Hi all. This is dangerously close to doing a SweeGor but it's for a good cause and that.
At the end of the year I like to compile some of the tracks I've made in the last 12 months into a little.. thing, and this time I've come up with a little album of 8 songs. I say that it is by Lumieres but it is actually by me. It sounds stupid putting my real name to a song, unless your name is Chris Rea or something equally badass. It's called Quiet Steps and you can download it here:
What is it? Sort of electronic and that. It doesn't make much sense. There's a chiptune song. Someone said that a bit of it sounded like Fuck Buttons. There's also an over-earnest cover of Republica's Ready To Go, which I think we can all agree has been crying out for being revisited all these years. Where's Saffron? Is she dead? Dead... SEXY?
It's free, but if you donate money for it in January that will go to Macmillan. Macmillan are a cancer support charity; they do donate some money for supporting cancer research and prevention activities, but the focus is on supporting patients and their families/carers. I was split between supporting them and CRUK; the latter do good stuff, and I've worked in a research group that they supported heavily. But they're so good at running promotional activities themselves.
And finally if there are any other bands on here who would like to throw in with this please get in touch. It'd be really cool to give a little package of music away to donators.
"..sorry, don't know who you are, pal."
