Listen: Old Gray – “An Autobiography”
Old Gray, emo outfit from New Hampshire, after countless EPs and splits are finally releasing a debut LP titled An Autobiography. This LP as expected has heart-wrenching lyrics and is full of twinkly guitar melodies as right from the get go they proved their worth with their initial Demo. The album is available to stream below and after two hundred preorders of the 12″ record it will be available for free download. An Autobiography is being released through Broken World Media and for the European fans by Dog Knight Productions at a later date. You can watch a live performance of Her Tongue Was Tattooed On The Back Of Her Teeth from their previous EP Do I Dare Disturb The Universe below.
Topshelf Records’ V-Day Charity Four-Way Split
Cam Boucher, of Old Gray’s words about this release. “With all of our respective bands currently working to promote records of our own, we thought it would be nice to come together and try to use any attention that we’ve recieved as bands to help give back to the community.”
The split is available to purchase now on Topshelf Record’s Bandcamp page with downloads being sent out at 4pm EST on Valentine’s Day. I recommend buying this release as the proceeds go to a good cause, and of course you get new tracks from amazing bands.
Listen: Professor O’blivion – Demo 2012
This demo is exactly what I had hoped it would be: it’s creative and very experimental. The intro to the demo has the same kind of vibe as Old Gray‘s track “Instrumental”, even though the music overall doesn’t have the same Old Gray pop/emo feel. Professor O’blivion has a very heavy sound that is really raw, but in no way is it trashy noise-rock. They use a very deep bass, which in my opinion really rounds out and enhances the flow of the songs. The drums are sick and Patrick is a pretty hardcore drummer. Together, they equally create this hip underground sound that is Professor O’blivion.
The new demo is currently available for free on the band’s Bandcamp or you can stream it below. Be sure to also check out Patrick’s side project BlackWindom.
