***2014 OMSB mp3 Mix #4 (April)***

April 2014 mp3 MIX #4
...and updates

Check back tomorrow for a full show review from the Kalamazoo house show with Yusuke, Locktender and Shoto. I met so many amazing people I blabbed on and on like a school-girl to my wife for hours. Twas a great time. For now, gaze into the moonlight outside of my window...if you can see past the icicles. Let's do this.

The following page have changes:

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 February mp3 mix that is used for this month's reviews.

The new OMSB mp3 Mix #4 is linked below and will be reviewed in April. This 16-song mix includes:
*-* an exclusive song premiere that is being released from an upcoming album but can be found nowhere but this comp!
*-* the best mathy/jazzy/catchy/screamy band since Desiderata
*-* a band any fan of the screamo genre should recognize, especially fans of animals
*-* a math-metal band that only released 1 amazing song, but it's really, really good
*-* another new Swedish band has struck screamo gold


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