Here's To Feeling Good All The Time
New Comics Day

I was determined to finish my August comics before my September comics arrived, but my new comics came in the mail today and I still have some of last month’s comics left to read.  Anyways, here’s the rundown:

1. Amazing Spider-man #6 and #1.5, Superior Spider-man #33, Edge Of Spider-verse #1, #2, and #3
2. Miles Morales: The Ultimate Spider-man #5, All-New Ultimates #8
3. Original Sin #8
4. All-New X-men #32, Uncanny X-men #25 and #26
5. Avengers #34.1 and #35, New Avengers #24, Avengers World #12 and #13
6. Guardians Of The Galaxy #19
7. Captain America #24

15. The United States Of Murder #5

Barons

I saw Barons perform at the Mr. Roboto Project in Pittsburgh a few months ago (they played a show with One If By Land) and I really enjoyed their set.  I would describe their sound as a combination of Dillinger Four and Iron Chic…fast, catchy punk rock.  At the time, they hadn’t released any music yet, but now their debut, self-titled 7” has come out on Underground Communique Records.  The record is available on black vinyl (110 copies) or translucent pink vinyl (220 copies) and it comes with a download code.  You can listen to the whole record on BandCamp, order just the record, order the record with a t-shirt, or order the record with a t-shirt and the Voice In The Wire LP.

Between The Days Records has released One If By Land’s debut album “In The Fire Of My Youth” on vinyl.  The record is available in 5 different vinyl/cover combinations:

100 Black
50 Transparent Green
50 Coke Bottle Clear
50 Transparent Green with hand screened cover
50 Coke Bottle Clear with hand screened cover

You can order a copy here (or be awesome and get one of each variant).  The record looks and sounds great and copies are only $10 each, so there’s no excuse not to check it out.

Jen Wood “Wilderness”

Jen Wood is set to release her new album “Wilderness” on October 14.  You can pre-order the digital version or the vinyl version from her Bandcamp page (or you can get the CD version from Amazon).  If you’ve never listened to Jen, I would recommend checking out "In 3-D" (from "Traveling Through Roots") or "Ride" (from "This Uncontainable Light"), although all of her stuff is good.

Comic Book Power Rankings

I finished reading my June comics and here’s the stuff that stood out:

1. Amazing Spider-man (Issue #3) [Felicia Hardy plots her revenge.]
2. Justice League (Issue #31) [Bruce Wayne and Lex Luthor chat by the fire.]
3. Guardians Of The Galaxy (Issue #16) [Captain Marvel rescues Peter Quill.]
4. New Avengers (Issues #19 and #20) [The New Avengers make impossible choices as they deal with another incursion.]
5. Original Sin (Issue #4) [Will the real Nick Fury please stand up?]

Ryan Adams “Gimme Something Good”

I’ve really been digging this song.  It will appear on Ryan’s upcoming self-titled album, which comes out September 9.  You can get the album from his webstore or any of the usual suspects (Amazon, iTunes, etc).  This song is also featured on the first of a series of 7” records that Ryan is currently releasing.  The first one (“Gimme Something Good”) and the second one (“1984”) are already out, with the third one (“Jacksonville”) set to come out on September 16.

Comic Book Power Rankings

I just finished reading my May comics.  Here’s the best of the bunch:

1. Miles Morales: The Ultimate Spider-man (Issue #2) [Norman Osborn is a free man.]
2. Amazing Spider-man (Issue #2) [Peter tries to figure out what he’s missed.]
3. Daredevil (Issue #3) [Daredevil teams up with The Shroud.]
4. Forever Evil (Issue #7) / Justice League (Issue #30) [Lex Luthor dispatches the Crime Syndicate and then he tries to join the Justice League.]
5. Batman (Issue #31) [Batman challenges The Riddler to a game of wits.]

oneifbylandpa:

So we finally have an EXTREMELY limited number of 7” vinyl splits that we did as part of the 20 Years of Hell Subscription Series that was released on A-F Records! This is Volume IV, featuring a Previously Unreleased ONE IF BY LAND SONG and a remastered version of our song Handouts!

Also Anti Flag have 2 gems on it as well!

They are $8.00 due to the incredible packaging and costs that went into making these. I’m talking like there are 5 right now for sale on the store. 

Follow the link, first come, first serve. We may have a few more we can put up later but no promises! 

I am so excited that One If By Land now has a few copies of their split 7” with Anti-Flag.  They only have a couple of copies, so I would get one before they’re gone.
