Love in Stockholm - 2014

Billy Moon - Young Adult. - 2014

The title: "Young Adult" is pretty simple.
I've just graduated from University and now I have to be a grown-up.

This new EP is so much better than any of my previous groups.
They all seemed to fall apart because guys were more interested in being personal trainers than being in a band.
Less squats, more rock.
First single Video Girls is a love/hate song about porn.
My drummer is better than your drummer.

I'm not as good talking about myself as I used to be.

Really fun release... Check it out!

Nothing But Hope And Passion - Nothing But… Spring - 2014

‘When spring came, even the false spring, there were no problems except where to be happiest. The only thing that could spoil a day was people and if you could keep from making engagements, each day had no limits. People were always the limiters of happiness except for the very few that were as good as spring itself’ – Ernest Hemmingway

daysdeaf - When Colour Lost Light - 2014

Some music just stays with you and leaves you deaf for days...

The process involved using a ten-gallon fish tank and mixture of acrylic inks, food dye, and pigment. We explored the emotion and tone of the song through a series of experiments by mixing these materials.

Arkells - Never Thought That This Would Happen - 2014

They wrote the record in our hometown of Hamilton, with a workmanlike approach. Their workshop was a 150-year-old building: a former spice factory, turned gay nightclub, turned abandoned building. The room isn't acoustically primed, but that forced the band to keep the essentials, lock into the grooves, and let the natural reverb take the tunes into cinematic places.

"Never Thought This Would Happen" was inspired by Hillside. Under the sun, there's live music, workshops and summer dresses flowing in the wind. Beneath the moonlight, there's drinking, dancing, and campfire sing-a-longs. This song takes place after all of that, sometime between Saturday night and Sunday morning.

VARSITY - Thanks For Nothing - 2014

VARSITY submitted a year back and I loved their garage rock slacker ass approach to making songs; I just got their newest release and it again is solid. It has touches of Pavement, Throwing Muses, all over it... Great submission, Thanks.

Home Alone - There's A Light Coming Through - 2014

Slightly spooky space gaze music coming out of TO, Canada... It's nice to listen to reflective tunes on a day where the air is calm, light is hazy and the day can just go on forever.
Wonderful release.

Cloud Cult - When Water Comes to Life - 2008

An Unofficial video, but whatever! Outstanding Song...

And when the angels come
They'll cut you down the middle
To see if you're still there.
To see if you're still there.

And underneath your ribs
They'll find a heart-shaped locket,
An old photograph
Of you in Daddy's arms.

And then they'll sow you closed
And give you back to the water
From where we're all born
From where we're all born

And you'll feed the ghosts
And you'll feed the living
You will be a stranger
And you'll be a friend

You'll be the leper
You'll be the healer
You'll be the hero
And the tragedy

And when they sow you closed
They'll give you back to the water
From where we're all born
From where we're all born

When they burn your body
All that's left is sand crystals
Two tiny handfuls
All the rest is water, water, water

All you need to know
Is you are born of water
You are made of water
You are merely water, water, water

All you need to know
Is you are born of water
You are made of water
You are merely water, water, water
