Just Some Writings

been pretty fucking depressed lately so I've been writing some really gay things hope you enjoy or not. Here's 3 of them.


in the tunnel
we made statues
for all the people not old enough to drive
to view out of their windows
and we counted
how many smiles we caught
put them in our memories
and then burned the tunnel

if I get wrapped up in actions
I forget that I'm alone
birds long gone
and I fed them everyday
and I bathed their broken skies
and I left a trail of trust in the back yard
sometimes you can't stop nature

lacerating violets
I'm black and white
her daughter kidnapped
and I can see why
her jumprope games
caught the attention of the heat
we died on those steps

Marvin Gaye - What's Going On

One of those albums whose reputation has grown so wildly over the years, but nonetheless, there is a reason why so many people argue over whether or not it is the greatest soul album of all time.

New Lil Wayne Track

Lil' Wayne has released the first single off his highly anticipated Tha Carter IV LP called "6 foot 7 foot". You can check it out over there on the right.

The song's produced by Bangladesh, the man responsible for the crazy stream-of-consciousness assault that was "A Milli." It shows, too. It features a guest spot in the form of Cory Gunz who holds his own, but the real star is Wayne, who spits two fantastic verses of cleverly worded braggadocio in his crazy flow.

You want to hear this, trust me.

Baphomet were a death metal band from Buffalo, back in the late 80's - early 90's. In 1992 they released this awesome album, The Dead Shall Inherit, but shortly thereafter changed their name because some other faggy band called Baphomet whinged. So then they became Banished...

...and released another awesome album: Deliver Me Unto Pain.


Uyama Hiroto - A Son of the Sun

25% Hip Hop
75% Jazz
Still 100% Awesome

This is a lot like Nujabes (RIP Jun Seba), but a lot more instrumentals and easy listening feel-goodness.

Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds - Tender Prey

Seminal post punk release from one of the best bands ever to come out of Australia. If you haven't heard this then your musical education is severely lacking.

Logs - Hogz

Features one of the guys from Kidcrash, though they aren't too similar; Logs are much less mathy and have a grittier sound. Good stuff for sure, official release will be beginning of 2011 through Denovali.

Enabler - Eden Sank to Grief

Excellently awesome hardcore. Sounds a bit like a slightly less sludgy Cursed mixed with some grind and a pretty melodic edge. I mean, I guess I could provide a simile or metaphor equating this to getting physically injured, like punched with a fist or kicked with a foot, or whatever, but I mean, just fucking get it

Snowing - I Could Do Whatever I Wanted If I Wanted

I Could Do Whatever I Want If I Wanted is Snowing's debut Full Length, a sprawling LP filled with a plethora of personal lyrics, drunken sing-a-longs, and noodly riffs. While not as compact as their earlier demos, Snowing's new LP is an enjoyable album and certainly a contender for end-of-the-year lists.

Hey there ladies and gents

Hey guys. I thought of a few ways to say hi, then I decided on a simple one: a story.

Here's a tale for all of you who have ever been in reach of a wonderful girl only to realize she's cut off your hands.

If you don't give a shit, feel free to skip to the bottom for good music.

Me and this girl have been friends for about 2 years. We've always gotten along great, but for no real good reason, we hadn't maintained very good contact. I'd met her through a mutual friend who once helped me out of a tight spot (physically, booya), and at the time this girl (the first one) had a longstanding failing relationship with a guy. This girl is perfect, just perfect. I mean, just think of the exact girl you'd always want to be with: this is her, for me.

I hung out with her a few times about a year-ish later, when she was just out of aforementioned relationship and was starting to see a new guy. I don't know if you guys know the feeling, but man, this girl just made being myself so easy.

Regardless, we fall out of contact again. She gets in another failing (though not violently bad) relationship with the new guy. A year passes. We start talking again. We make spur of the moment plans to hang out, and end up spending the entire night together. This was after a conversation where I confessed I liked her quite a bit and she said the tired song about 'well, I don't know if I feel that way about you'. She admitted, however, that her opinions might have been biased based on the fact that, when she met with me previously, she was already in a relationship.

To cut it short, the night went perfectly. We ended up at her place, watching one of my favorite movies (Memento, watch it immediately), and, with her permission (this is key), we kissed. I thought things went great, though of course, I sensed things maybe didn't go as well as they could have.

The next day, I got perhaps the most insultingly unsatisfying rejection text (yes, a TEXT) on my phone. Friend zoned. Now, man, the weird fucking thing about this is she even admits being attractive to me. I don't get it. What fucking more could there even be? What do you do when you're so close to what you want and it's still so far away?

So, I said to myself...

I guess... fuck bitches; get money.

Here's an album I've been digging for awhile. Good ass trip hop. Beautiful vocals, good beats. Some nice jazz influences. Mostly instrumental, but the songs that aren't are eerily good. Maybe it's been posted before. Whatever. If it has, Dom will yell at me and I'll fix it. Night ya'll

Blue Sky Black Death: Late Night Cinema

Jon Mueller - The Whole

Extremely talented percussionist who has worked with acts such as Volcano Choir, Bon Iver, Pele and Collections of Colonies of Bees. He's also an incredibly prolific solo performer. His early work consisted of percussive improvisations around a very loose framework and accompanied by his voice. He had started to deviate from this method of creation before this release, his music born less of improvisation and more of structured, minimalist composition.
In this release Mueller layers different vocal tracks upon one another and includes the sound of a dulcimer and cymbals on top of his drums: a snare and set of toms. His sense of rhythm is extremely impressive and the atmosphere he creates with this meager array of instruments amazes. Not to be missed.

The Whole

Warpaint - The Fool

You need to listen to this.

James Blake

If you thought How To Dress Well's Love Remains was the coolest thing since sliced Burial, then you ought to give these two EPs from James Blake a listen. Expect a full length early 2011.


Black Moon - Enta Da Stage

Hey anyone ask for milestone early 90s NYC hip hop? Yeah you all did. You just don't know it yet. But you will when you hear this shi

The Endless Blockade - Primitive

Noisy powerviolent destruction from the crazy Canadians in The Endless Blockade.

Harsh, crushing, whatever, just fucking listen.

Bone Awl - Meaningless Leaning Mess

Raw crusty bm that lacerates the ears yet is still undeniably catchy. Great stuff.

Meaningless Leaning Mess


Wavelets are a Floridian band with their hearts in the mid-west. Very catchy emo with all the twinkly-ness you would expect from mid-west worship, along with stupid song titles which seem like in-jokes or something of the sort. If you're a fan of the style, this is well worth a look.

Conveniently, the guys in the band are so generous as to post all of their material for free download here.

So no excuses.

Total Abuse - Mutt

Very noisy release from Total Abuse, one of the seemingly cool-to-hate hardcore bands at the moment from that scene.

This is every bit the mongrel that the title suggests.

Gonjasufi - A Sufi and a Killer

An incredibly diverse release from Gonjasufi on Warp Records, featuring Gaslamp Killer on production duties (and also FlyLo on a couple of tracks).

Psychedelic, lo-fi, electronica, hip-hop, soul... the tags are endless, all (kind of) coming together into a stoned haze of gritty vocals and eclectic production.

A Sufi and a Killer

Kosheen - Resist

Trip Hop-cum-Drum n Bass group from the undisputed home of the genre: Bristol.

Music rules extremely hard like most trip hop, and the way drum and bass is added to the flavour makes for a very interesting listen.

KRS-One - Return of the Boom Bap

Album title says it all.

Awesome beats, great lyrics, and one of the most important MCs in Hip Hop.

Tricky - Maxinquaye+a bonus

One of the biggest names in trip-hop and father of probably the best trip hop album ever (or second best, depending on how you feel about Massive Attack's Mezzanine.) Tricky's smoky voice projects his amalgam of rapping and singing over a layer of dark, opressive and beautiful electronic sounds. Among others, Tricky samples Isaac Hayes (the same sample can be heard on Portishead's song "Glory Box"), the Smashing Pumpkins, Michael Jackson and Marvin Gaye. They all work, too. Obviously. It's too bad he had to start with this album, really, because he's never going to do anything that surpasses it.

Trust me on this one: you NEED this album. It will make your life better.

Also, have his latest one, Mixed Race, as well. It rules too.

Love - Forever Changes

One of the best albums of the 60s and an album everyone should listen to. It's a beautiful compendium of stellar psychadelic pop with the addition of elements such as brass and strings. If you like the Beatles (which you should) listen the fuck out of this.

Shackleton - Three EPs

This is like a subtle beast just waiting to envelope you in darkness and bass.

You should allow it to.

Three Eps

Union of Uranus - To This Bearer of Truth

Can you spot a trend yet?

trendy ass motherfucking blog right here

His Hero Is Gone - Monuments To Thieves

If you don't listen to this band

get the fuck off this blog

A Sunny Day In Glasgow - Ashes Grammar

So it's finally starting to feel like spring, down here in Melbourne.

The sun is out, people look a little less gloomy, and blissful indie tunes are taking over.

This is the audible recording of Spring.

The Hope and the Failure - The Lights Are On But This Dance Never Ends

Female fronted screamo that is rather fucking fantastic, it even makes the eternally grim and frosbitten BALLSTOTHEWALL want to mope all day and night.

So get moping

Vestiges - The Descent of Man

Vestiges are a cute little two-piece playing around with what I really want to call creamo metal but I'm not going to because that would be even stupider than I normally am. They mix up crust, post-metal, screamo and a tiny little bit of black metal to make something that sounds a bit like you'd expect it to - i.e. pretty damn good.

too bad the album cover is boring

The Spectacle - I, Fail

If you ignore the stupid name and never ever ever look at the album cover ever you'll probably like this more. They play creamo sort of like Alpinist except a lot more post-rocky and a little more melodic and whatnot, actually reminds me sort of like The Fall of Efrafa at times too except more screamo and some bits remind me more of old school hardcore punk type shit but not really perhaps sorta. You know what I mean. Oh and they're also A BUNCH OF ANARCHISTS FUCK THE GOVERNMENT.

John Coltrane - A Love Supreme

Just realised:

and it's only Nujabes.

This should be an obvious enough album that doesn't need posting, but man if you don't have it...

The greatest album of all time

Fugazi - Discography

This is the best post that will ever appear on this blog, everybody else might as well just give up right now because really why would you listen to anything else? Hey man, we've got pizza and Fugazi you better come here and chill the fuck out because life is good, man. Eat pizza. Listen to Fugazi. Love life. Words to live by and I don't give a fuck if I'm rambling because god damn it man, Fugazi.

Worship - Last CD Before Doomsday

Worship put the fun in funeral doom.

this post dedicated to funeral dom

Asunder/Graves At Sea Split

Oops looks like I just accidently sludged all over your face, ugh you might wanna wipe that stuff out of your eyes I hear it can cause blindness. And deafness. Fuck it, there's no hope for you now might as well just curl up in a ball and die already.

Turn it up to 11

Avey Tare - Down There

So Avey Tare, one of the dudes from the amazing Animal Collective, has released a solo album of sorts. While it's pretty damn good, it's nowhere near the heights of say Feels or Person Pitch but it's cool.

Axegrinder - The Rise of the Serpent Men

You guys are a bunch of posers, can't up the punx for the life of you. I haven't washed in fucking weeks, I'm developing layers and layers of crust, it is the most filthy, gnarly shit you have ever seen. Just got a bunch of patches too fuck yeah Discharge and Amebix all over my fucking shredded jean jacket gonna put spikes all over this shit, up the punxxxx. But for real Axegrinder were the raddest old school crust band around, forget Amebix this is where it's at.

but don't really forget amebix
