“The ones before me were more graceful…”
It’s rather unfortunate that this post has to be done posthumously. It was only months ago that I was all too excited about the newly discovered Jocasta Sleeps, as evidenced by my previous post back in August. The Glasgow three piece, much much much to my dismay, has since decided to amiably call it quits and move in different directions. If I could even dare to suggest there is one positive thing about the situation, it’s the fact that the band has released a large bundle of tracks – acoustic demos, b-sides, and their debut single – for free download. The package of tracks can be downloaded directly here, and my two favorites are available below. “Old Ideas” is one of the most beautiful tracks I’ve heard in a long time.
