One of my absolute favorite bands, The Tear Garden, has a new album out. Maybe. I downloaded a copy off the web, but you can’t buy it from their record label yet (http://www.subconsciousrecords.com/beyond/). I’ve seen things on the interwebs saying that it should have been released in April. I’ve seen a few links that say “Click here to buy it” and you click there and nothing is to be bought. So who knows if it’s really been released?
Really, I intend to buy this one. I buy everything put out by The Tear Garden. Their album “To be an Angel Blind, The Crippled Soul Divide” is totally on my list of 10 albums I’d take with me should I somehow end up marooned on an island. One of my Fantasy Football teams is called “Tear Garden”.
I looked in the corners of the internet and found a copy of the album. The new album is much more experimental and electronic than the previous few albums and that’s fine. I’m not as immediately taken by it as I was by their last two or three albums but it’s still better than most anything else out there. Of course, I’ve only heard it twice so it hasn’t had a chance to grow on me yet.
So go out there and look. Maybe you’ll be able to buy it some day soon.
