Misc Grab Bag #1

Bros. and sisses, I can’t believe I haven’t updated since May! Time flew by. I moved, and made a ‘zine, and so on and so forth (btw, working on a new ‘zine right now, called Future Spa – feel free ...

Usurp Synapse

And friends! Three split seven inches. Plus one compilation seven inch. I’m sure that all of the songs in this post can be downloaded elsewhere… but, first off, fact: I tend to transfer the musi...

The Great Age of Enlightenment?

This was going be another “Comps!” post. But then after transferring the other comp (the Placebo comp) I discovered that I already had it on my computer, because I’d downloaded it elsewhere. I was ...

Nate Cuellar’s High School Reggae Mixtape

Lewistown

I think I got this Lewistown seven inch because I reviewed it. I dug it because of the nice and vaguely-melodic slugfuzzed guitars, and the snappy snare (tag line on the record: “Spr...

Meadowlark

You may remember that earlier I posted the Meadowlark/Slave One split 12″. The Meadowlark stuff on that split is pretty good, but so far I’ve had some trouble getting into it. This seven inch that’...

Ex-Ignota

Here are two seven inches by Ex-Ignota. They were from the greater Santa Barbara area, and back when I was a high school student in Santa Barbara during the mid-90s, I caught a bunch of their shows...

Founded 2005. Over the years I've posted writing, comics, ringtones, and stuff about maps, bikes, programming, pinball. And I had a robust music blog mostly about '90s hardcore punk (category = music).
