Bands who deserve your attention

I added a new element to my sidebar called "Bands who deserve your attention". I get so many active bands asking me if I want to review their stuff and I don't really do that since I mainly post 'dead' bands here, but I still feel like some of the bands are so amazing they definitely deserve some kind of recognition. So, if you have a band or you know a really cool band or something feel free to mail me and if I like the tunes enough I'll add a link to the list.

Three Letter Engagement


Mid 90s emo band from Goleta CA. Similar to bands like Christie Front Drive. I could not find much about this band but their sound is amazing. Not sure if the demo is from 1996 or 1997.

Her Breath On Glass

Live CDR (2009)
Love.Life (compilation) (2009)
Leave Nothing But Footprints, Take Nothing But Photographs - Chapter I - I Found Myself in Austin, Texas, Bail Split (2011)

Her Breath On Glass is a two-piece emo/screamo/really intense and nice-to-listen-to band from Boston, Massachusetts. Their vocals are super intense and heart breaking. Features members from the Saddest Landscape. 

This is probably the most complete discography you can find on the internet from them. Although there are two records missing; love.life compilation song, and the three-way split with I found myself in Austin, Texas/Bail/Her Breath on Glass. If you have any of these please share
The band is btw also still active so if you like their stuff please buy it and support the labels who release their records!

Pygmy Lush

Bitter River (2007)
Mount Hope (2008)
Untitled (2008)
Split w/ Turbo Slut (2009)
Old Friends (2011)
Cold World/Guilt (2011)


I wanted to post this band ever since I heard of them but since I'm a lazy typist I didn't post them, until now! I present you the entire Pygmy Lush discography! In case you haven't heard of Pygmy Lush before (shame on you!) they're a folk/indie band from Sterling, Virginia. The band was formed by ex-pg.99 members and are accompanied by other band members that were in bands such as City of Caterpillar, Majority Rule and Malady. I don't think I've come across a band lately that gives me chills like Pygmy Lush does and I have no words to properly describe them. Just listen to them and you'll understand what I'm talking about.

I Have Dreams

Three Days 'Til Christmas (1999)

I Have Dreams was one of the finest screamo bands around in the 90s. They were born from the ashes of the band New Ethic, after their guitar player Daniel died in a car accident. I Have Dreams were more than a band - in the words of Mike Peters (vocals): “It was an attempt to cope with the pain everyone was feeling after Daniel’s death.”  They were together for roughly six months, and they broke up in the Spring of 1999.

Heart On My Sleeve

Stand-By, We’re Going In For Life 10'' (2012)
Cavalcades, Coma Regalia, Heart on my Sleeve 10’’ split (2013)
Totem Skin Split (2014)

Heart On My Sleeve are a new started amazing female fronted screamo band from Stockholm, Sweden, with former members of Followed by 37 seconds of happiness and The Hope & The Failure.

This is a re-post. The band just released their split with состояние птиц and it's amazing. I've also seen them live (it was their first show!) and that was even more amazing. Except for the band playing amazingly good, they're also amazingly sincere and nice people. Hoping for an European tour soon.
