It’s Monday. And Rob Levy showed up and threw some music at me (Widge) to throw at all of you. If you enjoy what you hear/see here, then use the links and snag them from our Amazon store, would you? That helps pay for things like therapy. And coffee. Which in our world…is the same damn thing.
First up, we have an album by Dean and Britta that’s a bit unique. It’s a series of songs that they would play while some of Andy Warhol’s screen tests were being shown: 13 Most Beautiful… Songs For Andy Warhol’s Screen Tests. And now the project is out on CD. And DVD as well. Here’s a trailer to give you a taste…
Next, Rob recommended the 3-CD Deluxe Edition of Disintegration by The Cure. Granted, I’m cheating a bit, because this acoustic version of “Lovesong” isn’t actually on that release. Which is odd. Also odd is that the song was only available as a bonus disc on a limited edition version of their Greatest Hits, which you can snag from Amazon used here. Sorry for cheating, but sometimes a song you’ve heard a lot needs a little bit of a changeup, you know?
And lastly, we have a bit from Thieves Like Us and their second full-length album, Again & Again. Here’s “Shyness”:
That’s available as a CD only from Amazon at the moment.
