eMusic pppurcha$e$ - First Quarter of 2011

We're loving our 133 new powerpop, indiepop, shoegaze, psych, garage, and perhaps unclassifiable songbabies purchased at eMusic these first three months of 2011. If you seem to like some of the same stuff we do, click here to see what we bought and take it from there. Even if you don't subscribe to eMusic, you might get ideas for artists, albums, and songs to check out elsewhere. Feedback welcome. Happy hunting.

Royal Chant - Ghosts


Just came across this song at A Sweet Unrest, really like it, and thought you might, too. The band's from the mid-north coast of New South Wales (Facebook says Port Macquarie/Wauchope, to be precise). A Sweet Unrest has a very nice video as well.
