So I'll just go ahead and say it. The new(ish) Brilliant Colors album is light-years better than their old EPs. It's simultaneously more polished and more raw (alternately, I've heard "punk" thrown around), Jess' voice has more presence, and with more experience I would say the three of them have gotten better at what they do (makes sense, right?). With its raw guitars, reverb, and poignant lyrics, Introducing is 24 minutes of DIY pop fun. Think Kleenex meets The Flatmates or Shop Assistants and you're in the ballpark. You can pick up a spiffy copy on CD or vinyl from Slumberland. Should I Tell You .mp3
I've always been more of a Kleenex than LiLiPUT guy. They're kind of raw, kind of punk, and all kinds of catchy. This is their self titled 7" and it's a must have for fans of grrrl groups.
The stuff I post on here is for primarily for sampling purposes. If you like something you hear, you should go buy the album. And while you're at it, you should buy a t-shirt so the world can see that you support good things.
If you're a band and want something taken down, just say so. I'd say you should sleep on it first. Or at least have some cookies. If you're certain you still want something removed, I can make that happen.
If you're a band and you think that you fit in with what I talk about, then let me know right now! I'll put up a nice little blurb, and a picture, and some files (if they're available). It'll be a good time.
