No, not the blog. I just haven't had internet for the past couple weeks. Here's a free tip for anyone planning to move to New York: Don't use Time Warner Cable if you can help it.

That little preface aside, the title is actually in reference to the new Tears Run Rings single by the same moniker. To get us all ready for their upcoming sophomore album Distance, the long distance quartet/quintet decided to mercilessly tease us with "Forgotten" in both .mp3 and video format. Comfortably nestled in what I so eloquently like to call "swirly shoegaze" Tears Run Rings make their noise using generous quantities of modulation rather than the wall of fuzz that the "fuzzy shoegaze" groups generate. Since Distance isn't due out for another month, I'm going to have to make due with dusting off my old Pale Saints and Lush records. Blast. Luckily, it's already available for preorder from Tonevendor, so all you impatient and forgetful types can get that out of the way now.
