We all went to Panera a week ago and it made me think about why I haven't done that before.
These pictures are pretty good evidence of dumb ass things that are on the walls in panera.
Fuck that place, because their chickens are raised on well oil and goat chuds.
Second pictures are from 3 Ninjas: Strike Back. I can't really explain what the fuck was going on at that point in the movie, probably alien space pimps coming down to fuck with the 3 little "nin-has".
I don't know all the details but....here's most of them.
Heyyyyy we're having a benefit show at Glenn Danzig's House!! You know, all our stuff is getting busted and we need to replace it. Come over on December 4th for fun and a show [it's not a party though! don't you partiers come and try and bring the party because we're not having it!]
we like to have shows! there might be some special guest hosts at the show. maybe. might be. after the show, everyone will have to leave shortly after. as much as we'd like to party, our neighbors get a little peeved and we need to not make them angry so we can continue to do shows.
ALSO, if you're into Factbooks, or whatever the face profile website thing is, here's the event link: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Ocuban/184287777310?ref=nf&v=wall#/event.php?eid=216761928975&ref=ss
Invite yourself and all your friends, lets make this memorable.
Went to a show at The Rabbit Hole tonight on 7th street in Nashville. Thought it would be a strange show because even for a house show the setup was pretty bizarre with the band playing in a dining room and us standing in the kitchen to the left of it and also watching through a door frame in front of the band.
Basically, some of the coolest, most incredibly genuine bands I've met in a while and really one of the best shows I've been to in a while as well. Really eclectic but in the most perfect sense.
Thanks to everyone involved, Kit for being amazing and making us tea, The Pink Castle lofts and recording studios, Helen for her general awesomeness and support of this shit, and everyone who hasn't or has walked out during a DP show.
I know it's been a while since my last update, (like a yesterday), but I've got a few tasty RONS for you this week, continuing with a live set from The Read.
The Read is.....an entity. I really can't say much else about them, but I'm putting this up here also as anticipation for their new hats, which will be released hopefully either later on this year or early next year.
This set is from a show in Chicago at The Grand Manor, and it was quite the show if I do say so myself. NOTE: This was from the summer tour in which The Read played as a three piece with all of their mEmBeRs. Miss these boys a lot.
Also, there are a few songs that they've recorded RON. which I think I neater than skeet.
I know it's been a while since my last update, (like a week), but I've got a few tasty nuggets for you this week, starting with a live set from Till Plains.
Till Plains is.....an entity. I really can't say much else about them, but I'm putting this up here also as anticipation for their upcoming EP, Nails Mountain, which will be released hopefully either later on this year or early next year.
This set is from a show in Chicago at The Grand Manor, and it was quite the show if I do say so myself. NOTE: This was from the summer tour in which Till Plains played as a three piece with Peyton on guitar, Casey on drums, and Erik on bass. Miss these boys a lot.
Also, there are a few live videos of them up on their myspace, which I think I neater than skeet.
Oh, how great Weezer is. Having recently, and in the past, mulled over how great that particular band and there entire being is, I can definitely say that a lot of that mulling was done with Jantiss Rigponch, otherwise known as Max Frecka or Corn Cat.
Today we've got an entire free album download courtesy of Corn Cat himself, entitled TV DREAMS. This album is a serious grab bag of all things really fantastic. Maybe it just hit me at the right time, but it's very good. In a nutshell there are so many different bleeps, bloops, and samples going on at all times that it's really hard to focus on just one thing and very easy to get lost in the music and zone out.
TV DREAMS has everything from odd, dollar-vinyl-bin samples to carefully crafted electronica to nonsensical hiphop poetry slam to spazzy breakbeat freakouts. It really just has it all. Under any normal circumstance I probably would have a lot of trouble sitting down and really digging into a record like this but for whatever reason, (possibly being serious bouts of melody and melodic sensibility throughout the entire record), it just makes sense.
Of course, as with any other record there are tracks that stand out more than others. My personal favorites are... "Crooked" "Catnap" "I Love You" and "Cashflow".
So, check it out, whether you think you're gonna like it or not because chances are, if you exist, there's probably something for you on this album. Thanks to Corn Cat for his generosity.
As this semester gets underway, I've had a little less time than I anticipated to do RMSS, which is OK. I will slowly get back to updating everyday with as much as I can. Later today we will have some incredible new music from Corn Cat, whose work just continues to progress.
In the meantime though...MUSTACHIO ALERT! Apparently this is the world's largest....I don't know if I believe the hype.
So this isn't something I normally do here at RMSS, but two of my favorite people, Helen Van and Kit Canlas are taking over half of a radio show here on local Nashville radio tomorrow night. SO, here's the info::
The show:: Nerd Prom The time:: 10PM - 11PM The station:: 91.1 WRVU Nashville The hosts:: Helen Van & Kit Canlas
The station is only available in Nashville so if you live here then this is for you! If not, go....do something or something.
Both of these girls are working on some fantastic projects with their respective bands that I should hope they will let me post when they're complete.
AH! I played in a band called Diarrhea Planet last night, here in Nashville....it was quite a night.
What this is really about though, is The Sleeping Sea. Personally, I feel like these guys are doing something incredibly unique, in their live show and in their recordings. It would be like if you took.....don't crucify me......Vampire Weekend and made it really good. It'll make sense when you hear it.
Not to mention they're giving it to you for FREE here at RMSS!! Anyways, these guys deserve all of the attention that they're going to be getting in the coming months and the Sun Drips Ep is more than enough evidence of that.
Gorgeous harmonies combined with low key-jangly guitar playing, subtle-but-fitting drum parts, and various other instrumentation, this release and this group is sure to have you head nodding in a completely relaxed state. PERFECT music for end of summer going into fall. For fans of Yo La Tengo/Vampire Weekend/The Radio Dept.
In lieu of some super exciting things I'm working on for RMSS that will take a couple of days, I've asked my own band, The Pinstripes, if they would mind me posting an mp3 for free from our new split 10" EP with the Green Room Rockers. The record is out on Dashiki Clout (Dave from Mustard Plug's label) and is being sold all over the damn place. Personally, I'm very excited about this release because it's our first vinyl release as well as GRR's. This release is also a part of a lot of upcoming shows that we will be selling the records at. You can check out all the details at our myspace link below, but some of the highlights are a weekend stint in September with Mustard Plug, Riot Fest in Chicago with The Aggrolites, Deal's Gone Bad, and a million others, as well as some hometown shows in Cincinnati. The track I'm posting is called "Cool Whip/Hot Sauce" and it's from The Pinstripes side of the record. It will only be up here for about 10 days so get it while you can. WORD!
If you get a chance, go over to Nashville Nights and check it out. It's my friend Joseph's blog that he has been doing for about a year or so. It is incredibly well put together and you will especially dig on it if you're into "dance music with funk sensibilities, stuff that sounds 80s-ish, good indie pop and solid remixes"
FUCK! That name is long, but this band is good. I guess that means long things are.....good? Whatever. Anyways, I've been following this band for the last year or so and they have made incredible strides in their songwriting as well as the arrangements of songs in their musicianship. Simply put, this shit is super catchy and really really well done. I talked to vocalist Stephen Stallings today about donating a track to RMSS for free download and he happily obliged. Go forth and enjoy! 3 out of 5 Rons.
AHA! Hey sports fans. As I’m in a pretty damn good mood this morning, I’m feeling pretty generous. I’m gonna post up for download 3 tracks that I released about a year ago under the name YOUTH. It's super super rough, just as a word to the wise (maybe it's LO-FI!!!!). They’re part of an unreleased EP entitled The Way It Works. And now, they are here for you to enjoy, laugh at, fart on, shit on, whatever. Dig.
This is segment, referred to simply as "Mustachio Alert!" will happen whenever I run across a mustache of particular interest. Be it wild, hideous, perfect, or whatever, that's what this segment is about. Each will come with a picture as well as a short description of the find...
...While perusing the confines of the glorious internet machine today, I found this ABSOLUTELY RIDICULOUS (picture of a) MUSTACHE!
Today we have our first contribution from Black Van called Tape Player. Not only is it our first download-able post, but it is also the first EP from this bedroom project from the mind of Wes Rossler.
Rossler has been doing homemade recordings for a while now but this is his first official release. It was self-released two weeks ago on Wes' SleepSleep Records. As far as I know there is no physical release yet available but I assume that if there is enough demand, one will be put together in the near future. Wes has kindly opted for us to make the EP available for free exclusively through RMSS, so I'd say this is an awesome way to kick things off.
