…and that’s my super-awesome little collage of albums in the sidebar showing what I’ve been listening to sure looks pretty, but it has a couple of drawbacks. If you don’t recognise the album covers, you’ll have no idea what I’ve been listening to (and I maintain – as indicated with an older post – that everyone wants to know what I’m listening to). Secondly, because it’s a widget generated from Last.fm data, if there isn’t any album art available there, it’s a no-show here. So here’s some stuff Last.fm seemingly don’t want you to know (or even know that you don’t know o.O).
…is awesome. I’ve been digging this music a lot the last couple of months – one of those nifty inadvertant discoveries that hooks you straight away. Via a different rec (which I’ll get to in a minute ;)), I found myself on the Bandcamp page for Free Loving Anarchists and this release:
Comprised of four tracks by Sealings and three by Lois Magic. Currently the deal is for a CD, cassette and immediate download of the release, for the princely sum of US$7.00 (limited to 100 physical copies and the one I received is #77 so I’m guessing it’d be getting close to sold out by now – go get it if you can).
It’s definitely well worth getting your hands on – Metropole is already my most played track for the last three months, which means it’s nothing short of awesome because I haven’t had it that long. Not going to go into too much detail with descriptors (really, awesome is enough ;)), but if you like your music to be simple, charming and chaotic all at the same time, check it out. Incidentally, Lois Magic is set to release a new cassette via Skrot Up, which I’ll be reviewing soon over at [sic], so keep an eye out for it there.
…was the rec that had me finding myself there in the first place, and a song called My Boyfriend’s Dead, which isn’t on the release but seems to have generated a bit of internet buzz around the place. And rightly so. t’is a sweet track. The Last.fm bio for Sealings is one word – DEATHGAZE. I agree, it’s pretty much all you need to know, but on the off-chance it’s not enough, just click some links and your curiosity will surely be sated.
What links? The ones above and maybe also these links for a free MP3:
So, now you know there’s no excuse for not knowing. But, you know, don’t just sit there all knowing, go listen to make sure you know for sure. Or something.
