short post.

so the new dear landlord tracks sound a lot like off with their heads.

i see no problems with this at all.

i am sick, unexpectedly, and as a result, i am on a weird schedule, and awake too early and listening to metal.

i'm vaguely hoping the vibrations/aggression up my immune system.

things i'm jamming:

at the gates - slaughter of the soul
like "the real thing" by fnm(which turns 20 today?), this album is responsible for a legion of terrible bands. regardless, it still fucking rules.

hellchild - most of their discography
this is a band that i feel doesn't get nearly enough love. their side of their split with converge is fucking epic, and the rest of their material is also awesome. the vocals blow me away everytime(the guy is now in SWARRRM! who are also worth your time). they kind of sound like european metalcore, early heaven shall burn/caliban style stuff, but with more guts.

also, the first hope conspiracy album. i miss that band(yes, i know they're not broken up, it's still not the same.)

hopefully i'll be feeling better for the hold steady tomorrow.

dear nana grizol

your record was one of the records i would put on when i was feeling really great, or really down in alaska, and it would improve both moods. seeing you live tonight in a tiny garage with a bunch of charming folk was fucking amazing. the encore made my life.("circles 'round the moon", and "motion in the ocean", two of my favorite songs ever).

thank you, thank you, thank you.

also, to whoever made the veggie burgers and fries, they were fucking delicious.

much love, kids.
