My new sounds:
Project 3 crashing through their homage to The Walrus of Love, live at the Cre8 cafe, on the eve before Valentines Day.
3 mics, speckled hen, deep heat and a box of Thorntons….
—The King of Carrot Flowers Pt. One
Today, fourteen years ago, In the Aeroplane Over the Sea was released by Merge, and it went on to define a generation of music. Its unique and intricate songwriting, haunting vocal melodies, and incredibly elaborate instrumentation have not lost a bit of their luster. It is inarguably among one of the greatest albums of the late 20th century. Today we felt it’d be appropriate to celebrate it. Join us in revisiting these songs like the old friends that they are.
Happy birthday, Baby Carrot Two-Headed Flower Boy. Have fun playing pianos filled with flames over the sea. You’re fourteen and loved more and more each passing day.
