Blog de Musique

This is a music blog. Different kinds of music. And commentary on said music. Most of the files uploaded will be AAC files (because I'm an Apple guy) so you best have iTunes to play them. Sorry if you don't. (If any links are dead, leave a comment and I'll reupload.)

I buy way too much music for my own good and then waste my time talking about what music I've bought on my blog.

Degrassi is a band from Scotland. I found them via another Scottish band, Idlewild. Idlewild had split with their bass player, Bob Fairfoull, who then went on to play guitar with Degrassi. Prior to his joining, Degrassi had released an e.p. entitled Terminal Ocean. I bought said e.p. just out of curiosity, to see what they sounded like. I was expecting them to sound similar to early Idlewild since the reason Fairfoull left was because he didn't like the direction Idlewild was taking. Much to my surprise, they didn't sound anything like Idlewild. There were more of a straight forward indie guitar band (whatever the means). A few of their songs had a bit of shoegazer characteristics as well.

I've included 3 songs from the Terminal Ocean e.p.: No Tracks in the Snow, Terminal Ocean, and Emerald City, and 1 song from the follow-up e.p., The Form: Cabin Fever (<---that's the one I think is the most shoegazery).
