Young Galaxy

This site’s file-hosting problems have not been solved, but I have a band-aid over the wound for the moment. My ISP only gives 800GB of bandwidth a month, and I’m afraid you all will suck it away in minutes, so I’m still searching for something as gullible useful as EZarchive. If you download the song below, let me know how it went! Too slow? Didn’t work? Anything.

So I have high hopes for Young Galaxy’s new album, set for release in spring 2007. This is about as advance as I ever get; Young Galaxy just signed with Arts & Crafts, and they don’t have even a prior album (but they’re Canadian! Which means they’re fabu). Coming from someone who won’t buy a CD unless she loves at least three songs on it, this doesn’t mean a whole lot, but I can’t stop listening to “Swing Your Heartache.” I’m not sure exactly what swinging one’s heartache would entail, but I interpret as dancing in the face of unhappiness. I like the sheer brashness of it: “we believe in time that you will see / the frontier is misery.”

    hm. swing the heartache is a bauhaus song, wonder if it’s a cover. or a shout out.

    anyway. deep thoughts by me. maybe not so deep.

    It must be a shoutout or something! Now that you mention it, I see that there is a whole album by Bauhaus called “Swing the Heartache.” If only I’d kept up on my German industrial punk thingamajig! It’s too coincidental to be true … I hope they don’t get sued. Can a German sue a Canadian?

    Oh good! That looks like a good site; thanks for the comment. It’s hard to figure out who’s reliable and who’s going to screw ya in the end (without some advice).

    I know! Arts & Crafts can really do no wrong. All hail Canadian rock!
