Inevitable Fall

Please note: MP3s are only kept online for a short time, and if this entry is from more than a couple of weeks ago, the music probably won't be available to download any more.

 

Railcars - "Concrete Buildings"

Running slipping slick down all-night subway steps. Solar-powered scientific calculator bear attack. Squinting, plugging other ear, trying to hear unintelligible voicemail while swarmed by guitar-hornets. Licking a back-hand stamp to pass it, press it, to a friend.
[buy from the MySpace]

The Unbearables - "Loose Connection"

Beach blanket magic carpet clarinet-i-tron. Evergreen radar wheel christmas carol. Electric ripping Madonna helicopter shot. Lonely forest hippie garden circle. Reproachful firm but fair organ leads to massive guitar climb and inevitable fall.
[EP release at Emo's Lounge in Austin on Thurs]

I love that Unbearables song. Do you know where I can get the rest of their songs?

Jay,

Dan directed me to you- I'm the flute player in the Unbearables.

I'm so glad you like the song! We don't have any way to purchase the CD online right now, but we're probably going to send a few to CD Baby and have some mp3s for itunes. If you'd like, we can also send one to you directly. Can you e-mail me at theunbearables2008@gmail.com?

Also we have another selection up at www.myspace.com/theunbearables

Thanks again!

I like how short the railcars song is. it forces me to play it out instead of playing itself out. i saw them open for handsome furs and I swear EVERY song was like 1 - 2 minutes. or 9.

EMJ hearts Railcars!! We have been playing Aria's music for a long time now and it just gets better. We've been lucky enough to have Aria sending us demo's to listen to, we must have so many different versions of each song now that it's ridiculous. Every version sounds good to us.

Jay-

I know there's not really a chance you'll ever check this again, but we (finally) have our stuff for downloading or getting a hard copy here:
