I received an email from Simon at Spoilt Victorian Child today. It was good to hear from him a) because although I've never met him, he comes across as a nice bloke, b) His now retired blog Spoilt Victorian Child was one of the reasons I started this venture over eighteen months ago and c) Because he runs a record label, also called Spoilt Victorian Child which amongst other things has released the debut EP by 17 Seconds favourites Ringo Deathstarr.
Now Simon is preparing to release the eighth album by Mike Seed. It's called Aether Blues, and these two promo tracks take folk music to a very dark, gloriously lo-fi and fantastic place indeed:
Mike Seed -'A Flock Of Wrong.' mp3
Mike Seed -'Knives, Forks, Spoons.' mp3
If you like what you here please leave feedback, and go here to buy his albums very reasonably indeed, and download other mp3s including the fabulous 'Grantchester Meadows' (no, not the Pink Floyd track from Ummagumma, though it goes fabulously weird at the end in a Barrett-esque way).
As soon as I have heard the album, I will post the review up here, (and the Rosie Taylor LP which has arrived, a full month ahead of release, at 17 Seconds' towers...)
