Record Store Day: What’re you getting edition

I am so excited for Record Store Day this year. What is Record Store Day you ask? Why does it make April 16th infinitely better than any other day of the year for Vinyl lovers? Take it away Mr. Homme.

So many great bands are putting out fantastic platters of wax for music lovers of all persuasions. The list of special releases is simply staggering. I’m already fairly certain which records are must haves for me.

1. Between the Buried and Me – The Parallax: Hypersleep Dialogues They're better than you
A Proggy Death Metal EP that we’ve told you about before, this marks BTBAM’s first release with Metal Blade after jumping ship from leading independent douchers Victory Records.

2. Mastodon – Live at the Aragon Vinyl/DVD
How do I like Get the VINYL IN THE DVD PLAYER MAAAAAAAAAAN?
Live Mastodon Music, Live Mastodon Video, Trippy Companion video to Crack the Skye. The only way this package could be better is if they gave you an 8th and papers.

3. My Chemical Romance – Na Na Na Picture Disk 7′
Why? Cause FUCK YOU that's why
My Chem’s undeniably catchy first single from Danger Days with unreleased track “Zero Percent” on a very cool looking 7 inch? I’m down

What’re you getting fools?

In Which I Subject People To Music

So, I’ve been helping out a friend’s radio show lately, which has been a lot of fun. I’ve heard from at least one person who was interested in what we’ve been playing, so I’ve decided to compile lists of our song selection after each show. I didn’t do this after the show two weeks ago (last week we were off the air), so Here are both week’s lists. All the bands and songs listed here are worth checking out, so do some homework!

More Radio Awesome

It’s Friday, and I’m back up at school, so that means more action on the radio show! Tune in tonite at 8pm, right here: http://www.skidmore.edu/studentorgs/wspn/

Tonite should be a good one, Besides the usual weird black/drone/doom shit, we’ll have some Sleep, Electric Wizard, Isis and some rare tracks from Kylesa and Torche! It’s going to be a fun one, so listen in!

Things I do in Photoshop

Aside from making lulzy photos like this:
Fuck the Canes

I also occasionally make actual important things. I just finished making a landing page for my Dad’s company using Photoshop Express and a fantastic tutorial I think it came out just dandy but I’m going to probably be searching for a version of Photoshop proper.

More Sleep Shows Announced, More Doom-heads Happy

The universe seems to be trying to forgive itself for a) it being Monday b) it snowing where I am and c) making me miss Sleep’s reunion tour in September. Because recently Sleep has announced that they’re coming back for more this summer! Continue reading ‘More Sleep Shows Announced, More Doom-heads Happy’

The Mars Volta unveil new tunes at SXSW, are better than Rebecca Black


Now this is definitely my 3rd favorite thing to wake up to in the morning. A video has just surfaced of The Mars Volta playing one of four new tunes from their secret show last night in Austin. I love the feel of this song. The relaxed summery verses flow into explosive choruses in a way that hearkens back to their earlier work. The stripped down sound that began on 2009’s Octahedron is still noticeable but I think works well. Here’s hoping Warner Brothers gets the new record to The Mars Volta’s ravenous fans soon.
