So i know it's been a very long time since my last post, and i know a lot of the links are dead, sorry. Hopefully I'll get back in the swing of updating this. But here's a band that i love so much and my love for their music translated into a need to share it with all of you. There's really no information on this band, but they wrote a four song ep which is absolutely incredible. The guitar tone is perfect, not to mention the guitar playing, the singing and lyrics are great, and the drumming only comes in when absolutely necessary. This may not be for everyone, especially the people who really enjoyed the M Blanket or Cedar of Lebanon posts. But you should definitely download this if you like pretty music. To me it sounds like a poppier/happier version of american football.
Download their EP "Text Messages" off of their website:

M Blanket was an emo band from from Victoria, BC, Canada that was formed by Dave Wenger (Daddy`s Hands and Ache Hour Credo). They released two 7”s titled “Safety” (STB 001) and “Seen It Coming” (STB 006) both released by Slow To Burn Records.
They also made an appearance on the 12” compilation “Farmhouse Compilation 94” put out by Farmhouse Records and “Fuck the Commonwealth - 22 Bands From Ontario and BC That Hate the Queen!” compilation.
They were active from 1992-1995.
They are quickly becoming one of my favorite bands. I haven't really gotten into ache hour credo yet, and i can't find anything by daddy's hands, but I just keep listening to these songs over and over again. Really catchy emo/hardcore that sounds pretty much like Jawbreaker, but with better lyrics. You can download everything here, and read the lyrics off of the records: M Blanket
Seen It Coming 7" (1993)
Safety 7" (1994)

Everyone Asked About You were an emo band from Little Rock, AR. They had a female vocalist which made their music even more pretty. Really great music and the lyrics are good as well. I wish this band had made more music, and apparently they had an LP which was never released.
Sometimes My Memory Fails Me Sometimes 7"
from last.fm: The Kossabone Red were an Atlanta, Georgia band that existed from 1996 to 1998. Sonically, The Kossabone Red were a good mixture of Cap’n Jazz-inspired emo and catchy spastic hardcore. Members went on or have been in bands such bands as Portrait, Some Soviet Station, The Paper Lions, Electrosleep International, and Airoes.
Their only album was a Self-Titled CD/LP put out by Conspiracy Records. This LP is the only record left in print by the band. They also released two 7”, one on Ripcord (1997) and one on Insurance scam (1996).
Definitely lots of cap'n jazz sound here, tons of energy and sloppy instrumentation. I'd recommend starting with the LP, it is my personal favorite, and the 7"s have a different sound to them.
Failure and Departure 7" (1996)
Ignition / Atrophy 7"
S/T LP (1998)

For Serious This Time is an indie rock band from New York. They play catchy, sometimes jammy songs with cool vocal melodies that will get stuck in your head for days. This is their first release as a full band, and it is fantastic, especially the track "No Snow."
