hey casiotone fans. here's bedroom-recorded cover of Scattered Pearls - trying to do justice to this absolute tearjerker by slowing it down so the devastating lyrics can shine. Bonus tears: added snippets from an interview with Holocaust survivor Rachelle Ellis talking about her grandmother.

I like the several references to payphones on Etiquette (besides the song with 'payphones' in the title) - I really can't remember the last time I've seen a payphone, but I have seen many fixtures that I can tell used to house payphones, that were ripped out at some point between then and now
где-то читала про Casiotone - большой небритый мужчина под неисправный детский синтезатор поет о том, что песня лучше девушки, она, по крайней мере, не уйдет от тебя..)) хочу уткнуться в этого большого мишку!!!
One of the greater musical endeavors i've discovered recently. you know that feeling where you listen to something for the first time and you realize it's going to a strong relationship between the tunes and your ears? yeah, that's how i feel right now. so brilliant.
as i can see you're not really into lo-fi (at all?) i recommend starting with either etiquette or vs. children, where the latter is simply great if one is contemplating getting a child, and then making the transfer slow by going backwards in chronological order. i remember answering machine being just a bunch of noise and after a while it was the only album i listened to. but i basically took everything (etiquette<->answering) on at once. battery life keeps some damn good covers and one off-singles.
I wonder if Casiotone is becoming a sort of indie seasonal music, with Cold White Christmas getting 6x the plays of any other songs on the "Last Week" charts, and presumably New Year's Kiss will be in the same position once the charts update next week.
On the contrary, "Casiotone for the Painfully Alone" is a fantastic name for a band. Just brilliant. It so perfectly sums up the band's sound that you don't even have to listen to them to know what they're like.
You can't say the same thing about, oh, I don't know, Neutral Milk Hotel.
