Topic:Music Recommendations??
by: bedshaped1987
Jan. 2, '08 3:59pm
Hey guys, I'm an avid music lover and I'm constantly trying to look out for new music out there. My taste is very eclectic, but mostly in rock, alternative, indie, hard, classic. I wanted to know you guys had any recommendations for any new bands to check out???

I'd like to share one i found on myspace the other day. They're called The Black Summer Crush. Not many people heard of them, but I’m going to head out to one of their shows to check them out. If you like to see a blend of the Beatles with The Who and Jimi Hendrix, they’re a band to check out

i've heard of black summer crush, from what i remember they weren't all that bad. i'll be sure to check out Scientific Lifestyle, they sound interesting.

i recommend one of my favorite artists, Rachel McGoye. not too sure if it something you'd like listening to, but i like it so thats all that matters, lol j/k! she's very Fiona Apple meets Colibe Caillat. my favorite song is "Walk Away"

These bands are awesome that you are recommending. I like Black Summer Crush.
But one want to participate and recommend a couple of girls called Karmina, these girls rock! This one song that they released called the Kiss is amazing. You just gota listen.

Ashley Tisdale's new album "Guilty Pleasure" is pretty good. I read somewhere that she's having a competition and the grand prize is a meet and greet with her. I'm totally entering if it's true.

Do you have a link to your songs then? Since you rave so much about yourself.
by: patman
Aug. 22, '09 9:46am
low-tech boy was gonna respond to the other thread and say he'd listen to that song exzcept his speakers aren't even working. Think it's related to this magic jack fella. not enough hours in a day 4 me. i did play 2 open mics though.

Can't begin to tell you how frustrated (read pissed off) i am that i don't have time or $ to figure out tech stuff.
by: patman
Aug. 22, '09 10:02am
Does anyone know anyone around here that could help me with tech stuff for a reasonable fee? And while i'm at it is anyone interested in co-writing songs with me? i get so many ideas for songs it's crazy. i have near zero credibility (which doesn't mean no talent) a real ground floor opportunity.

Dreams are real


in them we feel...

There is always something

i have to do


i can do something else.

There is always something
