Happy Elf - Come Back

Wow. It has been a long time. Thanks to Subsystem for getting this started again.

When I decided to post something, the first thing that came to mind was Happy Elf...what is he up to these days? Well, WM Recordings has a release by the contented dutchman. Sex Machine was released in June and has this wonderful little tune.
More grooves, more lyrics and another guest vocalist: welcome to SEXMACHINE, a mini album filled with sounds of legendary synthesizers and dirty guitars.
The title track is not too shabby either, in fact, drop all five tunes into your hard drive for the complete experience.

There, that wasn't too hard.

The Butcher's Ballroom - Diablo Swing Orchestra

Originally released in 2006, The Butcher's Ballroom was added to Jamendo late this July, and we are all very lucky for it. The artist, Diablo Swing Orchestra (DSO), formed in Sweden in 2003 and is described as avant-garde metal. You will see for yourself whether this is an apt description. There is certainly something for everyone's ears. Multiple languages, voices, and instruments.

The Butcher's Ballroom is very well produced, exciting to listen to, and takes you on an all-too-speedy tonal journey from start to finish. DSO will release another album September 21st, called "Sing Along Songs for the Damned and Delirious" -- I just pre-ordered my copy.

I hope you download and enjoy the whole album, but here is the first track since I could not decide what to post:
