Audio Nuggets 6/13

For those of you who used to be down with the now defunct San Francisco band Pleasure Forever, your time to bask in the glory days is here. Conspiracy Records has put together a collection of eight unreleased songs, B-sides and rarities, titled Bodies Need Rest, which was released May 29th. Here's one track from it:

Pleasure Forever - Miles Underneath : Bodies Need Rest

Ready for a new face to listen to this summer? Try giving Frankel a spin. Michael Orendy, the man behind the moniker, plays virtually every instrument on Lullaby for the Passerby, his debut full length album which hit shelves yesterday. Try out the first two tracks of the album below. Thermostat is a peppy little number that kicks things off in a high note (which reminds me of another acoustic signer / songwriter type, Aaron Schroeder, who I wrote about last year) while Tooth Decay slows things right down with a cymbal crashing in the background like you're on your death bed. And if An Aquarium Drunkard says “Absolutely an artist to watch out for in 2007," you know you have to at least try a little bite.
