    Open Wrist Talks Back Again....

    I've absolutely loved TMV since I first heard Deloused about 5 years ago. They're the most amazing band I've ever heard! And they're completely under-rated. I finally got to see them live on 9/05/09 and it was the most incredible experience. I knew they were going to be good but...

    Powerful and Complex.

    Strange, confusing lyrics that only make sense after you think about them, agonize over them... intense, driving music, and his voice makes me feel wound up, panicky, depressed, anxious. Such an interesting experience listening to them.

    I Always Loved the Mars Volta

    But I am like completely obsessed now. They are my second favorite band of all time. No...Omar and Cedric are my 2nd and 3rd favorite musicians of all time. They are always creative and while their sound changes, the quality of their music has not. If you haven't, check out Omar...
