Tapes. My whole day was revolving around Bird Tapes’ 4 releases planned for this day. I was waiting just to be online at right time to be able to buy them, because I knew they will be gone really soon. And I was right. It did not last more then 40 minutes to sold out all tapes by Julia Brown and Teen Suicide. You can find all tapes on label’s bandcamp: http://birdtapes.bandcamp.com I have bought whole 4-combo package. The first tape is a new album “to be close to you” by brand new band Julia Brown from Maryland: http://cool.bandcamp.com/. Two members (Sam, Alec) are from dead band Teen Suicide, which has released also their demos on tape (the second tape). The third tape is by my favorites Pill Friends from Philadelphia. I was premiering one song from this EP on my soundcloud. The last tape is band High Pop I was sharing on my blog a while ago. I like their noisy, garage tunes and it will fit to my new collection of tapes. I am so happy that I have not missed the tapes and was able to order them. I will post photo of them, when they will arrive. I am so excited to lay them in my new tape player which I am collecting tomorrow. Today I was having shift in different Starbucks on Byward Street. I like people there and working with them is fun. Moreover I got more hours since I was sent to close another Starbucks in different area. So I was working in third Starbucks store since my start in Starbucks.Back homeI was skypeing with my friend Martin for more than three hours. We always talk about our plans, mainly about our future jobs. I have no idea what it will be, but I want to be involved with music. Maybe I will have some club or something like that. But my dream is to run a tape label, but I will be not able to earn money for living doing that. Though it is not a reason to stop working on my future label. I do not know how my future will look like, but I will do my best to fulfill my dreams.
Today I have taken no photos, so I choose instead of them few album art s(song art) by my favorite musicians. First one is from album “stumble pretty” by Infinity Crush (Caroline White from dead band Teen Suicide): http://infinitycrush.bandcamp.com/album/stumble-pretty. I really like her songs and I am listening to them everyday. Caroline is the best girl and musician I have ever met through internet and I always enjoy to chat with her. I wish I will meet her one day and will be hanging around with her in some cool place in Maryland. The second picture is cover art from upcoming album by Julia Brown: http://juliabrown09.tumblr.com/ It is brand new band with ex-members of Teen Suicide Sam Ray and Alec Simke and new member John Toohey. I had chance to listen to new album before it is released and I love it. They are already my favorite band of this year as Teen Suicide was my the most favorite band of 2012. The last picture is art for one of Julia Brown’s song and it will be released in zine coming together with the new album. These guys are influencing me a lot together with Ryan Wilson from Pill Friends or Mat Cothran from Coma Cinema/Elvis Depressedly or Spencer Radcliffe from Blithe Field. There are many other musicians and people who are so important for me even if I had no chance to meet them face to face. All these people are happy that I am doing my blog and I feel that I am doing the right thing. One day I will make festival in Slovakia and call all my music friends and it will be the best festival ever. But it will be not soon, so I have to go to USA to see them live. Maybe this summer I will travel there and spend there some time meeting all people I wish to see playing or just shake hands with them. My day at Starbucks is not worth mentioning, it was just crazy. In the evening I was skypeing with my brother, who told me that his shop is going pretty well and he had 16 customers today and made some money. I miss him a lot as well as my other siblings, especially my younger sister who is the best girl in the world. She is doing this great tumblr blog: http://teenagevillageunderground.tumblr.com/ I envy her a little bit because she is growing in different (kind of better) environment than I was, but I am not regretting who I become. Firstly I wanted to write this blog for others, but I have realized I am doing it for myself. I like doing a diary and trying to summarize my days. It is a good way how to clear your head and evaluate how I was spending my day.
hooray! you can now stream or download the full and finished versino of our new song ‘nobody’ via this rad rad 4 way split from topshelf. it features us, old gray, modern baseball, and the hundred acre woods. if you buy it all proceeds go to a charity. but here’s our song from it if you wanna check it out. it went up on 420 (as a live demo) a long time ago but this is the full band version. i couldn’t be happier with it. it’s also a love song in a very traditional and not dark sense so i’m happy it’s coming out today :)
i remember in the parking lot of walmart, watching a truck catch on fire - soon enough you were gone again. mystery is our curse, like in the fall i found out i’d been poisoned - two whole weeks gone.
summer spent with you at your parent’s house, came home and drove all the way to towson. one of you still owes me money; throwing up in the parking lot of walmart - wondering if i’d fall in love again.
yeah i’m a nobody but i’m yours
