***2016 OMSB mp3 Mix #4 (April)***

April 2016 mp3 MIX #4
...and updates

I'm a busy fella right now. The blog seems to be taking off a bit (over the past month we've had 4 bands do exclusive premieres with more to come) but the label is hurtin' due to low sales so I need to focus more on that because, y'know, I need to pay my mortgage and feed my kid. Should you care to share the Zegema Beach Records info, it is listed below. Thank you to everyone that visits this site and checks out all the great music listed here. It means the world.

Any help in the ZBR realm is much appreciated.

Here's last month's tracklisting for the OMSBmix#2 that was reviewed in February.

1) interview coming in April for this band!

2) L'ANTIETAM - We Saw the Umbrella Man


4) KIKEN - Blood Moon

5) INTO THE MOAT - Century I


7) USURP SYNAPSE - Untitled Track 4

8) 88 FINGERS LOUIE - Tomorrow Starts Today


10) SHY LOW - Heavy Hands

Much love,

Dave / OMSB / ZBR

- nada

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 re-posted the February mp3 mix that is used for this month's reviews.

The new OMSB mp3 Mix #4 is pretty damn heavy with but 2 exceptions out of the 11 songs and they all kick ass, including:
*-* a song/band premiere that sounds like Orchid and June Paik
*-* a crazy mixture of At The Drive In, The Paper Chase and The Blood Brothers from Venice, Italy
*-* one of the earliest screamy/dancey bands that I've heard
*-* a Mississauga band that successfully combined Converge with Rye Coalition
*-* a song premiere for an experimental Montreal band that has floored me 3 times with their live show


Any bands/labels that are interested in having their stuff reviewed, please email zegemabeachrecords@gmail.com: with "Open Mind Saturated Brain" as the subject. Please keep in mind that I don't review everything, just what jives with the blog. I will, however, listen to everything you send me. I would recommend emailing with an idea for a song/album premiere 2 months prior to that song/album release date for a much stronger chance at being reviewed on this blog. Bands that have already had their discography reviewed can also submit new albums for review if they include song/album premieres.
