I’ve been falling off lately

I hit a wall for a while.  Just didn’t have much to blog about.  To my loyal readers (all 5 of you), I apologize.

Here are some suggestions for your listening pleasure:

1. The Flatliners.  My friend Mike told me about these guys last week.  I downloaded their album Cavalcade and I couldn’t get the song “Filthy Habits” out of my head all week.  I sacked up and bought the vinyl on Saturday.  The album artwork is gorgeous so I’m looking forward to getting that in the mail.  I can’t wait to see this band live in the near future.

2. Sinking Ship Records.  My friends Jon and Charlie and I are attempting to start a record label.  The first project we’re working on involves A Great Big Pile of Leaves.  Really hoping things work out because their new album is unbelievable.  If you want to stay updated on that project – you can follow us on Twitter and “Like” us on Facebook.

3. My roommate Jon and I can’t stop listening to Katy Perry’s “Teenage Dream”.  It’s becoming a problem.  I may or may not have spent part of Saturday evening trying to record a guitar cover of the song (I can’t help it.  My new fuzz pedal is the perfect effect for the chorus).

4. Two record labels that are blowing my mind lately are No Sleep and Run For Cover.  They’re consistently putting out great music.  No Sleep just released The Frontier(s) album There Will Be No Miracles Here which has been sharing time with the latest Run For Cover release, Hostage Calm‘s s/t album, on my iPod.  Indie labels do an inherently better job than major labels when it comes to branding themselves – and these two relative newcomers are dominating right now.
