This board is just too inviting for me not to put a couple of links up.
Trouble Books and Talons' are both bands on a tiny living room record label, called Bark & Hiss, out in Akron, Ohio. I came across them in February when Keith sent a link to his newest album, The United Colours of Trouble Books, and I've haven't gone a couple of days since without listening to it, I'm kind of hooked. Anyway in september i asked Keith if he wanted a bit of help and now I've set up my own record label to release their stuff over here in the Uk.
I suppose the easiest way to describe their music is Fuzzy Ambient Pop, being huge fans of Stars of the Lid and My Bloody Valentine they've kind of moulded pop sensibilties into these influences. i don't know, I'm awful at describing music, I prefer just listening to the links and making my own mind up what its about.
So here's their myspace http://www.myspace.com/barkandhiss
and a link to their last album United Colours http://www.mediafire.com/?2ibc26inydv
and their album before Distortion Pedal (a bit less ambienty) http://www.mediafire.com/?bnqkivpkhgw
Then Talons', he's Mike from the band Trouble Books, he plays sad acoustic stuff. He actually played at a Colour Ride gig a couple of weeks ago in London. He has got his whole discography up to download for free here http://www.barkandhiss.com/talons/5.html
and his myspace is http://www.myspace.com/choderomeo .
Well I know its not my music but hopefully I can be excused.
