  • FukkenKrist Hello, how do I make my avatar I picked in the forums appear on the review site
    September 16 10:10 PM
  • Calc k dude, let me know what you think. https://purenoise.bandcamp.com/album/death-is-a-warm-blanket

  • Manormanmark Atari, it's been time man
    September 10 12:40 PM
  • SlothcoreSam Hey late reply on similar Royal Headache recs. Try The Peep Tempel- Tales, both Papa Uni and I have that 5'd. Also check 2018's Idles- Joy as an act of Defiance.One last rec from August this year, another Australian band. The Dead Loves - The Extinction of Unicorns. Kinda grungy power punk. Let me know what you think.

  • DoofDoof I will def give the album another go some time so its definitely not indie folk bulls*** agreed
    August 28 08:13 AM
  • DoofDoof Ha, yeah that is a ginger fringe like no other - she writes a bit like Nick Drake, it was not bad but no song really made me think I was listening to the next great folk songwriter
    August 27 07:23 PM
  • luci i loved it by track 3 as well! the view and the t/t have been stuck in my head all week
    August 21 02:29 PM
  • mynameischan White guilt white heat is SOTY
    August 19 04:28 PM
  • luci obsessed with the new oso oso, think you'd dig it. stay what you are vibes
    August 19 02:12 PM
  • SlothcoreSam Hey man, you checked out the new NoFX song yet, Fish in a gun barrel. It's really good. https://youtu.be/KY0MyjtV8mM
    August 16 09:29 PM
  • SowingSeason yep, as I predicted it's already growing on me fast...'Be Good' has got to be one of the best songs of the year already
    August 16 06:47 PM
  • kris. review the new off with their heads NOW
    August 16 05:29 PM
  • SowingSeason lol I review out of a sense of obligation to a release half the time, so if you ever want something just lay down the law in the dibs thread...everyone including myself would rather read an atari review rather than sowing's 431st
    August 16 04:55 PM
  • SowingSeason no plans to, I think pop-punk is even more your scene that it is mine so if you were thinking about, please have at it...also I'll tell you the same thing I told luci - this is a huge release week, so all these new ratings of mine are 1 listen deep...just trying to narrow down what deserves more attention and Off With Their Heads is definitely one of them. Rating could easily go up from here.
    August 16 04:45 PM
  • SowingSeason that sounds awesome I'll get on it ASAP
    August 13 03:00 PM
  • SowingSeason This is also cool if not unwarranted: https://www.metacritic.com/music/we-are-not-your-kind/slipknot - the album currently has a 100 avg on metacritic based on 6 professional reviews lmao
    August 9 03:40 PM
  • SowingSeason I'm a fringe Slipknot fan. Got into them freshman year of college with All Hope Is Gone (which is apparently their worst album according to everyone else), then got into Vol.3 and Iowa. I haven't heard all of their albums and am not a good authority on the band, but the new one is my favorite out of the ones I've heard. I also rated it above the new Bon Iver that also dropped today, so that's a weird sentence to see myself type.
    August 9 03:28 PM
  • SowingSeason I'm really feeling it (after 1 whole listen, lol). Unsainted is one of my new favorite songs by them as well.
    August 9 03:09 PM
  • SlothcoreSam Glad you digging Propagandhi. They have evolved so much through their discography, but still remained awesome, passionate and relevant. Have you ever checked out Frenzal Rhomb? They are an Australian version of Nofx/Propagandhi. Check out Smoko at the Pet Factory from 2011, and A Man's Not a Camel from 1999.
    August 6 08:19 PM
  • BlushfulHippocrene Likewise! There's something very special about it, I think it definitely has an edge over a lot of things in that style -- very """mature songwriting""", I think, whatever that means. And you too, friend. Thinking of maybe reviewing it? Miss your writing.
    August 3 02:00 PM
  • dmathias52 Not yet, unfortunately! Planning for a move so music has been on the wayside, especially since I want to give the album a listen in full
    July 31 01:54 AM
  • SlothcoreSam Need another 2019 power pop/punk hit. Check the new EP by TV COMA- Body Negativity.
    July 31 12:42 AM
  • luci those florist soundoffs are triggering me... people not knowing how to listen to an album correctly
    July 30 08:48 PM
  • luci lagwagon's may 16 is one of the most nostalgic songs ever to me. tony hawks soundtrack :')
    July 30 08:37 PM
  • SlothcoreSam And check out Lagwagon- Hoss.My fav album of the 90s
    July 30 04:32 AM
  • SlothcoreSam Good Riddance was one of my Fatwreck favs, with Lagwagon, NoFX, No Use For A Name, and Frenzal Rhomb.Check out Ballads from the Revolution or A Comprehensive Guide to Modern Rebellion Both classics from the 90s
    July 30 04:21 AM
  • luci it only makes sense with attentive listening. such a stirring space for contemplation, a peaceful album about not being at peace
    July 28 04:01 PM
  • SowingSeason His review will do it far better justice than anything I might've done, so good. While I'm at it, you might want to consider checking Lisel - Angels on the Slope. I just reviewed it and even though I'm sure the site won't back me up on yet another 5, I do think it's on another level.
    July 27 04:24 PM
  • SowingSeason very beautiful stuff...nothing grabbed me but I also haven't fully digested the lyrics. sittin' pretty at a 3.5 for now.
    July 27 03:58 PM
  • luci "I also have eyes" is the standout for me
    July 27 03:57 PM
  • luci i was def reminded of abysskiss. was thinking to myself "it's like the new big thief but stripped down" and that's basically that album
    July 27 03:51 PM
  • luci if you want to then go for it. if not I'll consider ;)
    July 27 03:31 PM
  • SowingSeason oh god plz no...he just started rolling over and lifting his head, so it's coming soon. time to start proofing the entire house!
    July 27 03:13 PM
  • SowingSeason hahaha, I guess 2 reviews in 2 days isn't productive enough already. you drive a hard bargain. I'll spin it and see, but chances are you'll need to be the one to do it justice!
    July 27 02:41 PM
  • Hawks WHAT!!!! I?m so hype!
    July 27 12:23 AM
  • luci gave it an attentive listen while reading along with the lyrics and this is something special. i retract my initial take
    July 26 07:35 PM
  • luci oh i thought you heard it already, should have waited to share my opinion :p
    July 26 11:53 AM
  • luci the new florist album is p good but I can't help but feel her ambient pair were more evocative. it's clearly meant to be a first-person retelling of how the nature expeditions made her feel, but instead of a lyric like "why do I feel so happy when I stare at the ocean? Then devastatedWhen I stare at the ocean" I prefer the abstract expression of that sentiment on water memory. idk
    July 26 06:16 AM
  • Hawks Question bro...can anything be done about someone literally going through and troll negging all of my reviews. I just checked and they?ve all been negged within the past day or 2 and it?s kidna super annoying. Especially the ones that had all pos? and/or have been featured.
    July 24 07:01 PM
  • Hawks I?m glad too bro! Prob gonna do a discog jam just to see if any of the others can grow on me too even though I?ve been trying forever lol.
    July 22 04:51 PM
  • Hawks YESSSS!!! I?m so happy. It?s soooooooo god damn amazing. m/
    July 22 04:33 PM
  • TheSpirit You should regardless! I was thinking about it but i am still unsure!
    July 19 02:39 PM
  • TheSpirit Are you going to review the new FoR?
    July 18 08:04 PM
  • SlothcoreSam Yeah Ramona is getting better with every listen, reminds me a bit of RVIVR, you need to listen to RVIVR if you haven't already, start with the Bicker and Breathe EP, one of my EPs of the decade. . It's hard to hype new punk music around here. I've got to start writing reviews. Retirement Party were really good, thanks.
    July 12 07:27 PM
  • Hawks Guess I gotta stop telling Alex to shut the **** up too then huh lmao.
    July 12 05:38 PM
  • Hawks Damn I gotta let the men meme go completely??? Well I guess it was nice while it lasted lol. Thanks for your help my man. :]
    July 12 05:18 PM
  • Rowan5215 it's a banger for sure. been loving Happy Days though, so uplifting
    July 8 02:43 AM
  • SlothcoreSam Yo, another great punk album from June this year you will dig. Ramona- Deals, Deals, Deals!
    July 5 12:03 AM
  • Slex Russian Girlfriends is incredible dude
    June 30 11:54 AM
  • Calc Same, I just got back from a 3 week military training so I'm settling back in, I hope your little one is doing well too!
    June 30 03:26 AM
  • SowingSeason Hmm interesting. I'll check it soon as I can!

    June 28 02:53 AM
  • Calc k good I'm not crazy
    June 28 02:01 AM
  • Slex Sooo much good s*** dropping tonight but I?ll fit it into the rotation!
    June 27 11:21 PM
  • Slex Ooo right on will do!
    June 27 10:53 PM
  • Hawks Thanks brother, much appreciated. :]
    June 26 02:28 PM
  • luci cool, i'll try it out when i'm in the mood for that genre
    June 25 02:37 PM
  • Calc hey can you tell me if this is good? because I can't stop listening to ithttps://russiangirlfriends.bandcamp.com/
    June 25 02:17 AM
  • luci chorus is so good even she doesn't wanna end it. I didn't wanna end the dream... :')
    June 25 12:52 AM
  • Slex Hey dude you should check out Telethon-Hard Pop, sounds like a mix of Jeff Rosenstock and Motion City Soundtrack, think you would enjoy
    June 24 08:25 PM
  • Hawks Hey my man, so you?re one of my good friends here and I was wondering if you could put in a good word for possibly promoting me to contrib. I?ve been working really hard and I think I?m more than deserving. I love writing for this site and it would mean so much to me. I?m going to calm down the s*** posts and really focus on my writing so I can help this site in positive ways. I?ve talked to a few other staffers and it would mean so much to me. If you could help I?d appreciate it so much.
    June 24 07:16 PM
  • luci it's 3-3.5, coffeeshop folk. pleasant but nothing memorable
    June 22 06:33 PM
  • neekafat That's partly why, but I also saw your 5.0 and that it only had two songs, so I figured it'd be worth the risk even if it was lame old pop punk (; I might actually!!
    June 12 07:00 PM
  • neekafat Did not expect to actually like the new Spanish Love Songs EP but holy hell
    June 12 06:48 PM
  • Rowan5215 can't wait to see sputnik's reaction to this one haha
    June 12 03:15 AM
  • Rowan5215 I'll have to check em out, dude has a killer voice for sure. on such a TEN kick though it's hard to listen to anything else
    June 5 04:08 PM
  • Rowan5215 isn't that the band with Kenny Vasoli on vox? I honestly only heard one or two of their songs in the day, but always thought he crushed it on his guest features I heard lol. he's on the first Almost and Early November albums, iirc. (speaking of which I am FIENDING for that Early November album Ace has been teasing for months now, the cruel man)
    June 3 03:24 PM
  • Rowan5215 I really hope you like it though! Connected with me like very few albums this year have
    June 3 05:03 AM
  • Dewinged Atari, how u doing brother, we haven't found common ground in a while huh? ;D Check this girl out, ou might like it a bit: Charlie Collins - Snowpine (Interesting blend of dream folk, indie pop and americana).
    June 3 12:50 AM
  • Rowan5215 not a promo per se but have a link ;)
    June 2 02:21 PM
  • mynameischan finally listened to that free throw album, i really like it. thanks for the rec.
    May 29 11:06 PM
  • luci new florist album in july. summer seems lacking in stuff to anticipate tho
    May 28 08:35 PM
  • luci glad to hear that lol. went to check how many bumps it got but kept getting the search wrong :p
    May 28 08:34 PM
  • Conmaniac Hahah I know right?? Fortunately in my school and music scene everyone loves them. When I saw them live there was a crow of like 50 and nearly half were ppl from my school aha
    May 15 07:57 PM
  • luci that's cool, we all have to disengage sometimes! he has such a delicate yet visceral manner of drawing melodies out of his guitar, it's practically a voice on the record. his actual voice is perfectly matched, with a gentle heft that creates an intimacy unlike any I've heard. i guess "fleeting" could be compared to the wrens' downbeat acoustics, otherwise they occupy different places in my mind :p
    May 13 09:41 AM
  • luci review my kappa roots so we can cause a stir over it. forgotten classic
    May 12 09:34 AM
  • luci i'm not obsessed with her, happy with what i've heard atm :p
    May 8 02:10 PM
  • luci wait i'm liking the solo record more with each listen...
    May 5 04:45 PM
  • luci abysskiss is pretty good, pretty much what I expected :p prefer her songwriting with a full band
    May 5 08:36 AM
  • luci haha i will. i'll def return to their previous work due to my love for this
    May 3 12:52 PM
  • luci I can?t do 3.5 reviews, need to feel the passion :p
    May 2 10:56 PM
  • klap Lol alright I did not know that...
    May 1 03:34 PM
  • SowingSeason haha I know. I'm a walking sput-meme and I'm OK with that ;)
    May 1 01:41 PM
  • SowingSeason Also nothing like popping into someone's shoutbox to see that "pulling a sowing" is a thing! lmao
    April 30 06:20 PM
  • SowingSeason I'll have to give it another chance, then :-) not like it was bad, but 3.5-worthy and not up to the standards of Singing Saw, which was my first and best exposure
    April 30 06:19 PM
  • klap actually just spun it on a road trip last weekend, i do like how it seems more like a series of different vignettes, although it does come off as a bit scattered to me. i need to listen to it more, but probs not reviewing it :( my free time isn't what it used to be haha. plus i got VW coming out this friday...
    April 30 03:43 PM
  • SlothcoreSam Here is the B side to "Losers"https://youtu.be/YWF9hs6oJUECalled "(no) reason to believe"
    April 28 03:14 PM
  • luci you're not pulling a sowing, you didn't rate it yet ;) main draw for the album is that it's comfortably elusive... I find the quirks soothing rather than confusing. my brain just drifts with it no matter how eccentric she gets
    April 28 07:20 AM
  • SowingSeason finished it and it really died off in the second half :-( still great, but not as amazing as I'd hoped after the first several songs blew me away
    April 27 02:44 AM
  • SowingSeason god what awful artwork though, literally anything else would have been better
    April 27 02:12 AM
  • SowingSeason yeah pretty impressed so far
    April 27 02:08 AM
  • SowingSeason been hearing great things so I'll bump it up my priority list :-)
    April 26 01:43 PM
  • luci the aldous harding album is quality atari core. haven't heard her older stuff but if you dislike this I'll be confused :p
    April 26 11:05 AM
  • treeman2STIFF Memory never fades... . And the friend ships created here on sputnimusic dot com last a lifetime
    April 25 07:25 PM
  • dmathias52 I have a rec for you! The new album from Kayak Jones. Debut album from an emo/pop punk band, they toured with Free Throw last year. This album is completely blowing me away and I thought you might enjoy it!
    April 23 08:31 PM
  • budgie https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mrNqZjvnII4
    April 22 11:20 PM
  • SowingSeason not sure if you saw in the comments, but "Sparring with you just feels wrong and it kinda hurts to the core" -- I meant every word. Go write that counterpoint, I can't take the tension!
    April 20 01:44 AM
  • SowingSeason lol that's awesome
    April 19 06:27 AM
  • treeman2STIFF hey man just poppin in to say that i remember when you joined the site when I had the user name Sirob and everyone on here was an old crusty metalhead but you were around to talk about pop punk and be nice and i noticed youre staff now, which is pretty cool, even though this is just a music review website good job man it sure is nice to see one of the good users here when i return after all these years .
    April 18 12:24 AM
  • SowingSeason I'll give you the flag and feature on any review you want if you can get me 3 hours of consecutive sleep in one night! (So yeah, I don't care at all and am looking forward to it)
    April 17 05:41 PM
  • ButteryBiscuitBass Congratulations man, I didn?t know. Bet you are very busy now, say goodbye to your free time haha.All good this side, super busy with work and the Meus project, which we?ll be recording in August. So not much me time at the moment!Ahh yeah man, was good to see it get a review. :-)
    April 17 04:45 PM
  • luci awesome. it's best played in the dead of night. also give it time to sink in
    April 17 02:37 AM

  • luci i wanna rec u my fav singer/songwriter record. my kappa roots - the house of st colme burnt down
    April 16 08:17 PM
  • neekafat confirmed 5.0 (:
    April 14 02:41 AM
  • ButteryBiscuitBass No worries man! It?s a lovely record, Three Rivers is a standout for me and The Elm is great too.How have you been keeping?
    April 13 06:48 PM
  • neekafat I'm planning on it!! And man I'll have to get on that asap then (:
    April 13 05:34 PM
  • neekafat I might be throwing a 5.0 at this new Glen Hansard album btw
    April 13 12:43 PM
  • neekafat I'll be sure to check em out (:
    April 12 08:52 PM
  • neekafat Ngl they do sound a bit familiar but I can't place it!
    April 12 05:29 AM
  • neekafat I haven't ):
    April 11 08:39 PM
  • mynameischan i will be sure to check it. for some reason i didn't get a notification about my last few shoutbox posts.
    April 11 06:34 PM
  • DungeonBoy Hey Atari! thanks for getting back to me man, no worries, i'm sure you guys get flooded with stuff. I've been reaching out other blogs too but it's a challenge these days to get bands noticed in the sea of new bands. If you get around to checking it out sweet, if not no worries dude. Cheers!
    April 10 03:25 PM
  • luci np, i blame the impatient pup fans :p
    April 10 12:52 AM
  • Observer Nice man. Sure that will make for a good read. Who is the other user?
    April 7 01:09 AM
  • Observer new pup is awesome, prob my fav of theirs. You still reviewing it?
    April 7 12:55 AM
  • DoofDoof I have the previous album on a 3 and I think this one is not quite as good
    April 5 05:42 PM
  • luci nice! i'm reminded of her vocals when i listen to weyes blood, writing a review on that
    April 3 04:46 PM
  • DungeonBoy Hey man, if it's something the staff wanted to review then yeah that would be awesome, but I'm also trying to figure out the best way to submit new releases for review to the Sputnik staff
    April 3 01:01 PM
  • SowingSeason thanks for the heads up, listening now and it sounds like the perfect follow up to their last two dreamy naturewave pieces
    April 3 01:15 AM
  • SowingSeason Wait what
    April 2 11:43 PM
  • SowingSeason oh nice glad you dig it...it was pleasant but unremarkable for me personally...if every song was like the closer though it would have been a 4 or 4.5 easy
    April 2 05:02 PM
  • DungeonBoy Hey dude, thanks for responding, it's for a folk EP, Eloign - Chasing the Sound. I tried reaching out to the staff email from my label email, do you receive those?
    April 2 01:13 PM
  • DungeonBoy Hey Atari, hope you're doing well man! I've been trying to reach out to the Sputnik staff through email about submitting an album for review, but I haven't received a response and was wondering if that was a good way to go about it, or if there was a better way? Thanks man! sorry to PM you directly about this but was hoping you could at least point me in the right direction
    April 1 05:19 PM
  • SowingSeason Haha I was wondering if anyone was going to call me out on that or not. I think of her as more of an old school sounding folk artist, not sad pop. I dunno.
    March 31 09:25 PM
  • Slex Was definitely thinking about it, probably will :)
    March 31 04:27 PM
  • Slex Very excited to see what ya have to say about new Pup, I was expecting it to be pretty good but it completely blindsided me, much more versatile and surprising then the singles would have you believe
    March 31 06:42 AM
  • Slex I have a love-hate thing with them haha but it's totally on my radar
    March 31 06:07 AM
  • luci it's pretty good, 3.5 for me. at the dam and collected pieces are my fav by her
    March 30 02:13 PM
  • luci it's on my radar! she hasn't fumbled yet so i'm sure it's a treat
    March 30 01:44 AM
  • verdant she's so weird and cool !
    March 30 01:26 AM
  • luci the weyes blood record is a big deal. get on the npr stream :p
    March 30 01:18 AM
  • Trebor. I'm downloading it right now
    March 29 06:21 PM
  • SowingSeason ah, good to know! by the way, consider checking Lucy Rose's latest...I'm so over the sad indie chick thing, but for that style it's very well done. 'song after song' is downright beautiful if you want a track to sample
    March 28 10:25 PM
  • TwigTW Hey there Atari. I'm not sure if you're still looking for country-ish Recs. But if you are, here's a nice one: Molly Tuttle - When You're Ready. It's out on 4/12, but it's streaming early over at NPR: https://www.npr.org/2019/03/28/706971355/first-listen-molly-tuttle-when-you-re-ready
    March 28 04:42 PM
  • SowingSeason how did you find that having a baby affected your free time? like outside of work, especially? my son is due within the next 3 weeks and even though it's hardly a priority, it has left me wondering what to expect in terms of my commitments around here. figured I'd ask someone who's done it recently...
    March 27 06:13 PM
  • neekafat Fulton Street I is godly agreed
    March 26 06:19 AM
  • SowingSeason DUDE. Album (and esp. that song) have been wrecking me lately (in a good way). So glad I finally gave La Dispute the time of day.
    March 25 05:27 PM
  • neekafat That's fair, it was right on that edge for me too! Hope to hear more stuff from her in the future (: Excited to hear what you think, I'm not a huge jazz guy but it's just lovely
    March 21 07:58 PM
  • neekafat Thanks dude, a few songs come off as a bit plain but it's all good especially that closer! And I don't technically have one by him but I'm listening to In a Silent Way for that Sput Top 100 thing I've been doing and it's incredibleee
    March 21 06:41 PM
  • Jom Tragically, I haven't had a chance to listen yet! March-mid April is always nuckin' futz and then there's a steep drop-off after that with work. How do you like it?
    March 20 11:58 PM
  • neekafat I still do that all the time haha, and sounds good, I'll have to give them a spin! Super side note, but have you jammed any Miles Davis?
    March 20 06:10 PM
  • Atari Their debut is more pop punk whereas Home and Goodness are more emo. Hopefully you don?t hate them but I?ll be curious to hear what you think!
    March 20 05:55 PM
  • neekafat I just really don't like pop punk so that tag really scares me
    March 20 05:26 PM
  • neekafat Avenged Sevenfold wss my favorite band in high school so I can learn to love them
    March 20 03:52 PM
  • neekafat Would I like The Hotelier
    March 20 05:21 AM
  • Dewinged I think I gave it a quick listen but never went deep on it. Guess I'll have to revisit. I've had a hard time catching up on new releases lately. Work has been crazy.
    March 19 12:54 AM
  • Dewinged No worries! Had the feeling you'd like her. I like Galaxies a lot but still warming up to the rest of her songs.
    March 18 01:29 AM
  • BlushfulHippocrene Oh man, nice find! Sounds a lot like Lack the Low from last year (except, probably, better). I hear a bit of Regina Spektor, too.
    March 17 07:41 AM
  • neekafat thank you dear mr. staff (:
    March 16 07:21 PM
  • neekafat Oh fuk yes plz
    March 16 05:48 PM
  • Gameofmetal Hey man, did you see I put out a black metal song? Would love to get your thoughts on it.
    March 10 07:33 AM
  • Dewinged Check the singles from Alice Phoebe Lou, man, specially Galaxies, it's CRAZY.
    March 7 02:38 AM
  • Calc it certainly is. totally worth it though. love watching the new things she does.
    March 6 12:00 AM
  • neekafat There you go haha (: Sad to see that Madeline Kenney rating though, I'm falling so hard for that album right now
    March 5 07:46 PM
  • neekafat Adrianne Lenker write up is done... and thanks for all the help you've given me the last year, I really really appreciate it and I think it's a big part of the progress I've made lately (:
    March 5 07:35 AM
  • BlushfulHippocrene Thanks so much Atari. Appreciative that I'm lucky enough to be staff the same time as you -- don't go emeritus'ing yourself again any time soon!
    March 3 12:59 AM
  • Dewinged Atari! Thanks my man! And hey we only disagreed on a couple of them ;) Will check her!
    March 2 01:14 AM
  • Calc happy belated birthday bruv!
    March 1 03:08 AM
  • SowingSeason excellent...can't wait to get out of work and hear it...what do you think of it?
    February 27 03:22 PM
  • BlushfulHippocrene Please, please, please review it.
    February 23 04:30 AM
  • SowingSeason Finally coming around to PUP. 'Kids' is an awesome single.
    February 21 10:28 PM
  • BlushfulHippocrene Looks like it's not available in my region, but it will be up on Spotify in like three hours for me so I can wait. c: Oh, and I've heard Olsen before, but only her latest, I think, and quite some time ago -- what would you recommend?
    February 21 09:43 AM
  • BlushfulHippocrene Ooo. Thanks heaps, your rating is encouraging. I LOVE her, but she's yet to put out a great album. Have you heard her band Phantastic Furniture? Would recommend.
    February 21 03:14 AM
  • DungeonBoy Yeah dude, it's a fun album for sure. I like the faster songs the most, and that sitar effect part and sing along on track 2 had me laughing a bit, but it's good. I love Millencolin, and it's definitely up there in quality with True Brew!
    February 18 07:07 PM
  • DungeonBoy Hell yeah dude, currently on my first listen!
    February 18 02:35 PM
  • theBoneyKing Fare Thee Well, This Time Around, Crossing, and Aeroplane are my faves, its all good tough. Prob gonna bump to a 4 soon.
    February 17 02:07 AM
  • SowingSeason Thanks man, your well wishes mean a lot and I'll be sure to announce it when it happens :-)
    February 16 05:39 PM
  • SowingSeason Lol no worries I'm not keeping it a secret, just not broadcasting it either since there's still technically time for something to go wrong (I know it's rare, but stillbirth is a thing). April 17, although she's measuring ahead so could be sooner. We're both overjoyed; been wanting this for a long time.
    February 16 04:11 PM
  • DDDeftoneDDD only got to first track and it was awesome m/
    February 15 03:58 PM
  • DDDeftoneDDD many tks Atari
    February 15 11:56 AM
  • theacademy hoping to as im loving it but so, so, so swamped with work...i think sowing missed the dib so totally yours if you want it
    February 15 05:03 AM
  • theBoneyKing Have you gotten on the new Jessica Pratt yet? Very beautiful, barely-there folk.
    February 13 03:12 PM
  • Nocte Also new Can Bardd on the 22nd
    February 10 04:06 AM
  • Nocte Much agree
    February 8 08:16 PM
  • neekafat how's it going man? (:
    February 6 04:21 PM
  • budgie checking now, gracias
    February 5 08:52 PM
  • theBoneyKing Perhaps, yeah! It would be interesting to try as Ive never reviewed an instrumental album before and I tend to focus a lot on lyrics in reviews.
    February 5 03:25 PM
  • Rowan5215 you should give Out of the Vein a try! it's a little song but one of the best and most honest post-breakup records there is. hell even Dopamine and We Are Drugs are pretty damn great pop albums
    February 2 05:46 AM
  • Rowan5215 unrelated but are you into third eye blind at all? cannot stop listening to them recently, what a discography
    February 1 04:17 AM
  • Rowan5215 Lifted is so goddamn amazing, keen to check out Fevers and Happiness for sure. dude reminds me of Bob Dylan if he'd come up in the emo scene, lmao
    January 30 08:28 AM
  • mynameischan thank you, i appreciate it. some of it is a little dated and pretentious, but the core concepts are solid. what great albums.
    January 29 06:21 PM
  • Rowan5215 for sure man. always known their classics like Lua of course but never gave any full albums a go till now
    January 29 01:18 PM
  • SlothcoreSam Yo, have you checked out Spanish Love Songs covering Phoebe Bridge's "Funeral"? If not you need to. Link below.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HHvVU9CAZMY
    January 26 06:29 AM
  • ButteryBiscuitBass Ah, nah it?s a finished up Full length dude, it?ll be out April 12th on Northern Silence productions. She?s done well with it I feel.
    January 23 10:55 PM
  • ButteryBiscuitBass Not a worry mate. Yeah, they?re so good. They?re playing in Nottingham with Winterfylleth later this year so I?ll be all over that!Awesome man, I hope you enjoy the LP dude. Let me know what you think :-)
    January 23 05:39 PM
  • Deathconscious Sounds familiar, ill give it a jam for sure m/
    January 19 05:53 PM
  • SlothcoreSam Hey, if u liked that Flatliners album i recommended, check out Pears- Green Star. You won't be dissapointed. Very similar style, short, catchy, loud songs.
    January 19 07:05 AM
  • Deathconscious hey, glad you liked it man m/
    January 18 05:40 PM
  • SowingSeason haha ok deal
    January 18 03:36 PM
  • SowingSeason to be fair I probably listened once and discarded it...could be worth revisiting based on your rec. I just remember at the time thinking they sounded like a very average punk band writing checks that their talent level couldn't cash...always preferred Titus Andronicus for my dose of epic punk rock
    January 18 03:17 PM
  • SowingSeason ah nvm it was 2014 Throw Me In The River
    January 18 02:53 PM
  • SowingSeason I listened to them back in the day (2010-2012 somewhere) and remember not being impressed with whatever album people were collectively freaking out over at that time...
    January 18 02:52 PM
  • ButteryBiscuitBass I haven't heard that one, I'll check it out! I've been into a lot of the UK Black Metal scene atm, A Forest of Stars, Fen, etc, all good stuff. Other than that there's a Finnish band called Havukruunu which you have got to check, they're incredible.Thanks for email add mate, I've sent it over to you. The act is called Suldusk and she's wonderful.
    January 18 10:39 AM
  • ButteryBiscuitBass Nice one bro, yeah I will do! We're handling this one as professionally as possible, hiring string musicians for the studio, etc and getting it recorded / produced somewhere special :) Just a case of saving money now. I'm really proud of the writing that we're putting together.
    January 18 10:37 AM
  • ButteryBiscuitBass All good this side man, been busy writing the Meus LP which is coming together nicely. Also been on a huge black metal binge with regards to music listening. You come across anything good recently?Would you be able to drop me that email address again please bro? My phone just flipped out andd your message haha
    January 17 09:13 PM
  • luci oh yeah! alright!
    January 17 03:53 PM
  • ButteryBiscuitBass Glad you're all good man, no worries bro, I know you like your NeoFolk, so thought I'd hit you up. What's your email address and / or are you on facebook? Let me know and I'll send a stream over for you :-)
