I love finding bands on Bandcamp. I have a personal library of the music I have purchased, and have snagged even more for free when it's been offered at that price.

There are so many acts/genres to choose from on the Bandcamp site, and when I discover something new that is amazing or catchy, I buy it. It is such a good feeling to help support musicians who just want to be heard. And even better is finding new stuff from bands I already like.

Her are a few works I highly recommend, and plan to buy soon:

  • Night Lines by Cuushe. Check out their album "Butterfly Cases". I loved it so much when I first heard it, that I bought the cd and the digital.
  • Leave You by Elastic Sleep. There is a definite Lush influence in this Irish band's debut. I want the vinyl too, but I'll be happy with just the digital for now.
  • Demos EP by Cherry Crush. I have had several of this band's offerings in heavy rotation for awhile now.
  • EP by Muscle Beech. A fun bunch of surf songs, perfect for this upcoming summer, whether you live near a beach or not!
  • Reminisce by Evil Needle. Jazzy instrumentals that were sent to my in box by HW&W Records. Check out the label's other stuff too ( I recommend Mike Gao and Stwo, among others).

Beer Review - Two I Missed

Fantastic beer - 4/5 stars

Nostalgia from my 6 years in the Portsmouth, NH area.
Great beer, even better on tap.

Beer Review - Sculpin IPA

22 ounce bottle.
IPA's are my beer style of choice. On a whim today I picked up this offering from San Diego's Ballast Point Brewing Company, their Sculpin India Pale Ale. I found out that even after finishing a 22 ounce bottle, I could probably still drink it all day. It's flavor is in the sweet spot between a good 'typical' IPA and Magic Hat's #9 Not Quite Pale Ale.

Bonus: the sunset after imbibing!

New Music Mondays - Bing Satellites

One of our favorites, Bing Satellites, has a new ambient album out.

If you are staring up at the night sky, reading a book, or just doing some deep thinking, and you want a memorable soundtrack for these activities, go snag "Twilight Sessions Volume 13" here. It will fill your ears with what you need...

And make sure you check  out their other releases as well! We have been enjoying them for years.
