I’ve been meaning to post this for a little while now, but schoolwork and work work have been making that hard. I do apologize for my absence. We’re not going anywhere, we’re just busy sometimes. Still love you. Here are some songs to prove it.
Lynden just posted about Ricky Eat Acid, so I feel that now’s as good a time as any to introduce you to Unlimited Free Milkshakes, a new label headed by Sam (Ricky Eat Acid) and Jasmine (jasminezoo). The name itself gives you a pretty good idea of what they’re all about: simple songs, gooey vibey vibes, hugs, kisses, milkshakes, dancing, and cute emoticons. Sometimes the emoticons dance too.

I’m all about this… the beauty really is in the simplicity. Making songs just to make songs. Sometimes they’re sad because you’re sad, sometimes they’re happy because you’re happy, and sometimes they’re just silly because you want to act like a goon. Sometimes you’re lazy, record eight tracks with a MacBook microphone, and distort the shit out of it. Sometimes you’re not, and end up with something very unique and full of emotion. I’m rambling because this computational science lecture is incredibly boring.
Have a listen for yourself.
Here’s their latest release, a (free) compilation in honor of art week that you can pick up for $7 if you want to perpetuate da lurvz <3
Cute Boy Kissing Booth was the first release I heard from the label, and I love the concept of it:
“A pop/sound art album written and recorded while on Spring break. The original idea for the project was to set every project and obligation I had aside and just write and record music constantly. There would be no rules and no limitations, beyond the time-limit. I did just that.”
Dive into it, download it for free if you love the feelz (or throw them $7 because reasons).
I love you guys, I hope you didn’t lose faith in us. We’ll be around for a long time and we’ll keep posting what we, and hopefully you, love to see and hear. We tend to post a lot of stuff on our Facebook page if you’d like a little more neighborhood in your life. Be well all.
I was listening to Lapalux‘s XLR8R Podcast last night and heard the lovely track “I Got You” for the first time. Minimal bassy electronic soul goodness. Check him out, then give the podcast a listen. Keep up with Hazy Memories on Facebook and head over to XLR8R to download Lapalux’s podcast for free.
