The Reptilian

You know that scene in Back to the Future, when the guitarist, whom hand was broken, was watching Fox shred on Johny be Good, called his manager and said, "You know that new sound you've been lookin' for? Well listen to this!". That's exactly how I feel around these times.  

I'm sure all of you who read this blog have listened to Native. Well, this band is another band emerging that encompasses this sound.  

... I'll try explaining it again. Twiddly guitar, intricate bass lines, dancy melodies, aggressive shouting type vocals with lots of revurb, all wrapped up in a genre that we all can agree is hardcore. So, yes, there are also gang vocals.  

If that description was wrong or compeltely turned you off, go fuck yourself. I didn't want to do it in the first place. This whole blog thing is for you anyway. So download this four-song EP, which is completely new and has not been released yet, and support the band.  

Again, if you loved Native, this band will make you feel the same way. And you better support them! Buy their shit, make comments on their myspace, go to their shows, learn their lyrics and make a fool of yourself. Bands like this don't come around too often.

Rockets Red Glare

Here is an awesome, completely under-rated band from Canada.  
They only lasted a couple years, and have been broken up since 03'.

If you like My Disco! and Young Widows (which you better), then you should like these guys as well.  One of the better bands that have existed that create this type of music.


Lots of bands copy off these dudes.  If you liked my earlier blog on Medications, then you should like this one as well.  One of the earlier indie/rock/math/whatever bands that I don't get bored with.


Anthology 1997-98


Maura Davis. MAURA DAVIS!

You all know Denali, I'm sure. This is an EP from her other band, which was released in 06'. The last track is crazy fucking good.
