Fidel Catastrophe

Fidel Catastrophe is headed by the Original bassist of the Pomegranates (they're on their 3rd bassist right now), who is clearly a force to be reckoned with. They've been plugging their music via Band Camp, a site for unsigned bands that I'm growing more and more enamored of, though I'm surprised that anticon hasn't swiped these guys yet. They put me in mind of a poppy, concise version of Thee More Shallows combined with a less nasally and less rap-prone Yoni Wolf.

They also only have 3 songs available for download right now, and I've had them on repeat all day. I'm in band-love, guys. Deep, deep band-love. As far as I can tell, they're pressing vinyl right now, so there aren't any tracks on what.cd or waffles.fm. I want an album! The suspense is killing me!

BandCamp isn't a label, it's a free web-site service for bands. Like mYFace, but 1000X better.
Love the blog, thanks.

Thank you for the kind review! The album is going to be on vinyl, but it will have a digital download with it, and the digital download will have five tracks from the new album I'm recording now.

I was thinking about just uploading it to waffles.fm anyway.

Thanks again for writing about us! I'm glad you like the music.

Hi y'all,

First of all, I intended to pay you a visit today because I've been neglecting my blog for the last few months and, now that I'm back in the game, I was just dropping by to pay my dues.

Then I clocked that you'd put up a link to my blog, and I felt grateful and ashamed for not dropping by more often.

Muchos loveos.
