Recommendation: Lower Definition

Great great band. They make some jammin' tunes, I advise you to listen to this. Many people say the lead singer Matt Geise sounds like Daryl of Glassjaw, so if you like Glassjaw this might be worth your time. A few months ago, Lower Deezy lost two members, (drummer and bassist, I believe) and the future of the band is pretty uncertain. They released two Ep's (the first one is from like '03, and I can't find it ANYWHERE, not even to download.) They released another EP in 2007 and a full length last year.

Recommended If You LikeGlassjaw, Dance Gavin Dance, fucking awesome music


The Ventriloquist



LyricsWe hide behind the gates. It's daylight when they come. Afraid to test what we've done. Tamed by the fire, they hang on a wire. Tonight, they'll have you bandaged round the eyes. Tonight, they watch from the sides.

They sing familiar cries. From the sides they watch with closed minds and breathe on every line with impeccable time. They watch from the sides.

They know we can see right through fingers broken and bruised. They speak with frail sighs. And their throats are dry and ravished of greatness.

They open their arms with jaws of life. They're bandaged, bandaged round the eyes and all I can hear are the cries. It haunts me at times.

While animatronic puppets sing stupid lullabies.

Afraid to test what we've done when they come. Shunned by the light. In awe, they know we can see right through fingers broken and bruised and books deprived and ravished of pages. They're all filled with lies. I feel neglected. Bandaged round the eyes.

You do things to me. You do this to me. You pull the strings. It haunts me at times.



Her Last Winter



LyricsAs the trigger tip toed close behind her back, her heart pumped faster as the sweat rolled down her neck. She waits. And now, theyre coming faster through her dreams. And now, you wish you'd never left me. They wanna watch you scream. These twisted dreams are so pristine. They'll sneak into your dreams and take you for everything you never really had.

I lost my beat in a sea of shapes and sounds and I lost my mind in the color of your eyes. Bury me? Bury you beneath our first kiss and in those twisted dreams is where you'll finally rest.

We plead for mercy. Your fingers point like knives thrown across the room. And as she gives a blank stare in the midst of the storm, her heart starts pouring from her wrists.

With these IVs deep inside my skin, Ill do this with a grin and happily Ill state, "its the only way." Don't you cry anymore, as the weather grows colder and we shatter like glass of an influenced hand with the red pouring chest on the ivory where I rest. Its a mess and Im swept away with your breath.

I lost my beat in a sea of shapes and sounds and I lost my mind in the color of your eyes. Bury me? Bury you beneath our first kiss and in those twisted dreams is where you'll find me choking on all of the things I should have said to you, I should have done to you


And there ya go!

Dance Gavin Dance - Happiness

01) Self-Trepanation
02) Tree Village
03) NASA
04) I'm Down with Brown Town
05) Carl Barker
06) Happiness
07) Strawberry Swisher Pt. 1
08) Don't Tell Dave
09) Strawberry Swisher Pt. 2
10) Power to the People



June 9th

Holy shit am I excited. "Tree Village" is a fucking osm song, and the 6 instrumentals they leaked are incredible. It sucks there's only ten songs though, but whaddya gonna do. More 2 part songs, also. Those are always cool. I know this band gets a lot of shit here on AP, but if you've never listened to them, give 'em a chance. They have arguably the best instrumentals of any band in their genre, and one of the best singers. I will back up this band harder than any other.


In other news, I'm listening to some Lower Deezy right now. I really wish they'd come out with another album, Matt Geise is a fucking beast.

I did it.
04/25/09 at 08:32 PM by circatbs
I changed the title of my bloggggggg. How did I do this, may you ask? I'm a super human being that can do whatever the fuck he wants, that's how.

The title speaks the truth, don't even try to deny it.

First Impressions: TDWP - With Roots Above And Branches Below
04/24/09 at 08:45 PM by circatbs
Damn good based on first listen. Mike's screaming is harsher, more intense, and Jeremy's singing sounds like it has improved. The instrumentation is also better, and I would have to say it's less generic than everything they've done. I can see this - with more listens - being the best album they've released.

Whoever made this banner:



.....does not know how to proofread. Sorry, bud, but "vinyls" is not a word. And, to add to the mistake, there is not even any TDWP vinyl to be purchased. Way to go.

I am, however, stoked for the new song at midnight.

I'm gonna write these reviews this week:

A Girl A Gun A Ghost - Through The Eyes Of Ahab

I See Stars - 3D

Holding Onto Hope - This Love You Seek

Greeley Estates - Far From The Lies

....and maybe something by Bedlight for Blueeyes

Then of course I'll blog up whatever the fuck I'm doing friday night. I wanna get all these done before that. Friday night's is a surprise, but it's something I've blogged about before......

Also, I'm nearing 100 blog comments which is pretty cool. I've got 93 now, so comment the fuck out of this!

And my Five Minute Ride review from 2 fridays ago got posted. That EP is highly recommended.

Golden Corral
04/20/09 at 12:48 PM by circatbs
....is one of the best restaurants I've ever been to. The first one in all of New England (that I know of) just opened up about two weeks ago in the city next to mine. I'm leaving in about a half hour to go there for the first time in 3 or 4 years. I've only been one time and that was when I was in Florida on vacation.

I'm sure people who live in the south will back me up on how awesome this place is.

They're gonna have to cut me out of the booth and take me out of this place on a forklift.

Recommendation: Holding Onto Hope
04/19/09 at 07:24 PM by circatbs
Holding Onto Hope is a band that you need to know. If you don't, then surely there is something wrong. HOH is one of the best, if not the best band I have discovered in the past 6 months. They play vocal driven post hardcore music that is better than all of the crap flooding the scene lately. Great image, great message, all around great dudes and great band. Long story short: When these guys become huge in a short while, you'll be able to say "Man, I've loved those dudes from the beginning."

Bridges



LyricsWell look at you now
You've got the world under your belt
When will it change.

You'll never come home again

How long has it been since your last confession?
How long have you had to make your last transgression?

Boats set sail the bridges burn down
Down! Burn Down

The boats set sail
The Bridges Burn Down
The Boat has set sail, all the bridges have burnt down
There is nowhere to go, nowhere to go but down



Between Failure And Fraud



LyricsSo Speak
I hear the words, I look away.
I hear your words, I turn and say.
Read My Lips
Iím done with it.
Read My Lips
Iím done with this.
Iím not as good as you think
Not as bad as you believe
There are better things
There are worse things
How can I look you in the eyes?
Then repeat, repeat!
Where is truth behind a lying tongue?
How can grace come to a failing one?
I wonder aroundÖaimlessly searching
But all that Iíve found is nothing is working.
You told me again, and over again.
But I wonít hear you, Iíll find my own way.

Read the lines between the lines
See the life behind these eyes.
Weíre all seeing through the lies your leading.
You are sinking in the ship your keeping.
You give me everything, I give you nothing in return
You give me everything, I give you nothing

I know and you know, Iím a Failure, Iím a Fraud.
Leave me to drown.


I have never seen a negative comment about this band. Which makes sense because there isn't any reason for there to be a negative comment. Expect a review written by me, for their debut EP released in 2008, entitled This Love You Seek. AP.net user Klatzke also wrote a great review on their second EP, Of The Sea which can be read here.
