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.

Disclaimer: The views and opinions presented on this blog are mine and mine only, and do not reflect the position or views of Thrice as a whole.

And Just Like That, I’m Buried In New Music

Buy Young Widows’ In And Out Of Youth And Lightness for $7 here.

Buy TV On The Radio’s Nine Types Of Light for $8 here.

Buy Foo Fighters’ Wasting Light for $10 here.

Buy Thursday’s No Devolucion for $8 here.

I picked these records up this morning, and while I’m happy to have all this new music, I’m scared that I’m not going to find adequate time to really sit and digest them all until later this year. I love release days like this, but hate them too.

What did you pick up today?
