The Speed of Sound in Seawater

FFO: This Town Needs Guns, because that's pretty much what this band is, except these guys have more of a Chicago emo influence I'd say...I honestly don't know who I like more, if only because I like the way this vocalist sounds more.

On the other hand I could be ******ed and this could have the same singer. And guitarist. They are really, really similar and that in itself is an accomplishment. Check it out.

All their albums are up on bandcamp but redversion is my favorite.

Great band. I've been listening to them for a while now. Red Version is probably my favourite of their releases too.

Their bio on last.fm is hilarious

"Damien, Fernando, Michael and Jordan are some rad dudes that make up The Speed of Sound in Seawater. Supposedly, they’re best friends, and this sound of theirs is the consequence of their love for one another, but I don’t buy that one bit, because that’s mad fruity (not that there’s anything wrong with that). I think it’s them trying to do some funky, fresh stuff that nobody else has done before. I mean, what kind of mathy, noodly goodness has come along and made girls drop their panties like this? I can’t think of anything besides lying to them, telling them that you’re still a virgin and you don’t know a single thing about the art of sex. Yet now you do, because you’ve listened to this California based band several hundred times over. I mean, just the other day I played Red Version by these guys and was walked in on by my mom as I simulated coitus with my finger in my ear. I was like “moms, it’s not what you think, listen to this jawn” then I turned on Romanticore and she took her underwear off. I was like “yo wtf that’s gross, put them back on” and she did once I paused it.

Note: The Speed of Sound in Seawater is not responsible for any damage caused by seeing your mother undress herself, but they’ll totally take responsibility for getting you laid (unless that’s with your mom)"

Family issues, job, just got my possession of mj case resolved...oh and I'm going into the Navy, between all those it's been more than a little hectic.

Also haven't seen that before, it looks like a modernized version of Joey's blog. Awesomesauce.

I prefer harsher vocals with this sort of music, but I can still get into it, a bit Shins like.

They definitely share a lot with TTNG but they also definitely have their own sound. Blue Version is my favorite, I think. They've got some of the same silliness or chaotic elements that like, The Fall of Troy has. They're a lot of fun.

Has anyone else checked out Damien's new solo album? It's wonderful.
