Three Cheers For Us!

Casey Dorrell

We've been gone for a while, but like other mythic persons of lesser status we've risen from the dead to be with you once again (kinda like Neil Diamond, but with less suck). Strangely, this might not be welcome news. It seems that more of you liked the site when we weren't there - in fact, our regular visitors doubled since we left. I'm going to just assume here that this is the dead painter's syndrome. You never liked us much until we were gone, then you realized our brilliance. Right? I thought so.

Mocking Music makes the International news

What happened while we were gone? Not much. I had a shitty year, Geoff had a Geoffly year, and Sufjan Stevens dethroned Conor Oberst (of Bright Eyes) as the reigning king of all things indie. And a lot of great albums that didn't reference Illinoise were released too. To recap, 2005: Good for music, good for Sufjan, bad for Casey. In light and despite this, Geoff has made our site both tacky and seasonal which, given the season, is really the same thing anyhow.

Regular posts will start up again this week and hopefully we'll get some cool new features going too. We're looking for some fresh blood so if you want to contribute, let us know (more on that to come), there's also the possibility of a podcast so if anyone knows anything about that stuff, also let us know. Look out for the odd interview, free albums most fridays, and just our general excellence to which you should all aspire.

Cheers (three, in fact).

Sufjan Stevens - Casimir Pulaski Day
Sufjan Stevens - All Good NaySayers
Sufjan Stevens - Year of the Dog
Bright Eyes - Haligh, Haligh, A Lie, Haligh
Bright Eyes - Gold Mine Gutted
Bright Eyes - Lua

Sufjan Stevens - Illinoise
Bright Eyes - Digital Ash in a Digital Urn
