Everyone should grab the new stuff from Those Mockingbirds. And there's a band called Brooklyn Vegan? Confused. Does it feature staff members from the website?

Hey all, Project Tu
here. Our Concentra EP is for anyone that's into rap fusion, r&b, or ambient music (odd combination, I know lol), but thank you in advance for anyone who gives us a listen!
06:12 AM on 09/16/11
Nice, New Venice, Revolushun.
06:32 AM on 09/16/11
James Vincent McMorrow is lovely.

You're the man.
After seeing the RIYL for Surface Area I seriously doubted that all those influences could come through in one band, but I stand corrected. Hit the nail right on its head, cool stuff. Also, can't hate on a Steve Winwood cover.
I was seeing some bandcamp hate yesterday so if anyone wants a direct link to a zip file of our new EP here you go:
Huge thanks to everyone who takes the time to check us or any of these other bands out, you're absolutely amazing.

Thanks in advance to anyone who checks out my band, This Glass Embrace
, under single songs. We actually have a few other free songs on our Bandcamp, too. Our new record, Brother, We Are Devils!
, came out last month.
Hope everyone has a good Friday!

check out the palisade song under singles if you're into 90's rock/post-hardcore! we recently recorded at skylight studios (balance and composure, tigers jaw, agitator, wrong answer, rock bottom, etc) so hopefully you're into it. we have another new jam on our bandcamp, too if you feel so inclined: http://palisade.bandcamp.com
