I was digging the song until the verse kicked in. I'm just not a fan of his voice.

Just wondering, though: what differentiates this as getting its own news post rather than being grouped in the "Unsigned Band" round-ups, or whatever they are called.

A lot of it has to do with personal preference, for better or for worse. I liked what I heard and thought others would as well, so I gave it a post. The small band round-up is only posted like once a month these days, so discretion has to be used.

I guess its just not my cup of tea. Keep doing what you're doing though.

Yeah, it's not a bad thing, I was just wondering if there was a process in distinguishing between the two or not.

Oh, we will be. March seems like when we'll be able to start getting out. And we're playing the half time (or some such thing) at a Roc City Roller Derby bout at the Dome Arena on May 14th. Stoked.

And thanks for the kind words! Glad you dig it. Keep in touch.

Nice, the Dome Arena is 2 miles down the street. Not sure about Roller Derby though? Haha, I'll have to check it out. Do you guys have a site that has a list of shows?

The shows will be listed on the main site once we get a section for it, on Facebook, and on Myspace. the myspace www.myspace.com/meetscholar has another full length track streaming called "everything is backwards". Hope you give it a listen!

I really like what I'm hearing guys! Unfortunately, I live in Utah so I imagine it'll be years when/if I ever get a chance to see you. Is your EP being released digitally?
