    Just discovered the awfully-named but otherwise excellent Kings of Frog Island. Think mid- to late-period Kyuss being done by English guys; now add some slide guitar and a vague obsession with amphibians. Works for me, at least at the moment.
  3.  (4417.3)
    DEATHREAT/ TALK IS POISON split 7" (featuring one of my top five songs of all time, "data void")
    UNRUH-setting fire to sinking ships
    MIKA MIKO-c.y.s.l.a.b.f
    RADIOHEAD-kid a
    THE NOW-ep
    and i think there was some DS 13 in there somewhere

    badass. that AGENTS OF ABHORRENCE record i have been jamming is very D.A. influenced. no bass, high end, faster than christ.

    now that they've been brought up, i'm going to START listenign to DA this week. oh dave witte, your drumming makes my boy parts feel funny.....

    It's okay, I was just listening to Spine of God yesterday. Sometimes you just need some over-the-top sleazy space rock.

    Now I have to go put on some GridLink.

    Envy/Jesu split (of whose existence I learned on this very forum, thank you to whomever brought that up)
    I Can Lick Any Sonofabitch In The House - Put Here To Bleed
    Dark Meat - Universal Indians (the song "Well, Fuck You Then" is fucking awesome)
    Fed By Fiction- We Ate The Apple EP
    Fugazi - 13 Songs
    Holy! Holy! Holy! - S/T
    and, for some reason, The Lawrence Arms - Ghost Stories

    That Envy/Jesu split is one of the best Envy have released. It blows their split with Thursday right out of the water.
  7.  (4417.15)
    and, for some reason, The Lawrence Arms - Ghost Stories

    LAWRENCE ARMS=top 5 bands evar. theres a always a reason to listen to them! its just that 95% of those reasons involve binge drinking....
    • CommentTimeDec 8th 2008
    Needing to slow down a bit, hence:

    Earth - Hibernaculum
    • CommentTimeDec 8th 2008

    Too true, my first band(oh boy am I gonna regret that) when I was 16 (when I was all about binge drinking *ahem* unlike now) pretty much totally copped that "one gruff voice, one pretty voice drunk dudes playing pop punk" vibe to a T, so Ghost Stories and Guided Tour of Chicago are records that really bring me back along with earlier Alkaline Trio, the Broadways, etc.

    I had only heard A Dead Sinking Story so this is a pretty big departure for them for me (if that made any sense) but I am really liking it. Not to mention the Jesu side kicks ass as per usual.

    Check out Insomniac Doze. It's my personal favorite by them and I think showcases their talents in the widest ranges.
