Memories Made In The Coldest Winter
E-mails, contacts, and sleep
01/04/09 at 11:30 PM by hockeyguitar99
So today, I decided to take some initiative and e-mail some labels about releases. I hit up Vagrant for Two Tongues, TMG for The Appleseed Cast, Epitaph for Thursday, and I was looking for an RJA contact, but couldn't find one. I want to hear the record, partially because Steve said that sans "You Better Shoot Yourself In The Foot With A Shitty Single (better known as You Better Pray)" it was actually a pretty decent record, and because I already thought of an awesome intro using the shot in the foot thing. I also don't want to buy it. If anyone knows where a press contact for the band is, I'd love for some help. Also, it's 1:30 AM, I have to get up in 5 hours. I need sleep. Damn.

New Songs Galore
12/29/08 at 11:47 PM by hockeyguitar99
A rundown of my opinions on new tracks from some of my favorite bands and most anticipated:

Taking Back Sunday: Eh, it's okay, not as bad as everyone says, but not very good either
Thursday: Very good. Chaotic, fast, memorable.
New Found Glory: Great. I wasn't feeling it at first, the lyrics felt childish, hook seemed weak, but through many listens, I love the hook, found a deep message/topic in the lyrics.
Grizzly Bear: I found some live tracks from Letterman and Conan, both are amazing. More straight forward then their old stuff.
Two Tongues: Crawl is pretty good, Wowee Zowee is amazing. Not only a sweet Pavement reference, but very, very catchy.

Put your thoughts in the comments if you wish, agree, disagree, whatever.

Full Collapse/War All The Time
10/04/08 at 04:29 PM by hockeyguitar99
I pulled this albums out yesterday night in anticipation for the new Thursday/Envy Split. These records are both truly great albums. I'm holding out on listening to leak, it's killing me, but I'm glad I'm doing it. I can't wait for my Pre-order to come. Anyway, if you don't have these (but who doesn't?), please pick them up, you'll be doing yourself a service.
