Just ordered yer Highschool Guitar... very much looking forward to listening in full, the samples got to me :beer:

 

Oh wow, thanks a lot! I believe there's only like 15 copies (or less) left of that one. I'm pretty happy with it too. Cheers!

Downloaded this tonight, and it's great. Standout for me is 'Didn't Sleep At All'. Somehow brought back memories of what was so good about late 80s/early 90s 'indie' (for want of a better word), and as someone who grew up with a love of labels like 4AD I can't think of more of a compliment than that. May take a little longer for the Orick tracks to sink in properly, but they certainly don't sound like anything I was expecting. The remixes are really good too. Now waiting for the 7"s to arrive. Good work, all.

Wow man, that IS a big compliment! Someone recently told me my guitar sound reminded them of Lush, and I couldn't have been more proud of that! And yeah, I have no shame about admitting that my inner pop songwriter is totally stuck in that era. For example, this would be a gigantic influence on "Didn't Sleep At All":

southern son is outstanding

didnt sleep at all. first time i heard you sing. catchy song

 

godamn

 

Thanks dude! I really had to be coaxed out of my comfort zone to release something with vocals, but despite that, I am actually pretty happy with the song. The ending riff-out is probably one of the most well-executed pop things I've ever done.

 

Also, for this week only, Attacknine has started a promotional thing where anyone who "Likes" the label on Facebook gets to download the A-sides for free:

Lush was one of the bands I was thinking of. De Luxe is my favourite tracks of theirs from my fave EP Mad Love (my jumping-on point for me). No shame in drawing inspiration from tunes of such magnitude.

Yeah, I agree. Pop music being what it is, I don't really sit down to write music like this and actually think "I'm going to reinvent this shit"...it's all about just feeling good and pulling from stuff I like, and trying to be as natural and unassuming as possible. Also I wish I had a female vocalist like Miki to do harmonies with me. All by myself I feel like I sound like the guy from Starflyer 59 only way wimpier.

 

I really need to pick up all the Lush stuff I like on vinyl. Only have it on CD currently. That will soon change!

No idea actually. Only that I was slightly late in shipping them back to Nick after I signed them.

 

Oh and by the way, thanks for picking up OLII. That shipped today.

ahh, i fell asleep and was about 6 hours late to the preorder, here's to hoping i got a copy with the prints and sigs.

 

and no problem, it was pretty much a no decision after you claimed it was better than high hawaiin fog.. figured i'd have to decide for myself. :music:

This arrived today, and damn sexy it all is too. Plus got a signed copy with prints, pretty awesome. Thanks to Orick and yourself Brian; there are a lot of us who still appreciate such efforts.

      Fucking FINALLY. I have an original copy of Dry I picked up on Discogs a few years ago, that wasn't in as good a condition as expected. So I may pick up a reissue. I also got a bootleg of Stories From the City, Stories From the Sea I picked up last year at Amoeba SF. Sounds and looks good so I suppose that will do me well enough and I don't need to replace that. BUT, I very much look forward to getting Rid of Me with a quickness, and eventually To Bring You My Love. The others? We'll see.

      Yo WATMM heads, just pinging you here to letcha know that I have been in a housey-funk mood lately with Milieu and now there's an hour of stuff like this at Recycled Plastics. Recommended if you liked Shallow Earth, and bonus points to anyone who can trainspot any of the samples used here. Price capped at $5.55, also!
      Long distance hugs and virtual high fives,
      Your pal Brian
