Hey everyone. I’ve gotten a few request emails that I’ve neglected out of laziness and each one happens to just be a single. With a press release. Column A and Column B of exactly the fuck what I don’t want to review. But. A request is a request. So here’s a new sub-segment of Blind Date My Ears called the Single With A Press Release Fuck It Fuck Everything Cycle. For the first installment I will be reviewing “Child’s Play” by East of Eli. The press release informs me that he is a cinematic folk artist and the song features his famous wife. However, his sound cloud seems to indicate it’s a different song featuring his famous wife. So…let’s see which it is (I’m not listening to the other one, so we may never know.) It’s just one song, so Date Breakdown in like a week. Unless I have a different kind of breakdown.
Hating life. Hating everything.
Hello and welcome to my ears’ 25th blind date. To celebrate the milestone I’ve took a chance and picked up a physical disc with some reward points I had hanging around. The album in question? Every Time I Die – Low Teens. This came out in 2016, but fuck it. That’s still recent. Let’s do this.
What does it sound like? Not the foggiest. Wanna listen along? Full album streams are available as indicated HERE.
See ya when I see ya. Date Breakdown forthcoming.

My ears received a request (and extensive press release, smh) to review the new single by a band called The Captain’s Son. I tried digging deeper for an album or EP, but they appear to only have one song available for streaming. Or maybe just one song in total. Like they go on stage, play the song, and then say “thanks, that’s been us!” I dunno. Anyway, the song is called “Walking Around Purposely” and you can find it HERE. What does it sound like? Did they mean to name it Walking Around Purposefully and have a brain fart? Again, I dunno. Let’s find out.

Date Breakdown when I feel like it.
EDIT [2/15/17]: looks like they added a song called “For Free” which you can find HERE. I will review these two tracks now instead of just the one.
EDIT [3/10/17]: Despite the appearance that I just don’t give a fuck enough to review this, I in fact do. So what’s the issue? They keep adding tracks to the SoundCloud, I’ve wanted to review an official release this whole time, and apparently today is the release of their EP So, Who’s The Son?
So here’s what I’m gonna do. I’m going to figure out the correct track order and make sure I’m listening to all of the tracks. If possible, it’d be great to find a free DL so I’m not bound to wifi to listen. In whatever case, hopefully in the next week or so I will have a review finalized and posted. Thanks for your patience.
The next installment of my ears going on a candlelit dinner with sounds they’ve never heard is upon them. This week, they will sit down with an album called Stuff We’ve Thrown by a band called Throwing Stuff. You can listen along and name your price HERE.
What does it sound like? I’m about to find out. Come on and join me.
Date Breakdown forthcoming. Holidays. Be patient. I dunno. It’ll happen.
Hey all! Back on the ear market and it was requested I listen to Dia’s debut EP Tiny Ocean. The press release linked to the release on SoundCloud, but I found a slightly longer version on bandcamp so I’m going to go with that. You can listen along HERE.
What does it sound like? Let’s find out.
Date Breakdown next week!
Welcome back! This week’s blind date is a two song release from Harlow called I go to college! I learn things!
What does it sound like? Who knows? Not my ears! Let’s find out together! Music! Listen along HERE.
While I was on hiatus, I received an email request to listen to and review random songs by Love Ghost. My initial reaction was hesitation, as the request accompanied a long description of the band and their sound. With the purpose of my blog being to go into these recordings blind, along with reviewing full cohesive releases, I found myself a bit conflicted. In the end, I’m flattered enough to get a request that I’m throwing caution to the wind. I mean, I haven’t actually heard it yet, right?
I was provided with 2 soundcloud links to new singles, HERE and HERE. My plan is to start with these songs and see what else I can dig up. Breakdown on Monday as usual.
