From England -- and please don't hold that against him -- please enjoy Ballard and his stunningly low-fi "Pretty Colours."
This crossed my desk (my e-mail, actually) last week and it kinda got lost in the New Years shuffle until I read this self-description...
...which obviously piqued my interest. Especially after it turned out the music actually lived up to the billing.
I'm a one-man lo-fi bedroom outfit and am inspired by the British Mod sound of the Sixties - The Who, The Kinks, The Move (probably my favourites).
If you'd like to hear more -- and you definitely should -- head over to his official website here.
Have I mentioned that Jeebus, this is good?
