goldfish need music too. this one's taste is ultra-refined. only the best for the fattest fish around. read the blog. we'll drag you through concerts, websites, new music reviews and the same stuff you read everywhere else. except here, we're ruled by a creature whose memory is three seconds long. it's a tough swim.

cha cha cha harumph.
i wanted to go on forever about my feelings on Rolling Stone and why indie-scenesters can't just discredit it, though i'm sometimes tempted to myself. and so i did. but i did it elsewhere. click to read all of that.
as for bands, here's a real find.
The Little Ones, Sing Song EP. this unsigned LA band is (maybe) the best i will be including on this list. i adore them. i adore their sound, i adore their representation, i adore their influences. they are blogosphere darlings, inevitably sunshine pop mixed with that occasional folky twang, and so yeah: they sound like your usual suspects, spearheaded by the shins. sorry, guys. is it possible to write about them without the reference? they set themselves up with the cover art. thetripwire review
the kids love this one. until i get my act together with this mp3 business, you can grab most of the tracks off of the ep by visiting the following mp3 blogs, all of whose visitor traffic is just slightly higher than ours:
LA based blog. admittedly, JAX gave them away to me back in april.
as i understand it, they haven't really gotten their asses out of california, and considering toaster is boston-based i see it useless to post their show dates. sigh.
NOTE: as much as toaster loves free music, he'd like to encourage you to buy the cds of the artists you enjoy. he'd also like to remind you that any music hosted by or linked to from this page is property of its respective owners, so if that's you and you'd like it to not be here, just let us know.
READ ME: if files are not working properly upon opening or saving [ex: unknown file type], make sure that there is a .mp3 at the end of the filename, and all will be well.
also: all files posted will only remain available for two to three weeks. if you find something in an old post that you'd really like to hear, tell us.
be our god damn myspace friend. damn it.
love for these blogs
magazine style (no fins required to flip pages)
buy stuff, look around, find things...
