A couple of years ago Deep Elm Records put their entire discography online at a name your own price rate. Deep Elm’s catalog is deep (no pun intended) and full of great bands. Triple Fast Action, Brandtson, The Appleseed Cast, Pop Unknown, Red Animal War, Planes Mistaken For Stars, Last Days of April, The Emo Diaries Series, Benton Falls, and so so so much more! If I could direct you towards I couple of records, I highly recommend checking out Brandtson’s Trying TO Figure Each Other Out and The Cast Before The Break’s As Your Shoulders Turn On You. Of course there are tons of bands and record to listen to and all of them are excellent. You can check out Deep Elm’s discography at http://deepelmdigital.com/music and as always, if you love an album, find a way to support the band and label. Pay for an album, buy a t-shirt, go to a show (if the band is still active).
