The Pine

Maybe I should talk about this band (This post took me weeks because I was very lazy, I am sorry) I had plans to save this one later for the year but I don't have plans picking up the few releases I do not own. To start this one off The Pine was presented to me by the blogspot Lyrics won't reach the audience. The only releases that were posted digital in the blogspot were the 14 track self titled, homeless life and lead blocks for feet. Over time I started seeing Days slipping by, The Saddest Landscape split, La Quiete Split and Don't need regret as digital files. The Pine wasn't flashy to me when I first heard them and to be honest I didn't get into Roger King's voice not until I one day became used to it that I ended up liking the band for having there own sound although heavily influenced by bands like Evergreen and The Hated, The Pine's vocals are more high pitched and whiny in a way it won't annoy you but to realize they have a cool thing going on. For a band that lasted 5 years they put out a lot of material. Over the years many misc. CDr's and tapes have been popping out on the internet such as the legendary demo tape where vocalist/guitarist Roger King played drums in along with some acoustic live sets and a 8 song demo tape of some sort with demo versions of days slipping by and a few early versions of the splits and compilations. Although I am only posting what I have, check Desperate and lonely blogspot for The Pine's entire discography here. It is one of my favorite blogspots. I don't know any other blogspot that does it as good as this one. I don't know how much money I had spend on merch from The Pine from the 3 shirts I have to the records I own. The Pine is simply known as the band I fell in love with because of its emotions.

    1. A few years back Roger king was still making shirts for the pine, i ended up getting 4 of them along with the trucker hat. As for the records I bought the self titled 7"/LP, Homeless life and lead blocks for feet off Discogs. Days slipping by was bought off indiemerch store for a low price of 8 dollars. Don't need regret I found a cheap copy of that LP at interpunk for also 8 dollars. The most expensive records were the 7" (20 dollars), Self titled LP (18), Homeless life (16) and lead blocks for feet (20 I think)
