The 11 Best Songs By dispatch

There's no better example of East Coast/West Coast divide than with the band Dispatch.  Dispatch is an East Coast college staple.  You couldn't get a diploma from an Eastern Time Zone college in the late 90s if you hadn't spent one night baking out to Bang Bang or Silent Steeples.  But if you went to school on the West Coast...the mere mention of the term "dispatch" made you think the cops were on the way to break up your party.  The only people on the West Coast who even know who the band were...are transplants from the East Coast who brought their box of CDs with them.  You never heard their albums thrown into mixes because they were always outvoted in Southern California by Sublime and in Northern California by Primus...and in Pac Norwest by Soundgarden (still!). Maybe a 12 year hiatus is what the band needs to seep into the audio pores of the rest of the country.

Here are the 11 Best Songs By Dispatch:
  1. Flying Horses (Silent Steeples)
  2. Time Served  (Who Are We Living For?)
  3. Lightning (Who Are We Living For?)
  4. Mission (Bang Bang)
  5. Railway (Bang Bang)
  6. Mayday  (Silent Steeples)
  7. Even  (Who Are We Living For?)
  8. Melon Bend (Dispatch EP)
  9. Headlights (Who Are We Living For?)
  10. Turn This Ship Around (Dispatch EP)
  11. Cover This (Four Day Trials)
Buy Dispatch's new album, Circles Around The!!

Smash Haus Music Group upends the traditional music licensing and custom music industry by directly engaging large media production entities in Television, Film, Advertising and New Media to create more value to these clients by creating music as an internal asset for them. Smash Haus technology is essentially a large scale production force that employs many top Hollywood music makers and industry workers to create scalable income.

Owners Dylan Berry and Noah Lifschey are not your typical media executives. Both are composers in their own right and are currently composing the Network Theme Package for the Time Warner Sports Network including the Los Angeles Lakers, Galaxy, Sparks and more. They can also be heard on top-rated TV shows like The Academy Awards, Americas Best Dance Crew, The Sing Off, American Idol, So You Think You Can Dance?, Surviving The Cut, MTV Music Video Awards, Root Sports Theme Package and many more ...

"We felt that it was important to get ahead of what is not working in the music for media industry. Advertising revenue is spread out, budgets are shrinking, YouTube and new media is overturning traditional TV, its just a fact. We decided to go into business directly with our clients and composers and create a work platform that was direct and could build value and income for all involved."
