“Lies. Lies. As if all lies were true.” Embarrassingly, I don’t know if I wrote that or not. It’s one of the oldest lines in my head, and I genuinely can’t remember if it was the closing sentence of one of my own hideous poems written around the age 15, or if credit is owed [...]
Seamstress For the Band is a funny sort of blog. We decided to combine little pieces of prose (by us) with a song (not by us.) We don't write about music. We write along side it.
We choose songs we love, without preferential treatment to what is new/popular/unheard of/faster/slower/happier/sadder. We do our best to keep a good blend: something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue, and then we offer it to you like a proposal, a bouquet of lemon jonquils, a tiny gold band, a partnership between words and music.
All MP3s are offered as samples for a period of 1-2 weeks. Please support artists by purchasing albums legally.
PC users: RIGHT + CLICK on the song title and "Save Target As" to the folder you would like to save the mp3.
