Foxtails

I am very comfy this Saturday, so I got this CD not long ago in the mail. This new band released their debut earlier this year which has twinkly thingy or whatever. Vocals are absolutely beautiful and I can imagine that this band and Forth Wanderers can maybe do a split 7" one day. The band shifts from soft tunes to yelling. Structure//Agony Records released a cassette version of this band full length. On the other hand the band self released the CD format version I have. I got into the band right after hearing the first song. Some good stuff to listen to over the winter break. You can look into the bands bandcamp here they should have this up for free there, too lazy to post my own link. Sorry guis.

Algernon Cadwallader

Today morning Snowing and Square of opposition records announced the pre order of Snowing's compilation 12" that has the bands 4 way split, all five songs off FYEB, the compilation song they did, tour demo tape and the final 7" the pre order comes with a free shirt. I totally ordered one, I looked back and it seems like about half of everything is now gone. I would really want you to check SOO's storenvy to order that LP before they're gone forever. Since I posted Snowing in the past I think having Algernon here would be a total obvious for many of you. Algernon Cadwallader isn't some band with much familiar sounding of others. I hate the comparisons of Cap'n Jazz and Algernon Cadwallader for the main reason that Cap does not play math rock and both bands are vocally different as well. These two comparisons are super dumb. This band began sometime in 2006 with a demo cdr that was pressed to cassette and 7" twice I think. The demo left people wanting more, later on the band put out two LP's, one 7" and a split 7". There was also a 7" on the works but it was never released. Two of those songs were re-recorded for the bands debut LP "Some kind of Cadwallader" I find this bands entire discography fascinating. I can't say this band is full on emo but has a few emo bits here and there but mainly classified as a math rock/indie band. Algernon Cadwallader was those bands that were around the time I was still in high school. I remember making a bunch of mix cd's for my friends I usually would add a few Algernon songs on the cd's in the end I am sure Algernon is a forgotten band to them but i remember how much they'd tell me they loved the demo and the LP. So these are the ripped vinyl versions of the songs, not the digital format ones. The only thing I am mainly missing is the bands 4 way split song and the final live tape "What it is" but this is just about everything the band released. I also included the unreleased 7" songs (I can't remember how I even found them but I suppose it was years ago since I still have these around on my music file from my laptop) Some kind of Cadwallader and Parrot flies have been repressed recently so you can score those on either Hot gree records, Skeletal lightning and Lauren records. Some other labels may have these in their distro section. As for the Demo 7" and Fun 7" I had to cope those from discogs. Fun comes with a CD with 3 bonus songs but since mines is a used copy there was no CD. Pete (Vocalist/Bassist) went on to form a indie rock band called Dogs on acid (Along with a member of Snowing)

The Trigger Quintet

I was planning on posting new releases from this year for December but as you can see from the past posts not all bands are recent. I mainly changed my mind because I kinda don't want to break some sort of code or whatever by giving out free links to those records, I honestly prefer you picking them up yourselves. Sooner or later they'll be added on here or once I see the band themselves have it for free on bandcamp then I'll provide my own link. Well this band was another gem from the 90's that released a 3 song self titled 7" and came out on 2 different compilations sometime between 1995 and '96. One of the compilations is called Ground rule double which had some bigger emo bands like Braid, Mineral and The Promise Ring. It also had some cooler bands like C-Clamp, Cinco de gatos and Dianogah. The second compilation entitled "Use this coupon" had another excellent list of bands (Although just 6 bands on this one) Constatine Sankathi, Car vs. Driver and Bubble Jug. That being said yep that was all this band made, it's a fucking bummer honestly I would have thought of a lengthy discography when I ran into them. This is another recent mail day record from a few days ago. The cover of this 7" reminds me a lot like from Big daddy shotgun's or Passenger train proposal which shows the band playing. Not really something a bunch of the new bands do today. This is definitely some good underrated emo you will enjoy for the holidays.

Remingtin

This endless breath showed me this band, after downloading the discography I liked the bands 7" the most I bought it for 3 dollars. For the most part the sleeves on this record is DIY ass fuck, very handmade looking using a paper bag as the main sleeve, inside the sleeve there's a small insert with the lyrics sheet and a thanks. There's also a second sleeve which is the cover of the 7" that is white. I was totally digging the sleeve. The band 7" that sound The Vehicle Birth but much more chaotic and screamo hardcore intense. The band released two splits and I think two compilation songs you can download the other stuff on This endless breath The band later changed there name to "Remingtin (West Fucking Triad)" the 7" is only titled as "Remingtin"

Behind Closed Doors/The Day Of Man As Man

Those these two old mid/late 90's screamo bands were from Baltimore and shared the same member Guy Blakeslee. Both bands were very short lived, Behind closed doors released a odd two song single sided generic sleeve 12" record alongside a song on a compilation while The day of man as man did a two song untitled 7" with untitled songs, a song on a posthumous split 7" with another dead band from Baltimore "Stars of the Dogon" which was release about 3-4 years after this band was already dead and a unreleased song I have no idea if its in a compilation or now. Behind closed doors does sound a bit like Guyver one in a form while The day of man really reminds me a lot of the band Matsuri. No doubt Matsuri sounds like this band. For what its worth these bands left some extremely underrated records behind only Desperate and lonely has spoken about them. Like I mentioned The day of man's untitled 7" the songs are not titled. Hell there wasn't even a insert on my copy of the 7"

Forth Wanderers

I suppose I can start with some great LP's that came out this year that I bought. But I want to start with one that was actually released last year. Forth Wanderers is a pretty tight indie/emo/math rock female fronted band that just has so much catch and potential. Last year the band put out a 8 song length called "Tough love" shortly after the length was on limited cassette that includes the bands first 3 song EP, the 8 songs from Tough love and about 4 acoustic demo songs that were only on the cassette. This year Too Far Gone Records put out Tough love on wax in two different colors opaque yellow and the mixed one I have. The LP does not contain the EP or acoustic songs, it's Tough Love on its own. Once TFG mentioned they were putting this bands record out I definitely had to pre order it. They're working on a second EP hopefully it'll be released sometime in the spring of next year. I believe there are still copies left you can get yourself one from Too Far Gone Records
you can also check the bands bandcamp for their facebook and stuff

Strictly Ballroom

I can hear the wind blowing on my porch right now, sun is out but its fucking cold or at least for me it is. I'm only used to the Cali weather. Strictly Ballroom was a mid 90's emo band that slowly evolved as a band. The band first started off sounding more of a screamo fit during the bands first two 7"s (Especially the first one) I don't own everything from these guys but I can tell you that someone sent me a link to the bands digital discography. Yep these guys put out a digital discography not to long ago, it was disappointing to see that it was only digital and not physical format. A CD of it would've been super down. The discography has the bands LP, the 3 7"s, a few b sides and unreleased songs, and some compilation songs. Throughout the discography you'll notice the band won't go all slow "enocore" on all songs. I'd love to see these guys do a reunion or at least during the time of the digital discography being released. The band did put out a posthumous 7" single on Sub pop, I believe the band would have slightly changed much differently if they were still active. One of the members turned out to DJ or something and some band called Postal Service. Still find Strictly Ballroom as relaxing emo tunes.

Crash and Britany

My semester is finally close to a end and I believe I am doing pretty solid, I should be able to graduate this coming summer with an AA degree. My counselor wants me to transfer to a university but I honestly am not into doing more school stuff. Well enough of bullshit. Crash and Britany was a emo/indie rock bands from Sacramento, CA between '94-'97 I think or something like that. The band released a sick debut 8 song 12" titled "Kids Luv You" sometime in '95 (Recorded in November 1994) and a two song 7" in '96. As a emo dude I had to get these records, these are my recent ones I have bought but I felt like its a right time to discuss about them here. Angel angle from the 7" has different lyrics than the Angel angle from Kids luv you. It was one of the first things I noticed while singing along while reading the lyrics sheets. Not sure what made the band change lyrics. The band came out in a 2x12" compilation In memory of Jason, the song was also off the bands Self titled cassette. It's possible when the tape was released it might've been between the 7" and the 12". I heard the bands name was a inside thing because the vocalist had two nieces who had nicknames as "Crash" and "Britany". I also heard the drummer now owns some successful restaurants around Sacramento. The band draws between some slow sad emo stuff and some noisy sounds (On the 7") but still equaling to some mellow emo. I really like the bands entire discography (A short one) as far as the self titled cassette the quality is excellent. It has the two songs off the 7", a instrumental one and two other songs, one which a music video was made for and the other that was off the compilation.

Shout out to all these blogspots

Well lately I have been getting into that vaporwave/Future funk zone and I have been praying to Duane "The original pussy destroyer" this doesn't mean this is done. I actually have a ton more of emo records to show on here. But I want to give some shoutouts to the best blogspots I have ever ran into (No not sophies floorboard, I can't take a blogger serious when they mention to support bands when they obviously aren't supporting them either) but yes I really recommend you guys to check all these out. You will find more bands similar to these and even some I have posted on here. Some of these blogspots I have mentioned before here and there but this post is focused to them. Likely tomorrow or Wednesday I will post a band on here you guys, just have a little more patience.

Three Letter Engagement

As far as I know these guys lasted from '96-'97 they released a 4 song demo tape, a song on a zine compilation and a split 7" with a sometimes promise which is the closest thing I have from this band. The song on that split is so amazing that I had to buy this for a dollar fifty just for that song. The split is a rare gem so it also belongs on my book of AEN records the band has its similarities to a non boring version of Mineral, Patterns make sunrise and I have seen comparisons to Christie front drive. But the band can also remind me a big of bands like 100 words for snow, Last days of August, Racecar and a few others similar to that. I couldn't find a legit link to the bands discography. Some jerk uploaded all the 3 releases into separate folders using 4shared (which is possibly the worst thing that blogger could've done because it takes forever to wait and download) instead you can download the 6 songs in one file.

Sleeping for sunrise

So, I just ripped this record a few minutes ago. It just came in the mail today along with A sometimes promise/Three letter engagement split 7"... AND NO ONE EVER BOTHERED DOING SO.. Except me c:
This is ANOTHER short lived emo band from '97 that released this 7" and a debut album pressed onto CD. I have 8 of the 10 songs from that album but I suppose I'll add them on here as well for the sake of this band being hella of underrated and unappreciated. This 7" was one of this "I'll hear it during the rip process" and I honestly was impressed by the bands 7" I don't have much else to say about this nice band. Really wished a compilation CD was done that has both the debut and the 3 songs compiled together. I uploaded the video to get a sneak of the 7" songs there's also a video of someone who had uploaded the bands CD as well if ya want to check that too.


Sleeping for sunrise 7" (And the Skyline Symmetry songs... Well 8 of the 10)

Angel Falls

I automatically fell in love with this band after listening to this one and only 7" titled "Music on vinyl" It reminded me a bit of Bells on Trike in a way. Well this band from Arizona lasted extremely short. Maybe they might have released a demo or some unreleased songs but I don't have info on that stuff. It took me months to track down this 7" until someone from France was selling it very cheap and even the shipping was hella cheap (total might have resulted to 11 bucks) Angel Falls shared the stage with Nuzzle in '99 they. They broke up after their summer tour in 2000 and since then there's hardly any info on these guys. I can describe this band under "Pretty emo" it isn't slow boring-esque like Mineral or anything like that, Angel Falls really had a unique-ish way but still memorable to those of some of Bells on trike songs like "I Drive" or "Schematic". The 7" came with two stickers in which I will make a bootleg shirt out of them using a black shirt sometime later this year.

Watership Down

Today is a very windy ass day and it's 9:20 AM just as I'm typing this. I usually post in the mornings because the mornings are mainly the little free time I have. This band was a short lived emo band that was real and did it before any of those so called media trendy emo mcr, the used, Hawthorne heights, etc did it. This band put out a extremely amazing 3 song self titled 7" in the late 90's followed along a split cd which sounds more raw and very different from WD's 7" this is a band I found on that Russian blogspot. I added all 6 songs into the file but honestly the 7" is where the meat is all at for this band. I'll keep this one short because my eyes are so dry and I have another post for the day which follows up to another short lived band I also found at Desperate ad lonely's blogspot.

Big Daddy Shotgun

This was one of those Russian finds from Desperate and lonely, I really digged the only 7" the band did so I decided to get myself a copy for it to post on here. This is actually the most recent 7" record I own (On top of the others I am waiting) I don't know how much I have spent on getting all this shit but I believe it was quite a lot and mostly on the change I have. Big daddy shotgun was one of those bands that were inspired by Drive like Jehu alongside with Calabash case, they have that style going on. As much as I know on this band I only know of 4 songs, 2 from the 7" and 2 others on different compilations (Which I have one of those as well) this cover also reminded of as Passenger train proposal with the band doing some show or rehearsal (Something like that) I don't know much on the label either and I honestly never heard of it although the 7" came with a IFB records insert getting me confused whether or not IFB had to do a little something with this release. I have no fucking clue or maybe it was just thrown in there. Apparently they did a split with Boys set fire but I didn't see that on discogs or even mentioned on DAL's blogspot. Well the song posted on here is off that split (Which is the one I don't have) as for the other 3 I do and are on the file I am providing. I am going to download some good shit off of This endless breath's blogspot. I would also want you to check that blogspot out. That's it for now, I have some dope shit for November's post's and next month I will post some of the new records recent bands pulled.

When seasons change

Man the season has changed, sun is up but the air is so cold in my house. I was asked to do a little review on Sleeper Wave and I gave them a listen but then again I can't review what I don't own and honestly I really fell in love with the band's new self titled. It's what I would call if Capsule and CSTVT made a baby, this baby would turn out to be Sleeper wave. I been thinking of buying the cassette of the self titled and the demo (And if I do I will give out a link to the rip version tape because fuck digital quality sassy bullshit) anyways I promised new old school emo records and here is one of them (As I type I am still listening to sleeper wave)

Passenger train proposal was a very short lived emo band from the late 90's that pulled off a demo tape, the 7" I own and a unreleased second 7" with two songs that were never released but recorded. The band also did a cover song that was unreleased. I think the band is doing some reunions as so their bandcamp page (So many old bands being revived are doing this now) the bandcamp page has the discography off the self released tape they did which has all the songs in one release. You can't tell if its a discography or a full length because they all have the same quality. Well I ran into a mint condition of the bands only 7" for 2.50. Once I got it I really was digging the cover art on both sides of the 7" what I found interesting was that inside the paper sleeve there was a pen ink writing that said "!Jerk a tear emo kids!"

As for the music itself they were pretty decent maybe a little few years ahead of its time. It is a shame the band didn't do much but I do hope for some new recordings along the way. I don't need to give any AEN link on this one just download the discography off the bandcamp page

AMWWTDAWASDT is now in emo heaven

Recently All my wishes called it quits right after tour, I didn't even got a chance to see them they had lastly put a split tape with a song, I was able to get a tape and one of the shirts for the last time (I ended up with 4 of the band shirts) I felt like I had collected almost everything this band had put out except the other split tape since those songs were added on that one CD I got. The final song on the split wasn't just the final thing but they also had recorded two songs that were never released right before the band broke up. These songs still follow the same way as the previous work. Hell I fucking enjoyed the shit out of the songs. It's too bad this band is no longer active but maybe the band got bad luck for posting them on here? haha. I'll throw in the bandcamp page instead for the final 3 songs they put out. Maybe Conner's new label Structure/Agony (Member of Flowers taped to pens) would do a discography tape one day? I don't know its just something I would super look forward to.
Bandcamp

Arse Moreira

A band from mexico that explores chaotic hardcore and screamo, this tiny short discovery isn't even enough for me. This band only focused on splits (What a bummer on that) I like this tape to be considered as a full length release because it is pretty much it but yes it is a discography. The lasted a pretty good while for some more song to have been made, we will never know the reason why they never did. Most of the songs are on WAV (Sorry) but the quality is beyond excellent. I think one of the songs may be on mp3 though. Total is about 118 mb so if you have high speed internet that should be no problem. That one canadian label who put these out are selling them cheap I think it was like 6 dollars or something it's definitely one of those tapes to have on your collection. As an update to this blogspot I have some cool stuff to put out here soon. A mix of dead new, new and dead old bands. I recently bought a vinyl/cassette converter cord that does the job for both. I do have a bunch of tapes and as well some few vinyl records to rip out I should be expecting that on my door step no later than by early November.

Rip version of Full Health

Before my converter fucking up on me I did a rip version of The Reptilian's Full Health this one is more of a side a and side be tracks I did not cut them and plays on like it should. I had no reason to do so but I was testing my converter at the time when it worked.


Full health

Small Steps

Small Steps is much more of those Modern dead bands they had change signature style within the 3 releases the band did. Far of my favorite release would be the band's middle release called "Puzzlejar" it was also the only physical release with a label (Same label that did Jazz Hands the party tape) It often reminds me of a less chaotic Calculator band or something. These 7 songs were so good and the much more memorable ones off this band, or at least to me. No ones posted any videos on this band but I will give the link to the bands bandcamp I will also provide a file for Puzzlejar EP
