Wild Smiles or Wild Frowns?

The longer we stare at that widget, the shakier we get. (I.e., where be the smiles?)

No sooner do we pop the new song by Southampton trio Wild Smiles into Songdrop than we find it is available for free and legal download. (Well, there was a 24-hour gap, but whatever.) We're kind of facing a dilemma, though. Wild Smiles want to give you the song in exchange for a Facebook like. If you've got a Facebook account, that's very easy to do. Just click here.

We have one, even though it's really kind of a fake one we set up under a pseudonym in order to get a Spotify account. (Shhhhh.) So we used it to "like" (even though we actually "love") WS and happily downloaded the song. As a result, we now have a link you nonFacebookers can use to get the song. Do you think that might turn WS into WF? We really hope not. (But just in case: Shhhhh.)

BTW, our earlier post on WS still has a very nice f&l, in case you're interested. Unfortunately, the widget to get "Tangled Hair" no longer works. In fact, it's been transmogrified into some other widget we don't even recognize.

Sorry for all the wordage in this post. It won't happen again.

Oh, and while we're at it, here's the video of a WS song we love and previously put in Songdrop. (Rollo & Grady still have it, too.)

And here's the video of "Tangled Hair." (Loved.) Buy here and here.

eMusic pppurcha$e$ - First Quarter of 2014

There is perhaps only one other human in this whole wide universe who actually cares about this little "feature" of ours, but, hey, that's 100% more than enough. (Maybe there are some in other universes, but that's beyond our ken, as currently configured.) Click here to see the list of our powerpop, indiepop, shoegaze, psych, garagepop, etc., buys at eMusic during the first quarter of this year. We've been hypergrooving to that song by Minor Alps called "Mixed Feelings."  It's over/up there in the Songdrop widget, in case you'd like to check it out.

The Delphines: Feral

Would it make you angry, feral even, to learn we've been enjoying this Milwaukee band for a year or two now and just hadn't told you about them? Well, it should. The following is from their upcoming Milwaukee Record full-length, Hush.

There's much excellent free and legal action at their Bandcamp page.
