Sorry ;(

Sorry for the lack of updates to the's been a bit crazy I'm still getting acclimated to my new job, and getting stuff fixed around the house. Anyway it's not the way I'd want to start posting again, but we should all be hanging our heads today and for the rest of the week in honor of the disbandment of Rainer Maria. They gave us everything they could and we should all be happy with that, although I'm quite sad myself.

So far 2006 has not been kind to me with Arab Strap breaking up, Grandaddy breaking up, Sleater-Kinney breaking up, Syd Barret passing, and the Blind Tiger being closed down! But alas, I started this site, which has been a blast, and found a ton of new bands!

Speaking of which, a few new bands that I'm hooked on that are definitely worth checking out!

When They Know You They Will Run -
What is with the UK just churning out insanely visionary post/art-rock? WTKYTWR puts together a sound that warrants legitimate comparisons to Explosions in the Sky, complete with the ritualistic crescendos. I can say without hesitation that their indie (no label) status will not be for long, especially if they can get a small break stateside. Throughout their four-song demo they stretch through almost every terrain of sound imaginable. I was tipped off by Micky about these guys and I'm completely hooked. I would highly recommend checking them out if you're a fan of instrumental music (or even if you're not, they might change your mind) especially if you're a fan of Mogwai, EitS, Mono. You can check out two of their four songs, they have available on their demo below:
Moving to America

Parkside -
What do you get when you mix equal parts multi-instrumental Adem-esque indie rock, with the Books cut-copy style mixing? I know, I was intrigued myself! If this peaks your interest, then you are in search of Parkside. Easily one of the easiest bands to appreciate. They have a catchiness that reminded me instantly of The Boy Least Likely too...oh yeah and they're from the Netherlands! I just wish they had a full-length out. I can't urge you highly enough to check out their sites and grab some of their free tracks. Give them a listen yourself and let me know if you agree!

The Disintegration
A Million Scientists
