Shirts from Matthew is so great. Esp. the song "Ava-Mae"

carramrod2005 03/23/12 06:16 AM

Really liking Shy Technology

ImOnFire54321 03/23/12 06:46 AM

I'd appreciate any feedback on the Atlas Hands - EP and check out the Worn Colors song, it's just a demo but those dudes are doing big things.

TerrancePryor 03/23/12 07:18 AM

I Hate Our Freedom is awesome.

That's awesome to hear. I recorded this album and play bass, keys and trumpet on it as well.

MADSTA 03/23/12 07:27 AM

Great week, I grabbed a bunch of stuff today.

ivebeendegaused 03/23/12 07:35 AM

It's so rad that AP.net does stuff like this. I have to agree about Shy Technology -- pretty fucking sick! Any feedback on lightfields is much appreciated. I was terrified when I submitted our EP, now I'm anxious to hear what people think.

Jeff_Ryan 03/23/12 07:50 AM

Woooo Titanics is awesome. Didn't know this was coming.

JordanKTM 03/23/12 08:04 AM

Feedback on our comp would be appreciated!

Amongster 03/23/12 08:23 AM

Shy Technology is dope as hell. Their album is like what I imagine We Were Promised Jetpacks would sound like if they made a grunge-influenced record.

bradsonemanband 03/23/12 08:25 AM

if any of you musicians want to be on a HUGE online compilation featuring 500 unsigned U.S. bands that i am putting together, you should submit a track! all the info is here.

jdr277 03/23/12 09:56 AM

Shy Technology is pretty sweet, another RIYL for them would be The Front Bottoms. Also everyone should scoop up Mercies, I've had that album for about a year, really amazing indie stuff.

I'd love to hear what people think of the Worn Colors song, and check out the Atlas Hands EP. I've known that dude for a while and I think those are two of the best songs he's written
