Here are two out of four songs that i've recently released on an EP entitled, "Before the Gold Rush.

 hope you enjoy, and I look forward to all your criticisms and other words regarding the matter.

Again, thanks for taking the time out of your day to listen to these songs and give feedback.

Below will be four links to which you can d/l each track.

Hey, my band is about to put out a full length record. I'm really psyched about the new members of the band, and how well we're playing live.
If you're on facebook, go check out our page. We'll have much more updates there, and you can hear the new stuff as soon as we put it up.

I'm finally getting the masters for this thing, one track at a time, so I thought i'd post a few tunes here.

Enjoy.

I'm liking the way these are coming out. "First Hymn" is a really good song.
Now you're in the *spoiler* place.

Very nice, the production value is really high.

I think your vocalist would sound much better with more processing though (perhaps to make him sound more distant/reverbish) or he needs to dial back the growling a bit. His close-to-the-mic raw vocal kind of clashes with the rest of your sound.

Oh my... I thought he was the guitarist! Maybe he's both.

Ha. don't worry about it, I do play guitar as well, but I'm not the lead player.  As I've said, I'm very proud of these songs and this band.  I genuinely respect JB's opinion, and the fact that he's nice enough to take the time and not only listen, but provide his opinion. Furthermore I know he's always honest and his intentions are meant to be constructive, or at least he's been that way with me, so I don't take it personally. 
I appreciate all of your creative palettes, or at least those of you whose ideas are out there, on this site or otherwise, so don't worry about it.  I'm definitely not a great singer.  Here's the master to a song I received today, with less growl coincidentally.

Thanks for taking that the right way. I love a lot of things in your voice, and I think it could be amazing if it were given a tasteful effect and blended a bit. (Don't ask me how to do that.) The rawness is sometimes a little startling in the mix, that's all.

I'm with Polka... I became strangely attached to "First Hymn." I've listened to it 3 or 4 times.

Edit: links to purchase this album under 10$.

Bandcamp

iTunes

Amazon mp3 (do people use this)?

it's also available lots of other places, but i'm not sure if anyone makes use of those other services.

Cheers, and thanks again for supporting independent art.

This is a revised version of a song that i've posted before.  A few of you had some relevant criticisms towards it, which caused me to launch into a sarcastic rant attempting to justify it, which was silly and I probably had polka delete.  I think it speaks for itself and I'm proud of the tune itself, so I hope you enjoy it and I hope 2014 is going well so far for all of you.

A friend showed up to one our shows with his t3i, and took some footage. This has on board sound, so whatever.
Figured I would share it here.
Hope all's well in xixax land and otherwise!
