The Just Exactly Perfect Brother Band . . .

Gets an app Just Exactly Perfect in concept. Thanks for taking the time to do this. Certainly makes all the time I spent spinning tape and burning cds seem like a tremendous waste! I do have one single suggestion at this point; give some thought to shrinking the vertical height of the tiles by 50% or so; there is a great deal of empty blue background that might otherwise busy itself by providing additional content. Indeed, I suspect you could get twice as many years on each screen without sacrificing anything in terms of information or readability. Whether you think the suggestion useful or no, I will remain thrilled finally to have a mobile streaming platform that, unlike the shoddy IA app itself, is reliable and the subject of ongoing developer attention. You’ve performed a service to posterity. Thanks again!

Used to work perfectly

I give this app five stars because last time I left a review, the developer read my review and fixed any issues I had in the next update. Beyond those issues the app was all I could ask for and more. However, yesterday I was listening to a concert from ‘76 and when I went to switch over to ‘81 all I would get is an error message saying that there was a network error. So I restarted the app and now it says it has no internet connection. But I know for a fact I have internet connection because safari still works, Apple Music works fine, and iMessage works flawlessly. If you could find a way to fix this issue this app would return to its status as the perfect app to hear live Grateful Dead concerts along with various other bands

Hey there, so sorry for the issue! My server’s domain expired which prevented the app from get a connection. The servers are back up — if you’re still getting the error, please try restarting your phone. That’s what fixed it for me. If it still doesn’t work please reach out to me via email at

Thanks for using attics, so happy to hear you enjoy the app. Sorry again for the downtime.

Excellent for exploring the Grateful Dead!

super simple and organized interface.
everything is in chronological order and it's just exactly perfect for finding a specific show. audio quality is pretty good too and having the main page be by a singular band is really good for those of us just using the app for dead tapes.
i only have 2 minor complaints that i hope can be fixed in a future update

1) theres a noticeable and always changing pause between songs. sometimes it's a split second of silence other times it's a little longer even with downloaded shows. it's not enough to kill the ">" but it definitely takes a bit out of the energy out of certain China>Riders and heavy drops into The Other One

2) Downloaded shows do not have a special marking on their title card in your saved shows library. it makes it hard to find which shows you have downloaded unless you remember exactly which ones they were

again these are minor inconsistencies in an other wise consistently functioning and well designed app for exploring the music of the grateful dead
( and other bands )

Developer Response ,

Thanks for the review and great feedback! When I get some time to work on the app again fixing pauses in between songs is the top priority. Great suggestion for adding a marker for downloaded shows, I’ll definitely add that in as well.

Glad you enjoy Attics and thanks again for the feedback!
