Black Eyes Short lived (for they disbanded sometime in March '04) post-punk dudes, these made seriously wicked basslines that'll ensure eargasms listen after listen. I stumbled across these guys a couple of months back, guess that makes me half a decade late, eh? They completely blew me away with their self titled. Brilliant effects, swooping guitars and thumping basslines make them. Lots of mixed reviews amongst people though, I think fans of Arab on Radar, Fugazi and the like would love them. And if you don't like it, no big whoop.

So sorry for the lack of posts. Alot's been happening, what with work / school / life. Also trying to get a band together. It's more or less still in the gutters right now, have to get back to that later. Also, I've been adding to the "My heart is a Jerk" tag on, check it out for good enough music that'll pass by your time (if you have any). So, yeah. Here's Megafaun , a homey folk-noir trio from North Carolina. Originally started out with the Bon Iver guy aka (Justin Vernon), though he made like a banana and split. Still, Megafaun has their sound firmly cemented, and man do they make sundays a hella lot easier on the ears. Their latest , "Gather, Form & Fly" (another well-named album, dont you think?) was released sometime July '09 via Hometape Records.

Here's a Vid of "Impressions of the Past", which is in the album.
