Something To Do With Ramblings.
Rejoining The AbsolutePunk Community
10/08/10 at 08:01 PM by Andy Antar
I had to exit my digital reality momentarily due to the death of a close family member. I had several reviews lined up for the site at the time, which I failed to follow through on as a result. For that I apologise.

In the interim period, my taste in music has changed quite significantly. I aim to investigate what it has also done to my writing style.

Recommendation: Birds Of Tokyo

Seriously, popular alt. rock has never sounded better. Their genre might put you off, but please don't underestimate these boys, they might be unsigned but they're bursting with talent. Listen to "Silhouettic" - easily one of the best songs to come out of Australia in recent years. I would seriously recommend their stuff for Closure In Moscow fans.

I found this girl while lazing to some droning television this afternoon. What a perfect Sunday. Give her a try, I'm not normally a fan of this brand of Indie, but I absolutely loved her performance. She cites artists like 'Billie Holiday' as her inspiration, just for your information. Just listen to "Clementine" ;)

Too Wrinkled To Be Called A Man
06/14/09 at 12:41 AM by Andy Antar
"In a bid to dilute life's cruel taste I submerged myself in water for forty years. When I awoke from my watery dream I was too wrinkled to be called a man and too man to be called a wrinkle. I knew that I could no longer call dry land my home and I had failed to find comfort in the depths of the darkest oceans. My only option was to freeze myself within a block of man-sized ice in the desperate hope that future generations may find a cure for loneliness."

- Hal (Batteries Feel Included)

The most amazing blog, the entries really resound in me. Bitterly humorous and strangely hollow.

Bury Your Flame
06/07/09 at 06:06 AM by Andy Antar
"But there was no sharp pain this time
Just the ghost of your presence compressing my chest like a vine
An unshakable absence
Like most of my insides crawled out of my mouth and went west
But that's fine

We cast our hearts in plaster
We imagined our bodies were fashioned of stone
But they chipped at the brick and mortar
We found out that we're only layers of skin hiding bones
And our bones are like chains, old and rusted in the rain
They're going to snap when the weight shifts "

I love the direction they've taken with this album. "Crisis" had a lot of filler material, but "Old Crows Young Cardinals" is solid throughout. One of the better albums of the year so far, I assure you.

A nice little Australian band here. If you're into Closure In Moscow, Circa Survive, Saosin and the like, at least give "The Mile" a play or two.
