I finally got around to ordering a copy of The Great Escape. There’s nothing else to spend money on out here at the secret city, so I finally broke down and bought one through a large online retailer, hang the expense. (I got the “Soul Sisters: Sights and Sounds” album, too, in the same shipment; more on that one later.)

It shows up in a package with another CD, this one by a band called Strange Talking Animals. Close examination determines that it’s been recorded by the guy whose name is on the customs form. He cites JUDY AND MARY, Radiohead and Arc en Ciel as influences.

Talk about small world, theriolalistic world. Of all the people to get some random CD by a random band named “Strange Talking Animals,” it should be me. Of course, this brings up the next question: since the disc isn’t really up my alley, should I bother to scrobble a track? The group’s name seems to imply that I should.

(I have had better luck in the past with throw-ins at purchase time. One day during an scheduled airline stopover in Minneapolis, I went record shopping and ended up with a free Hokey disc. That one I actually liked.)
