With Success Comes A Price

I received my first notice from a copyright holder to remove a post. King Crimson to be exact. It has me a little scared. I had assumed I was safe posting bootlegs. Now, maybe not. I removed the post. What do I do now? Shut down the blog? Try to take it private again? I may have a way, but it may crap out like the last time. Your thoughts? Insights? Ideas? Send me an email at blind-pig@live.com or leave a comment under any post.

Arbor Day Braver Than Today @ 160

Hello TonyTiger,

Love your site, thanks for all of the shows I've downloaded (I've downloaded a lot). Anyway, I saw your post saying that you are looking for new music, so I thought I would give it a shot and send music from my band, Arbor Day, over to you. We're a Brooklyn based band who draw influences from The Beach Boys, Kinks, Orange Juice, The Smiths among many, many others. Below is a link to our latest ep, Braver Than Today (sorry, we didn't have any live recordings) hope you enjoy it. If so, please feel free to post/do whatever with these tracks.

Thanks a ton,
Arbor Day

Arbor Day began in 1999 when three freshmen at New York University became engaged in a very serious conversation regarding various bootleg versions of the Beach Boys' SMiLE. This conversation led to a close friendship, which led to a semester of musical experimentation. But it wasn’t until that Christmas break when singer/songwriter Dileepan Ganesan recorded a batch of songs and then played them for his friends Andrew Levine (trombone, Theremin) and Joseph Hasan (bass) upon his return to classes, that Arbor Day took a more solid form. These songs provided the basis for the group's sound: a subtle blend of 60s pop, indie rock aesthetic, and plenty of catchy melodies.

The first EP by Arbor Day, the six song Radar Boy, was released in 2003 on the group's own …Or Best Offer Records. The release featured one of the songs from Ganesan's original home recordings, the jangly guitar driven "Vegetable". Radar Boy, was well received by local press, garnering comparisons to the Smiths and the Beach Boys (the Village Voice) and Orange Juice (TimeOut NY). In 2006, the group recorded their follow-up EP, Braver Than Today, again releasing it on their own …Or Best Offer Records. A 7" single for the leadoff track "This Misery" was released by Awesometown Records in 2007.

On stage, the group now performs as a six piece rounded out by the talents of viola player Amy Cimini, pianist Gabrielle Fastman, and drummer Jon Gilmore. Arbor Day has shared bills with like minded acts such as of Montreal, Tilly & the Wall, The Hidden Cameras, and The Minders and has performed at such venerable venues as the Bowery Ballroom, the Mercury Lounge, and the Knitting Factory, just to name a few. Future plans include more recording, touring, and spreading their brand of infectious indie pop across the world.

This Misery
She's Got The Way
Drive Into The Fire
Pulling The Wool
A Useless Mime
Long Walk To L.A.
