Published Dec 17, 2010Well, here's something sweet to further brighten up the Friday. Postdata, the project helmed by Wintersleep frontman Paul Murphy, has shared a trio of previously unreleased tracks.
As Murphy explains in a statement, the songs aren't Christmas numbers, but outtakes from Postdata's underrated 2010 debut. Nevertheless, they do come thanks to the spirit of giving.
Over to Murphy:
Hey there Postdata friends/enthusiasts. Another year whistling by. I had a dream last night in which it turned out that Santa Claus was real. I was at a party and he was there, digging in [I dare say] a little heavily into the punch. He was in good enough spirits I suppose but I kept feeling a cold vibe from him, as if he really held against me all those years of non-belief. Maybe he just wanted all the punch. Bastard. Anyway, it made me feel guilty. Not guilty, but maybe it just made me feel like giving. And so here is a couple songs that weren't included on the Postdata s/t album proper.. Recorded with Mike during an Easter break. What is with all the work on holiday weekends?! I have to start thinking about Christmas lit, not specifically Christmas in theme, just something to read on my travels to Yarmouth. Any suggestions?
