental songs I?ve recorded over the past year released as an ep before I finish this emo ep. Other than that I?m a little over a month away from being a year sober. I can?t believe it?s been a year already. Time really seems to fly by with work and school. I haven?t been looking for new

  • Futures that's true man it's all going well! btw any 90s emo recs for me? just looking for some stuff i might have missed
    February 10 05:27 PM
  • Futures not sure yet unfortunately.
    February 9 06:24 PM
  • Futures ah man flicker is absolutely incredible. i'm doing well man! reacted a lot better to chemo this time and radiation is going well.
    February 9 11:43 AM
  • Futures hey man been getting back into emo again lately. have you ever heard time spent driving- just enough bright? incredible album.
    February 7 11:53 AM
  • Iamthe Nightstars I never got into the genre mainly because I find the instrumentals kind of boring. This song isn't bad though.
    February 5 02:39 PM
  • Futures hey man i'm doing alright! starting up the next part of treatment radiation and more chemo.
    February 1 10:52 AM
  • Iamthe Nightstars t can really be done to prevent violence. It?s just human nature. I?m not really familiar with Bloomberg but I think it?s too late at this point for anyone to enter the race. I think most people have already made up their minds.
    January 31 11:40 AM
  • Iamthe Nightstars I think as far as preventing gun deaths and crime gun control and gun free zones are useless. And there is a lot to back that up. Criminals don't buy their guns at stores and get background checks they get them from other criminals. Given America's obsession with guns and that there's more guns than people in the U.S. a prohibition seems nearly impossible and yes, I think would do even more damage if it somehow happened. I'm not sure what the solution is but I don't really think there's much tha
    January 31 11:39 AM
  • Iamthe Nightstars , or Sanders. I've heard a few songs from that New End Original album before. It's not bad but doesn't do much for me.
    January 29 02:23 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Yes, this is not a very good election this time. Fiorina had one strong debate performance, but otherwise is pretty forgettable and kind of blends in with the rest of the crowd. Rubio comes off as sincere and trustworthy and has been very good in earlier debates. He has a decent shot at winning being 3rd in the polls right now. The problem with him though is that he's very comparable to Obama. People are calling him the gop Obama. But I think I would rather have another Obama than Trump, Clinton
    January 29 02:21 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Sorry for the spam, I'm not sure why it didn't go through the first time.
    January 27 03:56 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars movement. Do you pay much attention to what happens in the U.S. or just the more major events?
    January 27 03:55 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars people are supporting him as he?s definitely incompetent with no political experience and has some irrationally stupid ideas. I can?t say I like Sanders much better. I could be wrong about him. He might be able to do some good things but I strongly disagree with his socialist ideas. If it does come down to Trump/Sanders I might end up voting for Gary Johnson of the libertarian party. Even though my vote wouldn?t matter at least I would be voting for someone I like and supporting the libertarian
    January 27 03:55 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Yes, his chances are slim unfortunately, but I think he's the best option as all of the other candidates want big government. I agree with Paul's ideas more than any of the others. I believe this country could really benefit with a more libertarian political style but I think because this type of philosophy is still in its early stages a lot of older people that are making the decisions right now are more stubborn with their views. This whole Trump thing feels like a bad dream. I don't know why

    January 27 02:57 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Yeah, I passed with A's. It just sucks though because of work I can only take about two classes a semester so it's going to take me around six years to finish a two year degree.
    January 23 02:38 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Yeah, it's a great album. He's going to release another one this year too. I just started my new semester this week.
    January 21 05:57 PM
  • Futures good to hear man. spent it with my family had a great time.
    January 5 06:31 PM
  • Futures thank you so much man! how were your holidays man?
    January 5 01:11 AM
  • Iamthe Nightstars I've never heard of them before. This song has a great atmosphere though. I might have to check out more of their stuff. Talons' dedicated a song to Carissa's Wierd on his new album.
    January 4 11:29 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Good to hear. Mine was good as well. I had my older brother and his wife and niece and nephew travel here from Wisconsin so that was cool for a change.
    December 27 05:29 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Thanks, you as well. How was your Christmas?
    December 27 12:00 AM
  • Iamthe Nightstars I've heard good things but I never got around to watching it. I'll have to put it on my list.

  • Iamthe Nightstars It's from the show Louie with Louis c.k. I'll link you the scene when I get home later
    December 18 08:30 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars I don't know why but I always seem to have a soft spot for samples in songs. The content in this sample is really interesting. I never thought of things this way before, but it kind of makes sense.
    December 17 05:26 PM
  • Futures yes it is! feeling a little better already. didn't know this was going to be so hard. hardest thing i've had to do in my life.
    December 12 06:34 PM
  • Futures sorry man i was in so much pain after surgery the next few days i just slept. basically slept for like 5 straight days. 10 hour operation. everything went great according to the doctors!
    December 12 06:19 PM
  • Futures thank you so much man. means so much :]
    December 7 01:16 AM
  • Futures hey sweet! your recs are usually sweet so i will def add that to the list man. actually i don't know if i told you but i have my surgery to remove some of the cancer on monday.
    December 6 02:38 AM
  • Iamthe Nightstars It's nice. Makes me think of Sigur Ros.
    December 1 12:16 AM
  • Iamthe Nightstars A condenser mic is great for picking up a lot of sound. I also use a mic stand and a pop filter (very cheap accessory). Otherwise though I don't really have any other sound equipment. I recommend a big quiet room like a basement. This site has some good tips.
    November 25 07:06 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Wow. That's crazy that they would let in one million refugees in just one year. With all the problems they seem to be causing Germany it's no wonder a lot of countries don't want them. Not to say that they are all bad people but you would think they would show more gratitude for letting so many of them in. That Stratford 4 song is beautiful but the vocals are lacking a bit.
    November 25 07:01 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars were only going to let 10k in. So it?s like playing the lottery for whoever would have been able to get in.
    November 21 12:37 AM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Interesting. I'm just very weary of the middle east. It doesn't seem like there will ever be peace there. You make a good point about the refugees but it looks like the U.S. senate passed a bill yesterday to not let them in. I can't help but think about how other countries must really hate America when we do something like that. A lot of people here are mad that the senate did that but I feel like it doesn't really make a huge difference to the refugees anyway. There's 4.3 million of them and we

    November 18 12:54 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars I can?t say I blame the people for running at the concert from guys with automatic machine guns, but with just being three shooters I think that there definitely could have been fewer deaths. Especially if France didn?t have strict gun control laws. I?m not too educated on the subject but do you feel like Islam is supporting Isis? Or not doing anything to make the situation better? And I feel like I could say the same thing about American politics. I must admit I am a little nervous about Syrian
    November 18 12:44 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars How is everything going where you're at right now? I just heard about a shootout in Paris that happened an hour ago.
    November 18 12:18 AM
  • Futures thank you so much man :]
    November 16 03:51 PM
  • Futures this seems to be normal procedure regarding cases like this. luckily the chemo has worked well enough so far to shrink it so the doctors can try and take out as much as they can
    November 15 11:20 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars I'll be sure to get around to it eventually then.
    November 15 12:16 AM
  • Futures pretty good man! i have some pretty exciting news. i'm having surgery next month to remove a bunch of the cancer.
    November 14 03:56 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars I still have only been listening to the newest album but it's really good. The first and 6th song are my favorites. It's some really heavy stuff. I'm anticipating hearing Outminded. Did you bother to listen to the first one?
    November 11 07:51 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars
    November 9 10:44 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars I can see the TWBF comparison. I thought the new Foxing album sounded a lot more mature and consistent than their first album. I feel like the song "Eiffel" was a better version of what Pianos Become the Teeth did on their newest album. That Apple of Discord song is probably the best song on the album. The rest I feel is kind of average indie, but I haven't made a final decision yet. I uploaded it for you so you don't have to waste your money if you end up not liking it. Lol.
    November 9 10:40 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars You might want to give the new Foxing album a try. I was skeptical because I didn't like their first album that much but decided to give it a listen after seeing all the high ratings for it on here. There's some beautiful songs on it.
    November 4 12:27 AM
  • Iamthe Nightstars I don't think you have sent me that before. It sounds alright but it's too short to judge so I'll have to sample the album.
    November 4 12:14 AM
  • Iamthe Nightstars It's still weird to think that they are working on new material. It's a good thing too because I can't listen to their old songs anymore.
    November 1 02:08 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars This song is cool. The beginning and end is post rock kind of like ABC. It gets more progressive rock toward the middle.
    October 28 12:31 AM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Yeah, my semester is done a few weeks before Christmas. Sorry to hear you're still jobless. Ha, that would be cool if we could play together. I hardly have a chance to play music with anyone anymore. All of my musical friends live pretty far from me.
    October 28 12:30 AM
  • Futures Totally agree with that. Probably my favorite emo song honestly.
    October 27 08:26 PM
  • Futures Did it again haha
    October 27 08:24 PM
  • Futures Damn rest of your post got cut off haha. Stupid ampersand lol
    October 27 05:36 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars I've been recording a little here and there, but it's a lot harder to find time and motivation with school and work going on. I think I'll be able to get a lot more done in between semesters soon at the end of the year. A friend heard my metal ep and wanted to record vocals for it so I have that to look forward to. Anything new with you?
    October 27 01:25 PM
  • Futures Coming along great! Lot's to listen to still! Just listened to Penfold- Our First Taste of Escape and really liked it. I didn't even know it existed somehow haha.
    October 26 06:20 PM
  • Futures Hey I think you might dig the new So Hideous album. Nice cinematic feeling post rock with a little black metal influence.
    October 26 03:38 AM
  • Futures Interesting man. I fully support pretty much all independence movements. Makes no sense keeping people under rule like it's the middle ages.
    October 19 08:22 PM
  • Futures Huh I had no idea about the Flemish independence movement. Explain to me a little more.
    October 19 07:47 PM
  • Futures Hey that's cool man! I love soccer. I am a huge Chelsea and United States national team fan. Must be exciting for you being from Belgium. National team is looking incredible.
    October 19 02:47 AM
  • Futures Huh interesting! Are you a football fan?
    October 16 05:11 PM
  • Futures Oh cool! Is English your second language then?
    October 15 03:20 PM
  • Futures Thanks for the concern though it means so much man. Where are you from by the way?
    October 14 07:18 PM
  • Futures The outlook is looking pretty good man. I had a CT scan a few weeks back and all the cancer cells had shrunk by about half.
    October 14 07:10 PM
  • Futures I don't mind sharing man. I have thymic cancer a rare cancer that has to do with the production of white blood cells. It's usually 2 or 3 days after I feel pretty sick then a few days of being really sore and tired. Other than that it hasn't affected me to much man. I'm very thankful. Just thank god I'm young and in good shape.
    October 14 06:12 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars That Kilowatthours album is solid 90's emo if you want me to upload it for you. I just wish the vocals were higher in the mix.
    October 14 04:51 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars I downloaded their last album on bandcamp because it was free. I?ve only listened to half of it but I was impressed with how heavily emotional it sounded. It kind of reminds me of that In the Wake of Giants album but unfortunately that album didn?t stick with me after many listens. I think this might be better though. I?ll probably get the other one once I?m familiar with this one.
    October 14 04:28 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars It's interesting how emo is still such a misinterpreted genre with how many bands there are. With all the high regarded bands and more obscure bands we keep finding how is it still that 90% of people think Hawthorne heights is emo? Lol
    October 11 08:30 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Oh no, I was replying to your last comment on here. I replied to your youtube comment on youtube. Haha
    October 11 08:26 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars It's hard to come across, but when I do it's usually refreshing
    October 11 05:16 PM
  • Futures Totally. Really loving digging into 90s emo gems. So much stuff goes unnoticed!
    October 10 07:07 PM
  • Futures Haha that's crazy man! It just has everything going on. The classic jimmy melodies, the acoustic overlay, the strings on some songs. It's crazy.
    October 9 08:37 PM
  • Futures As such a huge Clarity fan I think I might be up to the task!
    October 9 01:07 AM
  • Iamthe Nightstars I dig it. The ambiance is a bit overpowering but it works.
    October 8 09:12 PM
  • Futures Wow I'm blown away thanks for reccing me that Last Days of April album! It's so good definitely sounds so much like Clarity. Need to review this as well.
    October 8 03:07 PM
  • Futures I agree man. Going to check the EP tonight I think. How Slowly We Forgot, Paris and The Great Depression are all really really great songs.
    October 7 07:13 PM
  • Futures Yeah I'm really taking my time and enjoying these albums. Like a ton of these don't have reviews or only have less than 10 ratings haha! I just listened to Cross my Heart- Temporary Contemporary and thought that was incredible
    October 7 07:02 PM
  • Futures Haha figured you heard them all man. I'm making the ultimate 90s emo list. It needs your approval haha.
    October 7 03:55 PM
  • Futures Hmmmm I'm sure you've heard all of these but I'm digging deep to find those 90s gems. Mock Orange, Pop Unknown, Edaline, Cross my Heart, And None of Them Knew They Were Robots, Time Spent Driving, Reno Kid, Leiah, Ariel Kill Him, God's Reflex, Bob Tilton, Boilermaker, Bells on Trike, Ethel Meserve, Waxwing and Very Secretary.
    October 7 03:25 PM
  • Futures Dude they're already on my list I sampled a song and they seem really awesome. Can't wait to jam them. What is slowcore anyway though?
    October 6 07:58 PM
  • Futures Huh interesting thought that would be right up your ally. I just jammed The Casket Lottery- Moving Mountains. Incredible album, you dig that?
    October 6 07:48 PM
  • Futures Nobody in emo even comes close really. I'm sure you have but have you ever jammed Edaline?
    October 6 06:52 PM
  • Futures Chris Simpsons lyrics are just incredible. Really loving the Lull in Traffic EP.
    October 1 07:11 PM
  • Futures Hey thanks a ton man! That first rec sound especially sweet. I just listened to The Gloria Record for the first time yesterday. Amazing band can't believe I never did before!
    October 1 03:08 PM
  • Futures Ah sweet thanks dude. I've actually been listening to a ton of 90s emo lately. Probably my favorite genre ever. Got any not obvious recs?
    September 30 08:21 PM
  • Futures Hey man I have heard about half the singles album which i really need to get on hearing the rest. Christmas Card, What Would I Say to You Now and 77 Satellites are all incredible. And I didn't even know these Clarity demos existed! Where can I find them?
    September 30 07:05 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars I thought the same about the vocals. I like a few Elliott songs but I find it hard to sit through a whole album.
    September 25 08:37 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Did you know about this band? It's the same drummer from Elliott.
    September 24 09:38 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars I've been doing the yoga dvd from P90X. I'm pretty sure you can find a torrent of it if you're interested.
    September 23 06:55 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Interesting video. I feel like it's a representation of how society undermines children and doesn't teach them or give them the chance to do the things they can be capable of doing. Kids just aren't taken seriously and that can limit the impact of their future.
    September 23 06:52 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars The Sylvain Chauveau song was very emotional. Thanks for that. The link to the other video didn't work for me.
    September 21 11:41 PM
  • Futures i will keep that in mind man. just thanks so much.
    September 19 03:09 PM
  • Futures dude thank you so much that is truly heartwarming.
    September 18 10:08 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Interesting, I haven't heard that before. I've been on meds on and off since I was eleven. I'm not sure what's changed in that time but maybe I've finally found a way to get over my depression.
    September 15 06:07 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars This is nice on the ears.
    September 15 02:15 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Nice, they came to my state last year but I didn't go. They don't even seem to tour the US that often. I was taking Prozac, nuvigil, and olanzapine. I feel like antidepressants don't really do much for me and I'm not really sure if they ever really helped much at all with how many different ones I've been on.
    September 14 06:13 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Good luck finding a job. The job market in the U.S. is terrible right now even for those with degrees. I hope things get better with your brother and that's great to hear about your mom!
    September 10 05:29 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars to how it will turn out. Other than that I'm back in school and have a few semesters left. I haven't drank any alcohol in over five months and stopped taking the medication I was on. I also started doing yoga recently along with other exercises. It's helped given me a sort of peace of mind which I really needed after these past five years. I feel a lot more stable and like I have it together and I think soley not drinking helped out a lot with that. So yeah, I can't really complain right now.
    September 10 05:27 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars The band I tried to start with my roommate dissolved quickly after one practice. It's really difficult finding like minded musicians to play with. So, as much as I'd like to get a band going and I'm just focusing my attention on what I can do by recording. I started tracking the other week for my emo ep. Hopefully I can have it finished by the end of the year. I think the hardest part will be deciding on the lyrics as that's the part I struggle the most with songwriting. But I'm looking forward
    September 10 05:25 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars How's life treating you?
    September 7 11:42 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars I can't believe I've never heard this band before. I also can't believe they aren't more popular. It's an emo supergroup. It's the singer of Texas is the Reason and the guitarist from Knapsack/Samiam. This song sounds like a more refined TITR.
    August 20 12:59 AM
  • Iamthe Nightstars I've listened to the album Bleed American many times but I didn't know about that song as it was a b side. It's really good. Definitely Mineral inspired for sure.
    August 16 10:44 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars This is a gorgeous acoustic ballad. I teared up when hearing the piano version of it on the tv show 'Rescue Me' the other night.
    August 12 03:12 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars I thought so as well.
    August 10 12:03 AM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Glorious sounding, I like it. And hah, well I'm not the first one to use old footage for songs. I only started doing it because it was more interesting than just a picture or cover art and then it sort of just became a hobby for me.
    August 7 12:45 AM
  • Iamthe Nightstars How have you been? I found this on the front page reviews. Unique sound I thought.

  • Iamthe Nightstars Neat song. It looks like that guy has a massive discography. Have you heard much of it?
    July 26 11:17 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Thanks, I'm not too sure yet how I feel about their music as a whole, but some of it is great.
    July 23 01:44 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Yeah, I only watched two episodes but it kind of dragged. Maybe David lynch is just better at making movies.
    July 11 11:42 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars I was watching the show Twin Peaks the other day and noticed how great of a theme song it had. Ghostly dream pop.

  • Iamthe Nightstars I have some older guitars but those two are typically the only ones I play. I usually only play the other ones if I'm too lazy to change the tuning I want to play in. Lol. Sorry you have to play with gloves, that sucks. I hope it doesn't interfere too much with your playing ability.
    July 11 12:38 AM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Yeah, I do because I have the money and have been playing long enough for it to be a good investment for me. I've had a $900 Taylor acoustic for four years now and love it still. And I bought an $800 Fender jazzmaster last year. Are you having trouble deciding on what to buy?

  • Parallels ok ill try. thank you for taking the time to read that all and for helping give me advice and your opinion on the matter, it does help

  • Relinquished I don't feel any sort of way against/for you, but I feel the same. I reached out to certain users as a shoulder to rest on/ear to listen. if you're going through some s***, I'm here. obviously you're set on your point of view on things and'll resort to retorts when confronted about said views, but remember that experience isn't always a reliable guide to connect entirely different people to those you've encountered.

  • Iamthe Nightstars I don't listen to Arrows as much anymore but they are still near the top of my list. I'll probably revisit them when winter comes around.
    June 28 06:43 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Pretty cool chill indie. Looks like a video I'd upload. Lol
    June 25 09:37 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Lol yeah. It would be so much easier if it wasn't me doing everything all by myself. That's why this metal ep took so long for me to finish. School and work are factors too of course.
    June 25 04:11 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars And don't feel discouraged by my guitar playing. I've been playing for over a decade now and it took a lot of time and effort to be able to do what I can do now.
    June 25 04:09 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Thanks, I'm glad you got something out of it. I don't think I will continue with this project, at least not for now. I have an acoustic ep and an emo ep I've been meaning to get around recording so those come next. Lol
    June 25 01:56 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars This band played with Penfold when they reunited and went to Japan. Enjoyable ep I thought.
    June 22 12:17 AM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Beautiful. I haven't heard a lot of post rock like this is is there a lot of it out there?
    June 21 12:14 AM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Pretty cool. Reminds me of Woodworkings a bit.
    June 11 10:34 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Yeah, I haven't heard much drone emo like that either. I think maybe the most impressive take on shoegaze emo I've heard was the first Sore Eyelids lp, but it didn't age well for me.
    June 9 10:35 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars A member of Barrow is in this band. Not bad, but I've yet to see any band master the shoegaze/emo combination.
    June 7 10:25 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars You might like this. It reminded me of the last TWIAP ep. The songs don't flow that well though.
    May 28 08:43 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars I get along with my parents fine and it's cheaper so that's cool. But yeah, I don't have as much freedom/privacy or the ability to do some of the things I could before. The ep is instrumental melodic metalcore and it's only 15 minutes long. It should be finished with mixing and mastering in a few weeks I'll send you the link then.
    May 28 08:42 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars I've been alright. I just moved back into my parents' house last month after being on my own for three years. Still kind of weird adjusting to things. I recently finally made myself finish that metal ep I've been working on for years now and it's being mixed and mastered right now, so that's kind of exciting. How are things on your end? I remember coming across LOE years ago. I think that guy was in Joan of Arc and is on the same label as the rest of the Kinsellas. They have a pretty cool sound.
    May 26 11:33 PM
  • GmemberKills just noticed you commented in a white seeD thread AGES ago saying you "love this". just wanna say i appreciate you listening.
    May 26 09:57 PM
  • Trebor. I had to after seeing them live
    May 11 06:15 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars I got a big Zookeeper vibe from that Dolorean song. Even the vocals were similar in style to Chris Simpsons'. The DLR song has nice guitars, but I'm not entirely sold on the vocals.
    May 11 03:13 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Just came across this. I love that guitar tone.
    May 6 08:16 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Nice list, thanks.
    May 5 03:39 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Great song. Flowed well for how long it is. This guy might not be the most original acoustic songwriter, but this song is exceptional.
    May 1 09:41 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars I just got back from Owen/Blake Brown. Really great show. I spoke briefly with Blake before I left. He was surprised when i mentioned Harboring Secrets and how I bought it from him through the mail almost ten years ago. He said he never published it. It's like it doesn't even exist! Lol
    April 25 03:18 AM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Yup it's reconvene.
    April 22 09:09 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars lol. Go for it. The album that song is on is really good I think. His first album is pretty good too but doesn't reach the same quality and doesn't have as much variety.
    April 21 06:52 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Yeah, I really like how unique his voice is. It's like a mix of a girl and a guy. It's crazy how that album and his other solo album aren't available anywhere online. They used to be on itunes but not anymore. I'm glad I discovered him a long time ago and got them before it was too late.
    April 21 12:23 AM
  • Iamthe Nightstars That Aereogramme song is really cool. Especially the ending. Have you listened to much of them?
    April 19 10:52 PM
  • Flugmorph Your second post and mine after that got lost, why? :(
    April 19 10:13 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars This guy is opening solo for Owen and with his band the next night for American Football. I've been listening to him since I found his music in high school. Very talented songwriter I'd say. The album this song is on isn't available online anymore so I uploaded it onto soulseek if you think you ever might want it.
    April 16 10:49 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Apparently Daniel Land was listening to this a lot when he wrote the Voss EP.
    April 16 07:47 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Lol, but we already found them all.
    April 11 08:20 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Never heard of them. Music is good but the vocals are pretty bad at parts. The last song was the highlight for sure.
    April 11 01:45 AM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Also, ever listen to Enya?
    April 7 11:59 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars I saw an article for this song saying it was the most relaxing song ever according to some scientists doing a study. I'm not sure how that works, sounds more like an opinion to me. It's good ambient though.
    April 7 11:59 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Did you ever get into Tallest Man on Earth? He's arguably the modern day Bob Dylan. Well, his new album just leaked and it's the first one where he incorporated a full backing band. It's pretty cool.
    April 7 12:36 AM
  • Iamthe Nightstars I've heard a little bit of them. My friend was telling me about them.
    April 5 05:11 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Nice song. Even though it was almost 6 minutes it felt short. The piano was awesome.
    April 3 02:45 AM
  • Iamthe Nightstars No problem!
    March 29 07:41 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Toy Soldier - Concrete
    March 29 01:41 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars I just got this album in the mail a couple of days ago. Definitely 90's emo influenced but they kind of had a more poppy and modern approach. The album is quite solid if you want it. They had a girl on bass that also did backing vocals. So I guess that makes them unique. Lol. The end of this song is cathartic.
    March 29 01:41 AM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Yeah, that album is ok. There's a couple parts where the lyrics and melody are almost verbatim to Mineral which kind of bugs me.
    March 25 07:04 PM
  • smaugman emo fag
    March 25 02:10 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars I'm not sure why that happened. Weird glitch of some sort.
    March 24 07:33 PM
  • Lol, I actually posted one of the songs from that Margot EP a while back. They sound like early Mineral. That other song is cool how quiet the mix is for how many instruments there are. Happy birthday btw.
    March 24 01:25 PM
  • RosaParks ufck you
    March 17 11:22 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars I've also seen quite a few interesting and bizarre foreign Japanese films.
    March 17 05:29 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Japan definitely has a fascinating culture. It kind of seems like they do everything better than other countries with things like video games and game shows. I listened to athletics a long time ago and couldn't get into them. Still can't, but it's pretty decent for the genre.
    March 17 05:25 PM
  • Tunaboy45 I have no idea man : ( disappeared. Maybe I'll make another.
    March 17 11:36 AM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Not too shabby Japanese indie emo band.
    March 13 01:13 AM
  • Iamthe Nightstars This is an odd rec for me because I heard this song on the radio and I hardly ever like anything I hear on the radio. Lol. This song was playing early in the morning on my drive home from a concert a few days ago.
    March 6 03:24 AM
  • Iamthe Nightstars The violin is really great on it.
    February 26 07:40 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Ok, this song is pretty great.
    February 15 07:51 PM
  • Sniff Solved it. Got my NWZ-A17 in the mail a couple of days ago. It's super sweet. Thanks for taking the time and helping me.
    February 15 01:51 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars I heard most of it but found the majority of it to be mediocre. It's been a long time since I've listened though, I don't even remember what it sounds like. The only song by them that stuck with me was "Tiglio". Killer song. I remember sending you it ages ago. Haha. Are you talking about The Tigra Songs? I might give it a spin again if you insist.
    February 14 07:59 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars I see, sorry to hear. Good luck with that and finding a job.
    January 27 10:49 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Oh, what else do you have going on besides school?
    January 27 06:34 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Which Mineral show are you going to?
    January 26 11:10 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Lovely song. I thought the mix was fine.
    January 25 10:46 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars I'm not sure how I never heard this KBC song before but I just love the chorus.
    January 20 10:19 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars time because it's much easier than searching the internet for albums. Plus, a really handy thing about it is how it tells you the bit rate of the songs from whoever uploaded that certain album so you can just scroll down to find the highest quality if you want. Of course though, I can't find everything I'm looking for on it.
    January 18 10:28 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars What worries you about soulseek? Is it the whole illegal downloading thing? Because I looked into it and from what I read you won't get caught for downloading off of there but you can for uploading albums onto it. The things I've uploaded are all from dead bands that hardly anyone cares about or aren't on a label so I think I'm safe. Lol. It took me a while to figure out how to use it but once I got accustomed to it it's pretty simple. If you have any questions just ask. I use it all the
    January 18 10:25 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Most of them are free to use. Some just require you to give credit.
    January 17 10:26 PM
  • Chin lol i saw you on youtube i think
    January 17 05:55 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Thanks. The house from the American Football album cover is for sale. It's cool seeing different pictures of it and the inside. And lucky me, they just announced they're coming to Denver in April.
    January 16 06:48 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars This is a quality song. They're from Mexico but you could hardly tell from listening because the accent is so faint.
    January 16 02:11 AM
  • Iamthe Nightstars That Kilgore Trout song sounded good though I wish the production was better. Those cymbals are overbearing. The Locktender song is pretty. I wish I could write stuff like that. Lol, I don't know how emo became a Japanese thing, but they seem to do it better than most other emo bands.
    January 16 01:54 AM
  • KrazyKris By the way, you might have grown cynical. I can see that and you won't meet too many people that would understand it better. But your lists, your comments, your self-awareness, all that says very much about you and it isn't that you're cynical. And even if so, with the little part of you I've got to know, I'm quite sure it isn't a quality that defines you all that defines you. You still care, at least about your own place and impact on your environment. That's more than most people do.
    January 15 06:42 PM
  • KrazyKris And, well, that discussion actually had the benefit of showing how deep those still are. Somehow I think I'm the only to think that is good though. But I really don't want to bother you with this endlessly. By now I think you might be my favourite user here. You're a really cool guy and yeah, I get that quote. Here one that isn't from some tv show, only from me: "Feeling unbelievably crappy is probably always better than feeling nothing." Kind of keeps suicide and drugs away.
    January 15 06:34 PM
  • KrazyKris They didn't just question but completely negate the fact that I could love someone enough to respect her opinion. And as pathetic as that might be, although I haven't seen her for over 2 years now, that unbelievably deep feeling is pretty much anything that I have left. Retrospectively that situation back then destroyed one person and brought another one to life. One that thinks endlessly, is kind of misanthropic and relies on feelings that won't be reciprocated.
