Great Falls - Strong Cures

God this is good. Why aren’t more people listening to this band?

Isis - False Light

I pretty much checked out on Isis after Panopticon, but the early releases still crush.

Mountain Man - And Live In The Past.

I’ve always had an unexplainable love of bands with two drummers. 

Young Widows - Kerosene Girl

I was prepared to hate this album. I loved “Old Wounds” and did not care for “In And Out Of Youth And Lightness” at all. I expect that downward trend to continue. And it did, at first, but i kept listening. Eventually I got sucked in. Its a great album, not “Old Wounds” great, but still damn good.

The Golden Bridge, as a whole is pretty uneven. The slow tracks almost sound like another band entirely. The the rockers, are balls out.

Playing Enemy - Monaco

I can not stop listening to this band.

Go buy the vinyl reissue of the great album that this song is from, I was Your City.

Whores - Fake LIfe

God damn. 

Just, god damn.

Great, but short lived band from Grand Rapids MIchigan.

Go download their last release for free (pay what you want) from bandcamp.

Trap Them - The Facts
Trap Them

I am that goddamn son of a bitch.

I forgot how much I love this band. 

Antarctica - Closetful of Churches

The ep was great, but the full length was garbage.

Antarctica, unbeknownst to me, was probably my introduction to post rock/pretty drone. So thanks I guess.
