This morning, riding the N-Judah on the way to work, I was listening to an IndieInterviews session with John Vanderslice that has been sitting on my iPod for way too long. (Next up: his interview with Merlin Mann). I expected he would be pretty interesting, and he was. And it also made me wonder why Pixel Revolt didn't cause more of a sensation.
his earlier albums are filled with great songs, but none seem as album-oriented as Pixel Revolt, which is filled with gorgeous songs from start to finish. And it's not just the melodies; the lyrics are heartbreaking, introspective, political. All albums should be this good.
In any case, I thought I might upload a few of his tracks from various albums, plus an Alias remix of "Exodus Damage" (AKA: Dance Dance Revolution).
