My name is Riley, and I play drums and write music for a band called Thrice.

This is where I ramble about music, sports, food, books, the interwebs and whatever else I deem worthy of sharing.

In addition to my ramblings here, I'm also the co-founder of a baseball-specific twitter feed podcast and blog with my good friend Ian, called Productive Outs.

I also have a bandcamp page and a soundcloud page that I'll be posting my own music and remixes on every once in a while.

Not-So-Random Start: KEN Mode, “Counter Culture Complex”

Pitchfork debuted a new track from KEN Mode’s forthcoming album Entrench, due out on  March 15, and it’s a monster. I can’t say I’m surprised, as they’ve been cranking out some of my favorite heavy, energetic, riff-driven noise rock for years. Their last record, Venerable, was No. 9 on “My 12 Favorite Records of 2011” for OC Weekly, and knowing that they recorded the new record with one of my favorite producers (Matt Bayles) has me unreasonably excited to hear the rest of it.
