Bugs, Cutters, & Comets
How's that for a postitle that will lure few if any to our little lair?
Be that as it may, ye about-to-be-happy few, our phoney little music player continues to do yeoman's duty in the music minding department. (We are essentially shufflefolk.) After enjoying a song by Ice Cutters we'd bought a couple of years back, we decided to track it down (using, btw, a Logitech Cordless Optical Trackman (USB/PS/2)) and see if it was downloadable for free. It wasn't, but what we eventually found did make us shiver.
As we may once have known - and you cognoscenti no doubt still do - IC is actually the side project of a member of much-loved-by-us Welsh powerpoppers, Junebug. We'd bought a bunch of their product several years ago at eMusic without realizing the fraternal nature of the bands. (Do be careful if you go to eMusic, though, because some of the artists yclept "Junebug" are neither Welsh nor powerpoppers.) We also found that another brotherly side project is The Red Comets. All that said, and clickable links provided, let's to the music.
Oh, but wait. You can find quite a few more free downloadables by Junebug at their Soundcloud page and more by The Red Comets at Bandcamp. That Soundcloud page also delineates how you can buy more.
And now the ears have it.
