Reconstruction

The Oedipus Project is undergoing reconstruction.

We’ve been having problems with SoundCloud, the platform for our music playback.

Soon we will have a new player with all of the music on the site converted into the new format.

New post on Monday the 16th.

Stay tuned…

In the meantime, view baby bald eagles live!

Poly Styrene

Poly Styrene

Sad news as we have learned of Poly Styrene’s death from cancer.

Best known for her seminal work with X-Ray Spex and her female power anthem “Oh Bondage Up Yours!”, we featured her new Christmas song in December.

She had just released her solo album Generation Indigo in late March.

X-Ray Spex released one album in 1978 and then broke up. Germ Free Adolescents is a punk classic and Poly will forever continue to inspire.

“Thrash City” is from her latest solo album. And we’ve included “Oh Bondage Up Yours!” from 1977.

Low, the trio from Duluth, Minnesota, featuring the harmonies of husband/wife principles Alan Sparhawk and Mimi Parker, have just released their ninth album entitled C’mon.

C’mon was recorded in an old church with the rich resonant natural reverberation of the vaulted-ceilings and spacious surroundings .

“Try To Sleep” is a free download from the new album.
