New single from interestingly named Savage Young Taterbug reviewed by Raven Sings the Blues > Taterbug is Charles Free, “singin son of the earth,” as well as a “brotherless child.” He sings and manipulates tapes that he’s recorded, and some he’s found, “sometimes scotchtape vocal dubs for that boy choir vibe.” (out on Lighten Up Sounds)
Speaking of interesting…highly peculiar even > Brian is a human-sized teddy bear with a big heart. He likes watching TV, keeping warm, and hibernating. He’s very good at listening but doesn’t say much. Sometimes, he’ll say the most profound things but people miss them because he has a very quiet bear voice. – new single by Brian is out on Time for Art Records (h/t PJ Sykes)
Last but not least…fundraiser by Disco Sam, so he could leave NJ forever and possibly move to Boston…donate to help him build the studio/stay afloat.
