The Florida summer is on the way, and if you can’t tell by all the pollen, flowers, and general heat in the air, then we’ve got a little recording from August of last year to remind you. The four-track effort comes from Orlando, Fla.-based outfit Donor, whose lineup is made up of some familiar characters.
The project (which is releasing thangs via Gainesville, Fla. imprint Jeremy Records) features members of You Blew It!, Dikembe, Crucial Dudes, and You’ll Live, but don’t call it a side project.
”I wouldn’t really call Donor or solo stuff I have a break from another project,” guitarist Tanner Jones (of YBI!) told SubAp! in a message. “Individually we’re all writing music constantly, so it’s really just an excuse to play music with my friends when YBI is in a lull.” Jones is also particularly fond of singer Jason Bittner (of Crucial Dudes).
“[He] is an incredible vocalist/musician, so I knew that I had to ride his bandwagon of musicianship somehow,” added Jones, “Donor was my personal way of doing that.”
Have a listen to all the coat tail riding and get ready for the miserably fantastic heat of summer by streaming the EP below. Grab a 7″ copy for your damn self here or purchase it as part of a sweet Paperweight Records bundle by clicking here.

We’ve been short on Brian Mahar photo posts as of late. Sorry. That doesn’t mean that the St. Pete-based photog hasn’t been lurking at anyone of The ‘Burg’s numerous venues catching snaps of the infinite number of local and touring acts that come through town on the daily. Have a look at some shots from a February show by Missouri’s Roundheels and the 727′s own Kid Aids below.
The Bright Light Social Hour are Bay are regulars by now. They’ve been coming here for years now, and the mutual love affair only grows with time. They did not disappoint last week, bringing their usual energy and soulfulness, and even playing a few new songs from their upcoming album. Check out some photos below.
Spaceface kept things going with their brand of sometines dancy, sometimes punchy rock, some pretty interesting light displays, and even a Colour Revolt cover at the end, which is always welcome. Check out some photos below.
Swimm opened things up last week at the State and brought their usual amount of awesomeness. Check out some photos below.
