Bright Eyes' Noise Floor
If EPs hold about half the weight of an LP, rarities and b-sides albums holds probably a quarter of the weight of a newly recorded LP. Another musician on the Fall rarities boat is Bright Eyes with Noise Floor, a collection of rare tracks spanning 1998-2005 to be release on Saddle Creek on October 24th. I highly recommend it for Bright Eyes fans, their are some gems in there.
From the Saddle Creek website:
On October 24th, Saddle Creek will release Noise Floor, a collection of Bright Eyes singles, one-offs, unreleased tracks, collaborations and covers recorded between 1998 and 2005. Variously recorded to cassette four-track, minidisc, reel-to-reel tape machine, ADAT and computer, these songs trace Bright Eyes' evolution from basement project to band of international repute. Many of these gems previously lost to out-of-print obscurity are hereby resurrected.
One of his finest rarities that will appear on this release is the two tracks from the Sub Pop Singles Club March 2001 release.
Bright Eyes - I Will Be Grateful for This Day
Bright Eyes - When the Curious Girl Realizes She Is Under Glass Again
Look for an EP of new material to be released this winter.
Anyone catch the NFL games on Sunday? My team, the Dallas Cowboys offense needs to step their game up. Damn those turnovers.
