also, i had a record put out on "i had an accident records" recently which is up for stream somewhere on the internets. if anyone actually wants an album, i'll upload it or even paint you a cover and send you it. im also working on the next one which is more loopy and a little less fuzzy. damg./
Just released an acquaintance of mine's record on 25 hand numbered CD-Rs with a poster + insert. You can download it for free, and buy it if you like it (for about $10 shipping included) from this link; longlostrecords.wordpress.com/2010/08/24/lst002/
I want to share my little brothers first demo with you all. His name is Sam, he's sixteen, and he wrote this song about a year ago, and just recorded it a few weeks ago. It's a 3 piece band, Sam sings and shares the guitar lead and rhythm. He also designed the, somewhat lame, album cover, ha. He is mega into metal (as you will hear).
if someone of you might have a second, i'd like to invite you to my music as well. it is basically sad folky music without being that much folky somehow. (sound weird? yeah, it does.) so let's say it is sad music, played with acoustic guitar(s). anyway, would be nice if some of you guys might find the time to check: www.myspace.com/hlynurgudjonsson
p.s. i recommend the top 4 songs. they are from my recent tour ep, i prefer the sound of the recording over the older ones. it is very lofi, not done to much "production" with them.
btw: maybe someone is interested in this. my first proper album is out for 2 weeks now. you can listen to it on bandcamp if you'd like:

pt78, I listened to your album before going to class this morning. It's very haunting and has a good winter-in-a-temperate-rainforest feel to it. I definitely enjoyed. It sounds like a good mix of Six Organs Admittance and Michael Brook's instrumental score to the movie Into The Wild (both of which are great). Keep recording.
hey brandon, thank you so much for your kind feedback! i am very glad that you took the time to check my record out and that you enjoyed listening. think i should listen to some six organs admittance soon. people keep recommending them to me but i haven't heard a single note from them yet.

I love that cover, I'm such a sucker for hazy photos like that. And haunting winter music is my favorite kind, so I'm going to have to listen to that sometime soon for sure. I'll let you know what I think of it.
I've been working for the past few months on a proper second album which I'm hoping to finish up soon and then hold on to for a bit so I can release it next fall...it sounds kind of fall/winter-ish to my ears since that's when I've made most of it, so it wouldn't feel right to release it just as it's getting warmer. Also I don't want to rush it or anything lke that. Every Saturday night for the past four weeks though (not counting this past weekend) I've recorded myself messing around with a loop pedal for half an hour or so as a little distraction, and I've been posting the results online. I've called the series "Saturday Night Live" since that's what it is I guess. It's nothing I'm taking too seriously but I'm pleased with the way a lot of it came out, although the first one is kind of sloppy. You can hear them here: squanto.bandcamp.com/
