Well, coupled with my recent obsessions, being Battlestar Gallactica and Wipeout HD platinum trophies, as well as endless tweaking to three new Kingdom tracks, as the summer draws too a close by becoming sunny again I would like to point attentions towards one Anamanaguchi , a fairly awesome band riding a crest of "of hey thats actually awesome". Now first lets get it out of the way, they did the (awesome) soundtrack to the (awesome) Scott Pilgrim game. However being (awesome) and (switched on) you should rather be looking for the two (awesome) EP's Dawn Metropolis and Power Supply (both on amazon mp3 and itoones) or if you are cheap, they are giving away 3 (awesome) singles on their website. Joyous music abound! LOL etc. But yes, do indeed look them up. Did i mention they use a NES for all the synthy awesomes? no? they use a NES, thats like cool and stuff innit? Also the Scott Pilgrm film is pretty good.
So me and the other Brunel's are balls deep in making three awesome new songs to prove that we are 1) not incapable of writing short songs 2) don't suck as loudly as before 3) can make quieter suckitude louder (by perception) through better productionisms. In exposing these tracks to the beady scrutiny that can focus upon them when working at such lengths we keep cutting bits out of the songs. a few weeks back we had a lovely three track EP clocking in at exactly 10 minutes, not too shabby eh? However my most recent calculation states that the length and girth is now 8.7 minutes, leading my shoddy maths to suggest that by christmas this EP will actually have a negative running time, presumably adding extra time to the day whenever you try to play it, or something.
And so ends the summer update of this summer. Feels a bit lame to say the end result is 8.69 minutes of music. Better get it done before a paradox occurs.
