Give them a listen at the band's myspace...
I can't help but notice how many blogs have joined in the countdown to Halloween, many committing to a post a day until.
While I don't personally have the time required to commit to such a posting schedule, I will attempt to share a few Halloween related treats this month.
Mary Shelley Overdrive, one of my recent fave indie bands, has this week released their Bride Of Shock Theatre EP as a free download. Hooray!
"it’s a collection original compositions peppered with covers of tunes by Blue Oyster Cult, New Math and Bauhaus. It’s got a rushed, impromptu sound that I like", said singer Mark Wood. "It sounds very ‘live.’ We didn’t do many takes or spend much time obsessing over details."
Folks, this album rocks. Plain and simple. I highly suggest you give it a listen, and head over to their Website and download the rest of their stuff.
