Hello, Blue Roses - The Portrait is Finished and I Have Failed to Capture Your Beauty 
Hello, Blue Roses is a collaboration by Dan Bejar (Destroyer, New Pornographers) and his girlfriend Sydney Vermont, a visual artist from Vancouver. This record isn't the most accessible and is a far cry from anything that might be called pop music, about which I have no complaints, but that's a whole 'nother story. While this album is a little dense, I think there are some very worthwhile songs and moments on it. Particularly for fans of Dan Bejar and Destroyer it's worth looking into. And regardless of whether it's your cup of tea, I think this album delves into some scarcely charted musical territory, which could add something new to your music collection. Get it here
Also, could anyone please post a working link to the Swan Lake album 'Beast Moans' from a couple years back? I've only been able to find broken links for it.
