Band / Artist: P.O.S
Year: 2013
Genre: Punk-Rap, Electro, Rap Rock, Remixes, Alternative Hip-Hop

My Review:
SO GOOD. I love good punk rap, expecially great remixes of good punk rap. I'm really bouncing my head to this. So, Marijuana Death Sqauds made a remix from P.O.S's album, We Don't Even Live Here.

P.O.S describes the album by saying, "WDELH/MDS/RMX is We Don't Even Live Here, remixed and re-imagined by my dancy, noise band Marijuana Deathsquads.”

Here is a link to Marijuana Death Squads.

Here is a link to the We Don't Even Live Here album.

And here is a link to P.O.S

Anyway, If you enjoyed Run The Jewels / Meow The Jewels, then this one will be right up your alley. I'm gonna say something that'd start a firestorm over at pitchfork, but these guys and the kind of music they are putting out is what I think of as the prime styles of aggressive punk-rap. I'd rather one album from them, than ten by Death Grips. Not to talk smack, but the mixing of power and groove is a big part of it, for me at least.

Alright. I have little more to say, Just go take a listen and have fun.



Uncle Neptune - In a Perfect World

Band / Artist: Uncle Neptune
Year: 2003

My Review:
This is the bubbliest music I think I may have ever heard. This guy must be either really sad, or the happiest person you've ever met in your life. His name is Jamie Ward. He's talented, and interesting enough to take a good look at.

Here is his bandcamp and facebook pages,

Its listed as a genre called Tin Pan Alley. I have no idea what that means. It all sounds like pleasant little ditties with lots of acoustic guitar, that makes you kinda do that thing where you rock your feet on your heel to the beat of a song. It has a lot of finishing to it as well, for something that sounds so out of the norm.

...OH. Tin Pan Alley is some kind of old music genre from the late 1800s to early 1900s. It's really odd to hear at start, but is really good. lots of styles are being pulled together into this old-timey sound, that he seems to control very well. It also lends itself to his voice very well.

And thats not all. This album has a MASSIVE list of contributors. Seriously, here. Look at this.

Uncle Neptune - Vocals, Kazoo
Jeff Silver - Banjo, Ukelele, backup vocals, percussion
Jean Bean - Vocals, Backup vocals
Robbie Grunwald - Piano
Steve Mensher - Drums
Jonno Lightstone - Clarinet
Dave Lum - Tuba
Earl Lapierre - Steel drums
Brett Higgins - Bass
Rupert Price - Trombone
Josh Brown - Trombone
Mike Greco - Trumpet
Ari Dasgupta - Clarinet
Marc Silver - Piano
Moira Nelson - Harp, Vocals
Andy Frost - Lap steel

Anyway, if you have kids, this stuff would be great for them. If you dig it, you should backsearch, because there are 2 more albums from this guy on the same netlabel.

Run The Jewels - Run the Jewels 2 / Meow The Jewels

Band / Artist: Run the Jewels
Year: 2015
Genre: Punk-Rap, Rap, Alternative Hip-Hop, Experimental, Cat Music

My Review:
These are fun, and not what I was expecting to bump into when I was like "fuck it, I have to get back to jumbly". So the music is coming from Killer Mike and El-P. I am really loving this shit, but it might not be available for a long time, but its hard to know.

Anyway, Run The Jewels 2 is available from here, listed as meow the jewels on the downloads part. I assume it was an easter egg, but if it wasn't I'd imagine that it will be gone swiftly.

Run The Jewels - Run The Jewels 2

And the most ridiculous remix album ever, which still rocks like crazy. MEOW THE JEWELS, the cat sampled/themed remix album, which I'm starting to think that I like MORE than the original. Its so much fun.

Just go download these now, and get out of here, go lay in a field or something. I'll try to get this to be regular again. I know, I suck. Maybe soon I'll be getting my groove back, and I can go hang with Stella.


In Virgo - Self Titled

Band / Artist: In Virgo
Year: 2015
Genre: Alternative Metal, Industrial Rock, Electronic Rock

My Review:
Back in college I used to make music with one of the members of the band. We liked making noises in the sound booth, and worked together the first half of a cover of Death by Skinny Puppy. I wish we had finished that. It was a lot of fun.

So here is the band lineup, super minimal.
Vocals: Chris Hodges
Guitar and Synth: Chris Egert (Yo!)

So, the album has reeeealy good studio quality. Overall, it has a good presence. I do find while listening to it though,.  I can't shake this feeling of hearing parts of it in songs before on the radio. I mean, its a great debut album. I would love to hear how they grow into themselves. It just has this 2000-ish Industrial-rock radio setup. Evanescence-like in parts, Linkin Park-ish others. They piece a lot of differrent references into one album, but i cant put my finger on the names of a lot of the artists i keep hearing in it.

I'll keep an eye open for where they go, because its really solid for a start up. The fact that they are building up this much sound with 2 guys, I'd like to see how they do that live.

Arcade Island - Spring EP

Band / Artist: Arcade Island
Year: 2012
Genre: Alternative Rock, Chillwave, Lo-fi, Alternative Pop

My Review:
So this one.. I bet i could have heard songs from this one on the radio about 5 years ago, over and over and over, and i would have hated it, because it would be burned into my head.

Its a one man band, which makes it more impressive, though I guess its less impressive now that the music can be made digitally... I mean, whatever, its good.

This is what he says about this album.
A blending of Electronica and Rock, the album is a collection of works from the past few months. Lots of ambient synths and guitars, big drums with rock bass lines, and with catchy vocals and accessible lyrics ranging from alien abduction to unrequited love. 
Arcade Island started in 2006 in Pennsylvania out of curiosity by Alex Bew, a 21-year-old self-proclaimed nerd with "too much time on his hands". "I don't like making music in just one genre, and I don't like people telling me what to do, so I'll make whatever kind of music I want. Not even Abraham Lincoln can stop me. Although he could probably do a good job of it with his vampire skills and all."

Their Facebook is here.

If you like some of that 2008-2011ish electronic 80's influcenced emo pop.. whatever the hell you'd call it. You should check this out, I dig this one, and some more I've found from him as well. It's well polished.

Arcade Island - Spring EP

I also want to share the bonus album, Youth in Decay. Its obvious that he's gonna evolve a lot. I like this one more.

ʕӨ͛ʘʡ ϣë¡ɍɗʏ ɱɄ$ÏƇ ʢθͺθʔ Noah Wall - Live At Guitar Center

Band / Artist: Noah Wall
Year: 2015
Genre: Field Recordings

My Review:
Its the most ridiculous jam sessions on earth. He did field recordings, at guitar center, so its everything you'd expect it to be. Bad guitar twiddling, some moments of really pretty sounds, lots of strange mixes of sound.

These are more just for fun and a way to kick off my monthly special; Weirdy Music. Basically, one out of every months posts will be something thats out of the ordinary for what would get posted here. Its going to be speedcore, sludge metal, drone, field recordings, just the odd bits of internet that I find in my everyday. I may get bored with the current title separator, but for now its what I have.

Alright, Thats whats what. Enjoy.

Cullah - Cullah The Wild

Band / Artist: Cullah
Year: 2015
Genre: Blues Rock, Psych-Rock, Jam, Alternative rock, Jazz Rock, Hip-Hop

My Review:
Dammmmn.. I dig the hell out of this. It rolls with a great punchy rhythm, and when he pushes his voice, I swear I can hear some early Chris Cornell. Its pretty badass.

So this guy is a sleeper hit. Great quality, and I have NO idea how he never got a following. Its just too good to not see a lot of wonder in how the hell you don't hear something like this on the radio.

SO his name is Ian McCullough, and he's an artist out of Wisconsin (honestly, this guy and cheese seem like what Wisconsin has going for it.)

His website is here.

He's a talented youngin', and I hope I hear more about the guy, because its worth the listen.

I'M NOT DEAD Kirastas - Iru Hanum

I will be reviving things as this week clears up, Sorry about the hiatus.

For the moment, enjoy this post. Some great prog rock.



Brain Pyramid - Magic Carpet Ride

Band / Artist: Brain Pyramid
Year: 2013
Genre: Psych-Rock, Stoner Rock, Jam

My Review:
Loud and raucus, Looping and dragging, Its a lot of different things, all of which I'd fairly describe as Stoner Rock the the fullest degree.

They bring out some really good twangy guitar in "Mary Jane Blues" which I was really enjoying the southerly sound of.  They are on the Acid Cosmonaut Records label, and as you'd imagine, its filled with more jam band rock goodness if that's your thing.

Alright, I've got to cut this one there, lots to do. FILE YOUR TAXES.
