I'd appreciate it a bunch to whoever checks out my band Ivy Dye's sample song under the samplers/compilations/demos section.

Spencer Control 04/27/12 07:26 AM

Checking out No Place for Heroes. An RIYL of System of a Down is just too intriguing to pass up.

246toothpicks 04/27/12 07:41 AM

Really liking The Wandering Tree EP

uofmhockey07 04/27/12 07:48 AM

sjb2k1 04/27/12 07:54 AM

Check out Barely Blind!
FREE download of their album Wilder Child of a Thousand Suns

Moranes 04/27/12 08:53 AM

The single "Choke 'em Up" by Earthquake Lights is DOPE. Really groovin' to it. But I'm also a sucker for the black keys hehe.

drailskid 04/27/12 09:08 AM

Yeah, "Choke 'em Up" is sweet

Everyone check out The Hotshot Freight Train song "Boys from Tennessee" that is listed above. I feel that these guys are highly underrated (after 3 full length albums) and deserve more exposure. They just released "Get Low" a few weeks ago on Future Destination Records.

Haverford's RIYL was too good to pass up. Sounds incredible.

InfiniteArms 04/27/12 05:07 PM
