Around The Web – Late August Edition

Around The Web – Late August Edition

We’ve been awful quiet this week, there’s a lot of real life stuff going on for all us and that’s put a bit of a damper on our output. Unfortunately you can expect things to be sporadic for a couple more weeks due to my schedule if nothing else. However slammed we are there’s been […]

Matt Phelan is Probably Cooler Than You

Matt Phelan is Probably Cooler Than You

For the last five months Matt Phelan, bassist for the now defunct Truckstop Darlin’, has been hiking across the country. At this point he’s covered over 2,100 miles, on foot! He’s been hiking The Pacific Crest Trail from Mexico and is currently in Washington, headed for Canada. As far as social media goes he’s been […]

Joey Kneiser / Kelly Smith – Live From Standard Deluxe – Release

If you aren’t living under a rock then you’ve probably already heard about this release by the time this post goes live but here are the details straight from Cory over at This Is American Music: Hey guys, so I think most of y’all are aware that a Joey Kneiser full length is coming out […]

Brent Best – Your Dog, Champ – 2015

Brent Best – Your Dog, Champ – 2015

Brent Best isn’t known for happy songs and Your Dog, Champ doesn’t break with that tradition. There are quite a few tracks on here that are downright dark and shouldn’t be listened in the depths of drinking alone at night. Honestly “Good Man Now” is pretty disturbing but it’s a testament to the strength of […]

Memorial Fund for Mark A. Rodgers (Piss Pissedoffherson)

Memorial Fund for Mark A. Rodgers (Piss Pissedoffherson)

Apparently money even matters when you die, well we all know that but it’s truly fucking ruthless. Mark’s wife is taking donations to help with expenses of taking care of his remains including cremation and crime scene clean up. I can’t imagine having to deal with all of that for a loved one that took […]

I Can Lick Any Sonofabitch In The House – PISS – (2015 EP)

I Can Lick Any Sonofabitch In The House – PISS – (2015 EP)

While I always love getting new music from ICLASOB the reason for this album couldn’t be more tragic. Last week the world lost Piss Pissedoffherson (aka Mark Allen Rodgers), the driving force behind The Devil’s Own, and close friends with everyone in ICLASOB. While I’ve written about The Devil’s Own I wasn’t close with Piss […]

Morning Drawings

Morning Drawings

In a fit of total failure I noticed that we’ve never mentioned Shane Sweeney’s project: Morning Drawings. Shane, who you should know from Two Cow Garage and his solo albums, draws song lyrics. He draws stuff that inspires him as well as commissions. The image above is one I commissioned for my wife because our […]

1,000 People Learn to Play “Learn to Fly” by The Foo Fighters

This guy put together a cool thousand people to try and convince The Foo Fighters to come play Cesena, Italy. Regardless of what you think of The Foo Fighters this is really fucking cool! Hat tip to Chris Prunckle from Wannabe for the link.
