I figured it might be nice if there were a video for this holiday classic, and thought maybe you'd think so too. [more inside]

AMERICANA : A New Grunge Pop Musical

Radical creative collective Hungry Bitches Productions (who I am super pleased to write for) are currently selling tickets for a three day concert run of our new musical, Americana. It's showing in Theatre Royal Stratford East, London, and to promote the show, we have released a music video (linked above) and a single from the show (on spotify). If you live in London, please have a look and see if you want to come along. If you live elsewhere in the world, please enjoy some cool free music.

Giant 800-track alt/indie-focused 90's playlist in chronological order

This is a behemoth of a playlist I put together, focusing primarily (but not exclusively) on the alt/indie/college side of the 90's experience. It's 800+ tracks, about 55 hours, and features plenty of songs that tend to get overlooked in the "remember these 90's hits?" pieces that pop up from time to time. Not definitive by any means, and extremely subjective, but it's a decent chunk of curated history in one convenient place. Also it's a fully chronological playlist, on a week-by-week level. So a track released on May 7, 1994 will come before a track released on May 14, 1994. Time and research went into this. Think of it as the Boyhood of 90's playlists!

Bluster, by Bluster. My bands first EP is hot off the presses

You can listen for free on BandCamp and of course if so inclined can buy the tracks. We recorded this in our practice space/basement on a laptop, but I think it sounds pretty darned good. Let me know what you think. Thanks! Bonus Bluster Fact: The band met on OkCupid [more inside]

DCTN: shows tonight in washington, dc

It's a website with one purpose: it tells you what shows are happening tonight in Washington, DC. In a big, simple list that works really well on phones. It's also an open source project I just wrote about.

Same Rat, Different Hat

The debut record from Out of System Transfer, a neo-old-timey band who sing punk-influenced folk songs about the assassination of William McKinley, hitting cops in the head with a brick, and riding the subway. Their sound has been compared to the Holy Modal Rounders, Mojo Nixon, and Mischief Brew. With physical media sales becoming less viable, it made little sense to get CDs printed (plus, no one in the band even had a working CD player), but it also felt wrong to forego the great potential offered by album covers and liner notes, not to mention the feeling of having a tangible thing for fans to have. Thus, the record was released as a zine, (also bundled with the download as a pdf) with original artwork commissioned for each song by various Brooklyn-based artists. [more inside]

Comedy Video - More Rock, Less Talk

A comedy video about a Classic Rock radical vs. a Classic Rock moderate. We put a lot of work into it. It's five minutes long, which I realize is on the long side, so thanks for taking a look. [more inside]

The Awesome Boys- Sub Cauda EP

I recorded a 6-song EP through much of 2012. Struggling to define it, I guess I'd come up with "ambitious garage rock." I guess this is music that draws equally from the Flaming Lips and Guided By Voices, maybe? Not really. But that's a start. Lots of guitars and Korg Kaossilator. Songs can be streamed or downloaded at the URL above; if SoundCloud's more your thing, you can stream most of the album (except for a Bowie cover) there.

Brad Sucks - Guess Who's a Mess

I posted some of the early demos for my third record to Metafilter Music and then took forever finishing it. But it's done now! Done and in my past! Pay what you want (including zero dollars) on my website, stream it on Spotify/Rdio or grab it on iTunes, the choice is literally yours.

One Week One Band

does exactly what it says on the tin. Every week, a trusted music blogger writes about their favorite band or one they think deserves more attention. This week, I am turning my attention to a beloved, forgotten Boston band, O Positive. They were my favorite band in middle school.

Prussian Blue E.P.

A new E.P named after the iron-cyanide hue once employed widely as the blue in blueprints which was subsequently commandeered by twin white nationalist preteen starlets who later renounced their views and affirmed a belief in the benefits of cultural diversity and smoking pot. [more inside]

Mice in Cars is a band

In May of 2010, we figured it was time to try to record again. We'd been through a couple lineup changes. And we had Nick's basement and a couple laptops to work on this time. If a year seems like a long time to record five songs, it is. But now we've got choir hand claps, we've got gang vocals, we've got songs about floods and Indiana Jones. Our quiet parts are quieter and the loud parts... the loud parts are as loud as they've ever been. It's called "Burn the Reader."

Dustys Discover Internet!

My band the Dustys have a new website to showcase the songs we've been recording for the past year (instead of touring). We'll be releasing a new video and song every few weeks. We're especially excited about the video for Blueberry, which we shot in Montana with a cast of many!

Bullet in a Quiver

Just self-released my debut LP, Bullet in a Quiver, and thought that fellow MeFites might appreciate it! It's a completely DIY affair, recorded at home in Minneapolis and in the Harvard Lampoon's semi-secret castle headquarters while it was drained of people for spring break. It's a sort of a concept album about cats, hues, prime numbers, alien invasion, and subprime lending, so if you are interested any of those things, however vaguely, by all means, check it out and pass it along! It is free, so ⌘C/⌘V away.
