It's a complaint that's as old as the ages - you want to sing a birthday song for someone on that special day, but you hate having to pay those doggone royalties! The Ice Weasels want to help you, because they care. They care, in this cold, unforgiving world. Their latest MP3-single features the glee-club friendly "Royalty-Free Birthday Song" and the delicious strum-pop misery of "The Case of the Empty Whiskey Bottle." Available only for a limited time (and we mean it!)
New Love, Execution Style album: Quick Release. Go here for three lovely new MP3s. We hope you'll like their new direction: Tubby-influenced dub, Mexican horns, a six-part string section, and garage rock reverb, all in the same song! Recorded as part of NaSoAlMo!
The Ice Weasels would like to say "Hello, world" without sounding like a Nike commercial or a page from Kernighan and Ritchie. And they have done so, with their first (of twelve) single - welcome to a year in the life of the Ice Weasels!! That's right, a new single every month. The Ice Weasels is the new manifestation of pop master Dead Dog, a name you can trust. "Sign me up! Where do I pay?" you may ask, while throwing wads of cash at my feet. Whoa, whoa, slow down there, cowboy! They're free. You heard me. And you can only get them here. "Brown Boxes" is a fabulous wistful pop tune with hooks galore, and "Spalding Gray Is Missing" is a pensive number about the mystery that has an answer we probably don't want to hear.
And don't forget these other quality Dead Dog-related projects (all tracks are free downloads!):

The Last Party on Planet Venus
One-time Pad by Love, Execution Style was reviewed in the January issue of fakejazz and a 10/12 rating was bestowed upon the album. The new Kraftwerk CD was given a 4/12 rating in that same issue. So, that means that Love, Execution Style are two and a half times better than Kraftwerk. Hot dog!!
|Yikes! The new Love, Execution Style album, One-time Pad, is finally ready after three years (!!) in the making. THREE YEARS! And boy, does it sound like it. This is, without a doubt, the finest effort yet from Love, Execution Style, squeezing layers and layers of instruments into each song until it explodes like a swollen piñata, scattering charred pieces of candy and broken toys everywhere. A new level of comical bitterness and self-deprecation has also been reached with their intricately crafted rhymes. Alcoholism, social diseases, shame, alienation, dental mishaps...and that's just in one song! Other themes on the album are: the itinerant hotel life, insomnia, separation, self-destructing relationships, couple-busting, adultery, espionage, and so much more. Plus, the packaging is without equal - the album cover is a full-size "Do Not Disturb" sign, to be hung on your doorknob, and you also get two sleeping pills and a lyric booklet. And, if that wasn't enough, the CD comes with eight bonus songs - more fascinating and hilarious custom-made music tracks. If you need to be convinced any further, then listen to two tracks in mp3 form: "Another Weekend in an Empty Hotel" and "Ex." Buy it today! Only $7 for 60 minutes of fantastic music.

We are so naughty, and we need to be taught a lesson.
Yes, our mail order service has been out of commission for far too long.
But hey, we're back in the saddle, dishing out CDs and tapes to the world
like an old, toothless woman pouring bowls of porridge for Oliver Twist
and his filthy friends, but without the sagginess, and without the meanness,
and the porridge would taste really good, and our customers are mostly
clean and practice good hygiene and aren't damn limey kids. Okay, maybe
that's not a good simile. And if you say "More please," we will respond
with a "Here you go, enjoy!" while our eyes flutter prettily. We
won't beat you with a half-chewed leg of lamb. That would not be
a good business practice. Check out the Ordering
Information page for our new mail order address!
Gleet and Gumma Records announces the mp3-only release of GG043: the last party on planet earth. It was recorded by an alien who woke up after a big beach party and realized that his mothership had left without him, leaving him with only a Sears Silvertone acoustic guitar, a "Rhythm Tech" (?!) tambourine, a microphone, and a battery-operated four-track tape recorder. Do not be afraid.
We now happily accept PayPal
for payments! Apparently, these PayPal people are giving away money
just for signing
up. It's true - you get $5 for signing up (you need to enter
in a credit card number), and we get $5 too, because it's double-wacky.
It's legit. MC Hammer pops out of nowhere and starts making some
odd hand gestures in order to demonstrate its legitimacy. Reginald
says "Check writing - how passé!" Questions?
