Seminal punk label Dischord’s entire catalog is now free online

“Free” is a bold headline, as it’s pay-what-you-can and the money does go to the artists. Definitely worth checking out. Some of my favorite bands of all time.

🎵 Wand - Laughing Matter

Really digging this new album. For fans of older, fuzzy Radiohead.

Announcing 7-Day Music Club

I’m pleased to announce a new project I am launching with a few long-time music loving friends: 7-Day Music Club.

The premise: we feel that the current digital age of music has not only damaged the album as a collection of songs, but our relationship to it and the artist. That feeling of holding the album in hand, pouring over the lyric sheets and inserts, and repeated/focused listens – are all a thing of the past for many people.

Our plan: 7-Day Music Club is a community that will celebrate albums as a social, shared experience through focused listening and storytelling. Each week we will focus on one crucial album from our collection to encourage a deep, 7-day focused listening session and conversation.

Our full site – including a blog, newsletter, and message board – will launch in early May. Visit today to sign up for our newsletter and be notified when we launch!

Song Exploder: Sharon Van Etten

Such a great episode from one of my favorite artists.

Got my copy of 3 Feet High and Rising today. So amazing! Transported back to my early teenage years when it first came out — the whole album has held up very well. 🎵

🎵 Nilüfer Yanya - Miss Universe

So good.

Earth Crisis at Kendzies in Lockport. Probably 1996.

H2O at Blind Mellon’s in 1996-ish: think they opened for Sick of it All. So good!

Hot Water Music: Cleveland Hardcore Fest ‘95. Blew me away.

Head over to @noechodotnet today to see a collection of my photos from the 90s hardcore scene. (Pictured: Autumn at Lost Horizon in Syracuse)

Check out some of my photos from the 90’s hardcore scene in Western New York and surrounding areas! More here.

Another fave from the 90s: Mineral at the Detroit Hardcore Fest (1996?)

Maggie Rogers | House Of Strombo - YouTube

Great interview and a couple acoustic songs, including a Whitney Houston cover.

Added some new photos to my band photo Flickr album. Most are mid to late 90s punk and hardcore bands.

‘This is Not the End’ by Spielbergs

Musical crush for the day.
