Lucid Dementia....exclusive remixes


(photo from myspace)

There's cool and then there's fucking awesome. Lucid Dementia is fucking awesome. As you know, I adore this group.

As you all should know, this is an MP3 blog and things can get a little hairy with posting full songs on here. Even though links don't stay "live" for long and it's usually not a problem especially with the indie groups, some labels are much more strict than others, hence the disclaimer on the side bar asking people to please contact me if a link needs to be taken down. Remember, I'm not here to piss people off.

I received a cordial note from Sheldon Reynolds of Lucid Dementia a few weeks ago. he could have easily been a prick about the post and I would have understood, but instead he was incredibly diplomatic:

Hi,
Thank you so much for your kind words about my band. It is fans like
you that keep bands like Luci D going.


Having said that I have to ask you a favor: Please do not include full versions of the songs for download. We are currently signed with a digital distribution deal that does not allow us (or anyone else) to do that.
Free downloadable songs = no distribution deal = we can't afford to replace
broken equiptment, etc...


Please allow me to make you a special remix just for your site. You
tell me what songs you want and I will do it. I can also include parts of
brand new songs no one else has ever heard if you like (as they come...).


Again, thank you so much for your support,

Sheldon Reynolds

His willingness to offer exclusive remixes was very generous and I think this drives home just how "with it" he is about internet exposure and such. Musicians have every right to be protective of their artwork, therefore I am very grateful when a musician, especially one with such a devout fan base, is willing to give a little extra in appreciation of his fans. The following remixes are of songs off of their latest album The List and contain snippets of new and unreleased material. Be sure to tell Sheldon thanks!

Listen to:
"Queer"(remix)
"FUTWTF" (remix featuring unreleased song "WTF")
"When"(remix featuring sample from new song "Fall Apart")
