Local News - Channel 8

I need new music. I've been in a musical rut for months. Art kind of  has a monopoly on the stereo. He'll let me listen to anything if I ask, but I can't really think of anything. I need to dig. I need to discover. Yesterday I was cleaning up my hard drive and I found an album I downloaded two years ago on tumblr still zipped. I opened it and played it while I washed dishes. It was so rad I played it another five times.

Local News - Channel 8

It appears to be sampled from old news shows. It's kind of mysterious like you're tuning in to frequencies from another dimension. When I discovered the album it was free download on their tumblr (which I'm still trying to locate). I found the link on bandcamp so you can listen to it streaming or "name your price" for a download. Totally worth it. I'm definitely going to buy their other album, Ghost Broadcast. Might even spring for the hard copy. I'm kind of glad I waited to listen to it. It found me at the perfect moment.

This is a great example of the kind of music I want right now. Kind of a proto-seapunk mall vibes. Aesthetics out the butt. Dream jams. The Windows 95 Soundtrack. I eagerly await your recommendations.
