First week at the new job was pretty good! I think I’m really going to like it there! It’s a little strange to be able to pass the buck on the database interaction portion – but that’s what I wanted – I suppose I should get used to it.
Anyhow, on to the purpose of this post. For those who know me know that I these days I listen to the Indie Pop Rock genre, which in layman’s terms pop & rock music released by bands that are Independent i.e. aren’t played on the radio 24/7. There is a station on somafm.com that caters to this group conveniently called Indie pop rocks where I get my regular fix. While listening to Indie Pop Rocks they played the song “Youth Tunes” by the band Little Girls which I instantly fell in love with.
After humping the song on YouTube for about a week today I decided I wanted to listen to more music from this band. I found their myspace page and an article about them on wikipedia which describes the songs as “combination lo-fi distorted surf rock with layers of haunting, and melodic walls of sound.” Right up my alley – I know, and Canadian!
There was a brief moment of butthurt when I tried to buy the mp3 album from Amazon.com – apparently mp3 albums are only available to U.S. customers, and Amazon.ca didn’t carry the album despite having a Canadian music section, but I digress, I decided to check their labels website and low and behold I was able to download the mp3 album in full via their website for only $10!
Shop Little Girls @ Paperbag Records – I’m listening to it now and I love it.
Christ and now I’m looking at their other bands and they’ve got Woodhands on here too, you’ll have to excuse me, I have to go check my Paypal balance!
