“Rogue Machine” by The Daylights

The Daylights by The Daylights was released September 21, 2010. Distribution of this record is completely by word of mouth as it was made in London independently. I saw these guys in Austin back in March at SXSW as part of SHIROCK’s “Everything Burns” showcase. Great guys! Great music!

“Turn The Dirt Over” by Sea Wolf

Awesome! I love Sea Wolf! “Turn The Dirt Over” is off the White Water, White Bloom album from back in December of 2009. The simple live video below was made in honor of the Turn the Dirt Over single featuring “Where The Wind Blows”, and a remix by Broken Social Scene’s Brendan Canning. The single is out now via Dangerbird Records and at the upcoming solo acoustic tour.


“Aluminum and Light” by Blunt Mechanic

Exerpt from Barsuk Records:

Ben Barnett is a musician who has, all his life, documented experiences through song. After releasing eight albums, six singles and five splits as Kind of Like Spitting over the course of a decade, retiring the moniker and reinventing himself as Music Director of Seattle’s Paul Green School of Rock, Barnett has now emerged triumphant with a new band, Blunt Mechanic, and said band’s debut full-length, world record. Both band and album tip heavy on the riffaged hooks and light on the darkness; big on the thumbs up — no time for the thumbs down. It is far from hyperbolic to enthusiastically assert that this album is Barnett’s finest work to date, and that he has created the culmination of his musical and personal explorations in a way that is powerful, relatable, inspirational, ineffable and communicable, and there’s just no stopping that kind of force.

It’s time, folks, to strap on those headphones and jam the jams. Feel it.
