Somebody gives him a token to wear. You get one guess who.

I share with you now a gem I tripped across on my FOAF page here on LJ: Sense & Sensibility, chapter by chapter. I have no idea who Kelly R Fineman is, other than a wonderfully entertaining reader of Austen who is on my friends' friends list somewheres.

Today's music is by lowercase noises. You can find vids of him performing all of the music on Ambient Songs live, and you can download the music for free from Band Camp. I should add: I love loops and drones, from the Fripp & Eno to Terry Riley on to anything shoegazey. I love what this guy is doing with a single guitar and a pedalboard.
