this is such a disappointing review. This album scored 9.5 out of 10 on Pitchfork. It is so well written and put together. Did you actually listen to it?
Well I think its great. Listened to it a lot, love the passion and variety. Harpersman Rocks.

Hi, Mike from Hummingbird Of Death here. I feel compelled to point out that we didn't actually make our new LP available for download. (Wouldn't want to sabotage the investment Deep Six Records made in putting our record out!) But you can stream the album at www.soundcloud.com/hummerofdoom/sets/hod-skullvalanche. Thanks for the shout-out!
If anyone's interested in attending our record release show December 28, but doesn't know the location, feel free to email us! firstname.lastname@example.org
Few years back I played with three bands but unfortunately an devastating injury happened to my left hand. I had gone through:
which help me alot. After such things I had started to play again and continue in my guitar lessons. I'll keep trying my best to play like before. Any help you can send my way will be much appreciated...Thanks!!
I have been playing guitar for a long time. I have fallen into a flat picking thing like Tony Rice, Mark Oconnor (picking in the wind) from my guitar lessons. What do you offer to help me Master these great flowing licks? Let me know would be appreciated.
I need to know the chords to use in my guitar lessons and to put together a song by Paula Abdul that my wife loves dearly ...I think the name is " Straight up"....Any way I could get the moves on the strings to practice this ???
My guitar skills are average and basic at best. Good enough to support my writing interests from guitar lessons, but in no way good enough to provide anything other than basic rhythm.
I don't understand how comments on a simple review turn into a thread almost entirely devoted to Josh's penis. But here's what I think: If (Josh's penis) "...resembles a puppy tucked into a blanket" then that puppy is a Great
Dane and the blanket is a California king size down comforter.
They played here back in the day with Modest Mouse. Washed Out, Helio Sequence, I'm so happy to see SubPop records isn't forgetting about us over here!
The only bad publicity is no publicity. HaHa! Rock on Beltane!
I cant speak for the rest of Beltane but I luv Josh's penis for popping our bad review cherry! i didnt know there was a cherry to be found among us! We have had more song plays, "likes" and cd down loads since this review was published than in any previous 24 hour period and the Beltane review is now the most commented on review Josh has ever done! this is the best promo we have had since we were put on the family forum watch list for being devil worshippers!
Whoa whoa whoa, I think we need to reevaluate where this thread has gone. Josh's penis is a beautiful piece of sculpture. It resembles a puppy tucked into a blanket, and for the record, it's anything but small. For shame, Beltane, for getting your penis-bashing minions spread such filth. Good day.
As least he didn't slam the entire genre for what it is: pandering to the boring Anglo-hippie "back-to-Gaia" crowd.
I gave the music a listen. To the casual listener, the music does sound dull and cliche. It's made for a very specific audience. I think his review is pretty nice. To my ears, this stuff is terrible. This style of music is why I play video games with the music turned off.
Apparently some of you don't know what a music critic does so I got the definition for you from http://www.thefreedictionary.com/music+cri…
1.music critic - a critic of musical performances
critic - a person who is professionally engaged in the analysis and interpretation of works of art
This is Josh's interpretation of this band's work, nothing more, nothing less. You like them? Fine. Don't like the review? Also fine. Name calling, belittling, and asking for someone's job because you disagree with a person's OPINION? I wonder who the assholes here really are.
And for the record, Jeanine Lesniak, Josh has a massive penis. I've seen it.
Well Josh, thanks for taking the time to review our CD! It's clear that you didn't like it, but that's not a problem for me. When an artist turns in their art to be reviewed by someone who is paid to criticize, they know that they may not like what the critic has to say. But I'm not here to criticize your comments, as they speak very loudly for themselves.
There is one thing I would like to ask you on behalf of Beltane, and anyone else who happens your way. PLEASE have the professional integrity to do your research before you speak! You say that Beltane describes itself as a Celtic band and by that, you are insinuating that we are basically misrepresenting ourselves. Our fans describe us as Celtic, but we know we're not the Chieftains! If you had taken time to actually read our website (that you linked to) you would have understood where the "Spanish and Latin music, making heavy use of minor keys, acoustic guitar and flute flourishes" comes from. I'm going to quote, in our own words from that website, what we are about...
"Our music is a rich mix of original songs based on Celtic and World myths and traditions.
Though our foundations may be traditional, our sound is quite “modern”. One can hear the influence of everything from Celtic violin, to Middle Eastern rhythms, to Native
American flutes, and classic American rock guitar.
Ultimately, Beltane’s sound is about the human voice, and its ability to create beauty, and to share messages, feelings and stories. The lush female harmonies, and the beauty and integrity of the lyrics are central to our sound".
Just thought you might like to know, Josh.
Where- oh where- is Michael Deeds when you need him?
