The "Hurtful Nothings" EP showcases the range of The Das Binky Recording Collective, with entries in the pop, rock, folk, metal and electronica genres.

The songs cover a wide lyrical gamut: John Crossman sings a twisted rebuke to the Adele's of the world on the electro-pop tune "I Am Your Weakness"; Leslie Hudson takes on the role of Galadriel in the Lord of the Rings themed metal epic "All Shall Love Me and Despair"; Expendable Friend wonderfully captures the fragility of relationships-in-transition in "Cannot", Jordan Hirsch croons a traditional pop-love song in Alison, and John Das Binky runs from an unlikely foe in "Mennonite Mob" and leads a somber spiritual in "I Know I Am Done."

Featuring many of the same voices and talents from "Divide the Storm" along with several new collaborators, "Hurtful Nothings" looks to demonstrate that catchy tunes can be found in any form.

Hurtful Nothings is available exclusively as a pay-what-you-like download through Bandcamp.

It's yours for free. If you want to throw a few dollars my way, that'd be awesome. It's your call. Suggested Donation is $3. If you like it, drop me a note at and let me know. That's payment enough!
