    Black Clouds was so freaking good. Just listened to both of their albums back-to-back and I'm left wondering why it's so hard for bands these days to pick up the slack.
     
    (With all due respect to the good post-rock bands still out there -- there are plenty.)

    I just finally bought the Samuel Jackson Five boxset yesterday and now I see they are doing shows again, what a great match of happenings! Fingers crossed for a new album.

    WTF does that even mean? They didn't like the whole album and just because they aren't some fanboy you feel the need to put them down for an honest OPINION?

    [not an album but] By the End of Tonight.  Was lucky these guys formed near my hometown so I got to see them live a few times.
    They have a split with Tera Melos called Complex Full of Phantoms.

    Oh, they absolutely lurk this thread.  They’re like baby shit; just everywhere, and lodged into the most obscure crevices.  To the point where you’re simply dumbfounded and maybe a little perplexed, if nothing else.

    I won’t stand here & tolerate this pre-PAIN TS slander.  Technicolour Blind is far and away their best imo & honestly one of my favorite shoegaze albums ever.  Gimme the dreamier TS over the more raw sound from Lovesick any day.  Don’t get me wrong I love Pain & like Lovesick but TB is near perfect to me.

    drds89 reacted to Gumbo72203 in A Thousand Arms thread   
    yes all tapes are /33. 

    The poster, as well as the maps that come with the tapes, lead to a secret marketplace where you can use your coins to buy things.  I will say that the packaging of the tapes is your key.  The packaging and the maps go together.  Like, literally together. 

    Turns out, this is likely a bonus track from Babel called Pharmakeia.  It's a single-sided 12" single.  It's very nice.  It's fast.  It's got a lot of parts, and is similar to the Babylon series of songs where it revisits themes from previous songs.  It's good. 

    And per CJ, the packaging for THIS single has more clues to more things, which..... ehhhhh I don't even want to start getting into haha.  There are maps inside the gatefold.  It's crazy.

    I emailed them in late November and they still don't have an ETA. They've apparently been getting a lot of questions about it so it is on their radar.

    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.

    Stop this at once.
    But really, assuming the quality is fine, I’ll be content with white.  Especially if it’s just the first batch that ends up being hand-numbered by some chance.
