Life is crazy, and gives you things you never expected. You can end up being someone you never thought you wanted to be, and even when you end up being that person you didn’t think you would be, it’s totally different than the image of it that you had in your mind. Because the image you had in your mind didn’t involve the person that you love. I guess that’s what’s missing from those imagined realities, and what makes them only as valuable as the presence or absence of that one person. I wouldn’t have it any other way.

I missed this mixtape last year because life was just really busy. Not a great excuse, but it’s the one I got. We’re five years in and it’s only getting better.

Sean Nicholas Savage - “Naturally”

Well naturally. 

Sean Nicholas Savage – She Looks Like You

…but he’s not me.

Sean Nicholas Savage - Chin Chin

It’s been a busy year for my favorite Canadian psycho-lounge singer. Sean Nicholas Savage has caught the prolific bug, and has just released his third and final release of 2011, just in time to jump on your “Favorite Albums of 2011” lists.

Flamingo is such a pleasant ride. One that has a consistent and easy going rhythm throughout. Sean’s music is a coexistence of boyish innocence, yet groaning heart-break. Simultaneously simple and complex. But above all, SNS wouldn’t be SNS without being mystifyingly strange. And Flamingo lacks at none of these. 

Enjoy Chin Chin above, which, in the words of beloved Arbutus Recordsis a celebration of ”the every morning electric chin kiss – perhaps for the first time in music history!”

Get the whole album here, or from Arbutus Records, both of which you can pay or no pay.

Those magical souls just on the other side of our northern border, that create the force known as Arbutus Records have conviened once more. This time bringing us a split cassette as beautiful as it is fun.
One half is filled with the musical landscapes, and subtle Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle themed tracks of Kool Music. Jasper Baydala makes these sounds, and his knack for visual art is almost as evident to the ear, as I’m sure it is to the eye. 
The other half comes to us via the other worldliness of one of my favorites, Sean Nicholas Savage. Those alien eyes do nothing but entrap you in his odd, romantic croonings, surely serving as some sort of intergalactic lounge singer. In any case it’s more of the Sean we love, plus some new Sean experiments, like the spacey psyche UFO below.
Download and order the cassette right from the horses mouth here.
