Only listened to a couple of things properly so far, but Countless Thousands, Shambles and Next Stop Atlanta are all well worth checking out.

InfiniteArms 01/20/12 01:29 AM


RIYL: Thrice, Poison The Well, Thursday, City & Colour

Poison The Well AND City & Colour? So it's an acoustic Hardcore act?

the yellowbirddd record is solid. i've had it for a few months now and it comes highly recommended.

farrrell504 01/20/12 06:34 AM

thanks guys for putting us on here!

Alex DiVincenzo 01/20/12 06:38 AM

Shambles are good. Need to listen to a bunch more.

CatsAyeRecords 01/20/12 06:46 AM

Cheers for the mention Andy.

Huts 01/20/12 07:06 AM

Hey. I'm Jeremy from Shambles. Thanks AP.net for putting us on here AND I just wanted to post a link to another way to download our music, in case our free bandcamp downloads run out (We're super siked that this is a problem!).


DEFINITELY check out 1039 while you're in here.

Physhmunkie 01/20/12 07:35 AM

Thanks for the mention! :D

Breakthrough Frequencies - "Proper Wolf" (Demo version)
RIYL: Brand New, Balance and Composure, Minus the Bear

Spencer Control 01/20/12 08:03 AM

Checking out The Chaos Is Coming...

DavidTCIC 01/20/12 08:03 AM

Hope you like our band, The Chaos is Coming!
I'm interested in hear what you think about our music.
Thanks to all, especially to AbsolutePunk for giving us this incredible chance!
Enjoy it!

NotebookMusic 01/20/12 08:06 AM

Much respect to Andy for posting the E.P.
I hope you all enjoy.

- Notebook.

DavidTCIC 01/20/12 08:24 AM

BTW, i'm so surprised that no one else noticed that The Danger O's album is fucking sick.

danredgate 01/20/12 08:41 AM

Hope y'all enjoy our EP,

Pigeons In Motion

panicbxmb 01/20/12 08:55 AM

Thanks for posting our demo. I'm Dan from The Safest Place on Earth. I hope everyone enjoys what we've got so far. Full length coming in a few months, if all goes according to plan. :)

I noticed. :) Those guys are easily my favorite band from my area. Everything they make is worth your time.

whispered east 01/20/12 09:59 AM

I know that I've seen Yellowbirddd on here all the time, but this is either the first one I've been impressed by or the first time I was paying enough attention. Super good... will have to revisit some of his other stuff. Haha.

MADSTA 01/20/12 10:04 AM

That yellowbirddd stuff sounds nice as hell.

LifeDownHere 01/20/12 11:10 AM

Here is our video for "All That You Are"! Hope you like it!

callforswarley 01/20/12 12:06 PM

Next Stop Atlanta is like We Are The In Crowd, but definitely crunchier.

LightSky182 01/20/12 12:42 PM

High and Dry by Head Above Water is catchy as a motherfuck. Next Stop Atlanta's EP is pretty rad as well

PHI Flyers10 01/20/12 01:40 PM

I'm inclined to check out I Am Carpenter but I don't know if I want to because of that absolutely horrible band name. Too cliche.

sjb2k1 01/20/12 02:57 PM

Really digging yellowbirddd

_veges_ 01/20/12 03:00 PM

So much good stuff this week

EDIT: I really want to download shambles' ep, but the mediafire link doesn't work for my mac, and I guess the free bandcamp downloads are out :-(

Huts 01/20/12 04:57 PM

What's the mediafire link doing that isn't working? Is it downloading but not playing? It should just be mp3s. I can try to send you the EP in whatever format you want!

Edit: changed the mediafire link to be a .zip download: http://www.mediafire.com/?bzlbi5cq1jl9o3a

algae 01/20/12 08:28 PM

yellowbirdd is like perfect for cold weather.

ashley916 01/21/12 07:05 AM

Shambles is really good. Pretty stoked that they are from mass (local-ish). Usually when I find new bands to listen to, they only play shows on the other side of the world. I hope to see these guys live sometime soon.

Huts 01/21/12 04:42 PM

Thanks Ashley. We've got some cool shows in the works for February. I'll be sure to let you know!

panicbxmb 01/22/12 10:42 PM

This is Dan from Safest Place on Earth again. I see some people downloaded our demo. Thanks! I hope you guys and gals enjoyed it. Newer better quality stuff should be available in a few months.

Here's our video for our song "The Prize Fight" too:

Thanks for listening :)

disconnectjohn 01/24/12 08:45 AM

Hey guys, did anyone check out the 7YearsBadLuck album? Feedback would definitely be appreciated. Was aware a couple tracks corrupted a bit right near the end - have reuploaded and all's good now!

dave rockstar 01/26/12 12:02 AM

thanks so much for the mention!
