  • The Speed of Sound in Seawater
    By on May 9th, 2011 | 111 Comments111 Comments Comments

    genre: Math-Pop/Indie-Pop/Twinkle
    country: USA
    notes: I wanted to post something a bit different. The Speed of Sound in Seawater is a math-pop band from California. They just released a new album entitled Underwater Tell Each Other Secrets. The music is insanely beautiful and there’s a lot going on. Smooth vocals, noodely guitar, and jazzy bass/drums. The sound is pretty consistent throughout all the EPs but unlike some other bands that’s a good fucking thing. They also have two other EPs entitled Red Version and Blue Version that are included in this download. Fans of Algernon Cadwallader, American Football, Toe, and Malegoat. Do it now. Support them if you can though. They’re DIY as fuck. ps. Happy Mothers Day!

  • Ursa Theodorus

    genre: Screamo
    country: USA
    notes: Ursa Theodorus was unfortunately one of those screamo bands that weren’t around for a very long time. This is most of their released material. It’s very unique. Sort of like a more ambient Toru Okada. The noodlely guitar riffs and multiple vox hit home hard. The members went on to form Armorwrists, which also fucking rules.

    genre: Screamo
    country: USA
    notes: Olive Cotard is a newly formed screamo band from Kansas City, MO that formed out of members of Sports, Regret the Informer, and Baitfish. They have a chaotic yet melodic style that is a mixture of Neil Perry and Yaphet Kotto. They are seriously one of the best bands I have heard in awhile so definitely don’t sleep on this.
