Punk Rock Alert!

    Musically I am stuck in the 90’s, and with my wife home on maternity leave, she is quick to send me text messages from the first floor of our home (I work on the 3rd floor) mocking me out with comments like “1998 all day”.  Like Metallica once said, “Sad but true”.  My roots have always been punk rock, and for that genre, I find that there aren’t too many new bands worth listening to. The “Heartsounds” are an exception to that opinion.  This band is awesome, straight up.  I blogged way back about their album “Drifter”, which was my intro album to this band; blogging about how great I thought the album was.  Members of this band, (formally the band “Light this City”) started Heartsounds to pursue their love for punk music.  “Light this City” was more new metal, a genre that isn’t easy to separate yourself from other bands (a polite way of saying that it all sounds the same and is mostly shit), however, even “Light this City” has flashes of makes Heartsounds a great band.  The guitar work is incredibly solid, reminding me of bands like “No Use for a Name” with the composition complexity of “Lagwagon”.  If you were a fan of early 90’s punk music, this band is phenomenal. Their new album is looking to be no different.  They have leaked 3 songs (that I know of) off their upcoming October 15th album, “Internal Eyes”, and each one is more awesome than the next.  These days, I rarely sit around anticipating the release date of a new record, but this one I eagerly await.

Here are the 2 songs off “Internal Eyes” that they have released to wet the pallet:

If you enjoy listening to music from the glory days and can’t really crank it up anymore because of an infant, your infant might as well listen with you while it wears this:

A Serious Addition to Our Toddler Shirts.

   I am excited to start doing black toddler shirts.  The focus for the first part of 2013 has been expanding our toddler shirts section.  What a way to kick it off by adding a bad ass straight edge toddler shirt.  I still chuckle at little kids wearing straight edge shirts.  I mean, of course they are drug free, otherwise their parents should be arrested!  With all of that said, I present to you:

These are now available in our Etsy and eBay stores and will be up on the main site in a few days.  Don’t let your little one leave the house without looking super intense!

Long weekend…

    This weekend was pretty exhausting.  Nicole and I went to Rochester for a show that we had never done before.  You live and learn with these things.  This show wasn’t promoted very well, and there was heavy rain with strong winds.  It was not a good turnout but it was still fun to be out with people and getting feedback.  I’m excited for the Mayday Underground show. This will be our second time doing this show, and it was fantastic last year.
    I just put in an order for new supplies.  Sitting at the show over the weekend gave me an opportunity to brainstorm.  I am going to be doing a Straightedge baby onesie.  It is such a stupid concept that I got really excited.  Hopefully I will have them in time for the November 5th show! I will keep you posted on the status of the Straightedge Baby Onesie!
