Um, hi. Well. It's been ... a while since I surfaced, hasn't it? I have no real excuse but that's I'm lazy and have the attention span of a gnat. Which doesn't really make anything clear, but there you go.

Ah! But I do have a semi-real reason for posting; first off: MUSIC )

The other thing I wanted to do was post my CD cover for one of my august trade mixes (for [livejournal.com profile] indiemixtrade). This time instead of a sort of pop-art/graphic art/goth punk-ish feel, I was totally basing my design off of old, french art nouveau posters. I liked the way it turned out ... Except for the goddamned green. In retrospect I really should have used red for the background, but que sera sera right? Right. So I am going to stop obsessing.

Inner!Esme: Riiiiight. Sure you are.

Esme: Shut up. I will. Am, am!

Inner!Esme: Of course you are.

Esme: Sarcasm much. Leave me alone.

Inner!Esme: Want a cookie?

Esme: ... Fine. -_-;

So, I was stupid and forgot that not everyone can play wma files. So I just added some links to mp3 for a few of the songs that weren't.

I'm bored. And I have the computer to myself. So I went on a yousendit spree and I've uploaded a whole whack of songs for those who wants 'em.

So without further ado; music, for the young and disenfranchised. )

Because I am a generous person, I have downloads of some of the music on my current playlist. Eh, well that and I'm bored. So here:

1. Hey Now Now by The Cloud Room. These guys are a something between the Velvet Underground and the Shins, and it is my current Happy Song.

2. Love Will Tear Us Apart by Joy Division. Before Interpol (though I perish to remember such a time), there was Joy Division. They were at the fore-front of the introspective guitar-driven so-called "gloom-rock" movement, and with songs like Love Will Tear Us Apart, it's very easy to see why. Perfect music for a rainy evening, and a great counterpoint to the much happier Hey Now Now.

3. This Boy is Exhausted by The Wrens. I believe I've mentioned this before, but they are my New Favorite Band. The song is off of their 2003 album, The Meadowlands which was a far cry from the nearly manic cheerfulness of Secaucus, their prior album. The Meadowlands is bleak, poignant and filled with rich melodies like Boy.

4. Surprise, Honeycomb by The Wrens. From the 1996 Secaucus. If Meadowlands was bleak, then Secaucus was brash. This one less so than many on the album, but still very very full of youthful pride and enthusiasm.

5. Driving Sideways by Amiee Mann. Off of Bachelor No. 2, the song that makes me want to write poetry and smoke a cigarette in a very Joni Mitchell-ish way.
