All Come Down...


Performing in The Beta Band, and as King Biscuit Time; Steve Mason has managed to get two tracks into the RR Canon ("Dry The Rain", and "I Walk The Earth", respectively).

After quitting the music biz, battling severe depression, and splitting up with himself over the last few years, he's now back - releasing under his own name - and has the lead-off track, All Come Down from his new record (not out til March 2010) as a free download to get you all in the mood.

It's an "exclusive" on The Quietus, so you have to click here to get it.

Mnemonic, Japanther, SKP, Saneshane - this is the proper hi-fi version, as opposed to the youtube radiorip that I put up before.

i find his music "elevative" - is that a word??!!

steenbeck said...

Beautiful! (The song, not the picture - aren't they at all worried about pine needles? And sap?)

SatanKidneyPie said...

Got it! Marvellous stuff. Cheers for posting this, Blimps.

Is it safe to come out yet?

This won't open for me: freezes every time as soon as I try to download. Will someone email it to me, please?

listening to an album on spotify is a bit like watching a film on itv. ... do I want to get used to this?

i really should have got off the couch, gone upstairs, and just found the bloody Streets CD.....

if, like me, you turned on bbc 6music literally seconds too late to hear Frightened Rabbit do 3 new songs on Marc Riley, there's always this:

Re Spotify, I agree with that. Too many ads on spotify means it's only a sampling or research tool.

DarceysDad said...

Mmmm, that's lovely. Really fits well with my listening mood tonight (One eskimO, Band Of Heathens, and the wonderful 16 minute warm-bath-of-a-tune that is Cornershop's The Turned On Truth (The Truth Is Turned On). Cheers, Blimpy.

I concur with Steenbeck - this is beautiful and if "elevative" doen't exist then maybe it ought to!
One of my favourite all-time relaxa-horizontalise choons is "squares" and the man Mason is clearly a talented man with his finger on summat special. Well posted Blimpster. Ta.

Mnemonic said...

Thanks Blimpy. I'm so looking forward to the whole album.

DsD
I was playing Cornershops 'The Roll-Off Characteristics (of History in the Making)' yesterday and wondered if they regretted 'Brimful...'
did it get added to the albatross songs?

DarceysDad said...

@ Shane - I don't think Brimful did go onto the albatross list, and I'm not sure it should. If the 'Shop felt that way about it, they surely wouldn't have given so much album time to its reinvention on Judy Sucks A Lemon...

saneshane said...

true,
i wondered if it was a record buyers albatross song.. rather than the bands then.

but they have had a few mentions round these parts lately,so critically, maybe not even that.

I may have to search out Judy.. and give it another listen

(once I have narrowed down my 3 tracks for shoeys list.. so he stops nagging (joke shoey ;)

Japanther said...

cheers Blimpy....it really is soooo good! Can't wait for the album too

Shoey said...

Also looking forward to this one. Thanks for the heads-up, Blimpy.
