OMG OMG OMG a new Ladybug Transistor record!! Life just got more awesome. This was released ten minutes ago on the Fortuna POP! label, and it is EXACTLY what I needed this morning. I have been a Ladybug Transistor fan since their first album in the mid-90’s helped me through school and various other travails. They are close to my heart, so I am very glad to report, their latest effort is as beautiful as I’d hope. There’s as much love and care put into every part and every sound, as there is to the composition and lyrics. Understated yet marvelously expansive. I’d stop gushing, but I can’t. Listen to this, pick up the album, see ’em on tour. This is GR8 talent, forget about that stupid karaoke game show. Bye now.
