Sorry, at the moment I’m being fucked over by exams which is why the updates haven’t existed in the last few days. however, what has just come into my mailbox passes as a little bit of a blog post, so I’ll just copy and paste it. i’ve talked about the brainlove Festival and Jam on bread and Mat Riviere before, so you can just class this as an extension of it.

RIYL: indie pop, The Radio Dept., clever wordplay and baroque funeral electro.
Mat Riviere (aka Matthew) deals in what we’ll call baroque funeral electro. Jam on Bread (aka Steve) is an urban traveller, detailing the highs and lows of 21st century life (staying inside, wishing you were some kind of sea mammal, having a beard) using just a ukelele and a keen sense of humour. They’ve been on tour together once already this year, and they’ll be doing so again this summer. Life! Death! Prizes! has three tracks from each, and is released as a handmade CDR on May 11th 2009.
Here’s two of the wonderful tracks from the album for download from mediafire:
Jam on Bread – The Pros and Cons of Having A Beard (he does have a beard and I am envious)
Mat Riviere – Castroreale
Everything will be back to normal in about 24 hours, okay?
