We're pretty fucked... think you can help? [Jul. 19th, 2006|08:03 pm]

Hey guys, we're more than a week into tour and still looking for some help...

This is for This Flood Covers the Earth and Lanterns.
Flood = screamy epic post-hardcore, hear them here: myspace
Lanterns = loud indie guitar rock, hear them here: myspace

Basically, we're looking for anything, and I will stress ANYTHING at this point. We have our own PA with us, if you could just give us access to your living room or basement or garage for an evening and invite your friends over and let us pass a hat around and try and sell some shit, that would be amazing. A lot of people have been really great and helped out, but a ton of other people flaked on us and pretty much fucked us while we're a thousand miles from home. Any help at all would be amazing, so if you can, please hit us up.

We leave soon for tour and we need some help... [Jul. 6th, 2006|09:49 pm]
music = life.
thereceivingend
Hello there.

I'm about to leave on tour with my band, This Flood Covers the Earth, and our friends, Lanterns. We have a split record that just came out on History Major Records, and were hoping to play some shows this summer in support of it around the country.

Flood plays epic, heavy post-hardcore, some influences: Botch, Isis, Drive Like Jehu, Unwound, Mission of Burma, Funeral Diner. Lanterns plays spacey, aggressive indie rock, some influences: Pavement, the Jesus and Mary Chain, Meneguar, Cap'n Jazz, My Bloody Valentine, Heroin. Both bands have Myspaces with some sounds on them, so you can hear for yourself, Flood's is here, Lanterns' is here.

We could really use some help on some of these dates, and honestly, we'll play pretty much anywhere, as long as it's all ages (or [grudgingly] 18+). This includes a DIY space, a club, a bar, your living room one night, your garage in the afternoon, your basement at four in the morning... well, you get the idea. We don't need guarantees or to be fed or to be given places to stay, we just need places to play, and we really will take anything and will just be stoked to each play for twenty minutes and make some new friends with the dozen or so people that trickle in and pay attention to us for two-thirds of an hour total.

We can and will offer and honor any and all show trades in San Diego, Orange County, and Los Angeles. We try to be upstanding, role model-worthy young men.

Thanks for reading, and thanks for your time. Hopefully we'll hear from you and see you on the road this summer.

xoxo Charlie / Flood / Lanterns

Marionette - Buffalo, NY [Mar. 30th, 2006|01:48 pm]

We're a four piece from Buffalo with some weird harder-edge indie sound. Honestly, there's no real way to put a label on it. Feel free to check us out at www.marionettemusic.com ... We have a 3 song demo out right that we independently recorded and threw together just to get something out there. If you're interested in obtaining one, shoot us an e-mail by clicking on the logo on the second page.

For fans of - The Beatles, The Clash, Fugazi, Jawbreaker

Thanks in advance.

"Road Trip to Idaho(in memory)"http://www.mixposure.com/song.php?songid=25281
This one is another manic drum n bass venture. Took influences from depeche mode ala black celebration/angelo badalamenti for the opening them add in some aphex twin/µ-ziq beat style, a pinch of crazy jazz, then the new melody in the vein of journey to reedham from squarepusher stirred with the rentals and the cars synths and some emotional piano music, add some love and dreams and you got yourself this song. All of this of course in my own spin and perspective of things im just not afraid to show my influences

We made a record. [Nov. 7th, 2005|03:06 am]
music = life.

Hi there. We're the View From Space. We're from San Diego, CA.

We just made a record called Hands Drawn to Fire As Sailors to Sea. It's four songs in twenty-nine minutes. One of them has a gang vocal.

If Drive Like Jehu, Funeral Diner, Isis, Unwound, Mogwai, Godspeed You Black Emperor, and Envy were all cats and got into a fight, they'd sound something like the way we sound.

You can hear some of the songs here: click click click.

We play shows and stuff, and we could talk about them, but mostly this is a fairly typical "omgz guyz our band put out a cheaply made CD-R you should totally come see us play and/or buy one!!!1!" type of post.

So tell us what you think, and if you like it, that's cool. Maybe we'll come through the city you live in one day and you can come see us and tell us in person. Or maybe we already play in the city you live in, so you can do it sooner. Or if you don't like it, you can tell us that we suck and that abortion is a choice that our mothers should have made.

Anyway, thanks for reading... and hopefully listening.
