Astronomical- Nostalgia

So I play in lots of bands, but I decided to start a solo project that is far from anything I play. Astronomical is a musical journey that encourages the listeners to open their minds and take in the sound. It's calming nature provides a sense of musical therapy that creates a relaxing yet passionate environment. Check out Astronomical at

Jai Alai - Divison EP

My brother gave me this record years ago and told me they were local in New Orleans. I know nothing about this band all I know is that it has a major influence on me and you cant find it anywhere.

Jai Alai - Division EP

1. 84 Sold
2. Parking Lots
3. Antilles
4. No Va
5. Jacknife
6. Crawling Of Turn
7. Christmas In July

The members of Jai Alai know how to evoke a mood. Their songs are shimmering, warm, and slippery, the perfect soundtrack for introspective rainy days or dreamily soothing commutes. The cozy bass rumbles along, providing an elastic background for washes of electronics, sprinkles of guitar, and whispers of vocals. Singer/bass player Jake Springfield's breathy voice adds an appropriate touch of smoke to David Drude's crisp guitar and Jay Abbott's tight percussion. The resulting blend of post-rock and electronic music sensibilities is both creative and comforting.
Jeanne Acceturo


This record is truly amazing and is a staple amongst my friends and I. A real underground classic in New Orleans. This record was only burned and there is no place to purchase it. I decided I have to put it online so I can always find a copy when mine gets fucked up.

Band Members: Travis Thompson, Kevin Comarda, Kirk Estopinal, Ryan Iriarte.
They recently formed a new band called The BLACKbelt band and you can find them here.
Their new record, A New Community, was released March 17th 2009 on Sick Room Records and should be purchased here.
