      I just found out and I'm stoked! "Integrity Blues" was kind of the soundtrack of my life for the past year so I'm really excited to see where this one takes me!

      I didn't realize Jimmy Eat World was still around and putting out music. The only album of theirs I have listened to is Bleed American, which I sought out after loving Sweetness from the NHL 2003...

      I didn't realize Jimmy Eat World was still around and putting out music. The only album of theirs I have listened to is Bleed American, which I sought out after loving Sweetness from the NHL 2003 soundtrack. That was a damn good album though, so I should really check out some of their new stuff!

    A piece of forgotten Japanese early 2000s pop: Change the World by V6. It should be painful to listen to, but that harmony! I'm always listening to VGMs, but this week has mostly been Yuurei-kun....

    I'm always listening to VGMs, but this week has mostly been Yuurei-kun. One of these days I will need to come up with a playlist of best PSG tunes.

        VGM: Video Game Music. It's also a logging format for chiptunes which allows for cycle-exact reproductions of original tunes.

        PSG: Programmable Sound Generator. It's a generic term for the General Instruments AY-3-8910 and its many clones. It's a sound chip capable of generating three channels of square waves and one channel of noise. A variation was used broadly across many computers, arcade games, toy keyboards, vending machines, etc. Fun fact: it's the chip powering Creative Labs' first audio product, the Game Blaster.

    Just got home from a sick set at Mezzrow, a tiny little jazz club in NYC. It was a trio with pianist Kevin Hays, bassist Joe Martin and the great drummer Bill Stewart. Abstract and ridiculously swinging at the same time. Sounded something like this.

    The Backwordz album 'Veracity'
    Sounds like: ancap nu metalcore
    Backwordz - Self Ownership

    I completely missed that A Dark Halo released a new song earlier this year:
    Sounds like: Industrial Metal
    A Dark Halo - Starfall

    Insomnium's new album - Heart like a grave
    Sounds like: Insomnium (see melancholy wrapped in melodic death metal)
    Insomnium - Heart Like a Grave

    The Agonist's new album - Orphans
    Sounds like: Better since Alissa was replaced
    The Agonist - As One We Survive

    I have been listening to Among Authors debut album, I AM BECOME, on loop for the last few days. It's wonderfully ethereal, hauntingly beautiful, and I can't get enough of it. Their KEXP performance is still one of my absolutely favorites, too. They are supposedly working on their second album now, but their lead singer and keyboardist, Ian Ketterer, has pretty profound health issues (he had open heart surgery at 23) so it might be a while. Until it's done I am pretty satisfied listening to what they have already put out though. :)

    My soundtrack for the week has been Between the Heart and the Synapse by The Receiving End of Sirens. IMO its a forgotten gem of the mid-2000's post-hardcore/emo with a good bit of prog influence. The layered vocals get me every time. I'm a real sucker for a song where there are multiple singers singing different things on top of each other.

    The new Desert Sessions album has been released today, I'm trying to find it on Google Play Music (It might not get released there tho :/ ) I've heard it should be on spotify at least.
