"Nothing Feels Good" (Promise Ring cover)

Thomas was bored in the wee hours of the 4th of july and pulled this lil ditty together for you all to enjoy.

For those who may be unfamiliar, this is a cover of “Nothing Feels Good” by The Promise Ring.

On 6.9.2011 we were fortunate enough to get added as an opening band for Memoryhouse at Johnny Brenda’s in Philly at the very last minute. Foxes in Fiction also played, who was quite brilliant as well (and played bass for Memoryhouse).

Given the opportunity, we asked Evan from Memoryhouse if they were going to play their cover of My Bloody Valentine’s “When You Sleep”. Originally they weren’t going to do it for this tour, but they decided to try a new “surf rock” version of it for the first time at this show (much different than the version seen here - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oSm_5TQiccM). Sounded great to us!

Thanks to MindEqualsBlown.net for sharing our music… Here’s an excerpt:

Ports of Call - “Transparent Apparent” from Fractals

I really cannot remember how I discovered Ports of Call, but I really wish that I could so I was able to discover more bands like them. This is a great slow-burning track with excellent production values that really bring out their charms. They communicate how they feel without the need for obvious verses and choruses through this record.
