2008-01-30two ep's today being tuesday, i stopped by hmv to check out the new releases of the week. nothing of interest. instead, i got two older ep's. short and sweet. and somewhat noisy.
the blood brothers - love rhymes with hideous car wreck [ep]
the title track is one of my favourites from their "crimes" album. this ep also contains their remix of gang of four's "anthrax". upon my first listen, i found out that this also contains "metronomes", a song that i had heard before and liked, without knowing what song it was. i am still upset at myself for missing all those times they played in montreal; the band is broken up now, and i have never seen them live.
the horrors - the horrors [ep]
i first heard about them when their song "sheena is a parasite" was played in a podcast. then, i saw the video and it scared me a little. still, i like the song.
i find myself less hesitant to buy ep's now. i've found that for certain bands, the ep's contain better songs than their studio albums. especially those hyped-up bands who release an amazing ep, only to follow with a disappointing debut album.
