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.
02) Tree Village
04) I'm Down with Brown Town
05) Carl Barker
07) Strawberry Swisher Pt. 1
08) Don't Tell Dave
09) Strawberry Swisher Pt. 2
10) Power to the People
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.
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.
....I made that blog entry about the month of June? Well, June is now a whole lot fucking better.

....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.
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."
Between Failure And Fraud
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.
Starting today is spring break for me, so expect a few album reviews this week. I have like 10 days off or something, and my goal is to do 5 reviews. Let's hope I stop being such a lazy fucker and do it.
