Supercancer is one of the many bands who have e-mailed me sending me their music because of this blog. They are also one of the very few I've actually posted because of it. I've been talking to Paul from Supercancer a bunch via e-mail and so I'll probably end up posting more stuff from them eventually. They're a noodly emo type of band, but from Cape Town, South Africa. For the title track, basically picture a better produced Snowing with an accent. The next song is twinkly daddy acoustic, but it still rules. I'm really looking forward to what they come up with as they continue as a band. Hope you enjoy it!

So somehow I forgot to post this, even after Derrick asked me to! Whoops!
It's a really great 2nd EP with the addition of a new drummer and Greg Horbal (of My Heart To Joy fame - they're really stepping up their twinkle daddy status) on guitar/backing vocals. It's a little different and more straight forward rocking, but it's super good. Especially live. And with that I bring up:
Dads is doing a weekender tour with The World Is in February. We're all really excited for it and hope some of you can come out! Here are the dates:
Feb 11 - Ship Bottom, NJ - Hertz House w/ Dads, The World Is..., These Branches, more
Feb 12 - Allston, MA - Wacky Kastle w/ Dads, The World Is..., Sinaloa, Osier Bed, The New & Very Welcome
Feb 13 - Willimantic, CT - Handsome Woman w/ Dads, Derrick's of The World Is... solo, more

Oceans are a mostly-instrumental band from the Chicago area that were pre-Castevet. Basically if you took the instrumental parts of Castevet, but stretched them out and sometimes added different sounding vocals, you'd have Oceans. This is another band I found out from VLV years ago, but never thought to post here. They also have a demo, which is no where near as good, but I can post that if there's interest.
