the 8 bit revival

this is the lead track from a 4 track EP called "up and atom", my favourite song on there. it's bouncy braid / promise ring worship from 2003 or so, back when no-one was going near this style of music. here is my review from the time. the band made a few records post this, but never quite hit the heights that they do here for my money. lovely stuff.

the brighest comet II

so i was just scrolling through a bunch of old posts on here, and there was a deleted comet made by "andi camp" on a man i fell in love with post. that was odd, i thought. i clicked on it, and it took me to a blog with 2 posts made in 2013, but it definitely was by andi camp who was in ribbon fix, and things. i wondered what andi had wanted to say about man i fell in love with, and then what had prompted her to delete it. and then i wondered about the brightest comet. there was one video on youtube already, winter time, so i uploaded "three".

and then i uploaded "perfect"

and here's "girth" that i found online

hopefully andi is still out there making music.

three minute movie

got one for you. only a year late. three minute movie is a snuffy smile band from ages ago. they had a couple of albums then disappeared. they seem to be about again though, playing shows, probably not sounding a whole lot like they used to. their cd "rhythm of wind and water" was rather braid-esque, whilst "the film reflects a dramatic city" was more superchunk. here's the lead track from "rhythm..." and i hope you agree that it is quite the belter.
