well, i guess i am going to be around. i had all good intentions of getting into a bunch of records that i neglected to pay attention to throughout the year, but all good intentions are meant to be ignored. ill still probably touch on a few over the next couple of weeks, or at least attempt to. i first saw mention of this record, milwaukee’s eric & magill’s all those i know, on timothy showalter aka mr strand of oaks’ facebook page, and figured if he was pimping it, i should probably check it out. should mention that its a free record. so, there it sat for a few days, then it ended up on ryan at muzzle of bees best of the year list. two trusted sources couldnt be wrong was my thinking, and they werent at all. ive listened to it about 10 times over the past 3 or 4 days and i cant get enough. its an interesting mix of organic and electronic sounds and textures. ive been trying to liken it to something, but i havent been able to think of anything better than maybe beth orton’s classic trailer park. kinda folky, kinda electronic, kinda poppy, kinda breezy, kinda cold, but 100 percent awesome. def could have been top ten material… did i mention its free via their bandcamp site.
should have been listening to: eric & magill's all those i know
