YES! Keep forgetting about them, great call.

I know so little new music without 106.3 :evilcry: I'm still not over it. It's not summer in Jersey without FM106.3/G-Rock.

That's why you need some XM / Sirius in your life...sure, they are an annoying mega corporation with terrible customer service, but gosh darn to they play some good music now and again. The whole Bell X1 CD is quite stellar, by the way!


I get Sirius/XM on DirecTV and my father has it for his car. What strikes me is how much repetition there is...it seems no different than commercial radio in that respect. For as little as I listen to it, I hear the same songs over and over (if I hear Pearl Jam on Lithium again, or that damned Asteroid Galaxy Tour band that only seems to exist on Alt Nation again, I'm gonna scream)

Last, notice how I said "play good music now and again" :D The variety really has gone down the tubes in the years I've had it, but it's still better than commercial radio.

By the way, since we're all sharing music videos, allow me to post a video my brother recently shot and directed for an R&B singer friend of his. The song is a touch above decent but dare I say the video is pretty fantastic for being made with no money, although I am a touch biased. I'm just a proud brother!

Yeh, Bell X1 is good stuff. I've been away from Jersey for most of the summer but I too am not over losing G Rock. It made my delivery job much more enjoyable to actually hear decent music on the radio and it introduced me to a ton of new and old bands. Unfortunately for me I didn't find G Rock until a month before they switched.


Stuff I've gotten lately

Silversun Pickups- Swoon

Peter Bradley Adams- Leavetaking

Silversun Pickups are by far my favorite band. Ever since I heard "Kissing Families" from their EP Pikul I fell in love. Inbetween that EP and both of their full lengths I have never heard a track I didn't like. Great band.

Came out today, but VVinyl tends to break release dates and had it on the shelf on Sunday when I went to search for the Iran album.

It's not AWFUL, but there's nothing there that's gonna make me want to listen more than twice. Which is weird, because even the OLP albums I didn't like (Gravity) had stuff that made me want to listen again. That talk of "we're gonna rock like Naveed" was BS.

They sound like a band that's afraid to do what they do best.

Monkey Brains is a good song, so was Refuge and White Flags...a lot of them I don't even remember which song was which though, they're all so...meh.

The album cover's probably the best one since Clumsy though, so it's got that going for it, which is nice.


I've been listening to a lot of the new Pheonix album lately. There are a whole bunch of great songs on it.

As for the new OLP album, it's average at best. I think you are right on with Monkey Brains and Refuge being the stand out tracks. The rest is pretty typical mainstream top 40 crap. I do like the album cover too.

Regardless of how good..or bad this album is...they are still a fun band to see live. I saw them last week and they put on a good show.Their guitarist has gotten a lot better live.

Yeah, I'm regretting not getting tickets for the NYC show tonight. The person I was going to go with couldn't go, so I didn't bother. I imagine there will be a full-scale tour eventually though, they always seem to do a handful of one-offs when a new album comes out, then an actual tour a few months later.

I have to say, after posting that semi-review, I downloaded the two "bonus" (Time Bomb and The Right Stuff) tracks that weren't on the CD I bought, and I like them both better than most of the stuff on the album, so they haven't lost their touch, they're just overthinking the album concept, I think. Which is ironic considering no one buys albums anymore it seems.

Edit: After listening to it multiple times, I think The Right Stuff could become one of my favorite OLP songs. Almost wishing I waited for the version of the album with the bonus tracks, instead of grabbing the regular version just to have it a few days early.

Unfortunately, I've been out of the loop with new music for a while. But I heard this song last week on Sons of Anarchy, a pretty kick-ass show IMO. I think this one is already a few years old, but whatever, it's new to me.

Back in 1998, this was the first band to ever blow me away live (I was just 15). Since then I've loosely gathered their catalog and even saw 'em open for Green Day in Asbury in '01. But mostly I've done a crap job of being a fan. But they came up on my iPod the other day and since then I've been going nuts rediscovering their ass-kickery.

The band is The Living End. Check 'em out.

This is just ridiculous:


And this is the song that put them on the map:
