Remembering Vic Chesnutt

You've likely heard by now that Vic Chesnutt left us over Christmas. I found a recording of my first introduction to his music, a demo version of "Mr. Reilly" that was included on a local compilation cassette called "Samizdat" in 1988.

This is actually the first time at Lestermix that I've actually linked to a song not my own that I uploaded myself. Considering that the friends who made the compilation didn't make any money and that they've made no effort to reissue it since then, I see no harm providing it, unless and until the family wishes otherwise.

 

"Memorial" by Abrasions

Through a tweet from Shikhee of Android Lust, I was introduced to the latest album by Abrasions, "Memorial," which is available for free listening on their digital store page. I don't think I really knew about the band before but this is good stuff, and I really like the new trend of making complete albums available for listening through Flash players.
