My latest discovery comes from the Land Down Under and goes by the name of What's Left Is Yours. The 3-piece punk outfit is currently streaming their debut self-titled EP and offering it as a pay what you want download. They're playing a catchy-sing-along-Hardcoreish Pop-Punk. Confused? Let me explain: Being the sucker that I am, I got hooked at the 0:25 mark of the highly addictive opening song "Punk Rock Party". But when I started listening to "Insanity", the song that followed, I was like "Fuck, am I listening to the same band?!" A completely different sound from the first tune, a much more heavy and less poppy approach that somehow reminded me of Only Crime, and it didn't stop there...I've been brought back to Blink-182's "Dude Ranch" era as soon as the 3rd song "Mexico" kicked in... Anyway, I'll stop there and let you guys judge it for yourself. If you like diversity and you feel like being all mixed up in a good way, give a listen to the Aussies in What's Left Is Yours here. Favorite track: "Insanity"

I just finished a new studio album. I began recording this past winter – in my freezing shed. Lance Koehler, of Minimum Wage Studio here in Richmond, tied in a great recording set up and I built an isolation booth around it out of pallets, scrap carpet, blankets and other sound proofing material. Recording outside of a traditional studio setting gave me the freedom to track when I FELT it. I was never forced to play and record based on reserved studio days with time constraints. I feel truly lucky to have recorded in the shed and at my leisure.
Josh Small and my sister Caitlin accompanied me on a handful of songs and then some how the whole project fell into place. I picked 13 songs that I felt like worked well together and back burner-ed the rest for whatever comes next. The recordings were mastered by Brent at The Kitchen in Carrboro, NC earlier in the week and it’s been sent to Chunksaah Records. Release date, album title and track listing will be announced in the near future. With a new album comes tons of touring. I look forward to being back on the road and visiting with you all. Thank you much.
We’ll keep you posted as more details on Tim Barry’s new album come to light. His latest record 40 Miler was released in 2012 through Chunksaah Records.Add to My Radar
