I had the pleasure of listening to this for the first time with Eda. We were exchanging messages gushing about how good this album is even during our first listening experience. It's a wonderful album. I could've easily talked about "Sunspots", "Dying Star", and "October" but it's already a super lengthy review, so I apologize to anyone and everyone who reads it.

Also, if this review helps anyone discover Winterpills, please direct your thanks to Eda because they're her band! Stream the full album on their Bandcamp, and if you like what you hear, then please purchase it and support some wonderful and equally talented musicians. They deserve it.

Yep, listening to the album like that was pretty amazing. We have to do it more often!

And the review is great, as expected. Wuv you.

I don't log in a whole lot on this site, but I do visit the site on an almost daily basis and sift through thread after thread to hear / find new music. And a few weeks ago I was looking through some thread where Lueda mentioned a few bands she felt were vastly underrated and favorites of hers and one of them was Winterpills.

And as shallow as this may sound, the name stood out to me, so I looked them up on amazon and ended up buying Central Chambers that night. I instantly fell in love with the album and then quickly downloaded their S/T and then The Light Divides and Tuxedo of Ashes - EP and then of course, All My Lovely Goners.

fantastic band. easily becoming one of my favorites.

so thank you Lueda!

Fantastic review, as beautifully written as the record itself is. What a year it has been so far.

Also, I agree with the guy above, the passion you and Lueda have for the music you promote is what initially drew me to you, and now the love for similar music is following.

once again you prove why your my favourite writer here. i feel like i've asked this question before but i don't remember the answer. why don't you cover more talked about albums? just seems kinda dumb how you never get the replies views of a thomas nassiff, drew burgeringer or ryan gardner.

anywho my fav songs so far are minxy, the sun is alone and october. i can tell this will be my go to album on my ipod for ages.

That is so awesome. Central Chambers is one of my favourite albums of all time, actually. Glad to hear that you like it so much, and I'm even happier that you love the band in general.

Hope to see you post more often!

Haha it's always nice to see you in our threads!

Introducing people to new bands and/or being passionate about bands no matter their popularity is far more important than getting an insane amount of replies. And I'm pretty sure Broden would agree. I think people who cover popular music only to receive attention shouldn't be in the music business at all.

Eda expressed it wonderfully, but just to reiterate, it's not about the views and replies. I tend to have more passion to write about the bands and artists that don't always receive the attention and the recognition that the bigger bands on AP.net undoubtedly do. It would be absolutely fantastic if Winterpills got the appreciation of The Wonder Years for example, but we need to be realistic, it's not going to eventuate on a website that was built upon the foundations of pop/punk music.

If any writer or reviewer contributed to any form of website or publication with the sole focus of achieving views and becoming a popular writer, it's the incorrect attitude to possess. I think it would be highly self-indulgent if that was someone's motivation, you know? I was hired by Eda to promote these indie artists, and that's where the passion comes from, that's why I write lengthy reviews because I want to showcase them to the website, I want to incorporate some detail into these reviews so that the audience are left without any semblance of doubt that these little bands are so wonderful and talented just through reading some words.

In 2010 Eda single-handedly gave Angus and Julia Stone a platform in which to absolutely soar onwards and upwards from. They weren't known whatsoever in America or anywhere for that matter outside of being Australia's underground "indie darlings". Through an enormous amount of time, effort, work and sheer perseverance, Eda promoted them tirelessly and without exaggeration, I believe that everything she did contributed to Angus and Julia Stone becoming massive. That example is what drives me, it spurs me on knowing that it's possible to accomplish that for the majority of bands that we work with and alongside. I want that. I want that sense of fulfillment in knowing we've made a difference to these small bands and they can start earning a living from creating music.

I may not be some famous music journalist, but as cliche as it is, it's about the music. I'd gain more satisfaction from knowing my one thousand views and five comment review ensured another dozen people became fans of said band rather than my forty thousand views and 300+ comments achieving polarizing opinions on an upcoming Paramore/All Time Low record.

I'm developing my own little audience; I see familiar members comment on my reviews and I'm so appreciative. If it continues to expand, that's amazing. If not, I'm fine with that too.
