Quarter Acre by Simon Sharwood

I just hooked into Red Eye and picked up the new quarter acre album. It’s called bored so i… kicked the shit out of him, which sounds like a LIARS album titled.

But the quarter acres sound nothing like LIARS. Its poppy, enigmatic, noisy and quiet (now you see why I never made it as an album reviewer). I first heard them on FBi last year (or pro-am radio, as pdiddy memorably calls that station). Then last saturday night I heard an early demo on the FBi program cratediggers, found out that the album was out, dropped by their myspace site, where you can hear a selection of trax … and went straight to red eye and picked up the new disc.

I still get a kick out of buying a new album. Checking out the cover art, dropping it into iTunes (no art to scavenge from AMAZON, tho), putting it on high rotation on the iPod, torturing the family with it.

FWIW, these guys are playing the Hopetoun on Sat April 1. All being well, I’ll be there. Look for the geek wearing the “daddytypes” t-shirt.
