Hey ya’ll. It’s Dennis Scanland bringing you another week of tasty pop/rock morsels for you to devour. Yes, this is my favorite indie genre that’s why this episode is a little longer than others.
- Seasons – Medications (Completely Removed)
- Canada – Communipaw (Communipaw)
- We Will Make A Song Destroy – Rogue Wave (Permalight)
- The Video Dept. – The Radio Dept. (Clinging to a scheme)

- Take it Easy – Surfer Blood (Astro Coast)

OK, this week I’m bringing you a video that’s more about the actual video than the music contained within. Philip Bloom is a photographer/filmmaker/Director and he completed a project of filming/shooting via stop motion the days and night of Dubai. It is captivating. The music is from a girl that goes by Tryad. The song is “I See” and it’s very fitting to the visuals you are about to experience. Enjoy…
Toronto’s Dearly Beloved have just released their debut album, Make It Bleed on Zoe. A great alt-indie-rock sound. We asked singer/bassist Rob Higgins what music was on his playlist right now. Read more
For nearly 15 years, The Emo Diaries has been Deep Elm’s way of documenting an extraordinary and powerful style of music that possesses the ability to stir emotion like no other. The Emo Diaries has introduced over 135 incredible bands including Jimmy Eat World, The Appleseed Cast, This Drama, Further Seems Forever (featuring Chris Carrabba of Dashboard Confessional), Planes Mistaken For Stars, The Movielife and many more to fans wordwide. All songs are exclusive and unreleased, making each chapter of The Emo Diaries a true compilation, not a sampler of previously released music. Bands are selected to participate based on open, blind submissions of their music. Only the music matters, not who the band is…and that’s the way it should be.
The Emo Diaries unofficially came to rest in 2004 with its tenth chapter. Deep Elm cited the bastardization of the term “emo” in pop culture, as well as mainstream’s stranglehold and subsequent commercialization of the genre, which placed the focus squarely on the aesthetic…not the music, the energy or the passion. But then in 2007, Deep Elm re-opened its doors to the genre they helped to document and expose to the world. The scene heralded the release of Chapter 11 “Taking Back What’s Ours” and fans have been asking for another chapter ever since.
Submission for Chapter 12 is open to any artist, signed or unsigned, throughout the world (http://www.deepelm.com/submit). There is no cost to participate and selected bands will be informed all details including worldwide promotion, publicity, marketing, distribution and royalties. Submission will close when the label has selected 12 songs for worldwide release.
