Reviews, Revisitings...

Local cool-guys Crawford Philleo and Tom Murphy wrote up super nice reviews for "Curse All Summers" on Tome to the Weather Machine and The Westword, respectively.  In the spirit of synergy, I'd like to voice my endorsement for their bands Vitamins and Pythian Whispers, two of the only really great things happening currently in Denver.  The title track for Vitamins' new 7" is totally this summer's main jam.

In other news, I'm determined to finally give Unreal City's 2nd release, "June" by Daniel Bouse, the treatment it actually deserves.  Everybody that's heard it pretty much agrees it's the greatest thing since mother's love.  It's been two years (!) since Dan and I lived together on 13th street, but dropping the ball on his bedroom-made gem is something that's bummed me out ever since.  This is the flier our buddy Neil Samples made for the release show:

It's been too long, but better late than never.  I believe in these songs as much now as I did back then.  I'll see about getting something online soon and will be shooting for hard copies before summer is out.

Celebration time.

Welcome to the Aughties

Like I said, Unreal City #3, "Curse All Summers" is available on infinitely hipper cassette-format for $5 in person or $8 by mail, but now it includes a download so you can jam it at will on your not-yet-completely-obsolete digital devices.  Forgo a hard copy at your discression.  "Immediate download of 10-track album in your choice of 320k mp3, FLAC, or just about any other format you could possibly desire," says bandcamp.  Dig it here.

If you were at the release show and grabbed a copy of the tape, you might be wondering why you didn't get the download code with it.  That's because you didn't pay for it yet, asshole.  Now is your chance.

Actually, that's a joke.  Just email me if you want a download code and tell me which copy you have, I'll send you one gratis.  I love you.

"Curse All Summers"

Just in time for summer, Unreal City #3 "Curse All Summers" was released last Friday, June 10th at the Further Shoppe in downtown Denver.  The show almost didn't happen, but turned out wonderfully.  If you are reading this, you were probably there because that's pretty much the only way you would have gotten a copy of the tape and definitely the only way you could have heard about the blog address for this so-called "label".

If by some weird chance you are reading this but don't have a copy and by some weirder chance you actually want one, send $8 by Paypal to westonleewilson (at) gmail with your address and I'll get one off in the mail to you.  If you're in Denver, just email me and I'll take it straight to your house for five bucks flat.  If you think you might want one but aren't sure, download jam number two and see how you feel about it.

A digital version of the tape might become available someday, somehow, but that possibility is contingent on my finding a place to live and having internet access that isn't leeched off my buddy's neighbors' router.  Such a contingency would also, perhaps, probably provide the means to learn computers and get this "label page" looking like more than an empty crap-void.  Incidentally, if you know computers and have computers and want to help a brother out, get a hold of me.
