Record Shop By The Snow Fairies

Sometimes (like after a prolonged Parts & Labor binge) I have to take a measured dose of Twee. And I'd say The Snow Fairies have just the right amount.

Downloadables:

WARNING: Twee has been known to cause headbobbing, vomitting, lightheadedness, a sweet taste in the mouth, and gential itching.

You Faux Pas By S-S-S-Spectres

Oh well. I missed S-S-S-Spectres and EX MODELS on Saturday. At the ERMP show on Saturday, Little Mike Bones' set seemed wrong. It was simply not music for a sunny/beautiful day. I'm sorry, but I simply could not sit through Hundred Eyes' set. They just seemed totally out of place. This was not music for the middle of the day, but rather late late at night. (And what was up with the schmata on the head? hmmm?). I went off in search of beer and did not return to The East River Amphitheater.
