Nicholas Limczak
Album: Waking up hurts
Genre: Folk-punk

Super beautiful Folk Punk.

from the liner notes:
"We ended up on opposite sides of the country, in many senses of the word. Alaska is just about as different and as far away from Florida as you can get. But even though in the last few years Nick was alive, we only talked a few times a year, when we did, it was just like when we lived in the same town. The only thing that was different is that the last time I saw Nick he was happy. All the negativity of being stagnant for years, floating around from place ti place was washed away. He had found something that I still haven't. And in Classic Nick Fashion, he passed away when things were finally looking up for him. But i'm glad he actually got to feel at home, even if it was only for a short time. Nick died in Naples, Florida on December 6th, 2007. There was a formal viewing for family and friends before he was cremated and his ashes made there way back to Alaska He was laid to rest in a place that he visited daily. A celebration took place and people gathered, sang songs, told stories and remebered Nick in whatever way they saw fit. Here is a paraphrased retelling of that day from a friend who was there. It had been raining for 24 hours and the clouds stayed close to the ground. The sun tiredly surrendered and hid behind the mountain peaks. At first only a few people gathered in the little cove where, everyday, Nick walked his dog. Soon car load after car load of people appeared. People from all walks of life came to pay there respects. It hit me then how much he had grown and just how many lives he had touched. I was lucky enough to get to see Nick the last night he was alive. We visited, talked, drank, and spent time finding out what eachother had been doing as of late. At the end of the night we said our goodbye's. He was leaving to go back to Alaska and we knew we wouldn't see eachother for a while. it was the best possible way I could have goodbye to a friend."

Wisconsin Dream Guitar- S/T EP

Artist: Wisconsin Dream Guitar
Album: Self-Titled EP
Year: 2010
Place of Origin: Prince George, British Columbia
1. Cincinnati
2. Tennessee Wheat Child
3. Latest Sad
4. Modern Fistfighter
5. Green Girls

I know a lot of people here were Big Old Eyes fans, so I figured this would be the right place to throw this. Wisconsin Dream Guitar is Rob, who wrote most of Big Old Eyes' songs, and Leigh O'Neill, who helped with some BOE recordings (like slide on "I am Not a Gentleman," for the fanatics out there). As a duo, they make some pretty epic music. Leigh's drumming compliments Rob's songwriting really well and the chemistry is unbeatable.

Album: retrospective
Genre: Screamo
Country of Origin: NYC, USA
Year: 2oo5

One of my favorite screamo bands of all time.

Saetia had numerous members throughout its existence, with frequent changes in membership. The band's first bass player, Alex Madara, was affected by a severe allergic reaction which placed him into a coma for eight days, finally resulting in his death on 1998-12-14.

Their drummer, Greg Drudy, was the original drummer of the indie-rock band Interpol prior to their current popularity. He currently runs the record label Level Plane. Other members of the band continued their musical careers in numerous outfits, some of them joining screamo bands such as Off Minor, Hot Cross, and The Fiction, as well as the nu-metal band Instruction.

Get it!

Check out the track Closed hands, one of the best examples true emotion in music i have ever heard.

Love lost but not forgotten

Love lost but not forgotten

The Witchies

Don't have much time to write a full post (not that I ever really do), but I up'd this for a friend and might as well post it here too. Heres a great 5 song EP from (yet another) Canadian band that I expect much from in the future. They kinda sound like if Wolf Parade played dark power-pop in the late 60's.

Warpaint - Exquisite Corpse

Artist: Warpaint
Album: Exquisite Corpse
Genre: dream-pop/shoegaze
Year: 2009 (but most of the songs have been around for longer I believe)
Heres a link to the song Billie Holiday, after listening you'll know if your onboard or not. It feels like the group has been around forever but this album has only (or rather finally) been released this past year. Dreamy, a little fuzzy around the edges, Warpaint has a sound that truly takes you elsewhere. And oh yeah, Shannyn Sossaman was originally the drummer for band.
