***NOVEMBER 2013 mp3 Mix****

...and updates

Life is good. The music coming out this year has been stellar. I can't wait to do a top 10 or 20 list in December/January! And there will be 2 year-end mp3 mixes as well! Happy days.

Speaking of happy days, AMBER's self-titled test presses arrived at Zegema Beach Records a few weeks ago so pre-orders will officially launch November 19th, 2013! This bad boy is limited to a mere 300 copies so go to to order. DESCUBRIENDO A MR. MIME pre-orders are still up and are limited to 250, only 50 of which will end up in North America. LA PARADE goes to press in the next week or two and should be out in January 2014. ICE HOCKEY's 7" also goes to press this month and should be out in January as well, and is limited to 300 copies.

I have also included a page specifically for submitted material to the blog. There are currently 8 bands who have submitted stuff that will go up, 1 per day. If you think your band jives with this blog, send me your link and I'll post it. Check it out here, and tell your musician-type friendies to do the same and submit their stuff. It's linked to the Zegema Beach Records site.

Back to OPENmind/SATURATEDbrain.

***Exclusive unreleased songs are contained on this mix! 2, to be exact.
***Interviews coming up for sure:
-Ken Mode
-Stephen Brodsky (Cave In / Mutoid Man / etc.)

***Interviews last month:
-Big Dick
-By Divine Right (video interview)
-Loma Prieta
-Van Johnson

The following page have changes:
*Die Princess Die's page has been updated with a complete discography, as I was able to obtain the Die Princess Die/Manifolds split 7". So go get those 2 extremely rare songs on the post here or just get the download here.

As always, on or around the 1st of every month, I will be posting a ZIP file with songs for the upcoming month with ALL specifics deleted from the tags, so unless you already know the band, there is NO information regarding each track.

During the following month, I will post reviews for those bands and link the tracks to the review so you can associate the two together. This way you can listen to a new song/band and have little-to-no bias. Below, I have reposted the October mp3 mix that is used for the November reviews. This mix will be reviewed during this month of November and the first band will be reviewed on the Tuesday, November 5th. 
The NEW (November mp3s/December reviews) mix will is posted below and is pretty goddamn heavy. I think there one song without screaming. Yep, just one. To be a bit more detailed, included is:
*-* an exclusive OMSB song for those of you who like Raein, La Quiete, MNWA, Old Soul and Trachimbrod
*-* a 3-guitar attack track with as many vocalists - obscure and pretty much unheard of, for some mindboggling reason
*-* a band referred to by my wife as "The Angry Germans" - spot on!
*-* a song taken from the best EP of the year
*-* a ridiculously obscure chaotic screamy hardcore band from the early to mid-2000s that seems to have flown under most educated people's screamo radar - FOR SHAME!!!

Any bands/labels that are interested in having their stuff reviewed, please email with "Open Mind Saturated Brain" as the subject
