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.

Starchildren - Delusions of Candor

Starchilden were a side project band that Billy Corgan put together when the original Smashing Pumpkins were still around. He started the band in 1990. They played a small handful of gigs between 1990 and 1994. The band also included (at times) Jimmy Chamberlain and James Iha from the Pumpkins. They only had 2 official releases. Their cover of Isolation on the Joy Division tribute album, A Means to an End and a on original song on a split single with the band, Catherine (who also had members in Starchildren). Their song on the split, Delusions of Candor serves as the only original song they've ever released.

The song is more inline with the Pumpkins' experiment side. Lots of phaser effects on the guitar. One could even say that the song is very shoegazer. Anyway, here it is.

I'm really looking forward to checking this out. Though I should mention, regarding your headline about iTunes: you hardly need iTunes for AAC files anymore. I'm actually running most of my music on Zune, which handles them fine, but I think most other music playing software does nowadays too. Anyway, that aside, your blog is awesome, and I'm really amazed with how much stuff you have here...
