A Pheromoans Sampler

This is the best young/contemporary band out there.  Ramshackle post-punk with a sense of humor greatness.
So here's a collection of songs from various albums and EPs.  The process of making a zip file created the order of the tracks, but it doesn't matter what order their songs are in...they're all really fucking good on their own.  Listen repeatedly for your own good, and most importantly buy their records.  Money spent in support of a band this great and the wonderful folks who run the labels that put these records out is money you should be spending.  How the fuck do you think bands are able to make more records?
These guys have put out a lot of stuff in a handful of years and I sure hope they'll continue...

A Film by Zack Distel

**better to watch it at:

Basically this is an experimental visualization of an 18 minute piece of experimental music, really cool stuff, reminded me a bit of Bill Morrison's "Decasia."
I recommend watching it on the biggest screen possible, in the dark, loud-ish, etc.  It sounds cheesy, I'm sure, but no matter what you think of them, cliches became cliches because they're the truth.  This is very atmospheric music and film, best to engulf yourself.
Anyway, with this gem, I may try to begin posting more film work, too.  If you have any suggestions, put a link in the comments.
