problem resolved

Just a quick note to point out that have finally fixed the bug that was preventing Some Of These Numbers Mean Something from being available as more than 30 second previews on their site.

So if you've so far resisted the urge to buy it, you can listen to the whole thing on demand here (provided you live in certain countries, anyway).

Darkroom on SoundCloud

SoundCloud seems to be the big thing getting all the hype right now, so we've jumped on the bandwagon.

First impressions are good - it's a nice bit of web design, good looking and easy to use. It remains to be seen whether it's actually of any use.

And here's a special treat (since the page for SOTNMS is still bugged - grrr) - a whole track from the new album, via the SoundCloud embeddable music player. Enjoy!

Os's profile

Just in case anyone wants to up their cyber-stalking of Darkroom band members, my profile is here:

Caveat: I share my iTunes library with my wife, so the charts and playlists you see will be skewed slightly. I, for example, am not a great Tori Amos fan, contrary to what would have you believe.

We recently uploaded all the Darkroom material, well, pretty much ever, to You can find it here:

For those not familiar with

" connects you with your favorite music, and uses your unique taste to find new music, people, and concerts you'll like."

It's a web 2.0 social networking kind of thing, and relies to some extent on people tagging the music they listen to, but also just tracks what music you play and works out what else you might like.

Unfortunately it's utterly brain-dead when it comes to handling multiple bands with the same name. Basically, it can't. Of course, there's more than one Darkroom in the world and so we share the page. Which is why you'll find 'Darkroom' prominently tagged as 'indie' on the site. We may be many things, but I'd suggest that 'indie' is not one of them. So, Darkroom fans - or should I say, fans of The One and True Darkroom (us) - get tagging.

PS I just noticed Darkroom (presumably the other Darkroom) has been tagged as 'nice'. I ask you, who tags music as 'nice'? (If it's you, dear reader, let us know)
