The Unblinking Ear Podcast 8/27/15

Summer is almost over. How was yours? Mine kind of stunk, thanks for asking. However, the good news is that a couple of exciting things are happening this fall. Here's a tease for one of them.

The Unblinking Ear Podcast 8/6/15

New podcast! It's pretty good. I have nothing to plug and I'm too dehydrated to write anything else because it's August. Enjoy!

The Unblinking Ear Podcast 7/16/15


Do you like to party? Of course you do. Well, there's a heck of a party happening tomorrow night at Pine Box Rock Shop in Brooklyn: Big Quiet's 7" release show! Come and see Big Quiet and pick up their Unblinking Ear Records 7". Plus you get to see SWIVS, Real Numbers (who have a tune on the below podcast) and Sunshine and the Rain. But that's not all! Wait.. that is all. And that should be enough! RSVP here (or get more info here if you're not on Faceborg).

The Unblinking Ear Podcast 7/2/15

So here's an anomaly: a new podcast with nothing for me to plug. Sure, I could tell you that the Big Quiet 7" and the Kerbivore and SWIVS tapes are still available at the Unblinking Ear Records bandcamp page or that Big Quiet's record release show for said 7" will be Friday, July 17th at Pine Box Rock Shop in Brooklyn and will feature special guests Real Numbers, My Teenage Stride and Sunshine and the Rain. However, I'll refrain and let you enjoy listening to this edition of the podcast free from my shameless self-promotion.

The Unblinking Ear Podcast 6/4/15


It's been a month since the last Unblinking Ear Podcast. Apologies for not keeping to my personally mandated biweekly schedule (thought I did a fill in for Evan "Funk" Davies on WFMU last week which you could have listened to if you missed me that much). However, things have been quite busy for us at Unblinking Ear HQ. SWIVS will be making their live debut a secret time and location very soon. Kerbivore's EP release show is set for June 18th at Cake Shop. And, perhaps most thrillingly, we're gearing up to release our first vinyl: the Big Quiet "Maura & Dana" 7"! You can preorder now with records shipping on June 16th. Or you can download both tunes for only $1. But then you'd miss out on owning one of only 300 copies of this monumental release. Don't be left out!

The Unblinking Ear Podcast 5/7/15


Another podcast, another Unblinking Ear Records release to plug. This one is from Staten Island power trio Kerbivore, a 5-song EP called All Dressed. Without totally reiterating their one sheet (which I wrote, so it wouldn't be plagiarism) I'm going to say it's their best stuff yet. They've always been a band with chops but this is the first release where, back to front, they've got the tunes to match. Its opening track also opens this edition of the podcast and the whole shebang is available for streaming/digital download at the Unblinking Ear Records bandcamp page, with cassettes shipping very soon.

The Unblinking Ear Podcast 4/23/15


Lots of new and exciting stuff happening here at Unblinking Ear HQ. First of all, the SWIVS album Free Period Blood Money (Tina Lugo's cover art is above) is up now on bandcamp, available for streaming, digital download and cassette preorders. Secondly, Kerbviore's EP All Dressed will be up as well very soon, but in the meantime, you can have a sneak peak here. And thirdly... we'll let's save that for next time (or two times from now.)

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.
