Outer Space Tonight: more from Swayback

This week we have more Americana from Swayback.

Style: cow punk, surf punk, garage, Americana
Album: Outer Space Tonight -unreleased demo E.P.
Recorded live to Minidisc in 2002.
Engineered by David Chavez.
Lucky- Bass,
Jon Reed -Guitar & Vocals;
me-drum kit.

Track list:

1)And then Aliens Invaded From Space
2)Ready to Fall Again
3)Step Through the Door
4)Clean My Bones
5)Last Ride

These are pretty high fidelity, so I went ahead and uploaded them to the internet archive in lossless Flac format (MP3 and Ogg Vorbis too, don't worry). If you are not familiar with Flac, you can find out more info here including free software that allows you to use the format.

For any recordings in previous posts that are of high enough quality, I will be posting Flac versions on the internet archive. If you have a request, let me know.

Le Tout Puissant Orchestre Super Naam De Joe Brown - Rough Cuts

Joe Brown lives down the street from me. He has a basement full of musical toys. Sometimes he invites me over to play. He gave me permission to post these two rough mixes from his project Super Naam (follow the link for more songs). When it is done you will want it. I'll be sure to keep you posted on Joe's activities as they progress.

Style: Groovy pop rocks (don't mix with Pepsi)
me-drum kit
Joe Brown - everything else
Rough mixes of tracks from the upcoming Super Naam release

1) In the Country
2) Play Nice
Get it at the Internet Archive.

Up next, more Swayback. Stay tuned for more ambient-experimental tracks from the minidisc archives, which seem to be deeper than I was expecting. Coming to Pen & Mallet - I'll be giving you Flac as appropriate.
