Last month, my sister and I were Christmas shopping in a music store, and my sister walked up to me with an album and said, "Could you buy this for me?"
It turned out to be because of the coverart, which was really awesome, although we could not in fact make out the name of the band or the album because it was so abstract. To make a long argument short, she eventually bought it herself, and it turned out to rock. (Plus, with the CD inside, the art was even cooler, because you could turn it around and see different things in it.) The album is called Friend and Foe, the band is Menomena, and they have this fantastically odd homemade sound that's as weird as their coverart.
So, I'm going to upload a couple of their songs for you! Along with some other random stuff that I'm digging at the moment. I'll probably upload a few more when the Internet co-operates, so be sure to tell me what you think.
These are mostly m4a, which is what iTunes converts things to. They should play in WinAMP, but if anyone has any trouble, I'll either link to a site that will let you convert things or, if my connection is not sucking, do it myself and re-upload them.
Right!( Musics! )
I'll upload some more as soon as I beat Yousendit into submission.
