Oh yeah, there's also a review at HANX, a Dutch review site. Any translators out there?
There's a very nice little review about me at Label Worthy.

Each day draws us nearer to the long-awaited LOP t-shirts. For real.

Best artist I've heard in a while: Field Notes. There's no mp3s on his site yet, but there's two here.

What's new you ask? Not much. I've been splitting my already-thin time between new songs and a soundtrack for a short film. The original score used music from Last of the Mohicans - I'm having a heck of a time putting together songs that can compete with with that soundtrack. I think I'm going to have to steal my roommate's keyboard to give it a big enough sound, but it's already taking me forever. Hopefully it will be good when it's finished; if so I'll probably end up releasing it in some way.

Want a t-shirt? I'm finally ready to sell them... only my camera ran out of batteries again. Once I get a fresh charge I'll get everything posted. I promise.

Anniversary received an editor's pick over at Smother magazine.

Also I worked on a new song today. Here's the demo: No Name

I don't usually post things like this, but intrepid travel writer Rick Steves has a thoughtful and sincere essay about the perceived terrorist threat posted on his website. It echoes many of my own feelings on the subject.
There's a nice review by Jeff up at Delusions of Adequacy. I've always thought he's had the best independent music review site on the internet, and that's all the more true now that Splendid is defunct.

I've got a friend in town for a few days, but I'll post a couple new demos sometime next week.

I'm going to renege on my promise to post all my songs on my site. My original thought was: the more songs available, the more likely that someone will hear a song they like and pass the word on. I was hoping to generate enough traffic to my site that I could eventually get signed to a label.

That's not my goal anymore. I don't want to be on a label, aside from my own (or a friend's), and thankfully the internet makes the traditional music model unnecessary. So, within a few days I will be removing a bunch of mp3s from the site. They'll still be plenty left up, more so than your average band's site, but download everything now if you haven't already done so.

I updated the site big time the other day - let me know if it looks messed up on your computer.
