Oyster Boy is Zach LaMalfa and it’s really fucking awesome. Someone on last.fm described it as like Bob Dylan meets Titus Andronicus meets Casiotone For The Painfully Alone and thats a better description than anything I can say why am I still writing. also worth noting, when he sent me the album art, he also sent “lots of kisses” because zach is a nice person
Some real boner jamz right here, Laserdisc Visions is the elevator music for the elevator to the 4th dimension. remember the loading music for all yr Dreamcast/N64/SNES games, this is it. basically if that Ford & Lopatin album was better and more Japanese informercial-esque. ok bye enjoy have sex to this
My friend’s brother used to play in this band a few years ago. They play a wild and messy mix of DIY punk, hardcore, sludge and 90’s noise rock. The song “Pushing Canada To Alaska” sounds like a sludgier Titus Andronicus kinda I dont know. I think I included their demo and a split they did but I’m not really sure. This probably is the wrong artwork, I don’t know. Just listen to Michael Jordan
I saw Apart open for Empire! Empire! (I Was A Lonely Estate) and The Reptilian back in March and if Empire Empire wasn’t so perfect, Apart would have completely stolen the show. If you like screamo or hardcore in the vein of Touche Amore or Modern Life Is War, then you will love Apart as much as I do. Plus they were really nice guys and put on a super energetic show, so make sure to support them. This EP is better than the new Touche album. THERE I SAID IT
If you are apprehensive for some reason, you can listen on their Bandcamp
this has been out a while and been around the web a few times, but if you havent heard it yet then
fuck you now is the time. apparently this was released back in december but otherwise this would be one of the few great albums of this year. released on stones throw (+), her voice sounds like Nico (++) and its really dubby and Public Image Ltd.-esque in some ways (+++). also she made this with geoff barrow of portishead (+)!!!!! also includes a brilliant cover of The Kinks (+)!!!!!!!!!!!!
sorry kidz that’s the closest i could get to an album pic (lol last.fm). as far as i can tell, this band basically doesn’t exist. their album is ridiculously difficult to find, and there isn’t any record of the band really on the interwebz. SO U GUYZ R IN FOR A TREAT. really good emo/screamo – that late 90s early 00s style we all know and love. the album is great on a whole, but the last song “Excerpts From The Note Wrapped Around The Brick I Put Through Your Window” is on an entirely different level. Long track name, I know – but they can get away with it because they aren’t a post-rock band or sufjan stevens. srsly, get on this.
