Band: Delo Truda
The main reason I'm posting this is because this band is still young, despite it's formation in 2008, and still a lot of people haven't even heard about them. Give them a try, you won't regret it!

"¡Corea es bueno!" as one of their local fans would say. Corea is (obviously) from Spain, I'm pretty sure they are still together. Before I heard their music, I saw a live picture of them showing one of the members playing a synthesizer. At that moment I knew I would love these guys. And in fact they do rule, they play a post-rocky brand of screamo, if your a fan of long build ups and cool background tones, you will probably enjoy Corea. They have done a few Europe tours, I'm not sure if they have done any America tours yet. Plain and simple, check these guys out, especially if your a fan of Envy. If your not a fan of Envy, do it anyway. You can read more about them on their myspace, if you know Spanish.

CMHWAK Launch Contest - Win an OOP 7"
Alright, posers. We're going to start this off right. I have an extremely underrated out-of-print Fieldtree "Fleas in his Collar" seven inch on Winter Records from 1995. I'll mail this out to the winner of a little CMHWAK contest. I made the original form of this contest way too complicated. So now it's as simple as this:
1) Get a Blogger account and click that "FOLLOW" button to the right.
I'll put the names into a list and randomize it. Then I'll mail this record anywhere to the reader who wins. No duplicate accounts.
This contest will close on November 10 2010 at midnight. Tell your friends, reblog, etc. The more people that participate, the more I'll be inclined to do future contests.

Revisit: Arroyo Seco
Despite this being just a demo tape, this is superb stuff, with specific and extremely melodic 90' emo tone followed with quite chaotic vocals. Six songs with roughly 20 minutes of tunes and an excellent booklet with lyrics. Only this demo was recorded, although there are rumors on the internet that there was a scheduled Arroyo Seco/The Pine split, with songs that never saw the light of day. But let us not be greedy and just enjoy this masterpiece.

Interview: Will Killingsworth
Will Killingsworth is a prolific musician who has shared his talents in Orchid, Bucket Full of Teeth, Ampere, Failures, and Vaccine. The following is the result of an interview with Will Killingsworth that I did in April of 2008 for a now out-of-print zine. Enjoy.
"I've been using the same guitar for about the past ten years now, which is a GIbson SG from the 90's that someone before me modified with a new pickguard which enables it to hold regular P-90 pick ups. I've just realized recently how important the P-90s are to the sound I've been getting for years, and that their clarity has allowed me to get away with some of the more dissonant/weird chords I use sometimes and have it not sound like mud. So, getting the guitar with them in it was really a happy accident I feel. That guitar was used for every track on Orchid, Bucket Full of Teeth, and Failures records. For Ampere I usually use the SG on one track and then a Gibson S1 from the 70s on another track, it has a thinner, cleaner sound, that really lets the notes shine through, but on it's own can be a little weak sounding.
For amps, I've gone through several changes, so I guess I'll go through them in stages....
