Hey there – you looking for a raucous show to let loose, catch some new local bands and support a sweet cause? Of course you are, so get yerself over to O’Brien’s in Allston for this fundraiser show for the upcoming FMLY Fest Boston. FMLY is a decentralized national network of nice folk who like to share knowledge, support each other, and celebrate life through arts and crafts.
-Writeup by The Boston Hassle on tonight’s FMLY Fest benefit show in Allston with Designer, Cult & Leper, Ronnie Nordac, and The Dirty Dirges. As of now we have a budget of $17, so come help us pay those stinking building deposits and make this three-day DIT manifestation a reality. RSVP here.
This is from a show Madeline played with me in Eau Claire about a week before I moved. Follow her cassette label Tinyamp.
raining @ d beach
early morning for it cause i’m hitting the road to chicago for CAKE!
Give Mimi a hug from me at CAKE-!
mat, along with a select few other people, is one of the main forces in my life that keeps me writing & trying. even without knowing him personally, he’d still inspire me the same way. albums like this one don’t come along very often, and almost never on such a personal level. the first time i heard it it made me realize all over again that people i know personally are capable of creating really lasting, amazing, masterful works of art. it made me think maybe i’ll be able to do that too someday.
so yeah mat leaked his album and it’s amazing & you need to hear it.
HT: No good words can describe the depth at which your heart will feel this, but I will try. Coma Cinema has eviscerated the boundary of a inside and outside, delivering his melancholic melody to an emotional site within which had you never heard his music before you would have never known to have existed. He has given us all something which is without value because at last this music is truly discoverable, new (to him and ourselves), infinite in its revealing of a broader and more felt human experience.
You might feel a little sting.

I have a really vivid memory of pulling into the driveway with my mom at thirteen and asking her to listen to ‘Does He Love You?’ I gave her my earbuds and about halfway through she started to cry and we held hands. Getting misty thinking about it. I also remember hearing that story about Jenny Lewis recording ‘I Never’ naked for the first time and then going home and belting it in my undies before bed. I cannot believe I was 13 when that record came out, v formative for me.

realhotbitch asked: Where might I find the lyrics to Mateo? I love your music and am keeping track of your stuff/spreading the word about you :)
hi, thank u! these are the lyrics:
my heart’s in two, i’m afraid of you/i woke up to the frame of you
i thought i found a place with you/i made my mark, i’m away from you
my heart’s in two, i had to choose/i woke up to a shame from you
apology, try to see the future that’s ahead of me
