Possibly one of my favorite bands ever. With lyrics that bring up alot of questions and also challenge all the right issues. I hope you all enjoy this album as much as I have for the last few years.

Embrace was a short-lived post-hardcore band from Washington, D.C., which lasted from the summer of 1985 to the spring of 1986 and was influential in the creation of emotive hardcore. The band included Ian MacKaye of Minor Threat with three former members of his brother Alec's band The Faith: guitarist Michael Hampton, drummer Ivor Hanson, and bassist Chris Bald. The only recording released by the quartet was their self-titled album Embrace.

Following the breakup of Embrace, MacKaye rejoined former Minor Threat drummer Jeff Nelson to form Egg Hunt. Bald moved on to the band Ignition, and drummer Ivor Hanson paired up with Hampton again in 1992 for Manifesto.

During the band's formative years, some fans started referring to their and fellow innovators Rites of Spring's music as emocore, a term vocalist Ian MacKaye publicly disagreed with

Small Brown BIke

I forgot how good they are, and how good their lyrics are. Dead reckoning is an amazing album to get you through a rut.

All of the lyrics on this album are amazingly written. Just what I needed today, and lately.

This album is definitely one of my top 10's of all time.

Definitely download it, and listen to it.

it's what I've asked for, it's what I've needed

It's 6:30 in the morning, I haven't slept all night, and don't know if I plan to. There's something more delightful in thinking about having a few interesting nights of stories, adventures, no sleep, and friends. As apposed to going to sleep now, and starting a habit of a rediculous schedule.

These times of the morning are by far my favorite, when I have chased off all of my insecurities, screaming at them until my voice and my eyes are dry. Until I can look out the window a second longer before drowning back into my thought process. When I take a second to remember how much I appreciate my eyes. When the sun hasn't built up any steam at all, and the streets glow orange halo's that grow past the building tops. The heavy forever deep ocean sky just waits, and slowly moves in to put the street lights to bed. Patience will get you anywhere.

Then I come back to this chair, back to this head of mine, back to some words. A phone call and a book. Another layer.

My curtains are thinning out. I'm tired, but I always try to convince myself that I'm up for another day of fighting the world. Sometimes it works.

What keeps me drawn to you, is knowing that I can never share all of the things I have ever considered beautiful, all of the things that I have seen and buried in the deepest sands of my chest, all of these things that make me feel like I could burst. What keeps me right here is knowing that I can never share it with anyone, but I'm hoping you would like to stick around, and wait for me to try.

The Mall

The Mall was an Oakland/San Francisco based band that broke up last year after only releasing one album. You may know them as the first music to ever be set to the Mash SF commercial that circulated heavily around the internet and the flashy side of bike culture for a while. Well, they finally put out the video a while ago, but years after the first commercial. Regardless, I don't want to get into a long rant on why I hate bike culture at this point, I really don't see the point. The Mall's one release though was VERY good, in a kind of japanther meets matt and kim meets some kind of basement lo-fi dance thrash type way.

Anyway, I uploaded it tonight for someone, and it's really worth a listen if you have some distinct taste.
