This is Shea here, the guitar media protege. If you ever hear some incomprehensible mumbling in the background during a show, it's probably me. heh.
So anyway, I've been asked to occasionally post stuff on the blog. I've been meaning to for ages, but wanted to wait until I had something worthwhile, and after weeks of preparation, i finally do.
You might've read on the comments section a couple of weeks ago that richard and i were making mixtapes for summer. That's right, old-skool mixtapes with the tracklisting written in blue biro on the back, and possibly a twee illustration. (if you're getting a professional one that is)
I started on one ages ago, and i've been continuously changing it since. but last night, when i probably should've been studying history or something, i started from scratch and i think i've finally made one that works. it's mostly summery indiepop with some twee and fuzzy rock thrown in for variety. I've been listening to it all this morning and it certainly goes with the clear skies and warm weather.
So anyway, here it is:
