Not long ago, I had the opportunity to review the latest album by Columbus, Ohio’s sitcom-core star Electric Grandmother called Listening Party. If you’re scratching your head wondering what in the hell sitcom-core could mean, prepare to have all questions answered.
Behold, the Grandmother’s label Infinite Number of Sounds has all of the artist’s albums available for free download from their website, even the early ones that I thought I’d never get to hear. The Electric Grandmother seems to understand that the meat and potatoes of his art lie in his live shows (just witness the clip below), so offering up this much music for free must be a way to at least get one’s feet wet…until the day you get to see traffic cones and ballons kicked around the room of a small club in front of a backdrop of slides that include, among other things, Bob Saget flipping you off.
