COTD bloggings

GoogleBlogs has just turned up a couple of odd little references to Children of the Drone.

This is from rosieadkinsni's LiveJournal blog:

New Children of the Drone album

Why not download and relish Children of the Drone's Compilation No. 7? It Holds free, and I'm sure you can save some infinite in your ears. You will likewise be delighted to notice that it Holds good.

The whole blog is inexplicably written in this weird, disjointed style, as if it's been put through BabelFish several times – worth taking a look...

And why not download Compilation No. 8? (It also "Holds good", I reckon, and relatively few people have thus far).

This one's from the blog "Engendered from Divine Breath" dedicated to freely released music, here reviewing an album by Least Carpet:

Least Carpet Least Carpet (Dying for Bad Music/Bandcamp)

Certainly, Least Carpet neither does deliver the extravagancy or ecstasy of freak folk, nor it is the part of the Eastern and Central European traditional music movements - as opposed to what is being mentioned in their home label website, except for Old Wedding Song, which treats the Hungarian folk music with some rhythmic influences from the Balkan Peninsula. The experimental side is primarily reflected through growings from harmonies into long droning keys, and skilful using of guitar and its effects within ethnic instrumentals. All of those who are being familiar with the Children Of The Drone (and its adjacent projects), and Six Organs Of Admittance, however, it will constantly be telling you of belonging intrinsically to the Indian music tradition. And the parallels can also be drawn with Charalambides' dragging psych lines.

I've not heard Least Carpet yet, but it's encouraging that we're mentioned in the same sentence as Six Organs of Admittance.
