the Mixtress identified a Suede song that I had assumed was Suede, and #700 turned out to be Hurl . . .I found that after getting the album with #59 on it.
anyway, here are the songs that have been posted on the mumblr lately
this reminds me of a Helmet kind of band.
it's got a rather catchy chorus, but i can't really pick out the words.
now lets talk about Shellac!
this is the end of a backwards acoustic ballad with a guitar solo
it sounds sad as shit
i have no possible guess as to what this could be
I just know that THERE WERE THOUSANDS!!!
GOD DAMMIT THIS IS REAL!
you don't think it's gonna be shoegaze when it starts, but it gets there and you're like "shit, it's like 'only shallow' sped up"
the rest of it sounds a bit like Lush.
I have no guesses.
this is just crazy
You've got a tuba on the bass, a trumpet on the lead, a xylophone and a guy screaming. The part with the xylophone sounds just like Girls Against Boys. Dude even sings like Scott Mccloud when he tries to sing. "I disconnect waterway systems, i fall asleep thinking". Also, says he wants to kill something. . .dont' know what? (the singer? the drummer? the sexplayer? get right down to it. we gotta amuse ourselves somehow. . . . .make it alright)
This one sounds kind of sad too, but not as sad as squirrels.
alright. Here's the thing about this song.
It came on, and I was half asleep, but I pressed record. right?
it was the end of the tape. I had to turn it over really fast to try and get the rest of the song.
the lady did not say who it was. . . .if she was even there at that point. It sounds like she wanted to end the show with THE SADDEST SONG EVER.
. . . . .
it's shoegazey, has that keyboard flourish going all through it, and a girl singing.
. . . it's also REALLY FUCKING SAD.
It sounds like some kind of random Lush song. . . but I really don't think it's Lush because I cannot hear any kind of accent at all (and everybody knows the girls from Lush had heavy English accents . . . .maybe not as heavy as Morrisey's, but they were there)
oh, and please don't get it twisted. it is NOT SHELLAC.
Even though I keep quoting that song in the tags.
PS - they were REAL SQUIRRELS!!!!!
PPS - THERE WERE THOUSANDS!!
sorry guys. . .i LOVE suirrel song
I mean, I fucking LOVE squirrel song
anyway, hope someone knows these

from the math rock post
#26 is “Darjeeling” by Rodan
#59 is “Effie” by Hurl
identified by a guy known as "gunkgunk"
so, some new tracks were posted there
and I'm gonna recap them for you here
it's got a fucking weird time signature, and sounds just a little bit like the Melvins with no bass.
#108 (the infamous "EJECT EJECT EJECT EJECT WOOO!!" song)
in this song, there are two things I can pick out that the seemingly hyper singer is saying.
1. "sustain time limit"
2. "EJECT EJECT EJECT EJECT WOOO!!!" (I will not be held responsible if you get that stuck in your head and start yelling it at random inopportune times)
Somewhere I have another song that I'm pretty sure is also by whoever this is.
(some song where he keep saying "i'm a small white animal", and there's looping guitar feedback)
we got chick singers, and probably some of the best feedback at the end of a song.
no idea who this could be at all
very happy to post the first random tape that is not from the blogspot version of the site.
I'll posting the rest of the unidentified from the other version, and new ones.
(submit answers in the "ask" column . .. . sorry I forgot to add one before....still getting the hang of this mumblr thing
this song reminds me of Blonde Redhead (except no female vocals) and Unwound a little bit too.
It also sounds like it might be live.
harsh, fast, angry hardcore punk that was recorded on a night when reception was not that good at all.
The vocals sound a little bit like Henry Rollins, but I really don't think this is Black Flag.
Am I wrong?
hardcore (crust?) punk.
starts with some gang vocals, gets really fucking fast in the middle (after the sound drops out. . . .that's the radio station).
that's all I can really say.
i'm watching both of these. . . . .really. . . .i really am. . . . .seriously. .
(but the mumblr site will likely get the new updates first, because i'm on there too god damn much).
keep those ears open. don't worry that the 4th quarter of the years music releases have all been disappointing. . .it happens. . .

the chorus to this song gets stuck in my head once a month
never knew who bloody sang it though.

.....nor did i know it had a UK video, with the sped up 60s intro included
no posts all month. . .again. . . .lookit that. . . . .

You remember this one, the one that I said "isn't Texas is the Reason"?
except IT TOTALLY IS TEXAS IS THE REASON!!
it's "blue boy" and it's from a split
no wonder I couldn't bloody find it.
I wanna post new songs, but the others from last post have not been guessed at all.
I've been busy with KHR stuff, and generally being a joyless sod (didn't April fucking suck?!?!?!)
I definitely want to post some more before Maryland Death Fest.
Til next time, stay tuned.
oh, right, I'm on Twatter now.

I've found a lot of new shit i love, and here is some right now. . .
after the disappointment that was Saigon's album that has been so long in the making it's ridiculous (I knew he'd come out with something before Papoose though), I was introduced to the hip-hop I've heard since finally checking out Dr. Dooom a month ago
I liked Death + Taxes mag on facebook. One day, they posted this. .
what the fuck?
you can get everything they've put out so far at the official Odd Future site
Earl and Tyler's albums are my favorite
They get compared to Wu Tang and Kool Keith and Eminem a lot
I have another comparison
Cereal Carpens (the late Camu Tao's hilarious alter ego)
first of all, that name fucking RULES!!!
It's like a name a powerviolence band would have (John Cougar Concentration Camp?)
. . .this is a shoegaze band though.
They're so much like My Bloody Valentine, they have Bilinda lookalike in the band.
She plays bass though.
That's from the new album, that apparently is supposed to be out already.
and with that, TIME FOR METAL
-Dragged Into Sunlight
their album is actually from 2009. . . but I think it's about to get rereleased on Prosthetic Records.
a mix of sludge, and black metal and death metal that makes me think of Incantation a little bit.
-good buddies of mine from the Decibel message board have said this is the year of the grind (mainly because Pig Destroyer are supposed to put out an album, but Gridlink, Total Fucking Destruction, Rotten Sound, Noisear, Maruta, Psudoku, and a fuckton more will be bringing it too), but i gotta say, it's been a fucking great for techinical death metal
the good kind, that's heavily influenced by Gorguts
Exhibit A. ULCERATE
I've loved Ulcerate since Of Fracture and Failure.
I wish they'd come play in the USA. Maybe one day. Maybe they'll get on MDF next year. . .who knows?
Their new album that comes out this year, is some crazy shit.
Imagine if one of those hydra head atmospheric sludge bands got a death metal drummer and told him "play twice as fast as we're playing".
it's one of the most interesting things i've heard this year
Exhibit B. PYRRHON
Pyrrhon are from NYC. They're a combination of Gorguts and Deathspell Omega.
You can get their new album right on that site.
Exhibit C. MITOCHODRION
You know Portal. Imagine if Portal kept their, but had a more straightforward sound. You might get something like this:
Exhibit D. BARING TEETH
this is HELLA Gorguts
That's just a practice of a brand new song with no vocals
Willowtip is putting out an album from them this year.
You can hear them with vocals here
I love this kind of shit.
If you know some more bands similar to this, tell me about them.
I just got into Deathspell Omega last year, and anything like that I will also give a shot.
