Georgia: web release

My Mean Magpie have another digital release, this time from Georgia.

"Georgia was the work of Patti Kim (Meowch / Tel Quel) and Five Seventeen (Toys for Elliot / 5MP) who carefully crafted songs with their 4-tracks in separate houses rather than walk the half-block to each others houses. This CD compiles the original Nothing New release issued in 2000 and adds 4 tracks (2 previously unreleased).

From the lesser-known Sesame Street cover, "I Don't Want to Live on the Moon" (originally performed by Ernie) to the ethereal "Highway Soul (Miracle Mix)" the album brings in outside talents of Wendal's Jef McLarnen and Oval-Teen's Brad Davis to reach levels far beyond their scrappy debut cassette released three years prior."

It's a nice release, a definite lo-fi sound with some surprises. I'm a big fan of My Mean Magpie and all that he (Five) does, most of his releases are done under Creative Commons guidelines and he continually is a big supporter of music in general. Plus, he likes birds.

Check it out:

Georgia - I Don't Want To Live On The Moon (originally sung by Ernie on Sesame Street)
Georgia - The This Man Boyfriends Club

And the whole release can be found over at the Internet Archive:

Georgia - Nothing New

And here's a link to My Mean Magpie's other releases. And the beauty of these releases is that they are available in almost any format you could want. With album art, to boot. Have at it.
