Quick Before it Melts

Two points

by  |  December 14, 2012

A short but very sweet post today, featuring one of the artists from my favourite albums of 2012 list, Eight And A Half.  The band recently released a pair of remixes they did for a couple of friends, namely Stars and Trust.  All three artists will be making an appearance on these pages in the next week as part of a pretty special series of posts: from Monday to Friday next week, I’ll be sharing with you not one, not two, not three, not four, but FIVE downloadable compilations of my favourite songs of 2012.  15 songs each day, for a grand whopping total of 75 songs that helped soundtrack the year for me.  Keep your eyes peeled for the first post on Monday morning, and be sure to collect all five.

While you’re at it, add these remixes to your library, too, and impress your friends and family.

Until next week!

In it, you'll hear a the broad strokes of someone who's explored a range of sonic influencers--from 13th Floor Elevators to Ride, The Velvet Underground to Atlas Sound--and is now drilling down through the gauzy haze of guitar drone to find their essence, their truth.
