i'm still not used to writing it, typing it, or saying it. yet here it is. and here we are. the new year. ready or not, right?
well, here's what's new [or somewhat new] with us  two months in.
we were name dropped in a post on the beautiful music blog. it's from july of last year, but it's new to us & so we pass it along to you. if we're mentioned in the same breath as great bands such as some goreous accident & sonnet lviii in a post assessing the current shoegaze scene--i think we're at least making some sort of impact. :)
even further back to april 2009 leads us to sindyan qasem & his one step beyond blog/podcast. he has been a champion of our music in the leipzig, germany indie pop scene since the beginning. we are highly appreciative of his efforts to further our music!
japanese artist takafumi shirai of electronica act, american green [in an interview by bad panda records this past december] named our cover of darlene love's classic "christmas [baby please come home]" when asked to name  one song that he liked. :)
we got a couple of votes for the "most promising new act" &  one vote for "favourite band of the year" on the tweenet individual poll 2009. seeing as we weren't aware of the poll & didn't even know we would be considered for any category--it's an honour just to be nominated. hahaha. [didn't think we'd ever get a chance to say that clichè!]
