These things happen – Action Painting!

One of the first records on Sarah i ever heard, long before i became aware of that label’s clout, its “sound” or the importance it would come to have in my life. Maybe even the absolute first. I couldn’t have asked for a better introduction, despite it not really being an introduction at all. I sleep on everything. One of my favourite records Sarah released. I don’t own a copy, though.

These things happen – Action Painting!

One of my favourite mp3 blogs – easily top three, probably all time favourite if i could declare such a thing without early morning fuzziness clouding the memory of any other blog i could permit or prohibit taking that place – is the sadly now defunct Little Hits. It was there i found this song. It was there i found so many great songs i could not find in the record stores around here, on any file sharing network, or through any real life peer network. Songs, great songs, greatest songs, from bands hitherto unavailable if even known to me. This mp3 is a direct rip of theirs. Credit, appreciation and love.

It is not just the superb, vital songs they posted (individually, not as albums), but that they were posted with such older sibling sageness, authority, and coolness that i think this blog above all others. Love, care, and meaning, both personal and to the pop world at large, were imparted with each song. Basically it was everything this thing here is not. Not a trace of whine. Some songs i’ve posted here, and many more to come, are directly from there. They’ve stuck, because someone loved them and then offered them to the world, to me, with all importance placed and exchanged. So thank you.

And thank you to Action Painting. Songs wouldn’t mean something to someone if they were not great songs to begin with.
