Swinebolt 45

Swinebolt 45
This tape consists of previously released material, condensed for Al's SOP label. A pretty fair electronic excursion, but rather unmemorable.  There's some nice subtlety here and there, and a little grappling with peaks. Good for background-- and that's probably the whole point.  The cassette album is still available from Sound of Pig via the link below.

The Faint of Heart - Kiss & Make-up

The Faint of Heart - Kiss & Make-up
As Clevescene wrote in 2004, The Faint of Heart leading man, Cleft S, doesn't sing as much as he talks in key. Kiss & Make-up is full of doo-wop hooks and jilted humor. Acoustic guitar and 3-part grrl harmonies. And a lot of tasty stuff for the ears, glockenspiel, organ, etc. Reportedly there was a followup recorded shortly after this one called Let's Do It! Where can I find it? Buy on Amazon:
