Tom Robinson's Execution

I mentioned about Lost From Atlas's free EP the last time I blogged. And the day after, I got the EP from Pill. It's an amazing piece of work.

It's not all new, since 'Tom Robinson Must Die!' has been around for a while, and so has the first interlude. But it's still a brilliant collection of tracks that are definitely Lost From Atlas. The whole EP is about 16 minutes long, and includes a live track called 'Smalltown Gypsy Massacre.'

The first time I heard this EP, I made the mistake of listening to it while really tired and on my bed. The two cinematic and soothing interludes became wonderful lullabies. But don't mistake that as boring. When you have the time to appreciate it (i.e. not bloody sleepy and tired out of your fucking mind) then you'll find that Lost From Atlas's instrumental wonders of song are rewardingly exhilirating and invigorating.

Download the EP. You've got nothing to lose. It's free. And yes, it's legal.

By the way, the lovely Rob Jones, also delightfully known as 'The Voluntary Butler Scheme,' has come out with a single about two days ago. It's the excellently named 'Tabasco Sole.' This guy is charming, funny and has a wonderful sense of humour when he's writing his songs.

The video for Tabasco Sole has been out for a few months now. Well, it's basically just a group of line dancers dancing to the song. But as simple as it is, I think it's very, very charming.

I think you can still get the 'Vol-Au-Vent' EP for free from him. Just go to his myspace and look for it. I can't remember where it is. By the way, the Tabasco Sole single is one off his soon-to-be-released debut album.

Rob Jones has become somewhat of a darling in the world of one-man-bands and charmingly funny lyrics.
