Todays posts are 2 tracks by artists that I want more of. I can't find more information, because the Internet hates me. And so, my dear readers/listeners, I appeal to you, and your (hopefully greater than my) google-fu. Because Mine is ever so lacking this evening.
Jill Brazil - The Songs of Jill Brazil, Track 3 I wish I knew the name of this song, but I don't. It came into my hands via a rather convoluted route, and I don't have a tracklist for the album. That said, it's a fantastic album, and a great song, inhabiting a space somewhere in between James Chance, John Zorn, Mr. Bungle, and Tortoise. What I know about Jill Brazil from google, and the source of my copy of this album can be summed up as follows: They are from Bellingham, Wa. They are now defunct. This is one of 2 albums they recorded. Frankly, I want more. More importantly, I want a tracklist for this album. If anyone can help me out, please comment or e-mail me. It's fantastic stuff.
Witches - There She Is You might recognize this track from this classic Flashtoon from Korea - according to an FAQ on the authors website, the song from the movie is entitled "There She Is", and is by a Korean ska band known as the Witches. Frankly, I think it's fantastic. The problem is, it seems the entire english speaking interweb has never heard of them, outside of the context of this one flash animation. So, I'm posting this song, at least in part, as a plea to the world, for more information. Because this is a fantastic, propulsive piece of pop ska that, were it in english, likely would have charted 10 years ago. I want more. Badly.
