This is a re-post from my wife Jessica’s blog since she writes more eloquently than I do. My friends Tyler and Pete are in this band and I completely agree with her… this album is super good and you should snag it for $5. Tell them Jesse sent you!! ——- It’s been a while since I’ve been this excited about a new album. My good friend Tyler let me get a sneak listen to Have You Seen My Prefrontal Cortext? from his band A Great Big Pile of Leaves(AGBPOL). It’s a stellar album, especially if you dig the likes of Nightmare of You
's kookiness. I'll have a more comprehensive review up next week, but we're two weeks out from the release date on June 22nd, so I wanted to post about their awesome pre-sale. They are selling their album for FIVE BUCKS here and also selling a sweet package of t-shirt, album, and lunchbox. Yeah, a lunchbox. I hope you dig this trio; Tyler let me post one of their songs up on my tumblr, called “We Don’t Need Our Heads,” so if you have a moment take a listen and then let me know what you think!! I’ve been playing this album repeatedly for the past week. I’m still trying to perfect all the “oh oh ohs” throughout some of the songs so next time I see them live I can keep up. Let’s have it: what do you think of the song? Like it enough to pre-order?
So, a long time ago(10+ years), Matt and I used to play together in a band from Richmond, VA called Submerge. We mostly played reginional shows in Virginia, but we did a couple of tours. That’s actually how we met Josh and Justin, on one of our first tours. But that’s not the point of me mentioning any of this. Back in those days, we used to play a lot of shows with a band named Lazycain. Their drummer was Dan Duggins. If you haven’t heard about what Dan has been going through lately, then go here:
Matt and I have toyed with the idea of doing a reunion show for awhile now, and with Dan’s situation that has gone down, we decided now is the time. So, on June 18th at Strange Matter in Richmond, VA, Submerge is reuniting for a night to benefit our friend Dan in his time of need. Other old Richmond bands Fun Size (members later went on to be in River City High) and Sau( Jon Sullivan of Jack’s Mannequin) will also be reuniting for the occasion. It’s going to be a great night for a great cause. There will be a presale for this show, stay tuned for more details soon.
