random stuff for your enjoyment!

We'll be starting off the musical randomness today with The Long Winters, a band who should be far more widely known than they are right now, so I thought I'd spread the word a little. The 2 albums they've recorded The Worst You Can Do Is Harm and When I Pretend To Fall show the band have a quirky brand of music and lyrics, with a melody that will have you singing along in seconds...

The Long Winters - The New Girl

They also have full-length mp3s available for download here - check 'em out!

Damien Rice, that guy who was on nearly everyone's music lists in 2003, remember him? yes? good! well, he used to be in a band called Juniper, but he left them to go solo - did the rest of the band sit around crying? no! they recorded 2 albums with the new band Bell x1, Neither Am I and Music In Mouth - both of which have moments of brilliance which you can sample here (Beautiful Madness) and here (Eve The Apple of my Eye)

And now we move on to a full menu at the Twee Corner.

The Love Letter Band - Blind
Snow Fairies - Lovers In The Countryside
Laura Watling - Wonderful Disappointment
Tiny Microphone - Answering Machine Girlfriend
Empress - Vodka and the Verlaines

Thabks a lot for posting these songs¡¡ I really like this style of music so 'naive', like Sarah Records and 'anorak-pop. I will come here often to check your recommendations¡

PD: I had just registered a blog, but is still in 'test stage'

Thanks, anti-hero, I'll check out that site.

Here are some twee/Field Mice links for you all:

http://www.bubbyworld.com/waaah/waaahfront.htm

Bull 3-0 gets you to a page with links to mp3's with a lot of good (and bad) stuff.
I'm partial to the Bedflowers cut; the Field Mice "Galaxies" is kind of shoegazy.

And

http://www.bubbyworld.com/waaah/bull4-0.htm

links to a live song from a Field Mice concert in Paris.

There's also a link to a site for Trembling Blue Stars.



http://catherine.poinsignon.free.fr/Field.htm

gets you the whole Field Mice concert.

Me, I'm looking for Even As We Speak, the Blueboy Bank of England, and the Shop Assistants' Will Anything Happen?

So if anyone has any leads ....
