Closed Cages

DeadLight Poets Release Second Single – Available for free download!

The second single released by DeadLight Poets defines the genre that they call “circus punk”, and is available for free download now! Give the song a listen, and look out for upcoming shows by the DeadLight Poets in the next few months.

“The Mass Amusement EP” Available For Free Download

Sam Gleason’s five-song EP is now available for free download, payment optional. The EP is meant to create a series of songs revolving around a commercial purpose, the opposite of what he usually creates. The need for marketable songs tends to be a requirement in today’s music industry. However, the title track is a mockery of this entire concept, and mocks the rest of the songs on the EP as well. Download it for free now!

The Weird Apples Release Debut Single – “Lover From Another”

The Weird Apples came together when former members of the band Olsen Court returned home from college. They played shows all throughout the Hudson Valley during the summer, and found just enough time to record a single before they all went back to college. Lover From Another was recorded in Sam Gleason’s bedroom studio, a location which helped contribute to the song’s garage rock sound. It’s now available for free download right here!


“One Take, Room 8″ Available For Free Download

The album I recorded in my dorm room freshman year is now available for free right here on your computer. Give it a listen, and if you like it, help yourself to a download.
