The Best of Scavenged Luxury

Almost all of this music is still unavailable on services like Spotify and Pandora, and much of it is simply not available commercially at all. But a few of the bands (like Marina Swingers and the Deadbeats) have reformed or created websites where their music can be purchased. My next post will be a series of links to these sites. In the meantime, enjoy!

I haven't given any credit as of yet to the many amazing music blogs that long predated mine, and from which I've drawn a lot of my material prior to purchasing a turntable. My rationale has been that I think some of them would not too much attention drawn to them due to legal consequences, especially as most of them contain entire LPs and EPs for download. As it is, a lot of these blogs have been somewhat gutted by legal actions during the years that I've been visiting them, especially those sites that housed their files on Megaupload.

One site that I will mention, though, is Pig State Recon, partly because they seem to post only single tracks or small compilations, and partly because I've used some of their choices as my own from the catalogues of some of the artists. Tracks from this set such as Twisted Roots' "Every Party Song," Magnolia Thunderpussy's "Circle" and Jon 'n' Mike's "Everywhere" were found on Pig State Recon (I actually own the Twisted Roots CD but haven't listened to it much). In a few cases we picked the same tracks for posting, such as Electric Peace's "Case of Dynamite," with no knowledge of the other.
