  • SpaceHustler you munched?
    August 22 12:30 PM
  • esther Hey man I noticed you like some of the same bands I do. I wrote and recorded an EP and I was wondering if you could review, rate, or even just listen to it. Here's a link:
    June 24 04:50 PM
  • TRMshadow I need to thank you again for introducing me to o'brother. F**king Amazing band.
    October 22 02:06 AM
  • InFiction Dude, are you still around? I miss your face.
    August 22 01:37 PM
  • Deviant. Thanks man, sent you an email
    February 20 04:32 AM
  • Deviant. Hey man, I have a favour to ask. Could I possibly grab your email off you?
    February 19 10:53 PM
  • Knott- nigga this is my lawn! well said.
    January 15 06:02 AM
  • Douglas Haha, yeah it was an amazing couple of days, yeah hears hoping that the new Middle East album is a bit more tighter then the set ey?
    January 11 06:10 AM
  • Douglas Haha yes, I learnt that lesson hard a couple of falls ago, spewed missed like some of the best acts and hated myself the next day for it! Yeah Falls is so much better organized than Pyramid. Highlight? The National for me were in****ingcredible, as well as the quirky ass set from the Middle East.
    January 10 11:34 AM
  • Douglas howd you enjoy falls? I enjoyed muchly!
    January 10 09:03 AM
  • EVedder27 haha, I was just messing around with the chords, but it seemed pretty accurate
    January 7 05:12 AM
  • EVedder27 stumbled across this today, assuming it's you:

    December 24 07:46 AM
  • Xenophanes Your La Dispute soundoff is easily one of the best ever.
    December 11 06:50 PM
  • Vooligan Yeah i loved that solo. Can see myself listening to Innerspeaker heaps over summer.
    November 15 01:06 PM
  • Vooligan I was a huge fan of Solitude is Bliss and Bold Arrow of Time. The latter, was awesome in particular.
    November 14 10:55 AM
  • Vooligan listened. Awesome album. Probably a 4 for me. Tis a great album to chill to.
    November 14 03:55 AM
  • chambered89 i cant wait to listen man
    November 4 04:53 PM
  • alachlahol and since you tend to enjoy similar folk to me here's some really good s***. Mountain Man - Made The Harbor just came out this year. three-girl folk group awesome harmonies. Simon and Garfunkel - Bridge Over Troubled Water total ****ing classic, heavily influenced Good Old War
    November 4 01:24 PM
  • alachlahol it's also going to really depend on what you were raised on. my parents were playing The Beatles, Simon and Garfunkel, Beach Boys all the time when i was growing up so i love almost everything they do. getting into old-school bands when you've never listened to stuff by them before can be daunting unfortunately
    November 4 01:20 PM
  • alachlahol well for one thing the Beatles are the second coming of Jesus. listen to Abbey Road in full if you enjoy that let me know. for Hendrix you should get a compilation album like Experience Hendrix: The Best Of Jimi Hendrix since it lays out all his highlights. i'll leave you with those two for now. if you're a real music whore and eat up albums like cheerios i can rec you a bunch at once but two for now should suffice
    November 4 01:14 PM
  • alachlahol out of the stuff you've checked out what have you really enjoyed
    November 4 12:53 PM
  • alachlahol Warpaint and Tame Impala will most likely be in my top 10 for the year. have you ever listened to any albums by Hendrix or Cream? not sure how into psychedelia you are
    November 4 12:43 PM
  • alachlahol **** forgot to respond to your shout. i have heard Pond but only one song from their myspace a long time ago. haven't found any other bands at all similar to TI unfortunately, everything psychedelic-based is pretty lax lately with the exception of Warpaint. Black Mountain is ok, Wolf And Cub, Dead Meadow, Comets On Fire. none of them really sound like the other and i wouldn't call any of them excellent
    November 4 12:31 PM
  • alachlahol looks like you've been enjoying the new Tame Impala. if you haven't already, you should listen to their EP. and here's a link to quite a few demos that are good quality and all great:
    October 19 08:29 PM
  • Bitchfork indie fgt listen to more noiz metul
    September 2 03:24 AM
  • Bitchfork ... same here
    September 2 02:53 AM
  • Bitchfork I tried to find a post I sent you via shoutbox but couldn't, so mind explaining what the **** was the reason behind just posting "tame impala?"
    September 2 02:36 AM
    September 1 08:53 AM
  • dcha Here is Patagonian Rats. Enjoy
    August 24 03:16 AM
  • DeafMetal Wow, I'm really enjoying Thistled Spring. Awesome stuff man.
    July 28 06:03 PM
  • StreetlightRock Yep, pretty much, her and a guitar. She likes a bit of reverb though, so it's not so quiet.
    July 21 04:37 PM
  • StreetlightRock Have you heard anything outside of Hadestown? I've got Hymns For The Exiled which is tre fab (and an absolute bitch to find), but not her other stuff.
    July 21 01:24 PM
  • Lambda I might do one as a joke bonus round or something
    July 19 08:28 PM
  • StreetlightRock Ah, okayokay, I'll try. I've just had a bit of trouble getting an intro down (once I get an intro down, EVERYTHING else falls into place), and I have a habit of giving up if I can't, but I'll crank some brain juice just for you =)
    July 19 05:05 PM
  • DaveyBoy Well that was interesting. Folky cabaret is not quite my thing though Tom.
    July 18 12:21 PM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Oh, I should have noticed that. I like your voice. The Flume cover is pretty sweet. Keep going man it sounds great.
    July 5 07:00 AM
  • Iamthe Nightstars Hey man, the link didn't work.
    July 5 06:40 AM
  • DiceMan Not much just laughing at how much I like most of your top 10 from lastfm. Hbu?
    July 2 06:59 AM
  • Douglas looksi at my list, i posted for you :(
    July 1 07:59 AM
  • Powerban I think I know of a singer songwriter you would like quite well, sir. He is compared to Bon Iver, but adds in a post-rock feel. He goes under the moniker 'Rivulets'. Check out a song here:
    June 27 06:18 AM
  • StreetlightRock Glad you like Hadestown. I'll review it eventually.
    June 24 02:27 PM
  • Ire sexy
    June 22 08:21 AM
  • Ire id hit it
    June 22 07:39 AM
  • Douglas you're a champion!
    June 12 08:13 AM
  • Douglas hey man any chance you could send me a link for vultures?
    June 11 09:37 AM
  • Blindsided First comment cut off and for the second comment I just ordered Cotton Teeth a couple days ago so thats on its way.
    June 3 01:58 PM
  • Blindsided Hey could I bother you for some folk recs? Both male and female would be appreciated.
    June 2 01:14 PM
  • AnotherBrick awesome dude, thanks
    June 1 05:37 PM
  • AnotherBrick k i'm trying to put this list together that is basically an essential list for various genres, so i'm asking a lot of users who i feel really know the genre. Think you can come up with 10 essential post-hardcore albums?
    May 31 08:14 PM
  • Ire hey bro
    May 28 08:09 AM
  • YouAreMySilence thanks so much man.
    May 25 12:28 PM
  • YouAreMySilence Hey brah, Ive really intrigued by those Sheperd's Dog acoustic demos. Do you happen to have it for .zip file?
    May 24 02:24 PM
  • Blindsided Oh man it was insane. He was great, had some trouble with his guitar cutting out a couple times but played it off perfectly. He played a good mix of both albums, merch was sparse, I got The Wild Hunt vinyl. When I get that review up I'll let you know.
    May 24 01:12 PM
  • Blindsided Just thought I'd let you know I'll be seeing The Tallest Man coming on stage in about 20 minutes, I'm going to write up a live review for my own site similar to the staffs version on the blog so when that is up I'll notify you.

  • SigurFloyd stop raping little girls
    May 9 04:13 PM
  • SigurFloyd stop raping little boys
    May 9 06:26 AM
  • SigurFloyd I was going to call you a bitch, but the fact that you gave fall of troy a 4 already did.
    May 8 10:50 PM
  • NeutralThunder12 haha bro dont be raggin on the Theater.
    May 5 11:49 AM
  • Yotimi Dude, your myspace stuff is really good. You should finish that Flume cover.
    April 20 01:29 AM
  • NeutralThunder12 oh haha good.
    April 17 02:31 AM
  • NeutralThunder12 hey buddy, I see your a folk guy. Have you ever heard of Nick Drake?
    April 16 02:52 PM
  • Blindsided I bought my ticket about a month ago.
    April 15 09:42 PM
  • Blindsided I hope you are going to see TTMOE for his new tour. Also can you direct me in the direction for Darwin Deez?
    April 13 11:56 PM
  • Edwin I just wrote in my own shoutbox lol, ****ing fail.
    April 6 05:34 AM
  • Edwin Ah okay, Australia ftw. I'm at Newcastle. This semester I have 2 core classes (Intro to Communications, and Foundation of Media Production, which is just making audio and video things on pro tools basically), 1 major class for Journalism ('Intro to Professional Writing) and 1 elective. So yeah, it's a bit boring to start with, doing all the 'intro' kind of classes. But it's starting to get more interesting already. Not sure how easy it will be getting a job though, tonnes of people study it.
    April 6 05:33 AM
  • Edwin re. the question you asked in that University list: I study Communication with a major in Journalism (in Australia) and it's the bees knees so far. I'm in my first year. There's such an interesting range of things to learn, so I can only recommend it.
    April 6 05:14 AM
  • iPim Thanks for the heads-up. I know I am a terrible writer :p
    April 5 08:20 PM
  • Jim thanks man listening now. this is very tasty!
    April 5 05:57 AM
  • Motiv3 dude where did u get the tallest man album from?
    March 25 04:39 PM
  • FreePizzaDay Best soundoff ever on that Tallest Man album. I lol'd for a full minute.
    March 25 06:04 AM
  • Blindsided I just got Tallest Man tickets for his tour. Jealous?
    March 22 09:32 PM
  • Blindsided First off I have one question: how can you like Justin Vernon but not DeYarmond Edison? Secondly I would like some folk recs please.
    March 16 12:03 AM
  • Blindsided Physical no idea. Digitally I found it pretty quick like on mediafire. It's not as good as The Wild Hunt but ha then again not much is.
    March 9 03:47 AM
  • Blindsided Haha I'm pretty partial to You're Going Back and Kids on the Run. I can't believe it leaked this early. You should check out the review I put up last night for his s/t EP.
    March 8 02:16 PM
  • Blindsided I changed my opinion on The Wild Hunt. It's fantastic.
    March 8 04:18 AM
  • scotish yay for free indie! :// got o'brother downloaded, can't get to my own pc atm still haven't listened (somehow :
    February 28 09:37 AM
  • Tom, my name is Tanner and I was wandering if you could e-mail me at so i could talk to you about a review.
    February 15 08:39 PM
  • YouAreMySilence Yeah Electronic Dream Plant is amazing as well.
    January 22 02:51 AM
  • YouAreMySilence Then post one up! Maps and Floating In And Out are my favorite tracks!
    January 22 02:08 AM
  • YouAreMySilence Yeah I should probably look that up. And I hope they come up with something new, wasnt Cotton Teeth released in like 06?
    January 22 01:39 AM
  • YouAreMySilence I cant say I've listened to it. Do you have any idea when they're coming out with a new record?
    January 22 01:13 AM
  • YouAreMySilence Brah, post a ****ing review for Cotton Teeth dammit! Amazing, amazing record.
    January 21 05:07 AM
  • DiceMan What does tl;dr mean? I've seen it used before I just never understand it... :(
    January 21 04:20 AM
  • Douglas Alright deal will do! And get on it the album is fantastical
    January 13 05:53 AM
  • Electric City check out Born Into Trouble... and This is Our Punk Rock. Those albums are definitely their best
    January 13 05:51 AM
  • Douglas hey man you should upload Paul Dempsey's album on AWG
    January 13 05:33 AM
  • Electric City its pretty much exactly like 13 blues for thirteen moons tbh. Maybe a little less obnoxious but same basic sonic palette and i have the same opinion; a good change up for post rock but nothing to listen to all the time
    January 13 05:29 AM
  • Electric City It's pretty good. I'm gonna review it
    January 13 02:38 AM
  • Douglas Yeah man it was insane fan, considering 90% of the girls at the event were pretty much the hottest things ever it was great fun haha. Yeah Architecture were amazing so were bluejuice, yeah singers were drunk as.
    January 8 12:40 AM
  • Skimaskcheck Aw sweet! Thanks man, i definitely need to go get them asap!
    January 8 12:05 AM
  • Skimaskcheck thanks alot for posting Here, Hear III on AWG, i'm REALLY enjoying it, are the other Here, Hear's similar at all?
    January 7 06:56 PM
  • Douglas Fav act at pyramid? Also did you partake in the naked slip and slide? Me and my gf were amoung the 100's doing it SOO much fun.
    January 7 10:32 AM
  • Douglas Dead Letter Circus just ****ing dominated for me, that pit was intense as hell and so much fun! Also, Calling all cars were great. Bluejuice were fun due to my drunkness and the random sex doll floating around the crowd. nah man, after 1am each night i had no idea who i was watching!
    January 1 09:53 AM
  • Douglas Yeah I know, was awesome fun. though looking after a drunken girlfriend spewing uot of the tent at 6am wasnt fun! hahahaha
    January 1 09:00 AM
  • Douglas Sucked we got no count down though : (
    January 1 06:27 AM
  • sXeMOSHCOREhXc lets make a band
    December 28 02:14 PM
  • Athom the only thing I troll is No Heroes discussions. if you are referring to TwasGenocide I know said person, but I am in no way him.
    December 27 10:10 AM
  • nutsack "I will leave you whimpering on the floor and bleeding from the pulpy red gash that was your anus"i'm glad you enjoyed that line, or were frightened of it. one of my finest moments
    December 23 04:46 AM
  • SlightlyEpic I noticed you just made your first post, nice job man. I've added you to the staff panel too, let me know your top 5 bands and also if you have a account so I can put it there :)
    December 14 12:29 PM
  • SlightlyEpic And you're invited! This is going to be ridiculous now haha,, good to have you man
    December 14 10:50 AM
  • MarcTruant I was tempted. Ribbons and Sugar was great. Too bad I lost my copy.
    December 13 01:32 AM
  • Lions That is true. I should probably go about that soon (as if I don't have enough music!). Nonetheless, I always need more. You're doing a fine job whoring this album, my friend. : )
    December 8 05:53 AM
  • FattyKnee cool beans
    November 10 02:38 AM
  • xNintendoCorex i just added you on as well.
    October 18 03:20 AM
  • xNintendoCorex woah thanks man, this is great stuff. the songs ive heard have a great vibe around them. kinda remind me of bowerbirds, if youve ever listened to them.
    October 18 03:19 AM
  • xNintendoCorex yep, its mike kinsella, great stuff.ummm, my favourite is probably 'at home with owen' but i think most people prefer 'i do percieve' though they are vastly different albums. the latter is a bit more natural and transparent while the former is quite ambient/ethereal in comparison....thats my thoughts anyways. all his works are killer though.heres a good 'un:://
    October 10 05:28 AM
  • xNintendoCorex hey man, do you like 'owen'?
