I would have never expected anyone to have heard of this on here and I think you would be the person I'd have been the least likely to guess if I tried. How'd you come across it?
I would have never known about that album if it wasn't for a record club that I was in. Graveface Records (out of Savannah, GA) have a records club where you pay a fee and you get everything they put out for the next 10 releases. I did two different rounds with them and thought I was done. I received a package from them recently by surprise and The Human Eye was in it.
I can't say that I love/like everything that I have received from Graveface but it is fun getting albums that I would never have heard otherwise. How do you know that band?
Edit: Regarding the Cloud Cult discussion, Happy Hippo all the way!

Could you please start a list for me Burrito? I would like to put RGC - 3 on it. Man, I wish I could see this performed live.
God, you're telling me. I've had so many opportunities to see them live in the last couple years and just never made it happen. I was trying to go to the record release show a couple weeks back but my friend talked me into going to a mediocre bluegrass show instead. Alan says they're touring more later this year so who knows.
Thanks for posting that. I didn't know RGC played low songs at their shows as well. That is fucking wicked. I have been wanting to see "Breaker" live really bad. Thanks again for bringing this album to my attention. It has been on heavy rotation since picking it up. Mind melting good.

If anybody is in Bellingham there is a Dog Shredder show @ The Redlight tonight. It says doors are at 9PM and it is a $5 cover. It is a tiny place (maybe holds 40). Black Beast Revival is opening. Dog Shredder are incredible and I can't recommend it enough. I am going for sure.

I think it is hilarious how every year Mr. Baker goes on the airwaves reporting how the Mariners are mashing homeruns in batting practice. Riveting story and is obviously telling that we are going to be an offensive juggernaut.
Edit: At least it is baseball talk again. I was getting pretty tired of the Lance Armstrong/Manti/Sonics talk.

When I got home I had a package in the mail from Graveface Records. I was on the Record Club with them for the last couple of rounds and thought my membership had to be renewed. Nice surprise! The package came with:
Serengeti - Saal (vinyl/CD) Gramma's Boyfriend - The Human Eye (vinyl) Toman - Postrockhits Volume II (vinyl)

I don't know if Sasquatch is ready for this kind of awesome. They were epic last night in Bellingham. The show was sold out and I was pretty far back but it was still trachea rattling music and contained many radical breakdowns. They sounded great. I can't wait for them at the Gorge!
