The Unblinking Ear Podcast 10/15/15

Lots of news since our previous podcast.

First of all, our unofficial CMJ showcase (flyer above by the lovely Carrie Quartly) is this Saturday. You can RSVP on Facebook here and buy tickets here.

Secondly, we've just launched our monthly digital single series Office Supplies! Every month we'll be posting an exclusive (for the time being, at least) song by a different artist on our Bandcamp page. Every song will be "name your price" so it's free to download if you're a total cheapskate. To start us off is the band that closed out our Serious Rockers comp (how's that for continuity?) Snowmans of Love.

In other news, Big Quiet has a music video for "Maura & Dana," which premiered at The Deli Magazine NYC.

And finally, is up and running so check it out! (While you're listening to the below podcast, of course.)

The Unblinking Ear Podcast 10/1/15

It's been over a month since the last Unblinking Ear Podcast. Yes, we somehow managed to skip all of September. Not because we haven't been busy.

We did not one but two fill ins on WFMU (who have just begun their annual silent fundraiser so go give them some money) during that time.

Additionally,Unblinking Ear Records released the debut solo album from Zoltars frontman Jared Leibowich, Welcome Late Bloomers. It's available on cassette and digital and, if we do say so ourselves, is rather fantastic.

Finally, we've been working on our first ever CMJ showcase! (Unofficial, of course. There's no way I'd be allowed to go legit.) It's happening the afternoon of Saturday, October 17 at Union Pool and will feature the Gotobeds, Big Quiet, Snowmans of Love and a secret surprise musical guest, who I promise, will not disappoint. DJ Nate K will be spinning tunes before and in between bands and Pat Byrne will host, making us smile and perhaps making us think a little (though probably not).

That's a lot for you to mull over as you as listen to this podcast. (And we've got more big announcements coming soon.) You'll be happy to know that due to the layoff, a lot a good tunes have piled up for the past month and this episode is all killer, no filler. We're all about quality, not quantity here at Unblinking Ear HQ. (Actually, we're mainly about not making any money.)
