Thanksgiving - Cave Days And Moments

Happy Thanksgiving, everybody! This festive solo title is given to Adrian Orange who is also a great musician from Portland, Oregon. This album features many genres combined which Adrian draws influence from and though it's a solo act, he collaborates with many other notable artists.

Anyways, Happy Thanksgiving! I just wanted to post this, but I'm running late to some family extravaganza or something so I'll keep this short. Post in the comments something you're thankful for(Just for fun!)

Persona - OST

This may be the closest wandererofys gets to liking one of my uploads. It was him who got me into this series in the first place. There's a lot of variation to the sounds, going between rock numbers to soft piano pieces and even a few techno-ish sounds. The distinct trend with these songs is the combination of dark undertones over lighter overtones, perfectly reflecing the theme of light and darkness in the game.

Boris - Amplifier Worship

I don't want to think about how long it's been since I've posted here. This is my favorite Boris album. It's one of the best Doom albums I've ever listened to. Pink and Akuma No Uta were good, this is simply spectacular.
Oh, and if you're wondering about the frog...
"Frogs love to eat flies, the Devil's name, Beelzebub, lord of the flies. Evil spirits love to spiritually feed upon those whom Beelzebub rules."
- quote from the back insert.

Punkin Pie - Are We Still Friends?

This is a request made by a member of our group of a great pop-punk band from plan-it x similar to the likes of Abe Froman and such. Definitely their second best album to Broke Truck Good Luck Song. Good stuff that sadly recently broke up this summer I think.

Hello Hawk - Teaser Demo

Hello Hawk is a band from Harrisburg, PA that I was fortunate to see live on Halloween at the Lower Paxton Youth Center. I'm so glad I attended, because it was probably the most fun that I've had at a show in a while and not even because it was Halloween. They remind me a lot of Good Luck driven by synths in a pop-punk Zolof The Rock and Roll Destroyer-esque style. They have 2 girls on the roster one on synth and the other being the main vocalist. Enjoy this 3 song teaser demo because it's sadly all I have to listen to of theirs at the moment.

Nana Grizol - For Things That Haven't Come Yet [MP3]

Ok, here is the deal with this. I deleted the full album download and am replacing it with a promo single that I received from Deus Ex Machina Publicity. Check out the single titled "For Things That Haven't Come Yet" and tour dates! Thanks, everybody.

The backing band augments Theo Hilton's book-open vocals and beautiful fingerpicking with a suitably eclectic array of instrumentation. Laura Carter and Robbie Cucchiaro, both formerly of Athens' legendary and notoriously horn-buoyed Neutral Milk Hotel, head up a brass-and-winds section comprised of Laura's celebratory trumpet, Robbie's Baritone Euphonium, a couple clarinets, harmonica, recorder and whatever else you can pack into a touring-trunk and bring along for a blast. Rhythmic backbone comes courtesy of Southern punkrock siren Madeline Adams' bass, Matte Cathcart's drumming and some right-on Fender Rhodes piano provided by Hot New Mexicans' mainman Patrick Jennings.
