I jumped around a bit but caught some real nice lead work from you, for example coming out of Space Age prior to Weekapaug. Nice little jam out of Paug.

But listen, it's 2017, give us HD footage.

This was done via Facebook live, and the wifi connection at the venue was spotty so it degraded the quality.  Set 2 glitches at the beginning because it lost signal.  Next one will be better because we're bringing our recording rig from the rehearsal space. 

Thanks for listening though man.  I'm pretty proud of this show, i think we played real well for our first actual gig and also considering that I was sporting nearly a 100 degree fever for this haha.  I was so sick last week with bronchitis.  It was awful. 

Curious what you guys think of our Twist jam too.

so here's set 2 for those who are interested!!  Again, apologies for the clitches in the first song; we lost signal, so some of it is cut out.  Also hopefully next time we'll have better audio and video so it's not bootleg looking like this haha.  Still, there is A LOT that I like about this set.  I hope you guys enjoy it.

lol it's just the video being backwards.  I don't know how to fix that. 

Did you listen?  I'm really curious what you guys all think.

Hey guys! 

So, I know this is opening up the rabbit hole of criticism but my band just released our first single.  It was recorded at our practice space which we converted into a studio for one night.  Our singer is an engineer so we set up a whole bunch of stuff and he used his home studio to run it.  I think it came out pretty good. 

I would very much love it if you guys could take a listen and say what you think.




We also have an older jam from rehearsal we released back in January that I think is really good too.  This came out of Weekapaug Groove, and if you have a discerning ear you'll hear a melody at the very end which signals it is the completion of an earlier segment of music ;)

something something 3.0.....  haha

But no, that's not all that matters!  I need you to like it!   :rockout: :hereitisyousentimentalbastard

Thanks man!  We've got some more stuff coming soon, hopefully.  Maybe someday we'll open for the Jauntee and I can sit in on their wildly successful original song, I've Got A Feeling.

Hey guys!  So, we played what I feel like was our best show ever last night.  It was pretty fucking killer, and someone captured some really good video footage of a song I wrote that I think you guys will all like. 

Please take some time and check this out.  Pink Floyd/post-rock inspired with a Dirt-esque pretty section in the middle.  No improv, just a big long thing XD

Nice work gumbo. You’ve come a long way with your sound as a band.  :music:

Thanks man!   So, we finally got the tapes up.  There's a lot of good stuff in here.  You guys should peep the Walk Away, we tore that one a new asshole I thought.  I like it a lot.  I thought we played everything really well overall.  Some parts need a bit more rehearsal, but we have a new bass player that we threw all this at in like a month haha. 

Setlist:

Eminence Front
Cities ->
Grovers Mill 1938 (original)
Bolly Golly (original)
Swing That Maximus (original)
Portraits (original)
Walk Away
Stardust (original)

Sounds pretty good dude.  Keep it up.  I can hear the improvement from the last clip I listened to 6+ months ago.  Keep at it!
