Enter the Shell, of Los Angeles, has released a recent podcast featuring The Standstill. In includes an interview with Jeff Maynard, as well as several cuts from “Endless Winter.”
Not only did Sonic Masala give the new Dire Con album a mostly favorable review, but also a lovely bonus nod to COP’s Urgency. Additionally, they are featuring the track, “Wasted Youth,” in addition to “Pills.” This is also the second reference in a review, basically dubbing this style of sound as “grunge.” Noted!
This was a pretty low key release, with very little promotion. Sonic Masala, however, picked up on it with favorable things to say.

You have to scroll down the page a bit to see it. It’s punctuated with the album cover.
My birthday was February 1st. I initially wanted to launch this new website on that day. Unfortunately, my girlfriend and I parted ways instead. It took a few days to recover from that stumble.
But hey. It’s here now. As with the old site, you will be able to find a ton of free MP3s. Some full length albums. More over time as I am moved to post them. Who knows what else will come of it? Videos? I don’t really know. Everything is suddenly a blank slate in my life so let’s be in this together.
This new blog format allows something that may be of interest to people who have worked with me. That is the search option. Want to find everything posted that you have contributed to with me? Type your name and read the screen.
Also, one may notice also that I am no longer referring to myself in the third person, as on the last website. I mean, let’s call a spade a spade: I am me. Since no one REALLY has much to sell beyond themselves, why not just be myself (whatever that is), cut and dried?
I want to be up front. Conversational. Loose. I’ve had enough science. I want people not only to know what I do, but also who I am…or at least some of the motivations behind what I do.
I am aware things are a little thin around here right now. That is on purpose. I’d like for this site to be something to explore over time – not the massive burst of information that the first one was. Don’t worry, though. The goodies will return.
So keep checking back. I aim to ultimately please.
