Music Monday - Jonesin' / The Dream Is Dead

(click to download for free)

I ordered this 7" a few months back when I was ordering a Joyce Manor/Summer Vacation split 7", for the sole reason that I thought the cover art was cool. The art is by Lubrano of Righteous Indignation (he also lends guest vocals on this record, and has his own band called Iron Chic who I'll post soon...) You don't see a lot of punk bands with gruff vocals using illustrations for their covers, especially not fun bright cartoony art. Usually, cover art for releases that sound like this use some old grainy photograph that's been rendered unrecognizeable by photocopying (or an approximation in photoshop) with some minimal text. I'm not saying there's anything wrong with that approach, but it's refreshing to see a non-wacky band trying something different.


Music Monday - John Cota / DEMO 2009

I like this recording a lot. I have no idea what they are screaming about, and love that the songs are just titled with their place in the order on the recording (1,2,3,4 & 5). I somehow wound up with two copies of their tape, so I'll mail the extra one to the first person to email me! Along with some other fun stuff! Who doesn't like fun stuff!?

Next Project: 100 Dinosaur Scavenger Hunt

(click to enter)


1. I will paint 100 Dinosaurs.

2. These dinosaur paintings will vary in size. Some will be 4"x4" canvases, others will be larger.

3. As I complete the dinosaur paintings, I will hide them in various locations. There will be clues left on this site leading to them.

4. Sometimes the clue will lead to another clue. A string of these clues will lead you to a painting.

5. The paintings are yours to keep! Please contact me at xadamdx@gmail.com when the painting has been removed from the location, so that I can cross off the clue to keep others from looking for the same painting.
