Me Like Bees | July 17, 2017
ONCE AGAIN OUR FRIENDS IN ME LIKE BEES ARE PROVIDING THE CROSS COUNTRY GIGGLES AND KEEPING US ABREAST OF THEIR BREASTS AS THEY TOUR THE UNITED STATES AGAIN BECAUSE THEY'RE ONE OF THE BEST BANDS NOT (VISIBLY) ON PERCOCET + LEAN. WE LOVE YOU TIM, LUKE, J-THRILL, PETE,  AND PETE'S ALTER-EGO "POPPA PETE: THE CAUTIOUS KITTEN". GET BRO AND SHOW INFORMATION AT THEIR FACEBOOK PAGE!  CLICK HERE FOR TICKETS! 7/14/17: They say you can’t see much of this beautiful country if you never leave the highway and they are absolutely fucking correct. CAN’T. SEE. SHIT. Indiana looks just like Illinois. Missouri smells just like Kentucky and all Love’s Truck Stops have a McDonalds and Subway attached to it like a cancerous tumor. I made the best of my time today by building storage compartments out of gaffers...

Rare Monk - Happy Haunting

One Song: Rare Monk - Happy Haunting

Joel Frieders | June 30, 2017
Sometimes I listen to music just to hold my arms out at my sides like I'm flying a cute little airplane. Sometimes I breathe through my exposed teeth as I stare blankly out of my window.  Sometimes I do both of the above things with the proper soundtrack. Rare Monk came through with a gang of tanqueray on "Happy Haunting", sounding like a blissed out Band of Horses but without all that unnecessary plaid and clove cigarettes. It's like these jagbags hacked into my dreams, downloaded what I wanted to feel like, and then proceeded to both create and murder my original wants and transform them into these Rare Monk-ian demonstrations of audible perfection. Here's hoping this band doesn't go down in history as having the best intentions but the worse cotton mouth on the planet, because...

Catching Up On 2017 - Multi-Album Review

Tom Doz | June 30, 2017
You may have noticed that we've been, for the most part, absent for 2017. SYFFAL is now pretty much just me (Tom) and Joel. Oh...and Tif, but she has the cushy job of going to free shows and taking pictures. Joel is one of those people who has 20 kids and likes to take on a ton of projects at one time. He has been supz busy - no joke and/or exaggeration - dude is an alderman (or as he likes to call it alder-bro), he has his day job selling (legal) drugs, another day job in commercial real estate, he is a bee keeper, just helped put on a summer music fest, a cross fitter and a father.   Me? Well, I'm lazy in comparison. I don't really have an excuse nor do I feel like I'd need to have an excuse. I still love music. I still love boner jokes. I just haven't loved writing I...


Joel Frieders | June 16, 2017
I am knee deep in the longest musical depression of my adult life.  Since November 6th, 2016, I haven't had the patience to listen to a new album on the whole. I used to listen to life without skipping a damn thing. Since November 6th, 2016, I haven't wanted anything to do with the things music makes me feel. Music used to make me feel like I could walk into anything naked. Since November 6th, 2016, I've replaced my hunger for music and somehow become completely absorbed with the daily news cycle. I turn anxious within hours of not knowing what news is breaking.  In breaking news I'm fucking broken.  If it isn't AP News on Spotify at the top of every hour, it's a daily news podcast giving me all I need to know for the day. If I'm not listening to something like the news, I've taken to...
