WMD Found!

4 Comments

Based on a suggestion from the Minster of M&T, I am introducing the Weekly Music Download or WMD post.  Every Thursday I will post about a new or overlooked artist and make one of their tracks available for download.  Ideally this will generate some discussion and comments – and I encourage anyone so inclined to post songs of their own (contact me or the M of M&T for nerdy posting instructions).  So without further ado, here’s this week’s post:

Img_3025 Dead Combo

Album: Self Titled (2005)

Download Track: Hey Dusty

The honorable Minister of IA will be pleased to learn that this is a very international band.  Hailing from Lisbon, Portugal, Dead Combo layers haunting lyrics on top of crunchy trebel-laden guitar and synth lines anchored by understated electronic precussion.  To get a idea of the overall effect, imagine watching "The Four Fingers Club" turned up way too loud with some "Jesus and Mary Chain" playing in the background… or just download the track.

    I paid good money for that film and I want it back. And I want the others back too. This isn’t a joke.
