“Starling” (stream only)
To be honest, it’s a bit difficult not to get lost in semantics on this one. In conjunction with their new single “Starling,” local indiepop group This Many Boyfriends are releasing a digital fanzine on Angular Recording Co. And isn’t a digital fanzine just a blog? Well not exactly. If you remember the ’90s, it would seem that a fanzine is quite a bit different from what blogs have become. Also there were no mp3s in those days. A sad existence, really.
If you’re looking for the tunes now, head on over to iTunes. But if you want the fanzine the way it should be enjoyed – in your hands with the ability to physically flip through it page-by-page, visit the band at one of the gigs below. The real life version comes with download codes, so it’s not completely retro.
