fresh as it gets: Annuals
alright, seriously? i barely even know who these guys are, i've never heard them, and i have no idea where their mp3s came from on my desktop - i mean this - but oh man.
stop everything you're doing. forget headphones, forget work, forget the stove, don't feed your dog.
listen to these songs right now.
::::another golden find from Ace Fu,
i present you with these mp3s:
Annuals - Brother(*1)
Annuals - Dry Clothes (*2)
Annuals - Bleary Eyed(all highly recommended, but this is guaranteed. hands down.)
*1 and 2 meant to be heard together.
i'm telling you right now that if this band doesn't explode to the top as they should, i will physically drag them to the zenith myself. i will spam all of your inboxes with their tracks until you send me mailbombs - but damn it, you will love them.
...now it's very doubtful that i will have to work as hard as i promise, but i'm prepared. would you like a true selling point? they're touring with Art Brut and Tapes 'n Tapes. you will see me at that show, and not just to see Art Brut. it will be for Annuals. the kids are also very fairly comparing them to Animal Collective, Arcade Fire, and Broken Social Scene. i think the emphasis is on AC, there, but hey! listen, and get your own opinion.
quick, run as fast as you can to their official site, Ace Fu label page, their myspace, and a little ditty from PF that agrees with me. go CRAZY.
NOTE: as much as toaster loves free music, he'd like to encourage you to buy the cds of the artists you enjoy. he'd also like to remind you that any music hosted by or linked to from this page is property of its respective owners, so if that's you and you'd like it to not be here, just let us know.
READ ME: if files are not working properly upon opening or saving [ex: unknown file type], make sure that there is a .mp3 at the end of the filename, and all will be well.
also: all files posted will only remain available for two to three weeks. if you find something in an old post that you'd really like to hear, tell us.
be our god damn myspace friend. damn it.
