Teddy doesn’t seem to want to keep posting, Simon and Twee haven’t posted in awhile, and for some strange reason, mediafire hasn’t worked for me for at least 3 weeks (I keep getting upload errors).

I’m thinking this is the end of HtBSR.  Sad to see it come to an end, but all good things must eventually stop.  Glad that we’ve had some followers, and I’m happy to know you enjoyed the music we shared.  If you want to contact us, you can click the “Contributors” link in the sidebar and contact us via last.fm.  If you ever want me to recommend you an album, I gladly will.

Thanks for supporting us through our short run.  I won’t say goodbye, though.  It sounds too sad.  Instead, I’ll say Bon Voyage.

Bon Voyage.

Pure angsty 80’s pop.  That’s what this album is.  And I wouldn’t have it any other way.  It’s one of my favorites, in fact.  Give it a try.  And I’m probably gonna be seeing them in Detroit this August.  Can’t wait for that.  Sorry for taking so long with this post.  Something was up with WordPress and I couldn’t upload any pictures for some reason.

One of my favorite albums to listen to for the past few days.  Very catchy and quirky.  Sparks is one of the defining pop bands of the 70’s, and I feel rather stupid for just now discovering them.  Don’t make my mistake.  Download this and listen today.  You won’t be disappointed.

Beck’s regular style of music and lyricism was replaced for a more simpler one with this album.  The lyrics are sadder, the music is more melancholy, and that’s what I like about it.  Sea Change is definitely my favorite Beck album (of the ones I’ve listened to so far) and it’s a nice album to have in your collection, and a great listen.  Also, I apologize for not posting this past week or so.  Blame computer trouble and my recent addiction to AMC’s “Breaking Bad”.

Really cool (but rather angsty) album I’ve been listening to quite a bit lately.  I’ve still got to check out their other albums and plan on getting on that soon.  For now, enjoy this one and I apologize for the lack of posts and rather short summaries lately.  I’ve been kind of pressed for time for the past while.

One of the better folk albums to come out so far this year, “This Ending Promise” is one of the albums from the same guy who brought you “The Loneliest Cowgirls”, “Henry Bemis is a Superhero”, and “Screaming and Dreaming”.  The lyrics are sincere, the music is catchy, and the singer is likable.  Definitely worth a try if you’re into folk.

Pretty awesome band from France I discovered awhile back, but am just now getting around to posting.  Spin-off project of the lead singer of the band “Stereolab”.
