  • BigHans Based on your ratings bro I think you might dig the new Gang of Youths album pretty hard. Could be wrong, but its a hunch.
    August 23 02:22 PM
  • tom79 Nice to see someone else really diggin' the new Sidekicks album
    February 17 08:50 AM
  • Hep Kat you heard the new black wine song? it's pretty cool. sounds like they went in a completely different direction than their last album
    July 12 09:04 AM
  • Hep Kat yeah, no release date yet, but new black wine is definitely on the way. i hope it's as good as hollow earth. I still jam that all the time
    June 17 06:45 PM
  • Hep Kat also, old man markley is playing philly in mid-July, we're either gonna go see them then, or a few days before in asbury park. if we do wind up going to the Philly show, you tryna come too? I would suggest bringing a gal if ya do, s*** makes wondrous dancing music
    June 14 11:43 AM
  • Hep Kat stoked for the new black wine record?
    June 14 11:41 AM
  • Hep Kat ah i figured that was likely. we shall raincheck then
    November 26 09:56 PM
  • Hep Kat yo dawg you gonna be around this weekend? i'm gonna be in pa, and me and the mrs. were thinking about headin into the city for somethin
    November 26 09:27 PM
  • owen I like season 2 so far, because it's weirder
    November 15 10:49 AM
  • owen your avatar reminds me to finish the second season of twin peaks
    November 12 10:37 AM
  • Hep Kat yea dude :{
    August 25 10:51 AM
  • Hep Kat far out dude! I'm sure I'll be going to something soon, so I'll let you know. Message me your digits on or somethin
    August 23 10:00 AM
  • Hep Kat it might be too late now unfortunately. I have one more i wanna get. Something from the midnight movies cover
    July 22 02:28 PM
  • Hep Kat got my night birds lp today. it's ****ing really cool, the pictures are great and the doodles on the sleeve are neat as s***. i'm still waiting on the regular one i bought to play, but i might spin this one once or twice because i really want to hear it on vinyl
    July 22 01:18 PM
  • tom79 I will look into it for sure. thanks dude.
    July 22 12:16 PM
  • Hep Kat what do you think of the new warm brew? i think it's really good, but there's a few parts that aren't well-oiled
    July 18 03:48 PM
  • tom79 Yeah after Laura's killer was revealed the show went downhill, but I think the Lynch-directed finale kind of made up for it. I heard that the network pressured the writers to reveal the killer so when they did they probably just scrambled to find plot lines following it, most of which were awful. Did you watch the movie? It does little in the way resolving the series cliffhanger but offers a lot of back story (its a prequal). It's good, though depressing as ****.
    July 18 03:39 PM
  • tom79 Man that last episode of Twin Peaks is a trip. Such a good show.
    July 17 08:31 PM
  • pribosse it's necro dogg!
    July 13 02:01 AM
  • iFghtffyrdmns i stop by once every few months to realize how out of touch I've become :'( how are things?
    July 10 01:03 PM
  • Hep Kat its awesome, even better than i expected. had to 5
    July 9 10:36 AM
  • Hep Kat yeah philly is great. the barbary, especially, hosts a lot of great acts
    June 30 04:21 PM
  • Hep Kat either way, we're only about 3 hours from philly driving conservatively, so it's whatever. we might be moving ourselves though, to washington state. she has some family out there and they i might be able to get a job at a newspaper that her cousin works at, and she might finish school up out there somewhere. in all honesty though, we'd really be going because of legal weed haha. it depends on whether or not she gets pregnant this summer (we're trying to have another kid)
    June 30 03:53 PM
  • Hep Kat we go to philly at least once a month to see something usually. if youre gonna be there before TIH try to scoop up a pass (i think they may be all sold out officially) and we can meet up
    June 30 03:33 PM
  • Hep Kat gonna catch their record release show at asbury lanes with omegas, give, and altered boys. first time seeing give, pretty stoked on that. i wish the night birds/give/tenement tour had some dates on the east coast but it's w/e
    June 30 02:04 PM
  • Hep Kat so im getting a free copy of the limited edition version of born to die in suburbia for having a night birds tattoo. fortunately my wife has a facebook and she was able to tell me to email brian about it. pretty stoked, it should be here sometime next week
    June 30 01:05 AM
  • Maniac! Also, you should sign up for my site!
    May 1 11:14 PM
  • Maniac! I guess I was overestimating her fanbase. I was told I got a pretty good crowd and I was expecting more people.
    May 1 11:13 PM
  • Maniac!
    May 1 08:42 PM
  • Hep Kat yea it's awesome as expected
    May 1 03:32 PM
  • Maniac! Yeah I saw her in Atlanta. I'll let you know when I finish writing up my live show report for my site.
    April 29 08:09 PM
  • Maniac! Wait, what. Did we go to the same show?
    April 29 07:19 PM
  • Maniac! Laura's set list was the best I could have asked for. Her new songs sound amazing live
    April 29 08:45 AM

    January 10 07:56 PM
  • betterdays314 I noticed you checked out our demo "Songs About Drinking" last year, just wanted to let you know we have a new EP out here:
    December 28 02:35 PM
  • skippingboy123 Check out this band. Here's a wonderful song. (quality pop-punk)
    October 12 06:33 PM
  • skippingboy123 You really have the best taste on sputnik dude
    October 12 06:30 PM
  • mryrtmrnfoxxxy yea dude ur my bro anything for u
    October 3 11:41 PM
  • klap League Id: 590968Password: figure8make sure to check the settings first to prevent bitching later. draft time is flexible.
    August 18 05:57 PM
  • Hep Kat Well it wasn't recorded on a 4 track, so that makes a huge difference right away. They also ditched the noisy experimentation and the fast acid rock freakouts for just straight up Americana-tinged alt rock/post-punk. In a lot of ways it's a better album, and I think you would prefer it to the tape, but personally I liked their gritty, lo-fi sound better. "Master of My Craft" has one of the most infectious guitar riffs I've heard in a while though
    August 17 08:39 AM
  • Hep Kat you heard the masked intruder LP? it's pretty bangin, i'm sure you'd dig it
    August 16 10:12 PM
  • Trebor. Dude my list doesn't have the boss cuz that goes under S
    August 11 02:04 AM
  • Athom it's new LA. the voice cracks are because I recorded it when my voice was still blown.
    August 9 10:11 PM
  • Athom and im an idiot and just linked a Silver Snakes video. stupid Chrome here.
    August 9 08:38 PM
  • Athom yo. figured I'd let you in on a new demo. cheers.
    August 9 08:37 PM
  • pmmets07 **** yeah gatherer! that band rules, my friend is good buddies with them i guess. i expect them to do big things
    August 2 05:02 PM
  • bungy Oh right because I'm a fox
    July 20 07:10 PM
  • bungy Um all I know is that it's called Blizzard of 96 or something like that I think and that I'm stoked to hear it.
    June 27 12:39 AM
  • SnazSpaz oh, i dont like using those sites, they make me feel crummy
    June 9 09:36 PM
  • SnazSpaz Yeah, its pretty great. Hey, where can I find a copy of some Wingnut Dishwasher, and Johnny Hobo and the Freight Trains? They are not on iTunes, Spotify, or Amazon?
    June 9 07:27 PM
  • SnazSpaz K, that's weird thanks for all the recs though, already listened to reinventing axl Rose, really great stuff.
    June 9 04:31 PM
  • OnlyAnchors ill probably go see menz then. drunkenly singing my balls off to "good things" is just something i cant miss out on lol
    June 3 12:27 PM
  • OnlyAnchors ah jesus-tap-dancing-christ :\. is anyone hopping on to replace them or no? i was actually considering seeing the spraynard show until now.
    June 3 12:16 AM
  • Maniac! it's all good. just give it a 5 and we're even
    May 30 01:00 PM
  • Kellerdeck Fair enough. Though if you didn't like it, you shouldn't have rated it. You could become biased towards the band. If you're wondering who I am, I'm their past publicist.
    May 22 12:46 PM
  • Kellerdeck Who the hell are you and why don't you like Rest?
    May 22 11:28 AM
  • Activista anti-MTV we have exactly the same number of comments lol
    April 9 01:50 AM
  • Maniac! thanks man. spread the word :)
    April 3 09:33 PM
  • OnlyAnchors So jealous that you saw code orange kids AND full of hell. I was gonna go see code orange kids but i was too much of a puss to skip my night classes :\
    March 19 01:28 PM
  • SowingSeason would you mind writing a very brief (5-10 sentences) summary/soundoff for the song you chose for the sputnik playlist? i think the feature would look a lot better with writing. if so, please let me know and email it to thanks again for being a part of things!
    March 2 08:14 PM
  • CaptainDooRight yeah bro if I was a master bestow'er of black belts, I would make sure all my students are first well versed in the art of kvlt
    February 29 08:02 PM
  • CaptainDooRight there is nothing black belt about that pie chart, get some black metal in there bra
    February 29 07:34 PM
  • Hawks Yep that last hail mary was close. I think this game pretty much cemented both Eli Manning's and Tom Coughlin's legacies. They'll both be in the Hall of Fame eventually.
    February 5 11:22 PM
  • Hawks Haha yeah I was close. I knew the Giants would win when they got the ball back with 4 minutes left. And I also called that Gronkowski would be a non-factor.
    February 5 11:17 PM
  • Maniac! links were taken down for that album :(
    February 5 02:15 PM
  • SnazSpaz sorry accidentally clicked the enter button multiple times
    February 1 08:15 PM
  • SnazSpaz Yeah, especially Down The River Of Golden Dreams. Its so good!
    February 1 08:14 PM
  • SnazSpaz I hear you are Okkervil River fan now, very happy to hear that!
    February 1 07:38 PM
  • Hep Kat liam the younger has 3 albums, i think. but honestly the other two are only on the internet in such poor quality that the only one i've heard all the way through is revel hidden worlds
    January 27 10:24 PM
  • iFghtffyrdmns yeah probably gonna be a 3.5 for me. maybe a 3 depending on how it holds up, i guess we'll see when I review it
    January 22 09:51 PM
  • iFghtffyrdmns tee hee hee i have connections. new anti-flag too, definitely some improvement from their last stinker.
    January 22 09:29 PM
  • Maniac! lol I know. I was just pissed that turntable wasn't working again.
    January 16 03:45 PM
  • Hep Kat i finally got that from traffic street
    December 20 04:16 PM
  • pmmets07 haha whoa that's awesome. i'm not buddies with them, i just put one of their songs in my skate video for a class final. thanks for pointing that out, though
    December 11 11:20 PM
  • wabbit accidentally declined your last fm friend request sorry bro.
    November 13 05:06 PM
  • iFghtffyrdmns thanks a lot bro! appreciate it. -p-
    October 30 05:29 PM
  • bungy It's a sad deal I'll let you know if I find anything else out
    October 26 12:02 AM
  • Hep Kat i know they havent sent me the vinyl i ordered 4 weeks ago
    October 24 01:14 AM
  • bungy Oh s***. Yeah that's what is happening to people, which sucks because I want some House Boat merch
    October 23 08:05 PM
  • bungy No, I just know it's pretty ****ed up over there I wouldn't order anything for a while
    October 23 06:05 PM
  • Maniac! np
    October 22 10:43 PM
  • Maniac!
    October 22 10:38 PM
  • Trebor. I haven't heard a whole Beatles album either. You should get Static Age though, it rules
    October 1 05:16 PM
  • Trebor. Which 4 haven't you heard?
    September 30 04:17 PM
  • Eko no I was thinking we should disagree to agree
    August 21 08:35 PM
  • Eko it deserves all of the praise it has received
    August 21 01:44 PM
  • Trebor. You have the best neighbors
    August 13 02:32 AM
  • omnipanzer Oh, sorry. on there is a blackbeltdude who is a neighbor to me and I was wondering it was you.
    August 10 09:22 PM
  • omnipanzer For some reason it isn't letting me post a URL. I thought I had done it successfully twice now...
    August 10 08:30 PM
  • omnipanzer lol, sorry bro.
    August 10 07:31 PM
  • omnipanzer This you bro?
    August 10 03:40 PM
  • Restrikted Alright thanks man
    August 5 04:24 PM
  • sixthgoldenticket thank you!
    July 28 02:46 AM
  • sixthgoldenticket hey, where did you get those mp3s for vacation?
    July 27 11:13 AM
  • Maniac! I mostly train hard into Judo. I took some traditional Japanese Jujitsu, but quit doing that after earning a couple belts. I get some ground techniques for judo from some people who have done BJJ for a while. So in other words, just Judo. I've just played with other stuff.
    July 19 01:57 PM
  • Maniac! do Judo! ;)
    July 19 08:38 AM
  • Maniac! If you really have a black belt, what art is it in?
    July 18 10:02 PM
  • mallen- Glad you liked Red City Radio. Personally I think this year needs a little more punk to live up to last year.
    July 9 12:51 AM
  • Satellite yeah, on fb. and actually you might just have to be friends with someone on the site in general, not just a given room. not sure tbh.
    June 27 10:34 PM
  • Satellite currently you have to be american and friends with someone in the room to get in. it's pretty cool for the most part. up to 5 people can be in the DJ rotation, with everyone else in the "audience." when a song's played people can either pos or neg it, and if it's negged by enough people it gets skipped.
    June 27 10:30 PM
  • Eko I'm a tad surprised you put mwY and HoH above Cities tho tbh
    June 18 08:41 AM
  • Eko cool so I gave you what 4 or 5 out of your top 20 indie albums?
    June 17 04:46 PM
  • Satellite yeah man, it's really good. hurricane waves and can't complain are still my favorites of the vacation stuff i've heard so far.
    June 4 10:37 PM
  • Satellite yo dude you should changed that headline to "Against Me! Comp Stream" because lots of people are too dumb to read the 2-sentence article and it's causing some confusion.
    May 21 09:29 PM
  • Tyrael How to get Goblin? Mediafire that s***.
    May 8 09:03 AM
  • Eko well I hope you understand it someday. I really don't even think of that as an album, I think of it more like an old friend I've known for years. It's like a pet dog that you never want to lose and you know it will always be there when you need it.
    May 1 05:02 PM
  • Eko no its pretty much one of the more emotional and personal albums ever
    May 1 04:51 PM
  • Eko dude seriously what even is high fructose corn syrup its an ingredient in foods. not surprised you didnt like sufjan but I didnt on first listen either.
    May 1 03:49 PM
  • Eko hey so tell me when you start digging emotional music again
    May 1 02:12 PM
  • Satellite boys and girls in america
    April 24 10:51 PM
  • Eko seinfeld avatar yes
    April 9 11:24 AM
  • Eko what? I didnt think you would.
    March 30 08:44 PM
  • Eko oh you listened to new emery cool
    March 29 07:58 PM
  • Eko cool
    February 21 05:34 PM
  • Eko ok thanks
    February 17 09:46 PM
  • Eko so if im trying to add a band to the database but theres already a different band with the same name in it already how does that work you think?
    February 16 11:04 PM
  • Eko bringin the hammer dow on skinny fists
    February 3 06:41 PM
  • bungy Awesome! Thanks
    January 25 01:29 AM
  • bungy sup man I like your style, I need a new ska album to dig. What's a sweet one?
    January 24 09:27 PM
  • Eko hey youre rating again. state lottery is a 4.5 now?
    January 23 11:48 PM
  • Eko csb.
    January 20 06:55 PM
  • Eko i dont get the justin bieber thing
    January 19 06:57 PM
  • TheBalderdashMan Hey, you only have it at a 4, come on. I really like it, I just think it's a little unmemorable.
    January 5 09:40 PM
  • cvlts sweet music taste btw
    December 29 11:57 PM
  • cvlts kinda sorta on a break from hardcore, but it's definitely on the backburner
    December 29 08:51 PM
  • Eko i suppose. regardless, i do think it gets boring after a while.
    December 18 11:32 AM
  • Eko so since i like it noticeably less than two other albums it deserves the same rating?
    December 17 07:14 PM
  • Eko first listen it was pretty cool. kinda boring after that. first like ten minutes of stella are ace, but it feels like it climaxes around there and then drags out the rest of the song. and to rate it i have to compare it to other post rock (how else?) and i definitely dont like it as much as ( ) or f#a#oo.
    December 17 06:55 PM
  • TheBalderdashMan Thanks. It's probably because we all talked about it and influenced each other's opinions.
    December 15 09:03 PM
  • MrShankly Of course. I didn't know you listened to Kanye tho...
    December 12 08:48 PM
  • MrShankly ...also, how do I write a review/soundoff/whatever?
    December 12 08:47 PM
  • MrShankly I still need to work on my ratings. Also, I need to listen to things I might not like. Or find something that I own that I don't like... see Led Zeppelin for reference.
    December 12 08:47 PM
  • Eko you too. they are strangely similar.
    December 10 07:03 PM
  • Eko i was thinking of expanding my favorite bands list but i just saw you did so i guess i'll go ahead now.
    December 4 11:12 PM
  • TheBalderdashMan Your () soundoff is great. Something about that album seems to bring out the best in soundoffers.
    November 28 07:50 PM
  • TheRamblingElf Thanks for telling me on my list about those American punk bands! It's a scene I don't know much about. Sometime I'll invest some energy in that! Replied to the rest on my list itself (
    November 20 03:36 PM
  • TheBalderdashMan 100th rating!
    November 5 08:36 PM
  • TheBalderdashMan And in the backseat we just tried to find some room for our knees And in the backseat we just tried to find some room to breathe... Yeah.
    October 31 01:22 PM

    September 12 07:45 PM
  • Eko f#a#inf R E D C I R C L E
    September 6 01:01 AM
  • TheBalderdashMan I just ordered Mingus Ah Um.
    September 5 11:49 PM
  • Eko o my gosh i just enabled scrobbling on last fm i have listened to so much music i am freaked out
    August 16 11:46 AM
  • Eko Yeah I listened to it again the other day and I felt like I was starting to "get it" so I bumped it up to a 4. Might drop it again tho. I find myself thinking of random analogies/quotes on it in different situations quite often.
    August 5 11:39 PM
  • Eko are you familiar with as cities burn? i listened to one of their album come now sleep for the first time this week and its totally blowing me away. its a tad like brother sister, but waaay better. its perhaps the most moving, challenging, and incredible album ive ever heard. ive read its comparable to brother sister mixed with the devil and... you might just check out "contact" on lastfm or something to give it a try, i think youd like it.
    August 5 12:34 AM
  • Eko House of heroes new album is streaming at absolutepunk on their profile. I'm jealous that you will get to hear it before me.
    July 29 01:04 PM
  • Eko I just rated an album a 3 and my objectivity dropped. Is that mathmatically possible?
    July 25 08:15 PM
  • Eko yeah. i kind of expected tracks like adelaid and inevitable to turn you off, but i figure you'll like dismantle repair, fin, reclusion, etc. btw you say i like ballads too much- the unwinding cable car is one of the main reasons why
    July 24 12:48 AM
  • Eko wrote a review for one of emery's old albums if youre interested. saw u rated cities 3.5, bout what i expected.
    July 23 02:00 PM
  • Eko vheissu is better than artist in the ambulance. like significantly.
    July 23 12:20 AM
  • Eko thought so. they were a ska band before they became a punk-with-a-dash-of-pop band.
    July 14 09:16 PM
  • Eko Listen to the city (track on their debut) and then say there's no ska influence
    July 14 03:34 PM
  • Eko youd like children 18:3's debut much more. much more punk and ska influenced than rains a comin.
    July 12 02:10 PM
  • Eko bumped the end is not the end to a 4.5. but its my lowest 4.5.
    July 10 10:55 AM
  • Eko ok so i was in the shower last night and i developed a guide to my ratings for you since they seem to confuse you so much. this might explain why i say i like my 3's.1: I hate it with a burning passion. 1.5: I really do not like this at all. 2: I don't like it. 2.5: It's ok. 3: I like it. 3.5: I REALLY like it. 4: I love it. 4.5: An all-time favorite. If you are somewhat interested in this genre I highly recommend it. 5: Words cannot describe how amazing I think this is.
    July 6 11:36 AM
  • Eko oh my gosh i just realized how many albums are on myspace. expect my ratings to skyrocket.
    July 5 06:36 PM
  • Eko album is on myspace. rains a comin is a high 3.5 for me, might bump it to 4 later.
    July 5 05:31 PM
  • Eko so im listening to children 18:3, and im totally surprised by how much im enjoying it. theyre actually pretty good.
    July 5 01:10 PM
  • Eko pretty awesome man. seriously, really awesome.
    July 3 01:48 AM
  • TheBalderdashMan I've finally achieved my goal of having less 5's than any other rating above 2.5. And I have only one less 2.5 than 5's. I still have almost nothing 2 or below-I'm just not so likely to listen to that stuff. Oh, and check out my new ratings-there are a couple that might interest you...
    June 28 02:53 PM
  • Eko i was at camp this week and i asked this girl in my group what music she liked. she said ska and her favorite band was streetlight manifesto. thought you might appreciate that.
    June 26 11:32 PM
  • Eko guess what! pop punk is now less than 50% of my pie chart!
    June 20 12:02 PM
  • Eko its taken an absurdly long time, but artist in the ambulance is finally starting to grow on me. and mewithoutYou is really good, one of the most original artists ive ever heard.
    June 9 08:50 PM
  • TheBalderdashMan Did you buy White Crosses, or what? Seriously, how do you listen to all of this music? I can't imagine having 238 ratings a year from now.
    June 7 11:02 PM
  • Eko dude i had that exact idea like 2 weeks ago, no joke! and then have the album title be the sentence! every track would be a title track
    June 6 05:36 PM
