100 Onces - S/T

100 Onces - 100 Onces (2014)

100 Onces new self-titled debut will shred your face right off. This is math rock riding a skateboard into a bowl full of cancer-free cigarettes. A bit more punk than their last release, 100 Ounces, but that's fine by me.

Highlights: "Shredders of the Universe", "Never Change", "Etch-a-Sketch Orchestra", "Boreder Patrol", "Sr. Kate", and the rest of the album.

For fans of math rock, Tera Melos, Bygones, Los Angeles, shredding, and high energy extreme sports.

Various Maine Artists - Cut the Shit Vol. 3(2014)

This is volume three of Mike Cunnane's super cool and completely DIY recordings of Maine bands. Some of these bands I got to see tear it up (musicly speaking, of course) at Portland music fests and special outings this summer i.e. Hopeless Losers, Babe, and TG9; some I have known for some time i.e. if and it, Mr. NEET, Great Western Plains, SS Cretins, and others i.e. Phallus Uber Alles, The English Muffins, and Fadeaway Jumpers are bands I'm listening to for the first time via this rad comp.

All the bands, as always, are completely different, so don't skip a beat if you wanna find something new to listen to. Bands like TG9 (members of Perfect Hair and An Anderson) and SS Cretins (psych throwbackers and good friends of mine) should especially be bands you'll be seeing/hearing again on this site so don't sleep on those folks.

Enough yapping from me... just check this out:

Be sure to check out the other volumes as well if you like what you hear ;)

NFT's October Mix (warning: spooky)

Nothing says Spooktober like watching cheesy B slashers, Nicolas Cage's Wicker Man, listening to lots of horror-influenced metal music, and trying to figure out what you do for Halloween as an adult.

I tried making last month's mix sound kind of like all those things above sans Nic Cage. There's also some modern flair that went in to this mix and some stuff that obviously was just what I happened to listen to in October. Listen and enjoy (alone and with the lights off):

Also, if you're interested in all the spooky/thrilling/suspenseful/Halloween-y stuff I watched this October, I decided to share my Spooktober views over at IMDB.
