Alright, I'm leaving to France in a month but before I wanted to deliver to the world two excellent new releases, that have nothing to do with each other, musically speaking, only the fact that Columbus-based people are involved. May I dare to say Friends ? (The fact that the covers of these two releases represent women is purely accidental).
ANNA RANGER - UP THROUGH THE YEARS
Anna Ranger is the dance/pop project of Nathan Snell, also famous for his Country band, smartly named Nathan Snell and the Country Sound. He also played keyboard in Twink Bully, one of the best free rock outfit from Columbus. The songs on this tape were written during the last four years I believe (even earlier) when Anna Ranger was only Nathan, later joined by Philip Park (You're So Bossy) on bass and Sam Brown (V-3, New Bomb Turks, You're So Bossy) on drums. The tracks on this tape were crafted by Nathan alone, in his bedroom I believe. Now that Anna Ranger is a trio the sound has evolved, but the root is the same : catchy pop gems. Sadness. Melancholia. Desire. The tape features the particularly brain-sticking (?) tune "Baby Come Back, I Want to Screw". Who doesn't ? C34
DROSOFILE - FRANCE GAL
Will Foster and his band Guinea Worms are, I heard, one of the pillar of the Columbus "rock" scene. Will and I teamed up. The music on this tape is primal, repetitive, somehow loose (due to incapacity and booze). There are a lot of tracks some of them are only a few seconds long. One of the track on the B-Side is 25 min long. It is some really intense music. Totally anti-France as the cover suggests. Everybody should know that France is overrated. We used all the tracks from a Tascam 8-track, mixed down to a tape. Raw shit. C60 Bro.
AND I HAVE 25 MORE COPIES OF THE 2050s/CHEATER SLICKS TAPE !
