Human Tetris and Lil Swan

I have been waiting for some new music by Human Tetris for a couple of years, ever since I discovered them on bandcamp.  They are one of a about a dozen groups that I just do not understand why they are not better known.  Rivaling the sound of Editors and Interpol, I connect with them more as a evolution of one of my favorite short-lived bands, Glorious Din.  I recently found on their facebook page that they broke up, but the good news is that the "mastermind" behind the band had started a new group called Lil Swan, and the better news is that Lil Swan sounds wonderfully like Human Tetris.  I suggest getting to know both bands.  I can't really say more about their music other than - every song is my favorite until the next one starts.

Thighpaulsandra - The Golden Communion

A stunning package, this 3 disc vinyl is just incredible.  I was kind of hoping for a booklet similar to the Double Vulgar releases (II in particular) but I think this gatefold is beautiful and quite complete (though lyrics are always appreciated).  I was extremely happy to receive an email to download the album so that I could listen to it while awaiting my hard copy and I was blown away before the end of the first song.
