Bitstreams and Waveforms

A while back I stumbled across an all-girl synth band called Au Revoir Simone. Yes, the cliches explode in your mind when you read the phrase "all-girl synth band" — I know I'm still wiping off little bits of cliche mush off the inside of my skull. Yet they have something, a dorky innocence perhaps, that appeals to me. The Pony Song is my favorite.

Scott Andrew and the Walkingbirds is described as "apparently some kind of lo-fi, DIY urban acoustic pop and weirdo country thing". I'm still checking out their stuff but it sounds pretty good so far. Plus it's, you know, free...

Mario Systems covers tunes from videogames. Surprisingly (or not) it is pretty interesting. My Faves are The Guardian Legend: "Corridor 1" and Metroid: "Kraid's Hideout"

Bach's Tocata and Fuge in D Minor for the organ was the first CD I ever bought. This isn't the same version, but it is free.

Radiohead has released a silly little ditty. Enjoy.
