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.

Recommended Listening: Octaves - Which Way The Wind Blows

I’m really enjoying this new record from Octaves. It’s diverse and dynamic enough so that it feels impossible to pin down completely, but at times it reminds me of a more technical Touche Amore, a more frenetic mewithoutYou or a more melodic/less pissed Converge.¬†The bottom line is that it’s awesome and you should buy it.

You can do that here.

Not-So-Random Start: Octaves, “Be Angry at the Sun for Setting on a Set of Sons”

Canadian superhero/tastemaker/baseball guru¬†Drew Fairservice of Getting Blanked mentioned these guys on Twitter yesterday, so I checked them out. (Drew has exceptional taste in music.) I’ve been listening to them pretty much nonstop ever since. If you like Botch, Deadguy, Everytime I Die, The Bled (RIP), and/or slightly less AGGRO Dillinger Escape Plan stuff, there’s definitely something for you in the eight songs that make up Greener Pastures.

Buy it here.
