ashamed and wet i wept then, because look what i'm reduced to released! [01 Dec 2005|09:34pm]

saintides

check it out. i finished my new extended player and it is now online for download! it's pretty noisey sometimes and pretty poppy at others as an apology. it's 5 songs of creepy sounds, vocal harmonies and self indulgent behavior. download it @ blumrecords.com!




your friend,

the Kevins (know you need a kiss) [04 Nov 2005|05:39pm]

_fanatic
these are the Kevins


the Kevins believe in: double tracked vocals, sushi, panackes, well thought out mixtapes, first base, eskimo kisses, mist, and poignant guitar solos

The Kevins are brothers recorded and helped by their sister. They self-released an album called The Kevins. It is full of sweet, shimmery, romantic, gentle, and kinda sexy pop songs.
The Kevins are the nice guys.

please visit the Kevin's site and/or become their Myspace friend. We sure would appreciate it.

Valiant Death Hurricane Relief Fundraiser

The horrors of Hurricane Katrina have affected hundreds of thousands of people across the United States. It is our belief that the government's response has been totally unacceptable and unfair to those who are still trapped in the city. Among those affected are a good friend and Valiant Death artist Kyle Bravo (solo musician, owner of Hot Iron Press, and author of Making Stuff and Doing Things) who has lost everything in this disaster.

As a result, for the entire month of September, 70% of all money made from Valiant Death sales will be donated to help the victims of Hurricane Katrina. We hope to raise at least $500 to be donated both to the Salvation Army (donations to which more directly help victims than the Red Cross) and directly to our loved ones which have lost everything in this disaster. Now not only can you buy awesome music, zines, and more from us, but you can feel damn good doing it. So, do it!! It goes towards two good causes, supporting independent art and music and helping those who have lost it all in this disaster.

We carry hundreds of independently made zines, books, CDs, records, t-shirts and a lot more.

So, check out our site!

Hm... ponders? [05 Jul 2005|10:25pm]

end_to_begin
[ mood | curious ]

So I have some instruments,
and I'd like to do a solo bit
with me, myself, and my instruments.
But what program will allow me to overlap the tracks,
to sound like a full band?

Do any of you use a program
that you highly recomend?

Thankies ^_^.
Adrian

[ mood | cowabunga-like ]

Hey, I'm new to this community, but not new to the damn fine music that seems to draw you guys together.

I saw Of Montreal last night in Chattanooga at Lamar's; anyone else there? It was orgasmic; although my heart turned a bruise-colored shade of blue at the lack of "Lysergic Bliss" being played, seein as I had a dance for that song all mapped out in my head (...and heart). Regardless, twas damn fine, and I saw some really cool people.

The whole show was really affirming. I go to UTK, and I live in Maryville, so needless to say it's not often you find many people with similar aesthetic appreciations, especially those found in the sweet unadulterated vitality of pop bliss. Anyways, if you haven't seen Of Montreal live, I would recommend it.

I'd love to meet new people so if anyone feels compelled to meet a fucking awesome guy who's really hot and funny and seductive and just all around damn awesome, then well, look no further!

New CD out now from Dead Milkmen guitarist/vocalist Joe Jack Talcum!!

Free mp3s: Get a Car , Tell Me You Miss Me

This release is by far our most cherished project yet. Joe Jack Talcum's Home Recordings collection is 24 tracks spanning 13 years of Talcum's musical career. Best known as the guitarist and vocalist for the band the Dead Milkmen, this CD pays homage to Joe Jack Talcum's solo recordings, while only the tip of the iceberg of Joe Jack's complete music works, it still remains as an important collection of some of Joe's best loved songs. Joe's honest song writing and unique vocal and instrumental styles have clearly developed over the years and this collection serves as a testament to Joe's talent and style, and we release it in hopes of Joe's music being enjoyed by fans new and old.

Joe's personal style transcends genre as the songs on this album range from heartfelt acoustic guitar tunes to songs that are highly reminiscent of Joe's days with the Dead Milkmen. Originally released on home produced cassettes, these songs have been performed over the years by various projects in Philadelphia and have become unforgettable to those who have heard them. This album features the voice and guitar work loved by fans of the Dead Milkmen but explored on a deeper and more personal level. Catchy arrangements of instruments bring to mind the Beatles, Tom Waits, Daniel Johnston and Joe's lyrical style is of course much like the Dead Milkmen.

This is an amazing album of acoustic, punk, and rock music from an amazing musician whose been active in and out of the spotlight for over twenty years.

This CD is available for $8 from from Valiant Death, get it here!

Thanks for supporting DIY music!!

New guy [18 Feb 2005|07:26pm]

llamallama05
Hi, I'm Kurt and I'm new. Until last week I was in the band llamallama with my two oldest kids, and then they quit the band. Can you believe? They muttered something about homework and "freakin' Murry Wilson" whatever that meant.

Anyway, I've put llamallama on the back burner and started a side project called llamaman that consists of me, my Jet King, and a Yamaha QY10. I only buy equipment on the cheap, like in thrift stores or pawn shops. The motto of llamaman is, "It's a good thing you're not a big fat guy or this would be really difficult."

I'll lurk for a while, mostly.
