The aim of this blog is to introduce the readers to music that is out of print, commercially unavailable, released under a creative commons license, or with approval by the featured artist. The majority of the music posted here would be considered underground. Don't let that fool you into thinking that the music featured here might be any less enjoyable than that of the mainstream artists you hear on the radio, as this couldn't be further from the truth. Please keep in mind that the majority of the artists that appear on this blog, along with their respective record labels, are not wealthy and need your support. If you enjoy the material that you find here, please support the artists/labels by purchasing their material afterwards. If you are an artist/label that would prefer to have your material removed from this blog, simply leave me a comment, and I would be more than happy to promptly remove the offending post. In addition to running this blog, I also work on a few other projects during my spare time.

Penny's Scar - Pleasures

Penny Moorhed was born in Seville,Spain. She is of French/American descent. She is based out of Cincinnati, Ohio. She has been in the bands Penny Moorhed & EOS. She is currently primarily a solo artists. Her musick is haunting, sexy, experimental. Much of her newer musick is on her Soundclick site, but Pleasures is no longer available.

The last time I went back to Pennsylvania, to see my mother shortly before she died, I saw Penny Moorhed in a small club in Ohio. That must have been in 2004. I got a CDR from her that I have always associated with that journey. Her unique blend of sounds & her haunting storytelling technique is what really lifts this up.

Penny has appeared as guest vocalist on Visible Breath’s Degrees of Light singing the song “Frightened Whisper" & Brooklyn Brawler’s Only the Dead Know Brooklyn:The Prelude on the track “Name of God”. You may not have heard this artist before, but give her a try. I don’t think you will be disappointed.

Year of Release: 2004?
Label: Penny’s Scar CDR
Genre: Acoustic

Take Me Tonight
Wake Up
For Love
Take Your Time
Follow the Devil
Tumbling All the Way

(This is) My Story
It’s Almost Time

Thank you for the Pere Ubu.

Wonderful post. Thanks Nathan.


To derhet,
Since most Ubu is available in one form or another various places, it's hard to come up with something. Although these tracks would later be on cloudland, this is a legitimate release that is not readily available. Glad you liked it.
To roc,
Hope you checked out Penny's Scar. I think it is really good.

i really want to check out Penny's Scar, but the link is dead. Could you please re-upload that one?


thanks for letting me know about the link to Penny's Scar. A lot goes into posting up a selection & then if I don't get around to checking the link, there goes all the work. i really appreciate when someone such as yourself takes the time to let me know. I got a 'file expired' notice from ifile.it even though the file showed regular d'ling. I posted it up on mediafire this time, see if it lasts. thanks again for the heads-up on the dead link.
