  1. I have been pretty bad at responding to messages over the past few months, but I'm home now (like everyone else), so if you see something you want shoot me a note. Corona bump.
  2. New Wake album, "Devouring Ruin" out today. Just finished my first run-through and it's pretty incredible. Think Abigail Williams meets Converge.
  3. Matching each variant with a different artwork is so cool. Grabbed the cc exclusive last night but kinda wish I'd gotten the good fight monochrome -- that's gonna look awesome.
  4. Didn't Arctic Drones close up shop last summer? Might have even been before that. It was definitely the best post-rock/instrumental blog out there. No idea what happened but they just stopped posting and it looks like the website is public domain now. I mostly just browse the relevant tags on Bandcamp and the wherepostrockdwells YouTube for new stuff. Heavy Blog is Heavy is probably my favorite online music review/blog site. @dawhizz
  5. Finished making my AOTY list yesterday. Here's my top 15: 1. Abigail Williams - Walk Beyond the Dark 2. Thornhill - The Dark Pool 3. Old Solar - See 4. Olam - I Will Guide Thy Hand 5.

Cranial - Alternate Endings
  6. Received mine on Saturday. Yeah this was expensive but that triple gatefold is so clean, it was worth it. Looking forward to cranking this one loud later today. Thanks again, Derek. You've got some positive feedback coming your way.
  7. Pretty sure Don mentioned this one to me a loooong time ago. I could have him mistaken for someone else, but this cover art looks very familiar. Both the new Pray for Sound and Kokomo albums are first-class. I love the energy in Waves, especially the last two songs.
  8. Nowhere else to post this, but I had one of the best music listening days of my life today. I have two big papers to crank out this week so I put on the following, in order, over a ten-hour period: La Dispute - Rooms of the House Touche Amore - PTSBBAM My Epic - Behold My Epic - Yet Hrvrd - From the Bird's Cage Copeland - Ixora Lydia - Paint it Golden Foxing - the Albatross mewithoutYou - Catch for Us the Foxes mewithoutYou - Brother, Sister As Cities Burn - Come Now Sleep Can I get some recs? Looking for more stuff in the vein of Lydia, Hrvrd, and My Epic. Honestly my goal was/is to check off a bunch of the indie rock classics so I'll take anything in that vein. Haven't listened to Science Fiction yet so I've got that, TREOS, and Manchester Orchestra queued up for tomorrow.
  9. New album by the Shaking Sensations is very good, as expected. Anyone else give it a listen yet?
  10. That shipping cost is brutal. Too late now, I suppose. I’m sure I won’t mind as much when I have it in-hand but I cringed inwardly as I was adding up the totals.
