hey guys
wow this place is super dead-i hope we can revive it somehow!

i thought i'd share that i'm going to bangalore, india in two months for a couple of months....i hear it has a very vibrant rock scene and am really excited to experience it.  i know rock has been hitting mainstream Bollywood even a  little more now so it'll be interesting to see a few shows there.  Bangalore is also dubbed the pub capital of the world and supposedly has a lot of grungy/rock bars which should be cool.

anyways hope you guys start posting more again :(

4:09 pm - new song at Part Time Songs


Life changes, fast sometimes. Brilliant ideas fail, progress is lost, chaos and stability fight each other, with chaos coming out slightly ahead. Careful planning for the unknown might help. If it doesn't help, at least it keeps us busy, thinking, occupied awaiting the next change.

9:09 am - okay, it isn't rock... but....

My friend Prita is a singer. We met in our crappy hometown of Orlando, FL through a mutual friend and she's currently living in Montreal and making music. She just put out an LP. It's a poppy sound. She started out less poppy and more.. folk-y? While the sound is poppy, the songs themselves are very emotional. The clips on her website don't quite do the songs justice. I have been a big supporter of her music, but when I heard the clips of her EP, I hesitated to give her feedback, because I thought I would not like her new sound. But I got a copy of her EP from her mom, and have been listening to it non-stop! If any of you have been searching for an indian artist you can relate to and if you actually like pop and rnb... (I was so excited when I heard about Raghav and Jay Sean for the simple fact that they were desi... but then I heard their music..) check her out! Myspace link: http://www.myspace.com/pritarocks
or her website.

She's unique and talented. And I might be slightly biased because I'm her friend, but I've been listening to her EP nonstop for three days, so it can't ALL be my bias. For reference, the music I like is stuff like John Legend, Tracy Chapman, India Arie, Jewel, Fiona Apple...
If you like stuff like that, you might like Prita. Her EP is titled Spread the Word. If you know anyone who might be into her... SPREAD THE WORD.

11:15 pm - new song at Part Time Songs


I was playing around with a free VST synth and came up with the bassline for this one first, and built everything else around that. The lyrics came really easily after that. It's a short one but I like it. At first my idea was to have a few different song snippets with the theme of the sky, but I've just got this one right now.

As an aside, I'm turning 30 next weekend and I think it'd be cool if the Facebook Part Time Songs page could reach 30 fans by then. We're already up at 27, so if you're on Facebook and haven't "fanned" me, feel free to do so!

9:38 pm - new song at Part Time Songs


An instrumental I’ve had running through my head for days that I had to get out. Photo courtesy of my wife. Tonight, I feel like it evokes thoughts of Obama’s inauguration. Perhaps because it’s tomorrow.

just a reminder, this forum doesn't have to be exclusively about music. you can post whatever, shit talk, anything you want really. i've met some pretty amazing kids through this thing and i'd like that trend to continue :) have you all been to any shows lately? the last really good show i went to was caithlin de marrais (former rainer maria) and owen. that and the revival tour with tom gabel, tim barry, chuck ragan, kevin seconds, etc.

found another taqwacore vid:

I know she's not rock, but hey she's brown and has some fame going on...

What do you guys think of M.I.A.?

I watched the Pineapple Express trailer and heard "Paper Planes".
She's pretty wild. I like it.
