Atombender is known locally for their energetic and chaotic live shows and melodic punk sound mixed with the unique sounds of trumpet, trombone, and keyboards. Drawing from a huge variety of influences, Atombender’s sound can’t exactly be pigeonholed, and that’s the way they like it.

Today’s Video Flashback is from the band Watashi Wa with their song “All of Me” off the album “The Love of Life” (2003 Tooth & Nail Records). Members of this band have gone to play with Eager Seas, Lakes and Bonnie Dune. Seth even played guitar for Mxpx on a few tours. I hosted a show with this band back in 2001 before they signed with T&N and when they were still working with Bettie Rocket. Great guys with some of the best music around. They released two full lengths on Bettie Rocket, one full length on Tooth & Nail (there was a second full length on T&N under the ‘Watashi Wa’ name but it was originally meant as an Eager Seas release). Such solid music from a talented band.
