My Education was formed in Austin in 1999 by Brian Purington, Eric Gibbons and Sean Seagler, three refugees from San Angelo, TX. The band flirted briefly with the idea of vocals but soon decided they were never necessary to begin with and became a purely instrumental outfit.

With the addition of keyboardist Kirk Laktas (Stars of the Lid, Ultrasound, etc.), viola virtuoso James Alexander [ Cinders, ecfa ] and Floridian transplant guitarist Chris Hackstie, the lineup stabilized and their first album “5 Popes” was recorded at the Bubble with Chris “Frenchie” Smith [ 16 Deluxe, Young Heart Attack ] at the helm.

The self-released record peaked at number one on many college radio stations across North America. The band has toured Midwest, East Coast, and Canada multiple times since the original release of 5 Popes along w/ showcasing @ SXSW 2003-2006. The first self-released pressing of 5 Popes sold out in December 2003, and was promptly re-released on the Austin, TX-based record label Thirty Ghosts Records in January 2004.

In February 2003 the UK-based label, Jonathan Whiskey, released a 7 single for the song Concentration Waltz. My Education also has songs featured on the Rollerderby Records compilation The Speed by Which we Fall, and the Clairecords compilation Test Tones Vol. 2.3. After three years of blood, sweat, and tears My Education finally completed their 2nd CD, Italian, which was released on Thirty Ghosts Records on April 26th, 2005.

Review for "I Want to Stand Where the Sun Himself Shakes with Fear" by Voices from Deep Below

Even though the independent rock scene is quite inundated with new acts, there’s always a welcome place for an outfit that changes the formula enough to be consistently interesting and worth taking notice of. The New York-based alternative rock group Voices from Deep Below attempts to do just that, fusing together a variety of styles into a surprisingly coherent sound. Their new record, “I Want to Stand Where the Sun Himself Shakes with Fear”, is a five song album that navigates alt-rock, experimental, and borderline metal and progressive influences all at the same time.
