I've been into DER for about 7 years now and I can't help but think that they've lost some of their edge. Latterman and Settlefish help to keep the roster fresh, but bands like Eleven Minutes Away and Fightstar seem pretty formulaic.

I'll always love this label and everything they stand for, but doubt there will ever be a return to the glory days of the early Emo Diaries and the White Octave!

Ahoy from England [27 Aug 2006|07:51pm]

Hello there, I'm Lia, from the fine land of England.

Order of bands most adored: Brandston, Last Days of April, Benton Falls, Settlefish (nearly went to Italy to see them this Summer), Cross my Heart...and the rest for I fear this will turn into a myspace type list.

Claim to fame; my ex boyfriend's band played with Red Animal War.

My take on Fightstar is that I cannot forgive Charlie's Busted days.

More importantly, anyone else stranded on this island who wishes to accompany me to gigs; this would be very useful.

I don't know if anyone's seen this yet, but I recently found this on youtube.
It's Logh's 'Yellow Light Means Slow Down, Not Speed Up'.
They really are an amazing band.

To whom it may concern,

I really like Slowride, Red Animal War, and Desert City Soundtrack.

Recently, I've been introduced to a band who calls themselves Sabotuer. I very much approve of them.

My boyfriend just got around to purchasing Deep Elm Records (Sound, Spirit, Fury, Fire), Emo Is Awesome / Emo Is Evil, Emo Is Awesome / Emo Is Evil 2 for me. Emo Is Awesome / Emo Is Evil 2 was on an offer for 0.01 at the moment, not sure if it still is, and I love it. Last Days of April is a great band.

From the ari thanos website:

We’re looking for a bassist between the ages of 18 and 22. You don’t have the share the same beliefs as us, but it is a major plus. If you can’t handle people talking openly about God on car rides home, then our band isn’t for you. Transportation, and an open work schedule, with free weekends, and flexibility to do smaller tours, and the occasional out of state show is a must. If you don’t have your own equipment, we can provide it for you. Our old bassist is willing to loan his equipment out to anyone who wants to join our band. (this includes a Ampeg SVT head, a 8x10 cab, and an American fender Jazz bass). If you can sing that’s a major plus. We would like to work someone into the lineup quickly if possible. Also looking for someone who has a strong DIY work ethic.


Call Jason if interested: 1.810.938.3157

i just sort of came to this revelation. burnsoutbright, and their distance and darkness ep, are so epic and brilliant. and it's sad that they aren't being recognized for their achievements in this. please, if you haven't yet, listen to this amazing band.

juice nuclear [09 Nov 2004|07:00pm]


i was bored, so i decided to scare up a list of my ten favourite bands on the deep elm record label. i don’t know why i chose deep elm, maybe because it’s a small record label and consequently i’d have an easier time differentiating between the good and the not so good. like… i don’t think i could do this for warp – i mean, i could get my ten favourite warp artist, and i could say for definite who was my favourite, but i couldn’t really differentiate between the remaining nine enough to put them in order. and if we we’re gonna talk about a label like road runner or earache i just couldn’t fucking do it. but luckily there are some incredibly special bands on deep elm, and they are varied enough for me to comfortably separate, so yeah.


anyway, it’d be aces if you could prove me wrong here, wake me up to some bands i’ve been missing, or whatever. and some of the bands here i’ve only heard about half of their stuff, so i’m pretty much counting on you to let me know the other half sucks before i go out and buy it. okay, here we go.


10) surrounded. i am the only one of my friends that likes this band. i don’t know why, since safety in numbers is an ace album. of course, they aren’t as commercially viable as other bands on this label, but they are still pretty spectacular.


9) desert city soundtrack. i’ve only really known about this band for a month, after an internet friend pointed me in the direction of some downloads, but these guys are really good. contents of distraction is a bastard of an ep, really fucking good. you should buy it.


8) sounds like violence. okay, here’s the thing – if sounds like violence release an album as good as the pistol ep is, they’ll move to like second in this list. you give me heart attacks is one of the best songs i have ever heard ever. i fucking adore this band.


7) brandtson. brandtson aren’t precisely spectacular, but if we’re talking about the sheer number of songs, these guys deserve mention. it’s definitely worth yr while to seek out at least one of their albums (i recommend ‘fallen star collection’, but if you prefer it angrier ‘trying to figure each other out’ is the release you need) and definitely, definitely, buy ‘dead animals’ if you get a chance. that is a good song.


6) seven storey. get dividing by zero and you’ll be mad at me for not putting this band in the top five. fast, raw, emotional – one of the first deep elm bands i liked. these guys rule.


5) last days of april. incredible swedish angst right here. i love the piano’s and the harmonies. the gentlest band on deep elm, i think (although i could be wrong, that’s why i need yr help) these guys are just ace.


4) red animal war. every one of their albums is worth owning… and one day i’ll get round to doing it. lol. some of their shits fast, some of it’s slow, some of it’s sad, some of it’s happy. they do anger and introspection (sometimes on the same song) and just rule absolutely.


3) planes mistaken for stars. one of the coolest bands on planet earth, these guys are screaming, screeching noise at it’s finest. they write abrasive and gut churning songs that are finished in minutes. oh, and one of their songs features words by rush limbaud. awesome.


2) slowride. if i was gonna play a deep elm record to my mother, this would be it. this is the closest to pop punk a deep elm band gets. like, if sum 41 learned to play their instruments and stopped only caring about money, they’re next song might be worthy of a slowride b-side. they have album titles like ‘building a building’ and ‘as i survive the suicide bomber’ and are just completely ace. buy this. play it at yr next party.


1) camber. a friend of mine, who had never heard of post-hardcore, asked me to define it. i lent him ‘wake up and be happy’. what can i say about camber? only rival schools do it better. if you don’t like camber then you don’t like post-hardcore. simple.


talk to me, dudes… i need to know i’m not wrong about this…
