There will be no leap into hyperspace and... It's already too late.

I received the sad news that Sputniq's tour is cancelled today. It's such a bummer considering they are one of the best bands that New Mexico has to offer. I would personally like to ask everyone to send good vibes their way because they definitely deserved a longer tour. These things happen, I guess? Listen to them, offer up some kind words.

It's about 3 days until we officially leave for tour and we're stoked. The whole idea of spending a bit over a week in California is really exciting. I can't wait to put my toes in some sand and share some laughs with some bands there.

Until next time, this is how excited I feel.

Oh the sounds of summer.

Hasn't this summer been just dandy? I think it has. There definitely have been a lot of changes for everyone I believe. The whole city of Albuquerque seems to be buzzing and coated in freshly pink new skin. Not to say the road to where we are hasn't been rough, I'd claim the opposite. And yet, the growth undergone on a personal level leaves me feeling relieved. It's quite refreshing. I feel like I am where I want to be.

Let's share some good tunes, eh?

This is a small portion of the rotation of my iPod throughout these scorching months. Enjoy!

Caribou - Andorra

The Besnard Lakes - The Besnard Lakes Are the Dark Horse

And and oldie, but a goodie.

Slowdive - Souvlaki

The Satanic Satanist.

So, I've been raving about this record even before it was released. I used to scam the interweb everyday looking for song files and leaks... oooooooof. But at any rate, it is my favorite release of this year so far, not only because of the vast expanse of awesome tracks, but also due to the killer packaging and artwork. Austin Sellers (probably my favorite graphic artist) and John Gourley (another favorite) really outdid themselves with this one.

So, pick up a physical copy of the record, it's awesome and definitely definitely worth it.

Initial Post

Hello blog world. This is Adam Abeyta's blog space. If you happen to find yourself reading this, you probably have an idea of who I am. As it is, this blog will contain some awesome posts of arts and thoughts and everfin else you (or I rather) care to share with the world. A personal map to some treasures I hide away somewhere in this head of mine. 

Being my first post, I feel that I should leave everyone with something fun. So, thanks to Greg, a definite gentleman, feast your eyes on some FANG ISLAND playing to a class of Kindergardeners. Oh so cute/awesome/weird? Maybe a bit.
