BAND: Star Fucking Hipsters
COUNTRY: United States of America
ALBUM: Until We're Dead
GENRE: Punk Rock / Crack Rock Steady / Ska

Remember the first time you've heard of D.I.Y Punk back in the late 90s? (We get it, you're from the 80s and have better taste in Punk, piss off now) It's pretty much like that.... I love this so much.

It's like Punk Rock in Crack.
Also, for fans of Leftöver Crack, Morning Glory or Choking Victim.

Jason Mraz - Selected Recordings

Artist: Jason Mraz
Album: Various Albums
Genre: Acoustic, Pop

Jason Mraz is a singer/songwriter who plays acoustic, funk/rock-influenced pop. He's got a great voice and is almost always accompanied by his friend, backup singer, and djembe player, Noel 'Toca' Rivera. I've given you some of his live albums that feature just Jason Mraz and Toca without the rest of his band. I feel that these show the true nature of his live performance due to the intimate setting and unplugged atmosphere. I've also upped a bootleg that I just downloaded, and it sounds incredible, as good as any commercial recording.

Christmas with the Rat Pack

Off with my over coat, off with my gloves,
who needs an over coat, I'm burning with love!

The Rat Pack is a group of musicians and actors of the 1960s, most well known of which is the trio of Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, and Sammy Davis, Jr. This is an album I picked up at Costco a couple years back, and I put it away in a box on my hard drive for most of the year, and when December roles around I blow the dust off it and play is ceaselessly. You know, you guys should be grateful of where you are (unless you're in the tropics like me), shit the only change you notice in Hawaii is the stores get decked out in September! Oh, what I would give to see the leaves change, and snow fall.

Merry Christmas, brothers.
Click for some yuletide cheer

The Red Chord - Fed Through The Teeth Machine

Latest album from The Red Chord. Brutal, angry and just damn nasty. Another solid release from these guys. Very similar to Prey for Eyes, but with more leads. Techncal Death/Grind/Metalcore at its best.

I offer up to the Gods of Metal, Kylesa. A Georgia sludge act that is a lot like Boris in the respect that they refuse to remain static, refuse to remain on one sound. I offer you Time Will Fuse Its Worth and To Walk A Middle Course. Both excellent albums.

Time Will Fuse Its Worth
To Walk A Middle Course


I humbly offer you the discography of Baroness. One of the kings of modern Sludge, from Savannah, Georgia. The members originally were from up in Virginia, but moved on down to Georgia to start up Baroness. Fronted by guitarist, artist, and vocalist John Dyer Baizley, Baroness features intelligent guitar work, eclectic stylings (in the vein of such fellow Georgia bands as Kylesa and Jucifer), and amazing musicianship. I personally recommend the entire discography, but if you want specific "get this one right fucking now" then I'd say go with Red Album, that's what I started off with. BUT, I'm also a big fan of First.

Leftover Crack

Here is Leftöver Crack's first full length album Mediocre Generica. I picked this up off of the Crustmas blog initially, but it was in a shitty file format that only works in Itunes. So I'm reuploading it in .mp3 file format. Leftöver Crack is a band that encompasses several genres going from death metal, to ska, to crust punk all in short of each other. The singer is kinda weak initially, but he shows his skills as the album wears on. They have anarchist lyrics and sing about anti-homophobia, anti-religion, anti-government, anti-racism, etc. etc. This album was released by Epitaph, the irony of the name was lost to the producers who were pressuring the band to put out a mediocre generic name for the album. The album was released on Septempber 11, 2001, by coincidence. The band released their second album, which is a shitty follow up titled "Fuck World Trade", which beside the offensive name is actually not very good. The band currently reside at C-Squat.

I have since decided the world of Punk Rock wouldn't miss them if they fell in a hole, because they're fucking douche bags, but their music is pretty OK. Kinda mediocre.
