Good Moon: Still Delightful
A little indie pop/folk/rock album release! My friend Molly & I have founded a little quarantine band called Good Moon, and just released our pandemic project - an EP album of original songs, called Still Delightful. A little bit Lake Street Dive meets a little bit Sara Bareilles, maybe? Would love for you to check it out!
Bizarrely, and for reasons too long and dull to explain, I’ve released an album of odd rock guitar instrumentals under the pseudonym Trey Fontaine. [more inside]

Dr Poopy's Medicinal Jam is a weekly live stream of live music, running every Tuesday evening from 7.30pm to 9.30pm UK time. Vibe leans generally towards acoustica / Americana but you never know. [more inside]
New Album by Heartmath: "All the light"
Faced with the bitter end of a treasured relationship, composer Heartmath was heavy with grief, lost, unmoored. Since energy can neither be destroyed nor created, only transformed from one state to another, he chose to pour his feelings into "All the light", recorded as a paean, a tribute, to honor his cherished experience and the woman he shared it with.

Jingle Rock Bell music video
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]

Pearl Jam allows fans to record concerts for noncommercial use under its open taping policy. pjsho.ws aggregates concert recordings from the taping community as well as official recordings that Pearl Jam has authorized for trade – about 350 so far – and packages them as high-quality mp3 torrents.

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]
Slime Tapes #2
Slime Tapes #2 is the first demo from my garage-punk band, Brain Zaps. If you like noisy songs about slime, dinosaurs, and food you'll like us.
Blind Carbon Copy
A new album about love, heartbreak, fractals, and the crystalline moss of self-replicators that blankets this planet. [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.
Life For Life
Last year I was asked to help Seattle band Klover Jane make a music video. [more inside]
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]
"World Made of Words"
Words and music by Eef Barzelay of Clem Snide. Video by me. [more inside]
The Awesome Boys- Voytek EP
I made a solo EP with the imaginary band in my head. 6 songs, rock with some weird noise elements. Subject matter includes life advice, bears pressed into the Polish army, discussing bum trouble with pets, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, and a Clash cover. Free streaming and downloads!
Content Content a new album by The Celebrated Workingman. (FREE)
My band is releasing our latest record for free on bandcamp today (for a limited time only!)
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.

First mentioned here, we have posted our 7 track album to bandcamp. [more inside]
