...Of Sinking Ships: S/T

This upload is by request. ..Of Sinking Ships is a side project of Chad Waldrup who was apparently in some band called Hopesfall. Instrumental twinkles but not what I would really consider post rock. Most of the music still follows a verse/chorus feel rather than the rise/fall pattern you see with most. I get a faster tempo American Football vibe from it. Check it out.

Plesiosaurs - Lorelei (Teaser Track)

So my good good friends in Plesiosaurs have recently been ~signed~ to a/s/l records out of Atlantic City, NJ. Since then, they recorded a new EP to be out soon. Overall, they're not tooooo twinkly, but they have tons of riffz all over the place. Plus they have cool gear and are really loud, so they're all good in my book. Their more usual sound is a mix of 90's indie a la Pavement (i.e. "We're Gonna Need A Bigger Boat") with some loud more shoegazy parts, maybe? Who knows, who cares? John was a sport and let me post one of their new tracks so I could share their new music with everyone on here! This is, by far, their most twinkly/fitting song for this blog and it rules hard! They're doing a late summer tour and playing a bunch of shows with Deer Friends, so go see them! If you see them, tell them to "go to space"! They'll get it.

Maps and Atlases - Perch Patchworks

So here's the new Maps and Atlases. I haven't had a chance to listen to it yet, but I figured I'd post it for people who want it! I'm not going to bother to explain their sound, you should know if you're on this blog!
