• HAVES: KC/Lawrence (& more) Music: splits/comps

    1. This is a journal containing bands and albums I have recordings from on my computer. Though I try to support local music as best as I can by attending shows and buying albums, not all of this music I am in direct physical possession of through purchase.
    2. Not all of the bands below are directly from the KC/Lawrence area. Other cities and towns I keep in this collection are Topeka, KS, Columbia, MO, Wichita, KS, Warrensburg, MO, Manhattan, KS, and a few other, more rural areas of the region. Essentially, it contains everything east of and including Wichita in Kansas, and everything west of and including Columbia in Missouri.
    3. In addition to the previous point, you will notice that not all of the bands here are current residents of the region. Many bands (Mates of State, White Rabbits, etc.) unfortunately decided to move away to a larger metro area. Others (The Appleseed Cast, Namelessnumberheadman), were started in different regions and then relocated here at some point, usually early in their career. …
  • Negative things about my top 10 favorite bands.

    It's hard enough to think of my top ten favorite bands. I'll just put the ones I can think of right now. C: It's pretty hard to think of the negatives.

    1. The Spill Canvas
    I can't think of anything bad to say about this band. They're just amazing. The only thing that I can think of is that they're vastly underrated. I would lovelovelove to see this band live.

    2. Silverstein
    The new album was not as good as I had expected at all. The only song that I really liked about it was Bodies and Words and it's currently one of my favorite songs.

    3. Drop Dead, Gorgeous
    I was so excited for their new album to come out and when it finally did, I was disappointed. It was actually kind of annoying. ://

    4. The Submarines
    I don't have enough of them. I can hardly even find their music anywhere.

    5. Emery
    Sometimes I find them annoying. && I haven't heard anything new in a while.

    6. Ashlee Simpson
    Everyone hates her. && the song Boyfriend annoys the crap out of me. ://
  • The American EP by From

    Giu 26 2006, 1:09 di autumnsweaters

    A raw, dusky debut from a Los Angeles one-woman band, called uh, FROM. A virginal, moody synth-pop pursuit filled with crunchy guitars, 80's fantasies in minor keys and Swedish electro-beats. On occasion, I find myself staring blankly into space and on other times, I manage to find myself dancing in a strange, mechanical way. Yes, it's dance music where you can genuinely invent far-out dance steps upon repeated spins, and enjoy them. 'Could be the start of a new dance craze.
