Mini-Review: Yeasayer - Daytrotter Sessions
I have not yet heard the album (All Hour Cymbals) that the songs from this session are from. I have only heard Odd Blood, but I utterly adore it. It should be noted that Yeasayer are weird and a little disturbing. They are not comfortable. But that’s a big part of the appeal. Importantly, they are good. Yeasayer did four songs for their Session: 2080 - This intrigues me, makes me...
Mini-Review: fun. - Daytrotter Session
I’m completely in love with fun. and the album (Aim & Ignite) that these songs were drawn from. I’ve listened to it a whole, whole lot.

Mini-Review: The Maine - Daytrotter Session
Before this I’d only heard Right Girl and Inside of You by The Maine, both on the Alternative Music Choice channel. It’s seriously the closest thing I have to a radio anymore.

So when I saw that they’d done a Daytrotter Session I went to check it out. They did four songs for their Session: God & Satan, Many of Horror, Mountains, and The Captain. I knew to expect a stripped down, semi-acoustic...

Suicide Realities →
This is ridiculous, if it’s even true. I’ve been suicidal off & on my whole life. If this girl a) exists and b) committed suicide it wasn’t anything to do with whether or not a musician replied to her email or not. When you’re suicidal there is literally nothing that will stop you if you’re serious about it. It’s not a cry for help, it’s not...
