Today marks the day that the Toadies finally got Feeler Released (digitally & through mailorder). It doesn’t come to stores until August 17th, but today you can purchase it for $6.99 on amazon or through iTunes with a bonus beatles cover for $9.99. Ever since I heard about Feeler I had hoped that one day it would get released, the toadies have without a doubt grown to be one of my absolute favorite 90’s bands. I do have many favorites from the 90’s but they would be in my top 5. So today to celebrate the release of their sophomore album finally getting released I’m posting demos I found through a forum (the toadies forum?) only within the last year, enjoy!

The other day my friend Eric & I made a digital mix that I’ll be posting pretty soon, and we’re going to try and do them like every two weeks. We wanted to do a podcast but I was having problems with recording music and us and since I do all the editing it was just far too frustrating for me to edit. So instead I think we’re going to do digital mixes with vinyl records only. I’ll have that that posted this week.
So until then I have a couple of fun vinyl pieces that I haven’t seen around the net at all, and I swore I used to see the Parentheses EP on the iTunes store or something. So enjoy some exclusive blow remixes & B-sides.
Personal note: I like the parentheses remixes better then any of the ones from the 12” or Poor Aim re-release.

I love demo cassettes, I also love special cassette only albums or eps. I just love something that can make a release more unique. I don’t think that this album gained anything by being on cassette. However, for the time it came out (1996) it didn’t hurt it all that much either, I was definitely still listening to tapes up until 2001 and as much as possible beyond that. So this is a full length album only released on cassette from Baltimore metal crazies. Maybe their stoner rock, maybe their like the melvins and they don’t give a fuck. either way, they put out great heavy distorted pissed off music.
also for metal lovers, this album was produced by Meatjack & Steve Austin
check out meatjack’s website, which is still operational and has tons of good info about them and their current projects

Earlier today I mentioned on twitter Boiling Man’s “Roadkill Museum” EP. I always find myself coming back to, I don’t necessarily know why its nothing too special except just really good crusty punk songs. With lyrics I can get down with, I’m not one for drinking or getting high and I am vegetarian and I do believe in the straight edge ways of life. So really that's a lot of ground to cover.
In this zip file I included Boiling Man’s EP as well as their Split with Broken and two compilation tracks one from each band. I haven’t seen a whole lot of Boiling Man or Broken on other blogs so hopefully someone thats been looking will find this and enjoy it as much as I do.

Recently the Deftones released two new singles, one for a ridiculously titled song "Rocket Skates" & the title track follow-up "Diamond Eyes". Both of which are really freaking awesome, what these tracks and some other stuff I've heard the album seems like it might be the best thing since Around the Pony. As a teenager I really loved the Deftones angsty music & poetically drunk lyrics, they truely understood the loud-quiet-loud formula that nirvana perfected and added in a pinch of rap influence. So if you were ever interested in the Deftones, seriously.. check out the new album "Diamond Eyes". I think its going to be good. also much love to Chi, who's been in a coma since 2008 due to a car accident. I always loved Chi, couldn't really tell you why... I just liked what he played and how he presented himself. I didn't know him personally but I definitely appreciated him in any way I possibly could.
now onto a newer group, Saintseneca. I came across this group searching for old Reflector stuff from a label called Paper Brigade, apparently that label is doing stuff again... like putting out amaziny records from this group. They're super limited s/t 7" is curretly out of print but is still available for download from all the right venues (as well as the paper brigade website) and more importantly they just released a new EP called "Grey Flag" which isn't the same pace as the first ep but is just as catchy and addicting. Seriously, if you like acoustic music or music that makes you feel good or music that takes you and throws you into a group people singing for love and passion and music then download/purchase, listen, and repeat.
