What's the best thing you've heard recently? Me? Ending People. Hands down. Best thing I've heard in a while. In fact, I'm harboring a pretty unhealthy obsession with this band right now. The new record, Fill Your Lungs, is painfully-short, just six songs long, and I've been listening to it on endle ... More >>
TITWRENCH 2012 @ GLOB | 7/27/12 It felt like the summer broke just in time for Titwrench 2012, and when things got kicked off a bit after 8 p.m. on Friday night, the climate inside Glob suited the music of opening act, Cardinal Veil.
