What is one experience you’ve been through that has completely changed you? How do you compare now to your old self before said experience?

We all go through changes and life altering events. I want to hear about them. Send me your answer through my ask box. You can either be anonymous or not, I won’t be jude you. I’m using these stories for inspiration for songs for my band’s (Less Than A Sea) upcoming album, Always Dying

Here’s the live acoustic video of the song “La Segunda Parte”. This song is a continuation of Jon and I’s former band The Ground is Dancing's song “Mexico.”

I had the idea to record this song last night out and about somewhere, so we picked a Publix parking lot. I’ve been working out the kinks with this song, and it may still need some work, but it is what it is right now. It’s fun to play and sing (though vocal melody might change by the time it’s a finished product). This is the first glimpse at the music the band will be creating. Thank you for checking it out ahead of time. More to come soon.

The Hotelier - An Introduction to the Album (Home, Like Noplace Is There)

"An Introduction to the Album" by The Hotelier

You shot from the hip and missed. Detaching from all of this. In physical pictures you remain, spiral ‘round yourself in figure-eight. I recoil at every new beginning. 

I searched for a way out. Don’t we all? An existentialist recall: turn in all dichotomies and truths that I gave. I felt wrong in many ways. It didn’t heal. It just got harder everyday to be still, to be passing through the throes in a daze, feeling heavy, feeling cold in my skin, in my hand-me-downs. I’m wearing everything thin. And the pills that you gave didn’t do anything. I just slept for years on end. 

So if I call, should I beg? Because I’m desperate here; a couple steps from the edge. I can’t seem to burn bright enough. I’m cold and I’m left alone. We’re all alone. Grab a hold. I know I said to not. What the fuck do I know? I had a chance to construct something beautiful and I choked.

The Hotelier - Dendron (Home, Like Noplace Is There)

And I felt the noose tighten up on your collarbone 
And I felt the gun in the small of your back 
Engraved in the stone by request, in recurse of friends dead 
Is: “Tell me again that it’s all in my head.”

Twenty One Pilots - House Of Gold (Vessel)

And since we know that dreams are dead,
And life turns plans up on their head,
I will plan to be a bum,
So I just might become someone.

She asked me, “Son, when I grow old,
Will you buy me a house of gold?
And when your father turns to stone,
Will you take care of me?”

I've got a lot of loose ends, I've done some damage, 
I've cut the rope so they fray,
I've got a lot of good friends, keeping me distracted,
keeping my sanity safe,
Here, I stand on the edge of the ledges I've made,
Looking for a steady hand,
Here, I stand in the land of the rocks in the valley,
Trying to be a better man (for you),
I drink a little too much, it makes me nervous,
I've got my grandfathers blood,
I've taken a little too much,without giving back,
If blessed are the meek then I'm cursed, And I want to learn how to love,
And give it all back,
And be forgiven for all I've done. Ledges by Noah Gundersen

Just discovered this guy and I’m loving everything I hear.

The National - Apartment Story (Boxer)

We’ll stay inside till somebody finds us
Do whatever the TV tells us
Stay inside our rosy-minded fuzz for days
We’ll stay inside till somebody finds us
Do whatever the TV tells us
Stay inside our rosy-minded fuzz

So worry not, all things are well
We’ll be alright, we have our looks and perfume

Gayngs - "Faded High"

the morning comes
see giant clocks of mercury pouring from their eyes
give back both your times
trust it
occupied love falls between the lines

Fun fact about this whole album. Each song is at 69 bpm.
