Neur – is an indie band out of New Brunswick, NJ….Very much a gritty sound, and even Post/Core at times, here is Neur off their untitled EP with “Gold Thimble”

Matthew Solberg

There’s something unique about Matt Solberg of St. Louis, Mo. His style of finger-picking is gorgeous and although not made for Pop, he minces with it well. Here is Matthew Solberg off of his 2011 self-titled release…. this is “Petrified”

Be The Ant

Flatline Symphony

Hailing from Dover Delaware, Flatline Symphony have a sort of Armor For Sleep or Pierce The Veil feel… Though I’m personally don’t enjoy the vocal performance, I can still respect it as well as the phenomenal accompanying instrumentation – Off their release, “This Is What They Call Surgery”, here is Flatline Symphony “Remedial Plagiarism”

The Broken Orchestra

    Great Podcast Brian. Besides Penny Blacks, I don’t think I’ve heard of any of these bands. Not really a track on here that I didn’t enjoy. Thanks and looking forward to the next one.

    Nice mash-up of unknowns for me. Here’s my “review” if you will. ;-)
    Meekos& Me: Not for me, but I can feel the California influenced melodies.
    Neur: Really appreciated this one. Nice post core with a slight side of pop/punk influence there.
    Mathew S: Not for me, but I can def appreciate the solid finger work on the git-fiddle.
    Broken O: Couldn’t get into it… fast forward.
    Gees: Great production, enjoyed the beasts, but he needs a mentor and some better lyrics.
    Be the Ant: LOVED IT! sweet harmonies, with a whole big band meets arena rock meets beck meets ringling bros circus. LOVED IT!
    Vains of Jenna: Decent cover of a classic. Well done.
    Rose of Jericho: Great fem vocals, a bit on the simple side for me, but overall, worth the listen.
    Penny Blacks: Nope… sorry… I’m not feeling it… decent guitarist, poor production and a lil too pitchy at times on the vocals.
    Flatline Symphony: meh… im with you on the vocals… u cant sing a whole song through a filter and get me on board.
    Broken O: Give’n em a second chance… I like the smooth horns and the fan sticks on the snare… but that’s about it. Just can’t get on the train man…

    Thank you for puttin’ this one together man. I will def be adding some Neur and Be the Ant to my playlist. ;-)
