Towering Trees' "Proto"


a voice in the distance that sounds like a less arrogant julian casablancas mated with a less moping morrissey is singing some pure popping rock&roll from minnesota via portland. here's the last EP of a sunny summer that I, for one, could deal with holding onto for another couple weeks. after that, yeah, welcome autumn, welcome winter, whatever... just give me one more week. i'll take off work. i'll stay outside.

william carpenter and his towering trees have been putting out music for quite some time. will was a bright-eyed, bushy-haired freshman that i met when i tried to go to college one time (no, not that time...the first time). joe P recorded an EP with him in flemington NJ and we've hosted it and some other of his recordings on tamur in the past... the album links are broken turns out. probably because i haven't paid for web hosting in a couple months. BUT THANK GOD FOR BANDCAMP... maybe his back catalogue will show up on there. until then, enjoy the new one. bring it outside with you, get a whiff of the flowers before they die, enjoy it.

every bunny welcome times nine


every bunny welcome is now ShitSleeper. i just uploaded all of the EBW back catalogue from the early to late 2000's so we can 'quarantine the past' as they say (but not in a greatest hits kind of way... because that just doesn't seem right) and get on the good foot for the tens and teens.

dead birds

nostalgia much? pretty much every recording by both bands is up for free stream and download.

Huge Fucking Pupils

huge pupils are a duo from north jersey who are just about as sick of treading the hipster hellhole that is brooklyn (spreading further and further from williamsburg) as any other jersey musicians/bands i know. they're putting on a show in Ridgewood on Saturday, Oct 23rd with Chinstraps, Huge Pupils (obviously), Haunted Houses, Alien Father (hey, i'm in that!), Zingtone Cowboy, Seeking the Seeker, and 2 Late 4 Never. it's in a church. it's gonna be gnarly. yeah. GNARLY. here's the FB event link (get there.)

the Timid Roosevelts and All Over

are both on bandcamp now:

that's a demo i recorded with them way back in the day up at 1331... it's only gonna get better from here on out (& from what EYE herd, they're working on a new one which is good... this one's aging, like us all)


all over number three will be two songs from (the angry young) THEM plus an original by myself (as per the pattern). there are also two instrumental versions of "whole lotta shakin' in my heart (since i met you)" for minimum $1,000 download EACH. yeah. that's right. one-thousand dollars. or you could just download/stream the EPs for free.

10 records from Pound Puppy

if you click here
, you'll see the album covers in chronological order, but newest first, left to right, top to bottom... fun shit, right?

that's more than 6 years of retardedly-bored mostly-useless solo recording efforts right there.

two (?) excellent shticks (two for the hipsters)

remember ima robot? 2006 or something?

here's the singer now (as of 2010 anyway):

"Birthed by Mouth in the year two-thousand and five, young Edward Sharpe had to wait nearly two years before he was to grow his arms and legs and fingers and toes. Immaculately conceived, his father (a Robot who had magically become a real boy…but that’s another story) declared his undying devotion to the creature. He perched the fleshy bust upon a teetering pedestal fashioned from stacked cereal boxes and positioned the display at his window for all the town to see. Young Edward soon proved no ordinary boy."

new p_nk! (“pervasive ambivalence toward self and society,”)

check out THIS article.

Sam Gurry

one half of the noise & video outfit Good Time Island (the other half being Keith, curator and rent-payer at the Basement Gallery) makes videos worthy of a meditation or a half-dream (or in the case of some Good Time Island moments, pure uncomfortable nightmares)

here's two, one for Sky Stadium (catch em at the basement gallery) and one for Philip Seymour Hoffman (the music, not the man... but what a great man he is)
