The Unblinking Ear Podcast 3/26/15

While the promotional cycle for Serious Rockers has ended (but you can certainly still purchase it!), Unblinking Ear Records is proud to announce some new projects:

  • A 7" from Big Quiet (who have their cassette release show this Saturday at Pet Rescue)
  • A 5-song cassette from Kerbivore (who just had their Serious Rockers track "peer reviewed")
  • And whatever this nonsense is:


All should be ready by the summer if not sooner. In the meantime, enjoy this podcast which yields me no monetary benefit.

The Unblinking Ear Podcast 3/12/15

In atypical altruistic style, I've this new edition of the Unblinking Ear Podcast with nothing to plug in junction with its posting. Serious Rockers: An Unblinking Ear Mixtape, praised as "28 entries of sawed off cream pop and contemporary agit rock that practically signals the arrival of a new era we never knew we needed," has reached the end of what we in the music business refer to as its promotion cycle. Besides, the tape is sold out. (Though a dubbed version is available at a "nice price.") So enjoy the podcast below free of shameless self promotion. If you can.

The Unblinking Ear Podcast 2/26/15

In all likelihood, this will be the final time I bug you about the critically acclaimed Unblinking Ear Records compilation, Serious Rockers. This is because a) we are sold out of cassettes and b) I need to inform you about the show whose flyer is pictured above. I'm very happy to present all five of the bands on this bill though I'm especially excited for the live debut of Carolee. She's been sending demos to Unblinking Ear HQ since nearly the beginning. These recordings wound up on her excellent EP on 12XU. So come out to Lot 13 in Bayonne on Saturday, March 7th and be sure to get there early because she's on first. RSVP on Facebook here and here's a Tumblr page if you avoid the Faceborg.

The Unblinking Ear Podcast 1/29/15


The first release on Unblinking Ear Records, the praised by cultural potentates 28-song compilation Serious Rockers has been available for nearly two months. So, of course, now is the perfect time to have a record release show, especially since half the physical copies have already been sold. However, if you'd like to ignore issues of timing, I do hope you'll attend and enjoy this monumental event at the fine establishment Pine Box Rock Shop. You can RSVP on Facebook here or if you're the type who likes to avoid racist rants from relatives, there's information on Tumblr.

The Unblinking Ear Podcast 1/15/15


In case you missed it (that is, in case you're not constantly scanning my posts on social media), the Serious Rockers cassette is now available and ready to ship. A good percentage of the 100 copies have already been sold, so if you want one for your own, you may want to head to the Unblinking Ear Records bandcamp page and claim one. Or, if you live in the New York area and feel like taking a calculated risk, you can buy a tape at the Serious Rockers Record Release Show, which will be at the Pine Box Rock Shop in Bushwick on February 7th. Save the date.

The Unblinking Ear Podcast 1/1/15

Happy New Year everybody! It's been far too long since I've posted a new podcast but it's my new year's resolution to post them on a more consistent schedule. (Full disclosure: I'm pretty sure I make this resolution every year and fail.) During the wait, I hope you enjoyed the Best of 2014 show I did on WFMU and, of course, I hope you've checked out Unblinking Ear Records Serious Rockers mixtape which is available for streaming and download now with tapes shipping next week! But for now, kick off 2015 in style with this new podcast!

The Unblinking Ear Podcast 11/20/14


So it's been about a month since my last podcast. If you missed me, I do hope you caught my fill in on WFMU in the interim. (With only a two out of 12 song overlap with this current podcast!) I think it should be worth the wait because we're unveiling the cover art for the forthcoming Unblinking Ear Records compilation Serious Rockers, design by Lauren Jantz. We can also let you know that the official release date for the digital version will be Tuesday, December 9th, 2014. Cassette version should be available shortly thereafter. We'll keep you posted.
