Somewhere around the traps, you may have had the pleasure of hearing the explosive sounds of oddball sample pastiche as brought to life by the loving hands of a dude named Faux Pas. Actually, his real name is Tim Shiel. But I digress…
Last night, Tim stayed up too late and decided he’d send an e-mail to his mailing list. That had interesting consequences, as can be witnessed in this fragment:
RECIPE FOR “CHANGES EP” COCKTAIL: take two parts of hot new ‘faux pas’ action, ie 2 new faux pas tracks. take three remixes deserving of declaratory greatness (for example, i declare these remixes to be great). take one part of music completely played in reverse. combine parts in brain, fry up in the computer and serve on shiny disc, or on floppy disc. or on flying disc, like in the california games.
And that’s pretty much how crazy the whole e-mail was.
After reading Tim’s cascade of alphabet soup, I suddenly had a revelatory thought which ran along the lines of: “holy cow! Tim said ‘EP’ and ‘new faux pas tracks’ and ‘remixes’ and… that means good!”
And behold, it is good news. Tim’s new Changes EP (note: no “Ch-Ch”) has just been released, and it bundles three remixes (two of which have received jubilant attention from our own FBI Radio and Melbourne’s RRR) and two brand new tracks. Three of the tracks are now available to stream on the Faux Pas Myspace so you really have no excuse to remain ignorant save for your feeble laziness which doesn’t even permit you to go check out quality music from a quality independent muso.
So don’t delay! Head over to Tim’s new website and explore the goodness.
Now to go find my credit card…
