The Liar's Rosebush & Scrap.edx - Collect: Erase
There once were these two kids that lived in two different countries sitting around making some cool music. They didn't know each other and probably didn't have a single pube to split between the two of them, but they both were already blosseming as young artists. They send their music out, and one of them gets signed to a small indie label that hardly anyone has heard of, and both are heard and appreciated by a select few. Then all of a sudden they hear about this wonderful place, a winter wonderland where there are beavers and wood nymphs and streets paved with smiles, and this place is called Toronto. A magical DJ lives there and this magical DJ is putting on a huge festival. He talks to both of them and they end up talking to each other and although they haven't even met each other, they agree to perform together and the huge festival is called Saturation Bombing and these two kids call themselves The Liar's Rosebush and Scrap.edx, and the DJ, of which it is later revealed, isn't magical and in truth, not a very good DJ, is named Squid. The Liar's Rosebush and Scrap.edx kick ass on stage during the festival and everyone's suddenly talking about them and wondering the question, 'will these two ever get together and put out an album?' And times goes by and that's the end of that. Well, these kids took that time, grew a few pubes, and planned and waited and suddenly they emerge at last as men, fully grown, and what do you know, they have indeed released an album, a split disc on Hive Records, Collect: Erase, and the little bitches have really got it down. The fucks can really lay down the beats, and mix the shit up, amazingly all over the place and yet with a overall structure that holds the chaos together.
