[Jams |Quasi - I Never Want To See You Again]

 I used to love being on the cutting edge of music.  I kept up with all the latest bands, knew all the hippest songs, and forced horrible, almost unlistenable music on my friends because I knew about it and they didn't.  

Cut to present day where I feel like I have absolutely no idea what bands are 'in', and in actuality, the thought of all of these new bands gets me down.  The newer bands that really get me excited seem to be the bands that got other people really excited about three years ago, it just gets tiresome and depressing when you try to keep up to the point that you're not even listening, you're just collecting.  

I miss the feeling of the summer jams, the feeling of a new album coming out that you're actually excited for, the feeling of tearing open a CD, rolling your windows down and driving around town all day listening to it.   I still get this feeling from repurchasing classics from my youth or early twenties, or discovering older bands that don't exist anymore or have gone out of fashion long before the current era of music  - so what's the point of branching out.  For me, today's bands offer little incentive to tread into their new frontier - why would I try a restaurant's new line of specials when I just came for my usual?  This isn't to say that I am going to shun all current music for fear of trying something new - I just feel like I let music come to me these days instead of seeking it out.  What sticks sticks, and the rest sort of slides away.  

I guess I don't really know what I'm getting at, I just feel a certain frustration with modern music and I get that consumer feeling that I have to know and love all of it.  I feel like that is how things are designed these days, moreso than ever - disposable, get rich schemes that bands rarely survive.  The strong ones make it, the ones that are designed to see through all of that.   Maybe I'm just overthinking it and should just listen to whatever gets my toes tapping.

I feel as if I only post about our band, the inner workings of our band, or the shows our band will be playing in the coming months. This is not meant to bore, rather, it's the only important thing going on in my life besides family, friends, and karaoke (which is damned important).

This post IS band related.  You have been warned. 

The Grand Rapids Press named our album the local album of the year. You can read all about it here:


This is fantastic news! We worked so hard on this album - it took us three years to get it right - and locally we were honored with a big award like this.  

Awards are a funny thing.  It's strange to get a nod for something like this just for making something that entertains.  It's strange to take a hobby, put a little more thought behind it, and then three years later see something you did in bold type.  Our album is by no means the best album that came out of gGrand Rapids this year - it was just one of several creative works that really catalog the talent in Grand Rapids.  Chance Jones, Nate Kalish, Jes Kramer, Ben and Mike Riley - all wonderful bands that put out wonderful albums.  

As a band, we'll celebrate this for a bit, and then go right back to trying our damndest alongside our musical comrades to get this town's engines roaring.

If you are so inclined, you can buy our album online at these places!

Just search for " The Mighty Narwhale."

You can, of course, still buy actual copies - but that's not very futuristic of you!
