RIP The Noise Is

Hey everyone,

So it’s about time that I end this wonderful blog that I had been doing for so long. I started it in 2009 pretty much as a dumb leak blog and I eventually turned it into something I really loved doing. I became exposed to so much amazing music and met a ton of great people, and I really hope I spread some of that onto you. As I’m graduated from college now, I’m going to be focusing on other things now and I think it’s a good time to end The Noise Is.

One thing I will be spending a majority of my time on from now on is a record label that I recently started called Jurassic Pop. As of right now, it’s mostly cassettes of Indiana bands, but we’re going to be doing vinyl in the near future and hopefully expanding farther than just the great state of Indiana.

Thanks again to those who stuck with my site (even when I wasn’t posting much), I’m grateful for every person that came to my blog.


P.S. I’m probably not going to be doing a top 50 albums of 2012, but here’s my top five.

1. Cloud Nothings – Attack On Memory
2. Japandroids – Celebration Rock
3. Sleeping Bag – Women Of Your Life
4. Stagnant Pools – Temporary Room
5. Gap Dream – Gap Dream

I’m DJing @ the Happy Dog This Saturday

So next week, my summer in Cleveland will be over and I will head back to Indiana for my last year of school. But before I leave, I’ll have my last Cleveland hurrah at the Happy Dog this Saturday. I’ll be DJing from 6pm to 9pm and I’ll be spinning a ton of the new LPs I’ve gotten over the past couple months! So it’d be cool if y’all came out and say hey (or cya) and ate some hot dogs while I play Megachurch or John Maus or something else cool.
